Travel Arrangements & Event Planning


Did you know that travel booking and event organisation is one of the most in-demand skills for assistants! Often, making travel arrangements and planning events appears in a job description but not in the job title. That’s where our short course comes in.

Making travel arrangements and keeping managers, executives and clients happy while on the road requires a lot of meticulous planning. On this course, you will learn how to be organised, proactive and ready for any potential issues whether you are booking accommodation, flights, cars and more.

The vast majority of people planning events lack experience or qualifications and yet are expected to deliver outstanding events. This short course will also teach you the essentials of event planning with practical content to give you the key tools you need to run successful events on time and on budget.
