The importance of building strong relationships with event suppliers
The importance of building strong relationships with event suppliers

When you've been in the industry for over 20 years, you learn again and again the importance of building and maintaining good relationships. This doesn't just apply to your clients but extends to your suppliers - especially if you plan to offer a reliable service or product that sets you apart from your competition. So, it's good to have numbers in your little black book that you know and trust to deliver - and make sure you're maintaining these relationships so that they always answer when you call. As event planners (and so, in many situations a 'middleman'), we know that you live and die on the service offering of suppliers, so at Worx Group, our approach has always been to build real partnerships with our trusted suppliers, and we've found that this benefits us in more ways than we can mention.

Social media for financial services: all the good and none of the bad
Social media for financial services: all the good and none of the bad

Social media is an excellent marketing tool, but in the wrong hands, it can also be severely damaging. Especially in the highly-regulated financial services industry. Fortunately, most financial planners worth their weight know better than to post pics of wild bachelor parties to Instagram or to weigh in with controversial political views on Facebook. But in financial services, it's not only the obvious errors that can land you in hot water.
