How to Professionally Host Events

Revealing the Interpersonal Skills of Impeccable Hosts to Guarantee Return on Investment from Events

Invitations to enjoy hospitality at events of all kinds, taking place every day, around the globe, are eagerly awaited and gratefully received. They form part of accepted sales and marketing practice.

Client entertainment is a costly exercise!

From drinks or intimate lunches/dinners, to structured days in corporate boxes at spectator events, banquets and formal dinners, conferences and seminars, tens of thousands can be spent on Hosting events, over the financial year, but what return are you getting?

Like any other area of expenditure, the ability to influence the outcomes from client entertainment events, and then to track and measure the return on investment (ROI), is vital.

Done well, significant financial returns can be derived from events.

But aren’t you often disappointed by how your executive team, the Hosts, performed?
