How to Book Jean

Let’s connect, discuss and start planning a wonderfully impactful event.

Step 1: Let’s connect on email. jean@networkingjean.ie and organise a Zoom call to connect virtually. You can also book a call with me directly via my Calendly link.

Let’s have a chat about your needs, ideas, the challenges currently faced and the desired outcomes.

Step 2: Based on the discussion, I will put a proposal together to mirror back my understanding the event objectives and share my ideas for the event.

Step 3: We’ll get the date in the diary, finalise venue and logistics as required, including technical details.

Step 4: I’ll share my media pack with you, so you have my bio, photos and anything else that you require for developing the promotional collateral. If required, I can also do a little minute long intro video that can be used for promotional purposes to help generate interest in the event.

Step 6: I will ask you to share any graphics and tag me on social media so I can comments, like and support the promotional efforts. Likewise if the graphics for the event are sent to me at jean@networkingjean.ie, I’ll reshare and support with my own posts that go out to my social media channels.

Step 7: If a PO is required for invoicing purposes, please send on your supplier set up forms to my email, so this can be managed promptly. If you have a file with all the invoicing details, email, named contact, please send this as quickly as possible for administrative purposes.

Step 8: I always like to have a quick call in advance of the day itself to see if anything has changed, to field any questions, understand registration numbers, demographics of attendees etc, so that I can ensure the content is tailored to the audience to maximise the impact.

Step 9: Feedback is always encouraged. Without feedback we can’t improve, so I’d love to hear your thoughts after the event. I will also connect to get a testimonial and recommendation as this helps me spread the word and connect further to more people about how valuable networking is!
