Businesses who can transform everyday business encounters into exceptional brand experiences will have a clear competitive edge as clients engage with them.

Do you need to coordinate, organise or manage your organisation’s events? Are you a member of an administration, marketing, or project team involved in planning and organising conferences or events?

Today, client and customer expectations of events are higher than ever, and whether you’re delivering roadshows, major events, conferences, awards nights, sales events, or showcases, the ability to produce seamless events is priceless.

This course will teach you think strategically about your event and be clear on the goals, objectives, calls-to-action, outcomes, data use, messaging, and experience before you set out.

You will also gain invaluable project management skills across the board that will remove the stress and last minute panics and deliver a seamless experience for customers and team members alike.

Practical activities in this two-day course teach participants how to administrate and schedule event arrangements, coordinate event proceedings, and finalise a post-event phase.

Event management is often viewed as a soft skill that can be learned on the job, however a high level of strategic thinking, project structuring, communication, customer service, and planning skills are needed to produce events that deliver a return on investment.

This course gives you precisely those skills and the tools and confidence to carry it off with assurance.
