International Events - Budget Theory & Strategy

About The Masterclass:

Budgeting successfully is a skill built and honed over years of doing.  This masterclass focuses on surviving that process while still being able to sleep at night.

To teach budgeting is to teach how to build a list of things and costs so that the person approving the budget understands it, and signs-off on it. Getting that sign-off is not as easy as it seems. It is rarely as simple as getting one person's approval. 

From your boss to your finance director, to the client and their procurement and finance departments, there is a sea of lava to traverse.  

Finally you need to deliver the job, make it amazing and still make the numbers work at the end.  

Join Dawn to learn about the process and pitfalls when budgeting for international events.
