Look at you! You’ve taken on the massive task of planning an event that can make a massive impact in the lives of people. Whether you’re planning a conference, a retreat, a one night event, a volunteer celebration, a fundraiser or an amazing party, we know that purposeful planning can lead to a powerful event. 

This resource is filled with the pages that we, at Leading and Loving It, use to create all of our conferences, events and cohorts. It’s a step-by-step guide meant to be marked up and messed up as you walk through the planning process. We’ve made it digital so that you can use and reuse it with each event you plan for years to come. 

So, print it out and grab your markers and colored pencils to jot everything down. Or drop it on your ipad or computer so you can dump all of your ideas and creativity in one convenient spot. If you end up with a pristine workbook by the close of your event, then we’ve done something very wrong.

These pages have served us well for over a decade, and our hope is that they will serve you from your biggest idea to your tiniest detail.

This guide is for the leader who wants to:

  • Boost your impact by creating a felt need focused event. 
  • Replace a ho-hum event with a powerful experience by clarifying your vision. 
  • Change confusion in the details to confident next steps in your planning.
  • Gain the tools to build an empowered and effective volunteer team.
  • Integrate the systems needed to take you from overwhelmed to organized.
