Organise your party as a professional

Organise your party as a professional

Party planning is not so difficult, whether you are going to organize a private or a corporate party. You should only have some planning and implementation capabilities. To start, first you must understand the concept or theme of party you are going to organize. Preparation of the party should reflect its theme. So, its very important that you understand the nature of your theme.

There can be different party themes based on the occasion and requirements. Like party can be any private party, religious party, corporate or organizational level party. You can wide your ideas based on its theme like new year party, Christmas party, kitty party, get-together party, dance party, disco party, corporate party, private party, DJ Night, ramp show, fashion show, annual day function, any private or public seminar, anniversary party, holiday party, rain dance party, school/college functions and many other events.

To organize best you should keep in mind each and every aspect for the party. Like how many people are about to come in the party. Whether the party is in day time or it’s a night event. Decision about venue should be as per function time and based on number of persons to come in the party. Hall for the party should be specious for all the coming visitors and most important is entrance should have a good space and should be decorated beautifully with nice flowers and other decorations.

After venue and decorations next comes food for the party. Menu should be decided based on the choice of visitors or quests. Like mostly what do they like. Items can be a mix of Thai food, Chinese food, Indian food and some other. A little refreshment is also required with some cold drinks etc.

If your party or event is on some big level or you don’t have enough time for all the arrangements, you can also hire any party planner. A party planner provides you best services and suggestions based the theme of your party. He can give you different choices for venue and foods. And then you can choose the services from them based on your requirement and budget.



Outsourcing is giving work to another person or company who will do the work you require for a fee.

There are many reasons why outsourcing is a good idea. Firstly, it provides you with a skilled person to do a job better than you can yourself. It costs less money because you do not have to spend time and money gaining these skills for yourself. You can often find a free lance skilled person in a country where wages are lower. The fact that the person is free lance also saves you money. You pay an agreed price for their services and you don’t have to pay their tax or national insurance and of course, other benefits that you would have to give to an employee like sickness or holiday pay.

Equally, there is a down side. Sometimes language or cultural difference can be a problem. If you employ a free lance for one job and then another for another job you may have to act as go between yourself. There are sometimes problems if your free lancer loses internet connection and can’t work. The technical infrastructure in some countries is not up to the standards we are used to. The time zones can cause problems if you don’t want to get up early to speak to your free lancer.

All in all, the good reasons outdo the bad. The skills base for website building in India is second to none. In general the work ethic is very high, most free lancers take an enormous pride in their work and will stick at it until it’s all complete.

Of course, India is not the only country which outsources. There are many free lance companies and individuals who provide an excellent service. It may be that you prefer to employ someone who shares your native tongue and live in the same time zone. There are companies that are based, for instance, in the UK, that have a team that is spread all over the world. However, your point of contact will be in the UK and English speaking.

The choices available to you are endless, but the bottom line is, you can pay a fraction of how much it cost you to employ a person permanently and you can get a specialist that you might not otherwise be able to afford.

Managing customer opinions in your business

Managing Customer Opinions in Your Business

We humans are curious creatures, with a variety of opinions, which make up our personalities, our buying habits, and how we live our lives.   These opinions are a result of years of learning and observing.  We get our opinions from the media, friends, family and many other sources.  In turn we use what we learn from these sources to make decisions about life and more importantly what we buy.

Customer opinions are invaluable to institutions and businesses alike.  They allow those in charge to make the appropriate decisions in product development and management.   Strategic planning and forecasting are all benefits of harvesting the opinions of your consumers and clients.

There has been a lot of negative economic new lately.  The housing slump, mortgage issues, gas prices, and a weak dollar have all added to the financial woes of this country.  A large majority of the economic pundits are forecasting a recession, or at least an economic downturn in the foreseeable future.  It looks dark and gloomy, but what you may not know is that consumer don’t necessarily share in this pessimism.

Consumers and businesses alike are watching the economy with a strained eye.  Knowing that what happens over the coming weeks and months could have a huge impact on the American lifestyle.

All this is what makes a recent USA Today/Ballup poll so interesting.  When measuring the publics opinion on the economic situation, Gallup found that only 4 out of 10 Americans felt that an economic recession is likely within the next 12 months.  This is a relatively small number of less pessimists consumers when compared to the numbers gallup received during a similar poll in the  1990’s.  

American attitudes are actually quite robust when compared to past economic hard times.  After the dot-com bubble burst in 2000, roughly 45% of Americans thought there would be a recession during the next year.  Only a couple months later, it inched up to 53%, and then declined shortly after to 49%, in march of 2001.  Even a stronger showing of economic disbelievers existed in 1990.  When during that economic slowdown, somewhere between 65% and 78% or Americans said that the economy was headed toward a recession.  And as it turned out there was a recession from mid-1990 to early 1991.

When respondents were asked if they thought the economy was currently in a recession, 36% of those respondents said that it was, while 58% said that it was not.  Once again the numbers  paint a far different picture than what you would expect.

A person gets the feeling when watching the news or reading the paper that the current economic forecast does not look favorable.  Fortunately, American opinion shows a more optimistic outlook.  However, you would never know that Americans had a far sunny view than the pundits if no one took the time to ask Americans what their opinions were.  What matters most about this optimism is that it reflects on the future of holiday spending.  Investors are worried, and watch with sweaty palms, the spending habits of consumers.   They should take some comfort in the fact that consumers aren’t as nervous as perhaps they are.

Knowledge really is power, no matter how tired that cliche is, it still rings true.  Those who can see into the minds their consumers, can make the decisions necessary to navigate the complicated world of business.  

One way of obtaining the opinion  of your customers is through online surveys, telephone surveys and email surveys.  These surveys can be a non intrusive way of gathering information that can make your company get through when times are hard, and flourish when they are good.   

Getting into the heads of those people who mean the most to your business can be a lot easier than you think.  You’d be surprised what you could learn and how you could use that knowledge to grow and improve.  Knowing the opinions of your customers is key in todays financial environment.

Reasons to get out of the office on break

Reasons to Get out of the Office on Break

It’s easy to just hang out in the office during your lunch break and not go out and get some fresh air but there are numerous advantages and reasons to getting off your butt and walking around during your lunch break. Here is a list of a few of the best reasons for you to get out of the office during your lunch break.

Stretch muscles

An obvious one, sitting at your desk for 8 hours can’t be good for your physical or mental health so stretch your muscles and take a little walk around outside your office. If you work in a busy downtown sector, you have lots of sights to see, which makes your muscle stretching break all the more enjoyable.

See the sights

If you are lucky enough to work in an interesting area or downtown there is plenty to see outside your office building. Sure, the internet has its charms, but staring at a screen longer than you have to is not good for your mind, body or soul. Right now around the holidays there is plenty to see and hear outside the office, from Christmas music being played on the piano in the lobby, to guest orchestra bands playing for free in the foyer around the corner to the fish tanks in the lobby, there is always something interesting going on that can take your mind off work for a moment.

Check out chicks

If you’re a guy, another reason to get out of the office is to check out all the beautiful specimens of feminity walking around the skyway or going downtown for a power lunch. There is nothing wrong with admiring female beauty as long as you do it with the right mindframe and don’t be a staring creep about it.
