Event description

Description

Ever wondered what an event manager actually does?
Interested in getting behind the scenes of a major event?
Would you like to meet events professionals on the job?

Our two-day Event Bootcamp intensive is designed for people with an interest in a career in events but who need a clearer idea of what it’s all about. The course is a low-cost, high-intensity backstage pass to the world of events. By the end of this short course you will have a real understanding of the event manager's role while gaining experience behind the scenes of a major event.



WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • An introduction into the world of events
  • Speaking the 'event language'
  • Event phases and planning systems
  • How the event team prepares for an event
  • Choosing event venues and undertaking site visits
  • What an event manager does before, during and after an event



WHAT YOU WILL DO

The course begins when you are enrolled in our online cloud campus for some preliminary online course work. The event team (you and your classmates) then meet at the event office where you’ll be immersed in the work of an event manager as the big day looms. Next, you go out on site with your team (rain or shine) and experience the live pulse of an event as the event team and attendees come together. Finally we wrap up on the cloud campus to complete the evaluation phase debrief and share our experiences.

TESTIMONIALS FROM RECENT BOOTCAMPERS

"The strength of Event Bootcamp lies in its simplistic concept; to give budding event managers an insight into what the profession is all about. With expert tutorial from industry professionals it was encouraging to know when they spoke they were talking from real life ‘in the field’ experience."

"Initially spending my weekend with a bunch of strangers was a rather daunting commitment to make. However, the structure of the bootcamp ensures they didn’t remain strangers for long, as we found out everyone’s backgrounds and what brought them to be in the same place, connections quickly developed."

"Working through the event management cycle and the five phases kept the lessons logical in nature and easy to follow. There was plenty of practical activities, collaboration and encouragement of ideas to get you thinking about all types and aspects of events."

"Overall, I found the whole Bootcamp experience was thoroughly enjoyable. The best part for me was when we left the classroom and were able to put the theory into practice in the various ways made available to us. This is what really brought the learnings home for me and allowed me a deeper understanding of the industry. I would highly recommend the CoEM Event Bootcamp to anyone interested in the events industry as a profession. It has cemented that this is the industry for me and I look forward to undertaking further study to make it a reality." Susan - Event Bootcamper 2018
