Should or shouldn't I get my party shoes on? (Creating 5* events on a 2* budget)

An informal monthly group for Cambridgeshire business women to meet like-minded people as well as exchange ideas and experiences. No membership, no booking required, & only £10 on the door to cover room hire, food and drink.

This month, Sabine Edwards from Pendleton Events helps you to understand whether you should be considering corporate entertainment, what are the benefits and advantages vs disadvantages?

Corporate events cost a fortune don't they?  How can a small business even start to compete with the big events that are around?  There are so many other things the company could be spending money on so why events?What constitutes Corporate Entertainment? Should I use a Corporate Entertainment company/agent or should I do it myself? (Some events really can be done in-house but others are more affordable when booked through an agent) - advantages and disadvantages of using agents/consultants and what type of agent/consultant.

    So sorry I wasn't able to attend this morning. Woke up feeling absolutely dreadful and it has continued in the same vein all day. Hope to be able to come to the next meeting.

    Very thought provoking presentation. Interesting to think how important PR events are (and how affordable) for the smallest business to make an impact on their clients. Thank you Sabine.

    I did think as a small business £10 was an 'unnecessary expense' but actually i was wrong! It was brilliant and the amount of things i learnt in a short space of time - truly worth it and i would recommend to anyone! Thankyou very much Sabine.

    Really enjoyed having my mind opened to something I'd previously thought was irrelevant to me - thanks, Sabine!

    Well, there certainly wasn't anything '2 star' about this session!
    I had never considered my business big or important enough to need to entertain clients, but after listening to Sabine share invaluable information about why it's important and how it can be done impressively with little expense, I now realise what a great business opportunity I've been ignoring.
    I shall be recommending Sabine to every business owner I know, whether their business is large or small, and will definitely be employing many of her ideas.
    Thank you so much Sabine for awakening me to the potential of not-so-corporate entertaining!
