WPE2015 Speaker Focus: meet Kelly Chandler
We are nearly there! Wedding Planning Excellence is in just over a week, plans are being finalised, speakers are ready (some are even flying in from overseas!). We are truly looking forward to spending a couple of days being inspired by some of the best, and walking away feeling positive, fully recharged and ready for the new season.
Sadly all good things come to an end, and so does our Speaker Focus series – today we’re introducing you to the last (but definitely not least) of our speakers, Kelly Chandler of The Bespoke Wedding Company, who’s held a position of Directorship with the UKAWP, alongside Bernadette and Sandy, for seven years, and has been running her own wedding planning and consulting company for 12 years.
Kelly has worked with all sorts of clients on a number of challenging projects – she has, therefore, developed the kind of experience that makes her the best person to talk to us about the one subject no one ever talks about: “When nuptials turn nasty”
If you are relatively new to the industry, you often feel like you want to book every client that comes your way. Our helpful nature makes us want to do everything we can to keep clients happy, but the truth is, sometimes not all clients have affinity with us, and not all weddings go according to plans. When that happens, feelings of frustration can come across the wrong way, with difficult emails being exchanged resulting in us feeling increasingly overwhelmed.
Through this session held on Friday 27th at 2.30pm, Kelly will discuss how to deal with challenging clients and testing projects, ensuring we stay true to our business values and still get the job done.
If you haven’t met the “queen of calm” yet, this is your chance to come and learn from one of the finest planners the UK has to offer. For now, here’s a summary of who Kelly is, what makes her heart skip a beat, her biggest achievement, and her favourite quote (which, apparently, was given to her by our Director, Bernadette, as a Christmas present – we love those words!)
If you haven’t booked your seat, there is still a chance to do so. Head over to the registration page and take that one step towards your personal and business growth that your deserve.
Investment is £375 (£325 for UKAWP members) for each day or £675 for both days, and it includes all presentations and course notes, food and refreshments.
We are looking forward to welcoming you at WPE!
