SITUATION:
During my internship last summer, I was responsible for managing various events.

TASK
: I noticed that attendance at these events had dropped by 30% over the past 3 years and wanted to do something to improve these numbers.

ACTIONS
: I designed a new promotional packet to go out to the local community businesses. I also included a rating sheet to collect feedback on our events and organized internal round table discussions to raise awareness of the issue with our employees.

RESULTS:
We utilized some of the wonderful ideas we received from the community, made our internal systems more efficient and visible and raised attendance by 18% the first year.
