Master Certificate of Strategic Event Management

Up to 25 participants log on one evening a week from the comfort of their own homes or offices. Students are able to interact with Mary Anne delivering the course, personal message her during this time, share documents and other information online, ask questions and participate in interactive discussions. Modules are delivered in a cross between the traditional lecture and tutorial models but with all the advantages of online interaction. If students do not wish to participate in the live course delivery they can download each module’s lecture and accompanying transcript. All students can download course templates and handouts and email their mini-assignments through. Using the online platform is very simple and reliable.

Week 1: Events that change minds

Running an event that will make your audience feel warm and fuzzy is relatively straightforward. Producing an event that will foster the conversations that create change for individuals, organisations, industries, even cities, takes more care. Mary-Anne will help you create events that find strategic solutions to problems.

Week 2: Everything you ever needed to know about event administration

This module will provide you with a selection of event formats, ranging from panel discussions to business speed-dating, and templates that will cover everything from table plans to how to choose talent.

Week 3: Be seen and heard: How to run events in partnership with radio and television

Mary-Anne has helped ABC Radio National produce more than 90 Outside Broadcasts for her clients. She has organised other themed media shows ranging from a dozen National Press Club lunches to Good News Week and will share the strategies behind doing this.

Week 4: Make a media fuss

Generating newspaper, radio, television and online media is one of the most cost-efficient ways you can spend your publicity dollars. Find out how you can influence the media.

Week 5: How do you pay for it?

Cost-recovery should be one of the key aims of any event. There are many different models for achieving this, ranging from user pays to full sponsorship. Enabling you to achieve cost-recovery is the aim of this module.

Week 6: It’s not over yet

Many event-managers neglect evaluation. This is vital if you want to justify your event budget or improve future events. You will be provided with templates of questionnaires and surveys and instructions of what to do with them.
