Fireside Wine With a Wedding Planner: An informal “chat workshop” for wedding consultants

fireside wine wed planContinuing the Wedding Planner Mentorship Series is  Fireside Wine With a Wedding Planner, an informal “chat workshop”, which will explore in more detail two of the most popular topics from the Wedding Planner Newcomer PowerLunch #1 on October 25th and the encore presentation from January 31st. You spoke and we listened.  The top two topics requested for more intense detail from our last workshop were:  1) Deciding What You Will Offer (packages, hourly rates, the extent of types of coordination/planning/design) and  2)  Marketing & PR for the Independent Contractor & Small Business:  Cost-Effective,  Powerful Methods (including tune-up tips for current endeavors to capture revenue during this prime booking season of now through February, plus, the most damaging phrases/words in marketing and the reason many brands derail.

+PLUS+ Bonus Content: Delving into the one factor no form, market research, budget projection or potential client filter questionnaire can do for you with regard to sales & booking new business.  We will continue to take a more in-depth look at that #1 Source of Revenue we discussed in our first two full PowerLunch workshop experiences  & the factor many miss when building their wedding planning business.  Bring your most pressing questions, because this informal chat workshop around the cozy fire allows for some personalized consultation!

From a local Santa Barbara Wedding Coordinator/Floral Design Business & previous attendee of Fireside Wine With a Wedding Planner:  “…thank you so much for the coaching last night!  I appreciate your time and great ideas.  I look forward to more of your expertise advice through either these coachings or chat series.”

Fireside Wine With a Wedding Planner offers a fresh approach to the term “workshop” in a relaxed, elegant setting with a view around a delicious, cozy fire as we sip wine and Certified Wedding Professional and owner /founder of Santa Barbara Wine Country Weddings & Events & Engaging Inspiration   Kerry Lee (Dickey) Doehr leads the group with key points inviting collaboration and discussion throughout the gathering, sharing many “secrets” she has implemented in her long-standing, successful Santa Barbara wedding planning business for over 15 years.  While this particular workshop is ideal for those who attended the sold-out October 25th workshop, or the one on January 31st, anyone who is in the wedding or hospitality industry is welcome to attend.  In order to keep the nature of this “chat workshop”  intimate and personal, we are limiting it to 15 guests maximum.  All reservations are on a first come, first-served basis and we will not be accepting walk-ins or bookings “day of”, so make sure you secure your space.
