Shirlene Leclair November 9, 2020 Checklist Template
Deciding on a planner is not a simple job. Instead of creating a checklist of what you would like to do, make a list of what you are reluctant to do and what you fear will happen. Once you have completed the assessments, your initial preparation time takes so much time that you simply do not have enough time to do anything beyond what you will need for the next day.
An ideal meeting planner checklist or event planning guide should comprise the goal and theme of the meeting; the agenda of the meeting; the venue of the meeting; an estimate of costs such as venue, refreshments, electricity, and decoration costs; the program of functions to be held and the cost of hiring a DJ and holding functions after taking auditions and getting quotations; initial cost quotations from different bidders on several items; list of sponsorships and the amounts for such sponsorships; the amount to be charged as admission fees; the tentative date of the meeting; the list of invitees and the list of VIPs to be invited; etc.
Once your list is created you need to start putting your tasks in the order that they are going to need to be done. For instance, you can not start worrying about prepping the food until you buy the groceries, and you ca not start buying groceries until the menu is written. Try to create some time order to your entire task list.
Depending on what your company does you may want to download more than one template for a checklist so that you can create a variety of lists for each task. You can print them on different colored paper to make sure they are easy to see and use a variety of fonts to make them catchy enough that your employees will actually enjoy using them and doing each job right the first time.
