New. Unique. Outside of the Box. These are all words we hear in the event industry. It’s a goal or initial vision clients have for what they want from their event(s). But then something happens (or doesn’t). The planning process starts and though you start off with the intention to be different and shake things up – the days, weeks, months get away from you, the work load piles up and the ability and time to be innovative and try something new disappears. You have been working “in” your event instead of working “on” your event. A common mistake we all make!
While lack of time, expertise and tradition can hinder the growth and success of an annual event we have found success with clients who are willing to step back and participate in an event audit with us, helping you move away from working “in” your event to working “on” your event.
An Event Audit? Sounds time consuming and expensive… but it is essentially having a third-party look at what you are doing, who you are doing it with, how you are doing it and why. Looking at your major pain points and developing solutions for new opportunities.
With the desire to evaluate your event, you open yourself up to a third-party's reflection and expertise on what is working well, areas to improve upon and how you can make some small (or large) changes to enhance, refresh and ultimately raise more funds through your annual event. Our findings and customized recommendations can be the push your need to make the changes needed to breathe new life back into your event, help you be competitive in the world of fundraising events or even save the event all together.
If you think it is time (and it probably is) to evaluate your successes and opportunities for improvement we’d love to chat with you and see if an event audit makes sense for your organization!

We look forward to hearing from you!
“It was a great pleasure to work with Our Forté on our annual gala event to get a new perspective on an event we have done for many years. They brought professionalism and passion to their work. They asked the right questions, gave important and relevant advice and suggestions. Their understanding of the VAW sector, their expertise in event planning and fundraising was a PERFECT match for us. I would highly recommend Our Forté to any group wanting a refresh in an existing event or anyone looking to have an event developed, organized and executed with precision and flare!”
