Profiles and Testimonials

“I have always loved running events and throwing parties, so when the Diploma of Events caught my eye I was hooked. I knew that’s exactly what I wanted to do.
 
The Gordon was convenient, flexible, and offered lots of support. Being taught by someone like Isabel who has real experience in the events sector, made a huge difference to me. I was determined to absorb all of her knowledge and hands-on experience. We were also encouraged to seek out our own placements and contacts in areas that we were interested in, which helped me start my events career.

I currently work for the Leukaemia Foundation on their VIC/TAS Campaigns team. My role includes supporting campaign participants, organising public events and planning the Leukaemia Foundation’s annual fundraising campaigns. I love working in this sector, the people I meet every day are amazing!”
