Human relations, creativity and classic management tasks

In 2011 I finished my degree programme in International Event Management at IUBH and now work full time as an event management trainer at a private educational institution. In this capacity I teach long term unemployed people about the professional field of event management.
I also work as a freelance event manager for several event agencies and organise trade fair appearances, local corporate events, anniversaries and weddings (www.linda-events-hochzeiten.de).

My two jobs cover a wide range of event management. My freelance work for various agencies allows me to get to know new people and projects on a regular basis, which means I constantly face new challenges and can learn from others. This is where I have the opportunity to work creatively. However, I also deal with typical management issues: numbers, data and strategies. What I like about my fulltime job is the close relationships to people. This is where I can pass on my expertise and experience to others.

For a successful career in event management a high degree of flexibility, resilience and self-motivation is necessary. One also must be able to work under tremendous pressure without losing one's bearings. The most important prerequisite for a successful career in event management is love for the profession. Only then is one willing to sacrifice even weekends and holidays for the job.
