LVL Answers: Will the workshop content help me if I'm not a CA or Luxury Planner?

We are getting SO excited for our upcoming workshop in November, and we wanted to take some time today to answer a recent question we received about it:

Q: I have been following LVL and LVL Academy and before I sign up...Will the content of the workshop apply to me? Will it really help me? I started my company two years ago and do weddings outside of California for all kinds of budgets. You are luxury planners, does what you teach apply to me?

A: First off, we LOVE this question and want to thank you so much for asking it. It gives us the perfect opportunity to explain what our workshop is all about, and how you can make the curriculum work for you—regardless of your location or the types of weddings you plan.

When we started planning weddings years ago, we felt as though there was such a void in the wedding-planning world when it came to accessible, approachable resources and education. In such a competitive industry, it was hard to find other planners who valued community over competition. We struggled with knowing where to turn, and with finding communities where we felt welcome to learn, grow and expand our wedding-planning knowledge. So, after many years of developing experience and connections, we created LVL Academy to give planners in all phases of their careers what Lindsay and I were looking for all along: support and community.

With that in mind, we've tailored our workshop content to be accessible and applicable for all types of planners in locations across the globe. We focus on covering issues that apply to all planners. Our workshop is, by no means, luxury-wedding specific or California-specific. Do you need to fine-tune your sales process to book more couples? Do you feel like you're unsure of how to bring a design vision to life? Do you need to streamline your vendor communication? Do you feel like your couples choose vendors you don't love? Do you spend hours on a single timeline? Are you looking for fresh design inspiration? If you answered yes to any one of those, our workshop is for you. 

Our curriculum spans so much more than the location our experience comes from. Our topics, speakers and in-depth discussions are for any and every type of planner. We've had attendees from everywhere from Hawaii to New York to Florida share with us that the workshop taught them so much more than they ever imagined they'd learn in such a short time period. And this is the exact feedback we live for—because it's the reason we founded LVL Academy in the first place: to create a welcoming, educational and inclusive community where planners of all types could come together to grow their skill set.
