Supreme Events Impress
A last minute pivot from a live to online event is a success thanks to Angliss Diploma of Events students.
The Travellers Aid Australia's Workforce Social Event was managed by students Maddie Davies, Bree Armstrong, Rhonda Kruize and Julia Coates who teamed up to create project group Supreme Events supported by events teacher Sandra Grima.
The event management of this event was part of their final assessment.
The staff and volunteer event was meant to be held in-person at the Angliss Restaurant and was pivoted at the last minute to be online with the Melbourne lockdown in place on Thursday 10 June.
"I would like to acknowledge the professional manner in which the team from Supreme Events conducted themselves. Their ability to plan and deliver was very impressive. The original event plan had built a lot of positive anticipation among our staff and volunteers. The need to go online could not be helped and the team's ability to adapt to this need was remarkable. They did not disappoint! The event went off like clockwork and the feedback from our people was extremely positive," CEO Travellers Aid Australia Elias Lebbos said.
Event management teacher Sandra Grima said converting the Travellers Aid Workforce Event from a live event to a Virtual event was a wonderful learning experience for the team.
"It highlighted their resilience and ability to adapt to change at the last minute, which meet the skills currently demanded by the event industry in this current climate at the moment."
