Online training for successful community festivals and events

Thank you for all your guidance, instruction, and feedback. I fully intend to complete the business plan with all its categories and details. It is teaching me a wealth of knowledge. It’s been many many years since I’ve had a workshop/class/course with this much detail, reading assignments, etc, and it has exceeded my expectations in more ways than one! ... Thank you for the experience and I look forward to continuing to learn more as I complete the business plan and put it into action during our [event].
