Client Support Services

Special Events Consulting

Overview  

EA provides consultation, direct service and support in planning and managing successful high-level events.  Drawing on Associates’ extensive experience in this arena, we provide unique program and promotional ideas for enhancing interest, appeal and utility of clients’ events.  Clients also benefit from our high-level contacts, which can translate into obtaining high-profile speakers for their events.   


FEATURES

We offer consulting and hands-on service for planning, arranging and stage-managing professional, civic and social events.  Every detail is taken into account, from the planning stage through event closeout.  We also offer guidance in obtaining media attention to increase attendance and reader interest in the sponsoring entity.


BENEFITS

Associates’ experience runs the gamut from arranging effective meetings and awards dinners, to high-level (often nationally-televised) programs featuring respected leaders in the medical and rehabilitation fields, Nobel laureates, heads of state, media personalities, internationally-known stars of the sports and entertainment arenas, major civic leaders, noted authors, insurance and legal authorities and key political figures.  Clients benefit from our extensive experience, creativity, contacts and promotional abilities.


Internal/External Relationship Strengthening

Overview


EA offers consultation, direct service and support in improving both (1) internal relationships (relationships among and between staff, committees and boards) and (2) external relationships (relationships between the client and his/her current and potential clientele).  These relationships play a critical role in the success of a business, nonprofit, government or academic entity.  Friction between and among staff, committees, and boards can dramatically damage the bottom line, and the public’s trust.


FEATURES

Internal relationships: We work with clients to (1) identify relationship problem areas, (2) improve interpersonal relations, (3) decrease stress, (4) increase staff and board productivity, (5) establish an effective conflict resolution/alternate dispute resolution mechanism, and (6) in general, make the office—and the boardroom—more rewarding and more efficient workplaces. 

External relationships:  We work with clients to clarify and improve their public image while creating a strategic outreach plan to ensure that this new and improved image is transmitted to the client’s target audience; in some cases, this may include the general public.  


BENEFITS


Positive interpersonal relations translate into heightened productivity and greater cost-effectiveness, and EA brings a wealth of experience to this task.  Our many years of working in this area have yielded considerable knowledge and understanding of interpersonal dynamics.  We are eager to share this store of expertise with clients seeking assistance in improving interpersonal relationships among and between their staff, committees and boards.
