I’ve created a FREE workbook to help you DESIGN the perfect event – get it here!

Are you a DIY event planner who would love some tools and techniques to help you create great events? 

Or maybe you produce events all the time but would love to know if there’s a better, more efficient way to get things done.  You may have done plenty before and it’s not rocket science, but it shouldn’t be that hard right?  The stress can be ridiculous, the pressure from supervisors overwhelming, not to mention audience expectations.  I get, I do, I’ve been there for the past 25+ years.

 But I wanted to have fun creating amazing experiences for my clients and audiences, so I created this effective system.

Meeting presentation

  2. Working with budgets
  3. Event project planning

Items 1-10 are delivered across 1 day and cost $349. This 1 day will provide everything you need to design, plan and launch your event

And if you’re ready to create an event that’s ready to deliver, you can add the “event production workshop day” for an extra $149 when you book both days together.

The Event Production Workshop day offers the opportunity to work through operational planning, risk assessments, what resources are required and the specific logistics requirements to deliver on your vision.  This day is run back to back with the Event Planning Workshop to ensure maximum learning in the shortest period of time.

Fill in your details to find out more, and I will send you a little booklet full of ideas and information on how to book. 

Event Planning Workshops!

Who is this workshop for?

This is not an event management course – this one + 1 day workshop will give you real content, tools and information that WILL enable you to produce a better event, at the level you are working at now, or will be in the near future.  If you are ready to get going and learn content relevant to your event type, then this workshop is for you.

This workshop is also ideal for anyone that has done a course or degree, but is finding it hard to translate those fundamental learnings into what they are now working on.  I know this was me 10 years ago, but I’ve taken those fundamentals now and created this amazing content, relevant to real life.

Who is this workshop NOT for?

On that note, if you’re looking for an accredited or certified course, I highly recommend you look at the universities and TAFEs that have excellent options.  Learning style is an important consideration and there’s a lot of content to cover.  If you’re looking for a more social, slow or “light” version, you may like to consider other options.  That’s not to say we’re not friendly, we are!  But we’re also here to get the work done :).

Follow me on social media to see the kinds of things I talk about but if you want specifics, read on.

If you have ever wished that you knew what the professionals knew, then this workshop is for you!

I will teach you the fundamentals of event and conference management, and I will give you the templates to help you “operationalise” your event so you can start building on the design, rather than keep reinventing the wheel.

You will be able to take your past event experience and catapult it into the world of WOW! You will get supplier details, concepts and plans, but most of all you will get a sense of peace, a flow to your work and an outcome driven by purpose, not panic.

This workshop is for you if you would like to:

  • effectively plan and manage one or more events
  • reduce the stress associated with the planning of events and conferences
  • increase the value of your event or conference, for your attendees
  • increase your chances of selling out or getting a full house
  • build a contact list of trusted suppliers
  • join a network of event professionals that will support you with their skills and knowledge.

Planning events and conferences doesn’t have to be hard, time consuming or stressful. With the right tools, templates and knowledge, event and conference planning can be all that you hoped it would be! It is an amazing industry full of incredible experiences, and I would love to help you create one.

When do we run them?

We run the workshops once per month alternating through a Saturday or a Monday, giving everyone the chance to get to at least 1 throughout the year, if not 2.

You can view dates and book in by filling in the form below. 

Where do we run them?

Face to face is what we’re passionate about, but we understand that there are some people outside of our driving distance that need our help too. So we’re working on a delivery model that will incorporate online, but for now all workshops are face to face. If you would like to know when the online versions will be available, drop me a line via the “contact us” page 

How much does it cost?

The current pricing of $349 is valid for the 1 day workshop covering;

  • Designing your event
  • Working out the general considerations
  • Refining your audience
  • Planning your promotional strategy
  • and if you’re ready – launching your event!

If you want to jump straight into the operations after the design and implementation phase above, you book an additional day for $149 and in 2 days have your event designed, planned, implemented, launched and operational! 

But it’s okay if you’re not ready – you can do the operational day whenever it suits you for $349 when booked separately 

Fill in the form below to get more information and to book. 

Unlike other workshops that run for a few hours to half a day and spend most of that time sharing anecdotes and background, we are committed to increasing the capacity and capability of your skills, your network and your ability at delivering amazing events and conferences around the globe.

And here’s what some other past participants had to say;

I recently did Sally’s event training session. She know’s her stuff! I have already been able to implement the thinks I learnt into the daily operations of the business. Her experience and knowledge around events is exceptional and I highly recommend her if you run your own events.


 For and business owner who runs any types of events from getting a group of clients together for any occasion, putting on workshops, holding information sessions or even a boardroom meeting I strongly recommend you attend one of these workshops to add another notch of professionalism into your business and its growth. This is a day no business should not have included on their business plan for 2020


I’m new to business and new to the events arena. I had my first big event in May 2019. I thought I knew what to do, however after doing Sally’s day course she showed me a number of things I hadn’t even considered. Sally’s course was a life saver. I covered myself, the venue and the client and pulled off an amazing event. Would highly recommend working with Sally @redlanyard. You won’t regret it and you’ll have a winning event to race about.

 I loved the easy going delivery.  Your knowledge is out of this world!

The all day workshop, refreshments, templates and take home work book is $349.00. I will give you all the suppliers I can think of, that are relevant to your event, and event if you’re part way through your planning, you will get a clear vision moving forward. You also get access to a closed online group so you can continue to workshop your event with past and current participants.

The additional full day ticket includes a 6 hour workshop, and delves deeper into the operations and project planning of your event.  This workshop is perfect if you want to find out how much work is involved in what you need to do to have success with what you’re creating as well.
