Event Training Companies, Colleges, Schools and Universities
Since I started training events managers (accidental – not the day job, professional and students) some 17 years ago I have worked with a wide range of organisations to deliver event training programmes. The objective in all cases has been to give the next generation of event planners the skills and confidence to run all types of events.
So how have I helped?
I have created 24 week courses right down to 90 minute bite sized sessions. I have also written 30 minute event training presentations. In all cases the subject area are some or all elements of the business of designing, planning and delivering successful events. The work I do for universities tends to be modular (set number of weeks) or workshop based. For event management training companies it tends to be subject specific. Subjects I have covered include event project planning, risk assessments, event promotion, event design, venue selection and evaluation. More specialist subjects include experiential events Event Social Media, Event Management Training, Sports and Arts events and festivals.
Over the years I have also delivered many of my one day courses such as ‘How to organise School and College Events’ to schools, colleges and universities. The difference is that many of these organisations are now business units and use events for marketing, recruitment and business development reasons. Their events need to have a tangible outcome.
To date I have trained over 3500 people. In many cases my sessions contribute directly to my students or delegates obtaining a professional event qualification such as a degree or diploma. I regularly hear from students of mine who have taken what they have learnt and are now part of event management teams or running their own events. I am pleased to say many of them are doing great things.
