Wedding Planning Excellence '09: 22 days to go…

Recently the directors of the alliance stumbled across a quotation that had us laughing and frankly nodding in agreement. So I felt it only right we shared it with you our fellow colleagues and in many cases friends:

“Don’t wait for a light to appear at the end of the tunnel, stride down there….and light the bloody thing yourself” – Sara Henderson, Australian outback manager & writer

Apologies if the minor swearing offends anyone but this quotation is so very true for the wedding planning industry. There is so much negativity in the world today that it can be hard to remain positive and believe in yourself.

Don’t wait for clients to knock on your door – go and knock on their door

Don’t wait for the economy to pick up – go and kick start the economy yourself

Don’t fill your day with the constant negativity– say NO actually, 2009 will be my best year; I will not tolerate negativity around me

The directors have received so many phone calls from planners emphasizing their excitement about our Wedding Planning Excellence ’09 seminar. The seminar is only available to trading planners, no enthusiasts and no vendors which appears to be a huge bonus as planners have reiterated they don’t want to be sold to, they want to learn. WPE ’09 is for planners ready to keep on learning in order to increase their profit margins. The programme has been designed to challenge the way we all operate encouraging us out of our comfort zone, definitely something we need to do this year.
In the run up to the seminar we will be posting full details on the schedule and all speakers so do keep checking back on the blog. Should you wish to find out more information regarding the seminar please visit the events section of our website or call me on 01376 561 544

With warm wishes,
