Our event management courses
As one of the top three non-financial motivators, 76% of employees want opportunities for career growth.
Ensuring the smooth running of an event requires excellent project management and operational skills. While dealing with venues and suppliers and getting maximum value for money requires top level negotiation skills and the ability to scrutinise contracts.
All of these skills along with good management, customer service and logistics can be taught and every single one of them improves with expert training, coaching and feedback.
We have a comprehensive list of event management training courses that cover the full range of skills your event managers and operations teams need. From our very popular Negotiating and contracting with event venues course to our Health & safety for events course, we have programmes to support the development of all members of your team.
We can combine all of these programmes with one-to-one sessions and mentoring, special project work and bespoke masterclasses to ensure your sales teams remain on a constant trajectory of engagement and development, culminating in unrivalled professional competence.

This was probably the most energising and inspiring two days ‘training’ I have ever participated in.
I learned some great tips on how to approach negotiating with hotels, the trainer’s presentation style is great, he kept the interest level of the group very high.
Very comprehensive and informative. Very useful, many ideas and suggestions will be implemented straight after the course.
