can interns really learn outside of the event itself?

By November 6, 2015 FAQ No Comments

I know a lot of interns get by just training on-the-fly while on-site at weddings.  In the rush and adrenaline of setting up the event, then running it and later breakdown, they try to pick things up as they go along…

But is there a better way?

(psst… the answer is YES.)

Because let’s face it…when you’re on-site at your client’s weddings, that’s the LAST place you have time to truly slow down and train your team.  We believe that a good mix of hands-on experience and online training during the week, mixed with learn-on-the-job on-site at the event is the way to go.  We transform your interns into SUPERHERO apprentices, giving them the prep they need to help you create magical weddings like this:

The basis of The Apprentice Program is pretty straight forward.

We train your interns on ALL the critical topics of wedding planning, so when it comes to taking them to shadow along at one of your client weddings, they have the knowledge they need to actively help and be an asset to your team.

We use a combination of weekly “spark” video sessions, homework missions, apprentice report cards and insider mentoring tips to help your interns train as quickly and efficiently as possible.

In just 6 weeks, we help you train them on:

  • event design
  • setting goals
  • creating a budget
  • assisting at weddings
  • planning timelines
  • sales and social media marketing strategies

Imagine for a second…a team of interns who are up to speed with EXACTLY how you plan and design events?  Ready to roll, ready to step up and help you, ready to be recruited as future employees?  Sounds good, right?

(so the answer is yes… interns CAN learn a lot outside of the event itself)

Does this training sound like something your firm could benefit from?
