I have just discovered this forum and I have seen lots of interesting conversations going on between event professionals so I thought I would join. I would really appreciate some career advice from those with vast events experience.
I may possibly be in the minority within this group as I work for charity and a small one at that. My role requires me to undertake many different activities which, unfortunately, do not involve organising events, in fact, I do not actually get the opportunity to organise many events (something I would love to change).
Due to this, my event organising experience is somewhat lacking. I am no able to obtain new roles because of this and with the current structure of the organisation I work for, I very much doubt I will be able to organise a great number of events if any at all.
I’m asking myself “how do I get more experience” and to be perfectly honest, I’m a little stuck. I am therefore wondering if anyone has any advice/tips?
At my age, I suppose it would be expected for me to have a greater amount of event planning experience, but unfortunately, things haven’t quite panned out that way. Any advice would be really appreciated!
