Unless you own and run an Event Company organising a business workshop on The Gold Coast can be a scary proposition. Knowing just where to start is the hardest part and it really doesn’t get any easier from there. One thing to keep in mind is that a bad workshop will do more harm than good to your team so it’s important that you get the basics right from the start. The team at AMG coaching are experts in organising business workshops and below you will see a very simple checklist that will get your workshop planning started in the right direction.

Set your Goals

Knowing what you want to achieve from your workshop is the single most important decision you will make. Do you want to increase sales, have a better customer experience or improve internal processes withing your business? Defining your end goal will help you to plan the appropriate structure and materials required to keep your team focused and motivated throughout.

Who is Involved

Ensuring that you have the right people attending the workshop is key to achieving the end goal. There is no point inviting staff that the workshop doesn’t apply to, especially a sales focused workshop. If you are holding a workshop that deals with a broader solution for your company then it would be more the merrier with different points of views actually helping in the end result. AMG Coaching can help you to define your goals so that you can achieve the desired result fort your business.

The right location

Finding the right location for your workshop is important for many reasons. Finding the right room that will inspire your team and have enough room to meet your needs could be the difference between a successful or unsuccessful workshop. If you are having a smaller more intimate workshop, then you don’t require a huge room where sound won’t carry properly, or you staff feel like they can’t connect to each other. I can’t stress the importance of a good venue more, do your research and don’t settle for something that doesn’t suit your needs. 

Set your Agenda

You have set your goals and you also know who is going to attend your workshop it’s time to set an agenda. Developing an agenda that will keep your team focused for the duration and should also welcome input from any member who wishes to contribute. The more time you spend on your agenda to maximise the time spent with your attendees will make your business workshop on The Gold Coast one not to be missed.

Follow up

A particularly important aspect to every business workshop is how you follow up the attendees. Some people don’t work their best in a group environment and might feel more comfortable giving their thoughts after the fact. Follow up is key to really getting the best out of your workshop, feedback whether positive or negative will all help in the development of your next workshop.

So, as you can see there is more than meets the eye when planning your business workshop on The Gold Coast. If you follow this simple checklist though, you are on your way to a successful workshop, one that people will enjoy attending.
