Time was tight
CHIK Services required a solution that managed their entire event operation process – from managing speakers, sponsors, budgets, tasks, sessions, event marketing and communications, agenda management – right down to name badge printing on the day.
As a non-profit organisation resources and time are tight, so researching the marketplace for a product that could do all of the above wasn’t feasible. For that reason, CHIK Services engaged Best Case Scenario (BCS) to review their event management process for their flagship industry.
Best Case Scenario started out conducting an internal assessment of CHIK Services marketing processes and tools.
“The first objective was to check whether CHIK’s existing processes and tools could be improved and reused. We try to avoid our clients having to reinvent the wheel or reinvest in new tools unless absolutely necessary
Once satisfied that existing resources could not be recycled, BCS used their customer need to market solution assessment tool. Basically this involves matching clients’ needs with a solution that would come to close to delivering their ‘best case solution” , explains Luli Adeyemo, Director, BCS.
Once the correct processes and procedures were in place, BCS ensured all of CHIK’s data was imported and segmented where possible to create an effective and targeted marketing strategy and communications plan that would create awareness, attract sponsors and delegates and secure high profile speakers, setting this event apart from its contemporaries.
