“I learned event planners must understand the significant value of their self-worth.”

Joshua Rupp
Director of Events
4-Year CEP Alumni

While I am experienced in event planning, I had no formal training. The boot camp, as well as the two- day training session has taught me that I am not as organized as I previously thought! In addition, I have learned how to price for my services depending on the event type and budget as well as how to effectively manage and price preferred vendors.

Where do I begin and how can I possibly thank my mentor? Helena opened the doors for my professional success. She painted the outline of what it takes for one to have the most exciting and rewarding career as an event planner.

The course was very informative, taught me way more than I originally expected. I received constructive feedback and I was able to expand my area of expertise at the end of the 6-week boot camp! I highly recommend the program and that is all due to Helena and her knowledgeable personality.

Thank you Helena and Happy Planning!”

Hi, I’m Helena Paschal! Your event instructor and mentor! 

Nice to meet you!

Welcome and thank you for stopping by and showing interest in becoming a Certified Event Planner!

I created the CEP program because there was a lack of training for the brand new event planner interested in starting a career or business as a professional event planner. 

When I think of event planning, I’m not thinking about picking out a cake or decorating, I’m referring to planning events like a project manager. We are expected to create, manage, and execute seamless events from start to finish.  This means understanding contracts, consultations, fundraising, sponsorships, event revenue, budget development, negotiations, marketing, and building vendor relationships. You can expect to learn these things in this course.

I started my own journey of planning events in 2001. My journey has led to planning over 500 corporate events, publishing books, delivering classes throughout the nation, and now offering you the opportunity to take my classes in the comfort of your home.

Since I love planning events and teaching others how to plan events, you can count on me to be your biggest cheerleader! I will provide you with the necessary steps to plan detail-oriented events with excellence! Whether you’re planning a birthday party, a wedding, or a corporate conference, you will learn how to successfully plan your next event and build your event career!
