Opening up the prospects of students giving then insight into the variety of roles available as an events professional. It isn’t just the events manager in Festivals or Sports, not saying these are lesser roles but you can work for government, diplomats and more but until young people have that insight, they will never aim for it.
The education system has been myopic in scope limiting the knowledge of roles and work environments such as agencies etc. So Events101 comes in to expand the knowledge and also provide assistance to students who want to apply for roles and need guidance.
We currently have 2 interns who have gone through this process of building this virtual event learning hands on what the future of events will look like.
