Training Workshops

The following 5 Training Workshops form the building blocks for all training efforts.

meeting

Workshop #1: ‘The Primary Event Organizer Process’ (PEO Process)
Target Audience: Student leaders and students identified as the PEO for an Event (e.g. Club Presidents/Executive members; Residence Councils and RA’s).
Workshop is designed to:

  • Raise awareness levels on risk, negligence, accountability, and the importance of event planning
  • Introduce student leaders and PEO’s to the 3-step risk management process
  • Introduce basic event planning skills.

Workshop #2: ‘Event Planning’
Target Audience: Same as Workshop #1 above – i.e. anyone directly involved in planning and running an event.

The objective of this Workshop is to provide event planners with the necessary planning skills and tools to organize and implement safe events.
The Workshop is structured into 3 sections:

  • Event Assessment & Approval
  • Event Planning
  • Event Planning Resources
  • Importance of Checklists
    ‘Pre-Event’ Planning checklists
    ‘Day-of-Event’ checklists
    ‘Post Event’ checklists

Workshop #3: ‘PEO Process plus Event Planning’
This combination workshop allows participants to view both workshops consecutively.

Workshop #4: ‘Events – Let’s Get Real’
In this workshop,  a much more hard-hitting approach is adopted.  This ‘blunt’ approach may be needed for student event organizers who still ‘don’t get it’, and need an extra jolt of reality!

Workshop #5: ‘Events Risk Profile’
This workshop provides hands-on training on how to determine just how risky an event is.  By assigning values to ‘probability’ and ‘severity’, it is possible to calculate a risk rating for an event.  Does the event have too high a risk rating, and if yes, what are the options: cancel – or modify to make the risk more manageable?

Working with McGregor & Associates allowed our staff to come together and learn how to communicate with each other about risk management issues… it was an outstanding team-building and/or learning environment for everyone. Our entire professional staff participated in the process and was divided into “working committees” to facilitate the collection of materials and develop common, department-wide, policies and risk management procedures.

As a result of working with McGregor & Associates, our Department has a well defined, and operational, Risk Management Manual, that incorporates its entire set of programs and services…. this is an active and fluid document that will continue to be updated and reviewed on a regular basis. In addition, as a result of this process, the department has established a department-wide Risk Management Committee that is responsible to monitor and manage the various risk-related issues associated with our programs and services. This committee will meet on a regular basis, communicate with the university’s Risk Management Services and will continue to oversee the management of our organization’s risk related needs.
