It's time to take your event from IDEA to LAUNCH. Take that content you have been sharing and create that transformational event for your clients. They deserve to have uninterrupted time with you, and you know that if you could just have their attention for a day or two, you could change their lives. This course, delivered personally with me, will show you everything you need to put it all together.
Create exponential change with your clients
You've been working in your field for years and you know the change your program can make in your client's lives. You have the course, you offer incredible support and your community is flourishing.
LET ME GUESS...
If only you could get their undivided attention for 2-3 days, or even just 1 day. You could quantum leap their change faster and more effectively than they ever imagined. You bring depth to their experience, a new level of knowledge, if only you could get them to remove all distractions, give you a day or a few, they will be in awe of what they can achieve.
And you've probably found yourself wanting to plan a retreat or an immersive. An event that will give them and you, the focus to expand:
- A beautiful venue that gives them a luxury experience.
- Nourishing food, relaxing spaces & time for mindfulness
- But you feel you need checklists and tools, and someone to support you?
- And a system that will ensure you have a sell-out event.
WHEN IT ALL FEELS TOO HARD
There's so much to do and decisions to make. There's so much to remember and you just don't have time to wade through all the books, and nothing really covers your event type.
... and so you look for other ways to connect deeply with clients.
You create that online community, you work hard to support people personally over DM, you do weekly coaching calls and 1-on-1 coaching.
AND YET, YOU KNOW THERE IS STILL SO MUCH MORE YOU COULD GIVE!
When it's time to take your program to the next level, that's when you need to take your clients on a journey to deepen their discovery.
A journey where they are immersed in your subject matter, immersed in their transformation, immersed in changing their lives.
- You knew in advance all the tasks that needed to be completed all the lists, all the processes, all the tools.
- You had your own personal event planner but still had control, space & freedom to create. (Without paying thousands to a freelancer).
- You could finally focus on the content and create a transformative audience experience.
- You didn't have to know how to plan, or market your event. wondering if you have remembered everything, getting caught up in the logistics.
What if all the lists were done for you - You had all the checklists, procedures, plans and templates you needed to plan the perfect event.

I did Sally's event training and she knows her stuff! I have already been able to implement the things I learned into the daily operations of the business. Her experience and knowledge around events is exceptional
I'm new to events but I thought I knew what to do, however, after doing Sally’s course she showed me a number of things I hadn’t even considered. Sally’s course was a lifesaver. I covered myself, the venue, and the client and pulled off an amazing event. I would highly recommend.
For any business owner who runs any type of events for any occasion, putting on workshops, holding information sessions or even a boardroom meeting, I recommend you do this course. This is a course no business should not have included in their professional development plan.

They talk about losing limiting beliefs, worry and concern about attendance numbers, and whether they have remembered it all.

IDEA to LAUNCH?
Me! I'm Sally Porteous
EVENT CREATOR, TRAINER and COACH, building exceptional audience experiences.
I've been planning events and conferences for more than 20 years - but for the first 10 years I didn't' know that's what I was doing. Until one day I had an experience to work with others and I saw how difficult some people found the process. So I decided to immerse myself in this field and spent the next 5 years studying business and creative industries, focusing on event management.
In my career, I have produced more than 200 events for more than 20,000 people, and I've worked on any kind of event you can imagine. The stories I share, the examples I use and the skills and knowledge I give to you, come from not only my experience, but a strong knowledge base as well. It really is like having your very own qualified event planner on your team.
"I WOULD NEVER HAVE PUT THESE EVENTS ON!"
Sally is amazing and I have so enjoyed working with her for the last 6 months. I would never have put on my events without her knowledge and support. If you are looking for help in the event planning area please contact Sally. She is so committed to your success.

Working with budgets and knowing what price to charge. Managing resources, volunteers, committees, and staff. Run sheets, schedules, project planning and timelines, and recording it all so you can grow your event, and keeping on-side with those whose help you need.

Sally took the time to really help me analyze the true goal of my event. She helped me find a title that my audience could connect with. She was so encouraging, supportive, and even helped me with my mindset.
EVENT COMPANY OWNER
We looked to Sally for help with complex decisions for the delivery of the festival that would impact the business model of our event, and ultimately the event’s bottom line. Having a mentor with experience in the music and event industry was also instrumental in our ability to take the festival to a national platform in our second year, as well as navigate the issues around sponsorships and partnerships, seeking both short and long term finance, managing events and teams remotely, and marketing on a national scale.
you are THE master of events
VA and woman of few words
