EXECUTIVE CERTIFICATE IN EVENT MANAGEMENT COURSES (BUSINESS AND PUBLIC EVENTS)
The number and type of events conducted in Australia has grown exponentially over the past decade. This growth has resulted from governments seeking to leverage events for economic purposes, along with an expanded recognition of the role events play in areas such as marketing communications, information sharing, organisational learning and community development. As the number of events have grown, so too has the need for trained professionals capable of planning and delivering events of various types including conferences, product launches, exhibitions, sporting events, parades and networking and social events. This program contributes to meeting this need by providing a grounding in the key skills and knowledge required to successfully project manage the full spectrum of business and public events.
This four-day online course (delivered in two parts over sequential weeks) is based on the texts (Event Management and Festival and Special Event Management) written by its presenters which are used in colleges and universities internationally, as well as by event professionals. The program is specifically designed to both enhance the skill and knowledge base of those already employed to plan and deliver events (live, hybrid and online) and to serve as a sound platform for those individuals seeking to launch careers in the exciting and varied field of event management
Attended to date by over 4000 people in 10 countries, its participants have included in-house event organisers from some of the world’s largest corporations, as well as staff from business and public event production companies, government agencies/departments, tourism bodies, NGOs and charities.
