You will produce an individual, business case report justifying your approach to organising the resourcing and finances of a celebratory event. Using theory and models learnt throughout the module you will demonstrate your understanding of how to effectively plan and manage teams and finances.
You have been asked to consider how the company could deliver a launch party with the aim of attracting 100 guests. Your predicted attendance is 100 guests, which you will use to calculate the cost report and the cash flow report.
Furthermore, you will also be expected to identify how you will manage the staff on the night to ensure the event runs smoothly.
You will need to identify all potential costs involved under the headings of; entertainment, venue hire, decoration, food, staffing, stationary, transport.
As part of the financial element of the report you are asked to present the following reports:
A cost report identifying fixed and variable costs based on 100 attendees.
A cash flow forecast to identify how the cost and income pattern will be distributed over a 4-month period based on 100 attendees (using the data from the previous report).
Actual figures can be researched using a variety of sources such as the internet. Where actual figures are not provided estimations can be used. Credit will be given to reports reflecting the effort made in obtaining realistic information.
Regarding the staff management you will identify process and suggestions to ensure the staff are organised, motivated and rewarded to ensure a happy, knowledgeable team to deliver an efficient event.
You will need to summarise the report with a set of recommendations for the Management Committee to consider.
For each of the elements you must provide academic justification for your reasoning. These arguments should be fully referenced using academic books and journals.
See the associated guidance notes for further clarity on report format and content.

The University’s Extenuating Circumstances procedure is in place if there are genuine circumstances that may prevent a student submitting an assessment. If students are not `fit to study’, they can either request an extension to the submission deadline of 5 working days or they can request to submit the assessment at the next opportunity (Defer). In both instances students must submit an EC application with relevant evidence. If accepted by the EC Panel there will be no academic penalty for late submission or non-submission dependent on what is requested. Students are reminded that EC covers only short term issues (20 working days) and that if they experience longer term matters that impact on learning then they must contact the Student Hub for advice.
