Great feedback from the latest course

“I put my Senior Ops Exec forward for the course as part of her progression plan to become an Ops Manager. As much as I’d like to think I can teach her everything she needs to know, you can’t deny the value of being taught by the best in the industry! ”

“It was great to see the team’s passion and enthusiasm during and following attendance. I genuinely believe anyone in the industry - be it organiser, venue or contractor - would reap the rewards by attending and gain a true understanding of the day-to-day challenges presented within the events industry. ”
