It is extremely beneficial to gather feedback after a Women’s Ministry event.
While I highly recommend having your team complete a Post Event Evaluation Form after each event, having your attendees complete a survey also provide a valuable perspective.
Distributing and collecting surveys at an event creates a couple of issues:
- Instead of listening to the speaker, women are filling out their surveys.
- The event hasn’t actually ended before the surveys need to be submitted.
This past spring we decided to try something a little different.
We sent out a link to a SurveyMonkey survey after the event (if you collect emails at registration, this can be super easy to implement).
We asked the women to rate these seven things:
7. Overall Event
They were to rate each as:
- Did not meet expectations
- Met expectations
- Exceeded expectations
We also included a space for comments for after each category rating.
We let them know in our post event email that they’d only need about 5 minutes to complete the survey.
We received comments for every category – most of which were very encouraging and a blessing to share with the team.
The seven survey questions we used are applicable for almost any event.
Please feel free to use it “as is” or tweak as needed.
