Benefits of Professional Development – Why We Need To Stay Up To Date
Much like our Association clients do for their members, we place great importance on continuing professional development for all employees at GEMS Event Management Australia.
Exposing our team to various continuing professional development opportunities,
whether it’s accredited training, networking, u
pskilling or venue and supplier familiarisation, helps us stay ahead of the game in our industry and in turn offer the best service and knowledge to our clients.
Earlier this year, our Managing Director, Julie McGraw and National Operations Manager, Peta Webster attended the Meetings and Events Australia (MEA) National Conference in Brisbane, Queensland. The MEA National Conference program was structured around 6 key streams - Future Leaders, Sales and Marketing, Best Practice Case Studies, Event Management, Event Business and Technology.
Each of these areas provided numerous insights and made us more aware of the changing trends and directions in our profession as a Professional Conference Organiser. Particularly with the rise in integration of technology, the pace of change in the business events space is faster than it’s ever been.
We also understand the importance of making professional development fun and engaging when we deliver a Conference, so we ensure that through the events we attend, we are on the look out for inspiration to re-energize our creativity and translate it into something we can deliver for our clients.
If you’re interested in introducing some new elements to your Conference or Event, or turning your conference format completely on its head, we are armed with plenty of innovations and case studies to implement for you!
