ILEA Feedback for The Career Academy
“At ILEA we’re constantly looking to encourage the very best talent to enter the events industry and for our community to keep that talent rewarded and incentivised. Event management isn’t an instinct, it’s a skill that needs to be learnt and understood, and then continually improved upon. The Career Academy is an excellent first step on this process.
There continues to be a debate in the UK and beyond our shores on the benefits between experience and academic learning, for me they need to be picked up in unison. We, as an industry, take on the responsibility of delegate and spectator wellbeing, while we have them in our care; we need to take this seriously and ensure our people have the correct and rigorous training and education.”
Alistair Turner, Past President, ILEA UK Chapter
“The events industry is emerging as a new and contemporary voice, and a leading marketing power house in the world of marketing. As an industry we’re more adept at competing with more traditional mediums such as PR, advertising and media buying, and have convinced businesses and brands of our value. Event professionals are being offered a place at the boardroom table and having a voice in companies that they have never had before.
For us, as industry, to truly grasp this opportunity takes professionalism from the very beginning, and education and continual professional development throughout, our careers. This is a really good course that opens up the importance of great event design, teaches the basics, but then opens up the student to a wider world of influence, and experience marketing.”
