If you make it...

They will come! The ultimate project based work, a sneak behind the scenes reveals just how high pressure this industry is. We help our event clients keep on top of costings and reporting to reduce the pressure.

Event and staffing agencies

Only one try - each time

Everyone loves a good event but most of us don’t realise how much work goes in behind the scenes to make it happen. 

A common issue involves managing staff, as the events industry has a mix of employees and freelancers, and dealing with their expenses and payments can be complicated. Don’t worry we can help take the pain out of that.

Another major issue can be controlling the costs and keeping to the original budget. Many businesses run from job to job and never fully reconcile or review the jobs, let alone monitor them whilst they’re live. We help our clients with job costing and real-time reporting so that additional costs can be flagged up in time to adjust and communicate with their clients.

All about the downtime

When the events are live and all your focus is on delivering the best experience you can, you can trust us to keep the accounts ticking over in the background.

The main value however is in looking at the downtime you have.

Common issues we help events businesses with are:

  • Managing cash when there are no events.
  • Using downtime to work on business strategy, goals, and development.
  • Improving the costing and budgeting system to maximise the return on the next jobs.
