My industry experience is working with corporates and global brands in an account management and venue coordination role. Since becoming a University Lecturer and Course Leader I have continued to participate in consultancy roles and expanded my event management freelance positions to public outdoor events, safety management and volunteer management.
I champion the need for practitioners and practical skills in HE. Experience must be embedded within curriculum to produce the skills and knowledge that Event Managers require in the future. Part of this is finding valuable opportunities for our students. If you are looking to be involved in HE, graduate recruitment or offering placements for students in Event Management related roles contact me to discuss.
I am also conducting research into Co-Creation at Conferences. As a university we are always looking for new collaborations in Knowledge Transfer and Business and Enterprise.
