Budgeting and Negotiation
With the event planning underway, the group decided to focus more on the budget this week. We split into smaller teams to find out how much certain items would cost such as the venue. There were good discussions going on comparing deals with other shops and venues. One tip that Rodgers (RDN) and Taz (Heston West) suggested to us was to assume we have less money than we’ve been allocated. This helped us to focus on which items were essential and which items were desirable. Once we had decided what was needed, we called our venue choice to secure a booking. Despite it being difficult to negotiate on the price and the time, we managed to confirm a date for the event, much to the delight of the rest of the group.
