Description

Conferences allow professionals in many fields to exchange information and knowledge and in doing so are very useful in all realms of business and academia. Conferences are a massive undertaking, and something which is extremely challenging to organise, however it can also be extremely rewarding for everyone involved. 

It’s important that you approach the management of a conference in a systematic manner. This way you can develop a plan that can be followed through to meet the needs and objectives of the target audience.

In this course, we’ll take you through all aspects of conference management, including planning, promoting, organising, running and finalising the conference. It’s designed for those who are beginning to enter the conference planning field and will support their activities.

Accompanying the lectures, we’ve included several downloadable templates and check sheets in Word document format, for you to use and modify as job aids. There are also activities and quiz questions to practice your skills and highlight any knowledge gaps.

Who is the target audience?
  • Marketing Officers or early-career Event Managers who want to plan and manage a successful conference.

Managing Director of Precision Group (Australia)

I have over 30 years of experience in operational management and 20 years in training across a number of sectors including health, education and not-for-profit volunteer management. I specialise in identifying and addressing each sector’s training needs for optimum business performance and sustainability. Having also established and operated successful training facilities in both Australia and New Zealand I am widely recognised and respected for my breadth of knowledge and experience in the education and training fields. 

Establishing Precision Group (Australia) and developing it to be one of the largest Australian providers of educational material in the business field, I was encouraged to share this transmission of knowledge to others who simply want to increase their soft skills and improve themselves and their jobs. I established Business Skills Training for this purpose - to provide the short e-learning courses which you see here on Udemy.

I have written nearly 200 courses relating to all aspects of business – starting at the ground and working up to Board level in incremental steps. Every course includes quizzes or activities and downloadable templates to aid learners to apply and achieve. I look forward to working with you.
