Want to be in control of things? Do you know what makes an event successful and memorable? Want to travel, party and meet lots of people? A career in Events Management can allow you to experience these things.
With so many degree options out there, here are some top reasons why you should study Event Management:
Not every person who works as an Event Organiser needs to work in that position the whole time. The abilities learned at work are effectively transferable to different ventures. Being able to discuss well with customers, arrange costs with providers and deliberately oversee spending plans are altogether aptitudes that any business will acknowledge later on.
If you’re one who cannot sit facing a laptop for eight hours, you’re going to love it here. You’ll be meeting plenty of people and travelling to different places in search of the materials you’re looking for, for the event.
You will learn how to build good relations with international companies and big-shot clients because the entirety of your job depends on those relations. You will learn useful skills to convince your clients to do good business with you.
“Good fortune is what happens when opportunity meets with planning.”
Important Note: Be prepared for long hours of work, lots of travelling and liaising with clients and suppliers. You’ll also need to be patient because clients will change their minds last minute, yet firm enough to get the job done..
If you opt to study a Diploma in Event Management and continue your degree at the same institution, you will most likely get a one-year exemption. This means that you can enter degree year 2 after diploma.
You know exactly what the time is right now! You show up early for meet-ups, you have your whole day planned out when you wake up. To make it as an events manager, you need to make sure that you’re on time, so that everyone else is as well.
Your clients will come to you with an idea, and it will be your job to transform the idea into a vision, then that very vision into reality.
Your clients will come with ideas of their own, some more insistent than others. While you may be the expert, you will need to carefully thread the waters so that you explain in detail how certain facets would be better done in other ways, while still maintaining the vision your client has.
