Please make sure that everyone in your company reads this. NO EXCUSES!!
This last saturday, 59 achievers were supposed to attend "Celebrate", a concert put together by one of our most enthusiastic supporters. I was informed that less than 15 students attended the event, giving Junior Achievement a very bad image with the organizers. Each ticket was $20, which means that the cost of our "no-shows" was more than $800. Not acceptable.
Due to this incident, I'm really worried about what could happen at the Alberta Business Hall of Fame. Each ticket at this event costs $300. Junior Achievement is giving you a seat that otherwise could be sold at that price. So, not only we are not selling those tickets, but we are covering the cost of the dinner to give you that opportunity. Each "no-show" at this event really impacts the budget for this year, and the amount of seats that we would be able to allocate for future years. You may think you are the only one that is not coming, but as it happened at the concert, your no show could mean a way bigger impact. 10% no show at this event means more than $5,500!!!!
