We are pleased to invite you to Mr. Organicy’s on-line course about how to organize socio-civic events, what you must know, what skills would be preferable to develop, what attitude should be demonstrated and expected for to be able to design, manage and access civic actions while involving school children , youths, seniors, families and disadvantaged people.

If you are organizing Socio-Civic events, like we do, I am sure you recognize the feeling that you are doing something amazing for the people around you, but you cannot quantify the impact or carefully measure the results. This is because the way we create events is broken. This is how important this tutorial is.

We have embarked in one of the most challenging tasks we have ever witnessed: changing the way we create events to offer better value for our attendees, partners, sponsors, community and for ourselves.

This tutorial is aiming high, against biases, traditions and over a hundred years of doing things the same way. More than a manual, it is a manifesto of how events should be made. More than a process it is a philosophy.

Change needs to happen at a deeper level, challenging the status quo, but it also has to encompass simple steps and actions that you can take to make an impact. We, Socio-Civic Events professionals, love innovation but are very practical people. We will not take you through self-pleasing exercises, we are giving you a plan to action today.

This is not a tutorial to read. This is a tutorial to devour, to pass to your colleagues and  partners. If you’ve ever felt frustrated with the way your company or organization does  events, this book will be a relief. It will soothe that feeling you always had in the back of your mind when planning your Socio-Civic event that most of the time ended up in frustration. This tutorial is also for the sceptical. It is for the seasoned event professional who has been tremendously successful in their career but is feeling the wind of change. For you, there is some good news and some bad news. The good news is that we got you
covered. We know how your organization works, we know how your stakeholders think, we know how you make decisions. The bad news is that you need to be ready to challenge  the way you do things.

Eventually this will be the most beautiful takeaway from this journey. What do you need to get started? Before you embark in this adventure, get ready to analyse your behaviour, challenge it and, if required, change it. Events are tools that through education, networking and entertainment change behaviours. If you want to change behaviours, you need to be ready to change yours. The results will be amazing. We promise. So amazing that you will brag about them to your friends and family. Yes, because planning events is
not about being obsessive compulsive with details. It is about hacking an experience until you get the best possible result. It is about making even the smallest element count toward a satisfied participant. So let’s not waste any more time, let’s go for it and create your own story on Socio-Civic events organized by you.
