This course was very informative. The modules cover every aspect of event planning, some of which I was unaware.

I liked that it provided details on starting a business and all the "how-to". For me is a refresher course and I hope to have learned old ways and some new.

It is a great course that touches on the basics of event planning. It is good to create the foundation of what will be a much more complex service. Practice makes perfect though.
