This introductory Event Management short course is designed to help you organise and manage live events ranging from music, sports and charity events to exhibitions, conferences and corporate events.
Liam Devine has more than 20 years’ experience of live event management, organising everything from tours for the likes of Elton John and Oasis, to being part of the team responsible for Reading Festival in 2018. Tap into his wealth of knowledge and discover how to apply best practice events management techniques to your events.
If you’re new to event management you’ll get an excellent overview of the topic and learn the skills you need to organise and manage events of all sizes. Those already working in events can examine their practice and add to their portfolio of skills.
We use major events as examples on our event management training course, allowing you to learn about every aspect of event management and scale it up or down according to your needs.
At the end of this major event management course, you will plan and deliver a group event putting your learnings into practice.
As the course is taught online on weekday evenings you can easily fit your learning in around other commitments.
