Event Management Training Courses

We’ll train you to run your own successful events

To the unknowing planning an event may seem quite straightforward. The reality as you know can often feel quite different. The good news is with practice and a little help you can learn to deliver your own successful events.

The vast majority of event planners lack experience or formal qualifications and yet are expected to deliver an outstanding events in the most public of environments. Many of us are what I call accidental event planners: it's not the day job. Events may appear in your job description but not in your job title. Sounds familiar, is this you? Well help is at hand. Unique to The Event Expert is an in-house suite of short event management training courses which, to date, has transformed the event management skills and confidence of over 2,500 people - just like you. Courses are delivered exclusively for you and your organisation at a date and location (usually your offices) that best suits you.

While we may be slightly biased, there can be few things more rewarding than knowing that you delivered something from concept to completion. And everything in between. While event management may not be for everyone, if you are kind of person that likes a challenge, is willing to learn and has a 'can do' attitude you'll love events.  

Why not take a couple of minutes to watch The Event Expert introductory video , which explains how our event training courses can help you.

“Great - covered all of the crucial points, broad enough taste of all elements in events management, Chris was superb - very clear, very useful, kept your attention 100%.”
