Organising Successful Events
AudienceThis workshop is part of the new Lancaster Professional Programme and has been developed for all members of administrative, technical and manual staff of the University, but is particularly relevant to those within grades 1-6.
This workshop will explore successful approaches to the organisation of events, whether this is for conferences, guest lectures or student open days. Practical strategies for planning and promoting events will be discussed, together with approaches to managing risk and tips for ensuring that events run smoothly on the day. With additional input from key University staff.
At the end of the workshop participants will be able to:
- Describe the key aspects of event planning from conception through to execution and evaluation
- Utilise a range of tools to help planning, execution and evaluation
Some background reading and application of theory through practical exercises will be encouraged.
This programme is delivered by Jonathan Bowyer, a highly experienced coach, facilitator, trainer, leader and manager and Kath Houston a career coach and freelance trainer and senior lecturer at the University of Central Lancashire with a special interest in personal development, confidence and resilience.
