Workshop Logistics:  It is More than the Room and a Microphone

Leaders win through logistics. Vision, sure. Strategy, yes. But when you go to war, you need to have both toilet paper and bullets at the right place at the right time. In other words, you must win through superior logistics.”

– Tom Peters

The Planning and Managing Workshop Logistics Checklist

The Managing Workshop  Logistics  Checklist is designed for business owners and entrepreneurs who know there is a lot more to creating a successful workshop than scheduling a room and providing a microphone. But they have no idea where to begin.

Workshop Logistics  handled effectively can increase your business event significantly.  Handled poorly – or worse, ignored – can negatively impact your business or event’s reputation.

Great workshops take significant planning and can provide a valuable marketing opportunity for you and your business.  With this checklist tool, a part of the “Create Custom Workshops” business series, you will learn key strategies and actionable steps to take to plan for, delegate or manage the logistics of your next live business workshop, seminar or course.


This tool is not for experienced workshop facilitators, professional speakers, or event planners who are looking for advanced training.  It is designed for the inexperienced, the person with an idea and who doesn’t have a team to handle the details.

  • If you are new to live workshop planning, this is for you.
  • If you have some experience, but struggled in your planning and need to streamline your process, this is for you.
