“This course under Deb teaches us more about how we think and act – it is a lifeskills course as much as it is an Events Management intro course. It prepares you to approach and deal with people with an open mind and heart as well as giving very practical professional applications of involving yourself in the workplace, social situations and volunteering within your community. It is a stepping stone to wherever you want to go or whatever you want to do. It wakes you up! And makes you accountable”.

“The course content was brilliant and what was covered was excellent.”

“Guidelines about volunteer work, planning for an event, difficult situations/issues that can arise in an event. I see my self being more confident and equipped to apply for both volunteer and paid work. Also planning and initiating an event. Skills will allow me to directly participate in a public event/community event.”

“What I learned from this course it will be helpful in a volunteer role, paid work as well as in personal life.”

“Learning new things, gained new skills, learnt about other people, learnt new words and meanings. I have enrolled in a Cert II in floristry at Melb Polytechnic. I can use some of the skills I learnt in this course to the next course, team discussion and speaking.”
