Be scene as a leader
  • Thursday 17 July 2014

Leading people and managing volunteers will be on the agenda at the Sunshine Coast Events Network (scene) educational workshop to be held at TAFE Queensland East Coast from 1.30pm on Wednesday, July 23.

Open to all event industry professionals, Sunshine Coast Council’s scene program is aimed at those who are new to the events industry, are looking to run a new event or would like to further develop existing events or skill sets. 

The second scene workshop for 2014 entitled People Power won’t disappoint with two professional industry presenters primed to share their experience.

Kicking off the day will be Karen McBride, the Volunteer Manager at Woodford Folk Festival. Karen has managed over 2700 volunteers at Woodford for the past eight years and will share practical tips and tricks for recruiting and retaining volunteers for your events.

Back by popular demand is Leonie Murray, Director of Workplace Improvement Initiatives. Leonie has extensive experience in assisting organisations with leadership development and people management including helping event organisers get the best performance out of their staff and positive results for their event.

Bookings for the workshop are essential. Cost to attend is $30 per person and $25 for students or pensioners, including a delicious afternoon tea.
