Events Management

Learn how to manage your events at work and/or at home. Do you have a flair for organising? Do you find yourself running all your family functions, community/school events or special events in your workplace? Would you like to improve the impact and delivery of your events? Or, are you already working in an area where you believe you have the skills required to run events and take on more responsibility but are not sure where to start? In Event Management Essentials, we will focus on the creative development of a variety of events, looking at where you source the resources needed to make your events stand out. You will also develop documentation to help you manage the process. Essentially practical, the course is filled with interesting activities and exercises to enhance your present skills regardless of your previous experience and expertise. Simone Parrott was the executive producer for Tina Arena in Concert and Jose Carreras in Concert and Michael Parkinson events.
