If you have been to Costco, Micheal’s, Joann’s, or many other stores, you have seen the Christmas stuff is already out. I know what you are thinking, Christmas is months away. But to plan the very best, you should start now. I have put together a PDF of 15 Tips for Corporate Party Planning. Some may seem like common sense but when you are in the heat of the moment, common sense can go out the door.


Love it or Hate it: It’s Time to Plan Your Corporate Christmas Party

A Few Tips:

Below are a few selections from my 15 tips and some comments on them.

To get the PDF of all the tips just click the link to fill out this form with your email and name (I don’t share your info with anyone): click here.

Tip #1: Always plan ahead. If you are renting a venue, you will need to secure it as far in advance as possible. Some places can book up to a year in advance.     I know you’ve heard it before but it is always worth repeating, “Plan early!”

Tip #4: Make sure to send out your invitations at least 3 to 4 weeks ahead of your event. In additions, do not forget to ask your guests to RSVP, so you know how many people will be attending.

Tip #14: Communication is a major key to the success of an event. If you are using vendors, make sure that they have very clear and specific instructions of what you are expecting of them.   Yes, some of us are, “mind readers” but don’t leave that to chance. Just let us know what you want so we can help you make your event a success.
