Event management is a highly pressured environment, and
senior managers increasingly comment on the stresses and
pressures of the job. A professional approach, effective planning
and management are essential to building professional
confidence and capability, leading to the consistent delivery of
successful events. This course aims to enhance the skills of
senior professionals and develop management competencies to
equip them to deliver well organised events and to help minimise
work pressures and stresses through effective planning and a
systematic approach to project management. It will also explore
trends impacting on the delivery of events, such as ‘experience
design’ and ‘the digital economy’.
This course runs in tandem with the two-day Event Safety & Security Management course, and both courses are targeted at senior (strategic-level) Events Managers from across the GCC. The ECFEM programme will be delivered by a senior member of the Executive Training Team from Edinburgh Napier University’s Business School. The Course Director possesses extensive practical experience of strategic management and operations of events, and delivery of executive training internationally.
