What You Will Learn
This is a very involved course, covering a lot of information on how to be successful in this career path. This is a brief run down of the course:
Introduction to Event Management
The course starts with an introduction and fact-finding mission that will give you all the answers to your questions about Event Management, including what it involves, what the market is like, and why the role exists.
Whether a concert for hundreds or a tea party for ten, the success of an event is down to planning and implementation. This is the multi-varied role of an Event Manager; being the person responsible for everything surrounding an event: from creating a theme, marketing, organising car parking, setting dates, acquiring necessary permits, running the event itself, organising clean up after the event, and so much more… and of course having fallback plans for every eventuality.
Going in deeper into the role itself, the course moves on to tell you the kind of skills you will need and the sorts of challenges you will face and how to overcome them. It also informs students of additional courses that would be beneficial to study, to improve upon the various skills needed to be an Events Manager, as well as talking through how important budgeting is to the role.
The events that can require an Events Manager are far-ranging and although many ideas can be carried across various events, each involve different processes and approaches. This section of the course talks through different event types, how each are important, and what would be required in each case. Events discussed include everything from corporate and charity events, to parties, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, and even funerals, along with many more.
As with most businesses, technology now plays a big part in Event Management. This part of the course talks through the importance of staying abreast of updates in technology, as well as how software, apps, online services, and having a website can improve your business and make your life easier.
Marketing Your Company
Good marketing is important to the survival of any company, so the Event Management Diploma Course dedicates a chapter to this very topic, giving you the tools you need and the know-how to effectively market your business through a variety of channels.
This part of the course teaches you how to run the business. This includes how to go about hiring and developing an effective team and how to use different management styles to motivate and develop your team towards well-set targets, it also outlines how to start the business and the assets and procedures that will need to be in place before looking for work.
As many events will require the same sort of external services, it is important to create a network of reliable companies or individuals whose involvement with your company will be mutually beneficial. The Event Management Diploma Course talks you through who you will need on your team and how you can work together towards the success of both parties.
Without them there is no business. How you build and work on your relationships with clients is one of the most important areas of the business. The course goes into detail about how to be effectual in your communication with clients and how to nurture these relationships.
