Dear Planning Peers,

Candy Event Consulting through its learning arm, Candy Academy, has always looked for ways to make complex concepts easy to understand and implement. You might be planning your own events but, thanks to Candy, you don’t have to plan them alone. In this interactive weekend you’ll learn not only the strategy to build a great event but you’ll learn how to implement the strategy over and over again no matter what events you are looking to plan and promote!

Join us to gain clarity in your planning process, get connected to local peers and partners, and grow in confidence … launching your planning to the next level!
