Inspiring the next generation of event managers

Our Production and Events Co-ordinator Dan Evans visited Sheffield Hallam University to give a presentation on the Event Management industry to students at their Future Fit Employability Event.

There was something quite comforting about approaching the University entrance and realising that little had changed since departing back in 2010. Although it is a bit upsetting that what seemed like yesterday is now four years ago, it was a privilege to be invited back as an industry professional.

It doesn’t matter how much preparation you do when presenting, nerves will always be prevalent. I like to think it means that you care about what you’re going to deliver, and for me helping people get the experience they need to break into the industry is certainly that.
