Anniversary Planning Video Library

Case Studies Presented by Milestone Masters

Please Note: The Anniversary Forum March 30, 2020 is being rescheduled as a virtual event, which many have requested. We are working on this now and will give ample notice regarding the date and other details. For those who already registered and those who will, we’ll be providing complimentary access to the Anniversary Planning Video Library to compensate for moving the live event to a virtual one.

The Anniversary Planning Video Library is an exceptional resource and the only one available.

The in-depth hour-long video presentations feature senior communications, marketing and brand executives who led complex year-long award-winning campaigns for some of the most notable organizations. The library will continue to grow. What you learn from the Milestone Masters will accelerate planning, optimize outcomes and save time, money, and stress for the entire anniversary planning team.

If you’re wondering how and when to begin planning, you’re not alone. For 90% of executives this is uncharted territory, and most are perplexed with how to begin.(read common questions)

No Need to Reinvent the Wheel!

Learning best practices, pitfalls to avoid, and viewing planning documents is an essential first step. The value of what you’ll learn cannot be overstated.

  • The planning framework is flexible and transferable to organizations of all sizes and industry sectors.
  • Corporations, higher-education institutions and leading non-profits have their unique culture, goals and aspirations for their anniversary; however, planning principles are similar.
  • Providing the opportunity for multiple leaders to access the video library will help tremendously with aligning leadership.
