A 2-day seminar which uses a strong foundation of Project Management to plan, implement and manage events. The course defines a methodology to ensure that the correct events are chosen, clear objectives set, all key stakeholders are identified and logistics are well defined and managed to ensure total success.
We use little theory and lots of practice, with active feedback, discussion and exercises
