I received a call many months ago from a young lady who lives in Nigeria. She is currently a planner. Yoyo (Yewande) has decided she wants to better her organizational skills to gain more exposure. I am proud to announce she will be coming here to NY for some private lessons Jan 5th and 6th 2010. If you are around our Summit location, please come by to say hello to her! We couldn't be more excited for your visit Yoyo! Your going to love NJ/NY! Keep your eyes open for another student from Australia who is working her way here as well! It is absolutely amazing that I am able to meet planners from all over the world! We can learn from each other! I am so excited!!! Have a great weekend everyone! xo Sam
First I would like to thank each and every student that has attended the CAES course in Summit NJ! Everyone has been extremely gracious with emails and calls! I need to get better at taking more photos during class and post them! I want to show everyone how absolutely awesome you are! I've finally gotten my act together and formatted a separate course for design. We have talked about doing this for a year now and one of my resolutions is to offer more of a variety! After all, I wouldn't want my parents hard earned money to go to waste! I should be teaching Kindergarten, but I have to admit this is much more fun! Event Design With Basic Coordination: Date Jan 23rd 2010 PRICE HAS BEEN REDUCED BY $100!Thanks to our local vendor donations for better education! We have 5 openings as of 12/17/09!!! This class will consist of schematics of design, color wheel, linens, rentals, lighting, texture vs no texture, layout and centerpiece design. Please make note, this is not the floral class which is taught monthly. We will still continue the 2 hour course with an award winning florist for $250! Please check my blog for dates in 2010. This class is for those who want to focus their speciality in design with coordination of anything that relates to details. You should have some basic event experience before attending this course. Unfortunately, I can only accommodate 8 students not 10! You will be assembling a few types of decor and we have space allotted for 8! Fee: $700 Date: 1-23-2010 Location: !2 Bank Street Suite 201 Summit NJ 07901 Time: 10am to 6pm (It's a long one! Wear comfy shoes!) Contact our Special Events Coordinator Lacey Borman Cohen at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info and to reserve your space. CAES 200 Beginning Planning January 9th 2010 This class has also been reduced by our local vendors who give donations for those who cannot afford education due to unemployment or restricted schedules. The fee of $695 is now $550! You must qualify for financial assistance to receive this discount. This course has 3 available openings! Hurry to get in while the price is hot! This course is for the novice planner. The CAES 200 teaches the basic essentials to coordinate Day and Month of Coordination. You will work on time lines, sales methods, organizational skills, client assessments, where to begin in this crazy market and the fundamental skills you must have in order to succeed! This includes vendor relationships, venue information and much more! You will be required to intern at one of our offices as well as visiting some of the local venues in your neighborhood. You will need to work an event with a certified planner as an assistant and then asked to complete your own event which will be given to you by Samantha Goldberg. You may use this one event to begin your portfolio. Date: January 9th 2010 Saturday Time: 9:30 to 4pm Location: 12 Bank Street Suite 201 Summit NJ Fee $695 10 Students Max Please call Lacey at 908.219.4028 for more information or email at email@example.com Are you done working for someone else yet? Do you want to break into the industry and learn the RIGHT way to begin? We have hands on workshops to get you out there the right way! This course may be 1 day of theory, but many weeks of on the job training with yours truly or another established planner on our staff!
I devote my time to ensuring our clients recieve fab service. There's another "calling" for me. To give back to my peers that aspire to be the next "best" fancy pants somebody! Those who play it safe standing behind me, will fail. I do serve as a warning to others and yes, I'm nutty. It's who I am & it's not going to change, as it works. Feel free to comment & join me on what could be the best road trip EVER!
