Successful Invitations training

In our Successful Invitations training you will learn how to reach all the participants you want in your events. Usually the problem is not that the event is boring, but rather that the invitation process has not worked. You will learn to implement the invitation process in a way that the participants are engaged and motivated already before coming to the event and you will receive tools to activate those people who do not normally participate.

The success of events is significantly affected by getting the right people and groups to participate and how you direct them beforehand to participate actively in the event.

For whom?

This training is for people who organise events or participate in planning, organising or communicating about them.

Participants should have an event coming up for which we can help plan and implement the invitation process during the training.


  • You can organise an event around an uninspiring or challenging topic yet still find participants
  • You will understand what a successful invitation process requires
  • You will learn how to implement a successful invitation process
  • You will find the participants you wish
