What people are saying...

“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!”

Catherine Beck

“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. ”

Head of Event Management, ExCeL London

Jamie Harvie

“Rachael had been part of the team for just shy of 3 months before attending the Ops Foundation and completely new to Events and Exhibitions. Her confidence and knowledge since completing the course has increased 10-fold and I would encourage all of you to get on board and invest in your teams”
