A career in events management

Question

I am currently completing the final year of my degree in hospitality management. I am considering embarking on a career in events management but am unaware of what to expect. Could you possibly give me advice on what attributes I might need to become a successful manager.

  • To succeed in events management you need to have a highly structured approach to work, to be unflappable, to be decisive, and to thrive in a constantly changing and challenging environment.

Both Sodexho and Compass have large events management divisions, so you could try appling to them on spec.
