Following on from the successful first workshops in November, Derek Pengelly has announced more dates and locations for early 2011. Due to other commitments in 2011 it is unlikely that any other workshops will be added. Derek also suggests that it is beneficial to travel to a workshop outside of your locality in order to gain an insight into how the DJ marketplace operates in other parts of the country.
The workshops are all held in quality hotels which provide an ideal environment for attendees to relax and participate in these interactive group presentations. The day is split into segments with ample opportunity for less formal networking and idea sharing during tea breaks and a working lunch.
Many active and successful DJs have attended the workshops held so far in Chester, Newport and Birmingham. Feedback has been very positive and all of those who have attended, without exception, have commented about how useful and informative they found the content.
Here are just some of the comments recorded at the end of the first run of workshops:
"Good day, well done Derek"
"Thanks for an informative day"
"Loved the performance stuff"
"Very Informative, I've learnt a lot"
"Great day, lots of interaction"
"Friendly, Relaxed & Approachable"
"A very worthwhile day"
"Money well spent"
If you are serious about developing your DJ business within the wedding sector and you would like to take your marketing and performance to a higher level then these workshops could be for you. A minimum of six and a maximum of twelve delegates will be booked onto each workshop to ensure that attendees benefit from personal advice and coaching during the day. Assistance will also be available after the day of the workshop via e-mail and telephone. Those who attend will also be given a certificate to display and a referral to a national agency which specialises in wedding entertainment.
