Connect Sydney: Event Management Training - Expression of Interest

Connect Sydney is an initiative by the City of Sydney which aims to build the capacity of community organisations through the provision of free skills and governance training. It also aims to provide an opportunity for a wide variety of organisations to network and share their experiences.

If you’re planning to run a community event and want to improve your knowledge and skills in event management, this is the training for you.

Planning and co-ordinating a community event is a wonderfully rewarding experience when you have survived it! Event management can be very stressful. Often community workers find themselves in the role of co-ordinating a major event such as a youth event, a concert or information expo without having received much guidance or direction.

This course provides you with a structure to plan and co-ordinate any significant event from the beginning to the end. A general framework will be presented that you can adapt to your event.

Issues including insurance, first aid, publicity, managing your budget, OH&S and safe work method statements, City of Sydney event approval processes, co-ordinating volunteers and catering will be addressed.

Bring an idea for a possible event with you and you will go home with a draft plan. Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • List and explain the tasks required to effectively produce and event
  • Develop an action list that will help you to monitor your event management
  • Learn how to market an event
  • Identify the final preparations of an event

Training sessions are limited to 20 participants, so make sure you register your expression of interest early. Places are limited to 2 people per organisation, and priority is goven to community organisations that operate within the City of Sydney's local area.

This training will be held in an accessible building. The City aims to deliver inclusive and accessible training sessions so everyone can participate. If you have any access or communication questions or needs, please contact Nelson Tilbrook, Policy & Program Development Officer at the City of Sydney on 9265 9333 to discuss further.
