previous preparation on the part of the organizer of the event. These events are costly and time consuming endeavors, therefore it is of paramount importance that the event meets or exceeds its desired objective of communicating the information presented to the selected target group. Globalization and technology has given us the opportunity to conduct seminars / workshops in a variety of ways, therefore, the resourceful organizer, whether in government or private enterprise, should be vigilant and receptive to embrace theses changes that occur in their working environment which can impact on their profitability, efficiency and effectiveness. This Paper will examine the guidelines for planning and conducting workshops and seminars within the public sector as today’s business environment places particular emphasis on ‘good practices’ that should be utilized by planners to achieve success. Traditionally, workshop and seminars were conceived as being different types of training devices, but in contemporary times, the two are seen as being synonymous and are used interchangeably to refer to the same thing. For the purpose of this Paper, the latter interpretation will be used.
