Arranging an event sounds exciting and fairly straight forward – until you begin, and realise that you may have really caught a tiger by the tail, and wish you had a better understanding of Event Management.

The unfortunate reality is that without significant forethought and planning, what could have been a resounding success could well become an outright disaster!

As a marketing or office professional, your role has grown substantially, and you are expected to handle your daily duties, as well as plan, coordinate and run events without much training or experience.

This intensive 2-day Event Management for Secretaries and Office Professionals course will show you the A-to-Z of organising any event.
