What is the difference between event planner and event coordinator?

the planner makes critical decisions regarding what, when, who, and how.

An event coordinator, on the other hand, is responsible for making sure all the details are executed and that each vendor shows up on time and performs appropriately on the day of the event.

As soon as work is agreed to, a Contract will be signed to formalise the relationship by outlining the Scope of Work, deadlines, fee and payment plan. This Contract is for the protection of the interests of both parties concerned.

A 50% deposit will always be required prior to the commencement of any work. A Proof of Payment (PoP) must be provided and fees cleared in my banking account before any work will commence.

Minute Taking, Transcription and Typing have their own rates as indicated below.

A pre-meeting discussion will ascertain the detail and type of Minutes required.

General Minutes: The rate of R11.50 per audio minute applies to general Minutes.

Verbatim Minutes: R14.50 per audio minute (consider that an hour-long meeting takes at least another two hours to transcribe and type up, therefore the amount charged divided by 3 is more indicative of what you are actually paying per minute of work).

Actual attendance of meetings to take Minutes will incur additional costs for my time and per km travelled to and from the venue. In the event that there is a delay at the start of the meeting, the agreed upon rate will be applied to any further waiting time after a 15-minutes of waiting time. If the meeting is cancelled once I am already en route, a fee will be charged for my time and km travelled up to the point of cancellation.

During the pre-meeting discussion it will be ascertained what the likely duration of the meeting will be. A deposit of 50% will be calculated in accordance with the agreed upon rate. Such deposit is to be paid in advance of the meeting. The final duration of the meeting will be noted at the end of the meeting for billing purposes, and the deposit will be deducted.

A draft copy of the Minutes will be available in 5 working days from date of meeting. On payment of the remaining funds due in respect of the job, it will be electronically forwarded to the Convener or Chairperson for approval or changes. The final copy will be forwarded to the Chairperson two working days after the changes are received. Minutes can be expedited at an additional rate (on request).

Dissemination of Minutes to Attendees/Stakeholders, etc. can be undertaken at the rates outlined in the pricing structure.


Transcription of digital audio and video files will be undertaken at a rate of R10.00 per audio minute, for 1 Speaker and clear audio quality. The price will increase depending on the complexity and quality of the recording.

Rush jobs can be undertaken at R12.00 per audio minute (consider than industry norms accept that it takes about 3.5 times the audio time to effect transcription, so divide the rate you are being charged by 4.5 to get an idea of what you are actually paying per unit of work).

Turnaround time for 1 hour of audio is 60 hours (7 working days). A rush job will be done in 36 hours (5 working days).

A 50% deposit will always be required prior to the commencement of any work. A Proof of Payment (PoP) must be provided and fees cleared in my banking account before any work will commence.
