About the martin school of event management
Events Management is closely related to marketing and advertising. It requires a multitude of skills to stage a successful function which not only fits an organisation’s objectives and business culture, but also delivers this within a budget.
An Events Planner deals with project management for every affair and they must be dynamic and creative as well as methodical and practical. Successful Events Managers develop strong business networks in order to provide memorable experiences.
An Events Manager, in one project, may need to co-ordinate venue choices, professional speakers, catering, themes and decor, technology, staging and lighting, audiovisual equipment, photography, media exposure, safety and security, graphics and multimedia materials, traffic and parking, entertainers and equipment hire – all within budget constraints!
An events course such as the Diploma of Events will give you the necessary qualification. However, to succeed requires a person who is creative, has organisational skills, enjoys meeting people to form good interpersonal relationships and is willing to work hard to experience the thrill of achievements. Rising to challenges such as meeting deadlines and working to budget, while still paying attention to the small details that go into organising events, is a daily occurrence.
