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.
