Training and coaching
Events Tasmania organises an annual program of free master classes for Tasmanian event organisers, offers a scholarship to the Australian Centre for Event Management and can provide advice on tertiary and vocational training for event managers.
In 2012, Events Tasmania hosted master classes on leveraging the power of the web presented by Jason Bresnehan; a second set of our popular DIY marketing plan master classes presented by Kim Skildum-Reid; grant information sessions were held around the state; Paul Gudgin presented a two-day Festival & Event Management Masterclass: and Drysdale Institute and Events Tasmania presented the Events Exchange, a one day conference and networking opportunity for the event industry.
The 2013 Event Development Program is planned for May-September, with opportunities announced in late March.
Events Tasmania is a sponsor of the Australian Centre of Event Management (ACEM) at the University of Technology Sydney. This sponsorship has helped establish the online Event Management Library and assisted 15 Tasmanians to gain an Executive Certificate in Event Management since 2008.
In the first half of this year, two positions to attend the Executive Certificate in Event Management Course in Melbourne on Tuesday 15 April - Friday 19 April 2013 will be offered.
If you are a local council employee, an event employee, or a volunteer event manager, please apply by Friday, 8 March 2013.
