How To Run A Successful Nutrition Event with Valerie Agyeman

For many in the nutrition business, running an event is a great way to connect with an audience and build credibility. There is a lot that goes into creating a successful event and not all of it is that obvious. As somebody who has run many events, my guest today has some great advice for anyone thinking of putting it on their own.   About Valerie Agyeman Valerie Agyeman is a Women’s Health Dietitian and Founder of Flourish Heights, a nutrition practice empowering women in health and wellness. She helps them understand the powerful relationship between what they eat and how their body looks, feels, and functions so they can make wiser, conscious choices, and establish a healthy relationship with food and their body. Through her platform, Valerie has organized workshops and events that have brought hundreds of women together locally and internationally to inspire change, educate, and build stronger, healthier communities.   Where to Start When Hosting an Event Whether in-person or virtual, live events are a great way to form connections. However, there are a lot of moving parts to arrange. Valerie explains how she coordinates between the many people involved to make it all come together.  Most of all, Valerie recommends just taking the plunge. If you want to run an event, try it out. You can start small with a short virtual event to test the waters and build your confidence. After that, you can build to something bigger as you see fit. The most important part is having the belief that you can make it happen.   The Many Benefits of Events We also discuss the many benefits of running events. First of all, they help connect you with your unique audience and make industry connections. They also establish you as an expert in your field and allow you to build a name for yourself. With events, you get to expand your reach and make a bigger impact on your community and beyond.  That is ultimately what inspires Valerie the most. The value she finds in helping a community is the best motivator of all. When your work is full of purpose, you’ll be inspired and empowered to continue doing more great things with your business.
