What's this about?
Event organiser's jobs can be extremely varied. You could be organising music festivals or a charity fundraising trek to Nepal. You could be planning a business conference, a wedding, or the Olympic Games!
To be a good events manager you will be a positive person, good at working with people, thinking on your feet and coming up with solutions quickly.
You may have to work long hours or away from home depending on the job.
There are lots of specialist roles in live events too such as; sound engineers, lighting designers, set designers, roadies, riggers, caterers and security.
A good network of contacts is useful in this industry.
