Short Course in Event Management


Course Overview

The Event Management industry is probably one of the most exciting industries to work in. This industry is highly vibrant, energetic, innovative, organized and dynamic to work in. Event Managers are needed in almost any kind of business – entertainment, finance, government, retail, fashion, sport, music, art & culture, community, educational, political, leisure etc. Your day to day job may be filled with a range of exciting challenges. Event management is the co-ordination, running and planning of all the people, teams and features that come together to create any kind of event. Successful events depend on team members, flexibility and a commitment to good cross-team communication. If you love being part of a team and working with people to create something unique, events could well be the path for you. An event management team needs strong leadership to be at its best. Negotiations between clients, suppliers, companies or venue staff require flexibility, quick thinking, buckets of initiative and exceptional decision making. A particular ability to spot good compromises and to know what is essential to the success of the event marks out an excellent event team leader. Furthermore, South Africa has become a popular venue for staging international sporting events such as football, cricket, and rugby. The wedding industry alone is known to be a multi-billion rand market.
