Why use the Event Design Template?

Design events that work visually with clients and stakeholders. Get a better understanding of time how your program fits in a schedule. A great tool for planning, program design and turning objectives into effective events.

  1. Choose your time format – Plan events that cover multiple days, weeks or months, or fill in hours to plan a one-day event.
  2. Objectives – What are your goals & objectives. What do you wish to accomplish? Design the experiences, changes or eye-openers of your participants. Other methods like the golden circles, empathy mapping and value proposition design work well before, or during this step.
  3. Overall program – What’s the overall program? Design the program like a journey that guides participants along experiences that lead to discovering different objectives. Who’s responsible for each part of the program?
  4. Detailed program, content & details – Mindmap ideas, activities, videos, workshops, subjects and other ideas. Structure and (re)design your objectives and program with these puzzle pieces.

This tool is designed to help you with following challenges.
TIP: to help you ‘think’, select the challenges that apply to your case.

  • Create events and schedules that don’t run out
  • Get a feeling of the experience and how long things take
