Events R Talented

Best Use of Small Budget - Events R Talented - Executive Summary

During our the inaugural year of Events R Talented we raised £6000 for charity and discovered a fantastic singer from within the events industry
Building on this success we set ourselves a new target of raising £8000

We decided that for 2019/2020 we would support a UK charity.

We decided to extend our audience reach and hold auditions in the North and South

We needed to bring in fresh and innovative ideas to keep the concept fresh and exciting

Budget

We agreed to limit our budget at £1000.00

Challenges

Challenges to overcome included sourcing a responsible charitable organisation, sourcing venues, introducing new fund-raising initiatives, holding a second audition in the North and achieving targets within budget

We met all our challenges

We publicly launched our programme on 24th July 2019 at a launch party for 80 guests at the Sandals Resort Centre in Fulham.. We announced our 2019 charity was to be Buses 4 Homeless

We launched our audition programme, fund-raising initiatives and held our first 2019 auction

We continued publicising the concept via a social media, PR and personal network campaign
