If you know me at all, you may be aware of these two things about me:
1. I like to organize, especially other people.
2. I like to plan and organize events.
Okay, so maybe you've known me for years and never knew that, but now you do. Anyway, I am in the process of planning my boss's inauguration, and decided I needed some more event planning resources in my library of books. So I picked up "The Complete Guide to Successful Event Planning" by Shannon Kilkenny with companion CD Rom.
This morning I popped in the CD ROM.
This is an amazing resource...the organizer in me is giddy with excitement! Checklists, Budgets, Event Task Status Reports, Room Set Ups, Speaker Arrangements...it's a plethora of reusable resources right at my finger tips!! Granted, many of these things I have used in the past with events, but oh...to have them easily accessible again...in pdf OR Word format so I can tweak them to my liking...this is almost more exciting than reading the book itself!
Timelines. Room Designs. Food and Beverage Servings.
I feel like I've just overdosed on sugar at Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory or something...bliss...
