How does one establish clear project objectives?

In order for project objectives to be clear and for all stake holders to understand and follow them, one needs to create SMART objectives. This means that objectives need to be:
Specific:
Measureable:
Achievable:
Relevant:
Time Bound: 
I would go on to talk about what each of those terms means. 
There is a very brief video that I would inbed at this stage that would reinforce this concept:

After the theory and video I would include an example of a project, relevant to the Events field where the SMART objective strategy is explained. I would so do is a cyclic diagram.
