Part B:

 In Part A you designed a major event, in Part B you are tasked with writing a persuasive and compelling argument to the local council as to why they should approve or support your event and detailing what that support would look like.

You need to succinctly address in your report the following:

  • Where there is alignment between your event and the local council’s strategic objectives
  • The positive impacts your event will have on the local community and how this will be measured
  • Use an Ishikawa Diagramto identify any negatives and include how you will mitigate any potential negative impacts of the event
  • What type of event support you are seeking and why

Your response should be detailed and provide specific examples of how your event is aligned with the local council / governing body’s strategic objectives for their community. Where you give examples of positive impacts draw upon related events to show the extent of these, likewise provide supporting evidence that risks can be mitigated.
