We mentioned earlier in this learning resources, the different types of events, how to get speakers, and how to set the tone of your events with venues/platforms.
Now, you want to organize an event and you definitely want to create the best experience for your community members.
Remember, every ambassador is required to have at least 2 events every month.
In this process, we’ll use your first “Kick Off event” as an example;
1. Define your “Why?
Every event has a purpose, you must be able to outline what this is and what you hope the outcome will be.
Kick Off Event is an intro event planned by the Ambassadors for the community. This event is open to everyone in my school.
2. What will your event entail?
What are the topics you’ll be talking about.
Who are your speakers?
What is the agenda of the event?
What platform/venue will be used?
The Kick Off Event will be held for 2 hours. We will discuss; I4G Circles, what they stand to gain in the community(Studygroup, Mentorship, Monthly Challenge, and a community driven by H.A.C.K), introduce them to the ambassadors of their school. We will hold a Q and A session and invite them to our Whatsapp group and to join the community by filling the form.
3. Create a timeline
This will totally help make or break your event. I call this the pre-event phase. Here, you delegate tasks to your team ambassadors as well as give them deadlines.
4. What is your budget?
If there’s a budget for this event, and in the case I4G HQ are not sponsoring, you want to actively look for partners and get them involved.
5. Have a great event!
Remember your Why. Focus on that. Make sure you don’t handle everything alone. Bring your team ambassadors along and connect with your community events
In a Month, you can divide your events into 2 Sessions:
