    Diploma of Event Management

    I knew that Martin would prepare me for a career in Events. Work experience was a great help in understanding how things are run and probably the most rewarding part of the course. I currently work as an Event and Marketing Coordinator at the Sherrin Group. My role involves coordinating corporate social events, internal events and my biggest task is the annual Sherrin Riverfire Charity Gala Dinner. I am also in the process of starting to run my own events on the side.

    Diploma of Event Management

    I wanted to get the right skills and qualifications to start my career in event management, and I knew a Martin Diploma could get me there. The event subjects were great in giving me the skills I need to organise different types of events, including conference programs. I am working at the Australian Council for Private Education and Training (ACPET) organising their events. My plan for the future is to always aim high and achieve the best I can. I plan to one day work for myself and build a strong reputation within the events industry.
