This exciting one day course offers trainees the opportunity to explore and develop key skills needed for running a successful event. Whether it’s a fundraising event, business networking, or you’re looking to expand on your qualifications and learn some new skills, our Manage Events course will teach you everything you need to know about planning, running and following up on events. Learners will consider the organisational aims of the event, and the flexibilities and constraints of their allocated budget. They will evaluate different project management techniques and analyse models of contingency and crisis management, before exploring methods available for attracting potential attendees.

By the end of the course learners will be able to demonstrate their understanding of how to assess an event for its impact on an organisation’s stakeholders, and how to consider resources required, location, technical facilities, how to lay out the event, and health and safety implications. They will learn how to develop an event plan, make formal agreements with suppliers, and how to process access, security and pricing. They will understand how to remain within budget, how to adhere to legal and ethical requirements, and finally how to measure the success of their event and follow up necessary post-event leads in order to fully optimise the potential for their organisation.
