Event management is a fast-paced, high-pressure, yet very exciting and satisfying career path to follow. Depending on your interests you can organise events such as weddings, corporate functions, fashion shows, concerts, political and sporting events, and even charity events.
People who tend to move towards a career in event management often say that planning is in their blood – they just can’t help taking control and planning events that amaze people, even if it is just a birthday party!
Does this sound like you? Here are some more reasons why YOU should study Event Management…
The job opportunities are endless
The events industry in South Africa is booming – from major international events such as the HSBC Cape Town Rugby 7’s, and the Sunshine Golf Tour, to music events such as Ultra Music Festival Cape Town, to an ever-growing number of festivals for foodies, culture vultures, whiskey and gin enthusiasts and everyone in between. All these events need talented people to drive them! People who are energetic, quick learners and thinkers and passionate about all things events!
Increase your confidence
Prestige Academy’s Event Management courses will help you improve interpersonal skills so that you feel more confident in dealing with people in the working environment. We do this by involving you in hands-on activities such as organising events such as our staff team buildings, the Annual Spring Ball, Charity Golf Day, to only name a few. Event Managers need to deal with clients, suppliers, and other people in companies daily, so you need to learn how to be confident and self-assured.
Become a great team player
It is all about the team when it comes to event management! In our collaborative learning environment, you will learn to work as a team, how to get the best of your team and discover what your role is in the team. Event managers are not afraid to get pulled in – although they love planning, they are at their happiest when they are getting their hands dirty doing practical stuff.
Learn to deliver exceptional customer service
For any event to be a success, you will need to understand your client’s needs and you will need to deliver a service that surpasses their expectations. Prestige Academy’s event management course will show you how to achieve this. It will teach you how to be professional yet likable and approachable. You will value the importance of taking care of every detail in every task you undertake.
You can exploit your creativity
Are you a creative thinker? Do you have an eye of a designer and an appreciation for high quality? Are you innovative? Event Management gives you the chance to make a real impact by tapping into your creative side. You will be the person that brings the ideas to life!
If you love a challenge
One of the most important aspects of an event planner is you need to be able to solve a problem, and quick. Employees need people who can help them solve problems and make decisions that will create wealth for their business. If you are a hands-on person who likes to deal with practical problems that have to be overcome to get that event running like a well-oiled machine, then an event management course might just be for you! You will learn how to keep a cool head under pressure which will help you to come up with solutions on your feet.
You are a people’s person!
You love to talk, discuss, debate, negotiate, but most of all you feel your contribution is helping. If you enjoy interacting with people and you enjoy the experience of constantly dealing with clients, you will get the most out of our event management course.
Do you want to be self-employed?
An event management business can be run from the comfort of your own home. Studying the event management course at Prestige Academy can help you achieve the knowledge and skills you will need to manage your own business.
Stop dreaming and start believing in yourself – only YOU can make this happen!
