About Event Skills Capacity Building


Event management can seem straightforward, until you are overwhelmed by the complexity of it all. Event management these days is stressful, frustrating and loaded with regulations and compliance. But don't fret - with the right advice and guidance, even the most hesitant or new event manager, can learn to delivery great events.

It is now well recognised that event industry is a fast moving field and businesses running events across government, community, corporate and communications sectors need to ensure their employees have the right expertise and skills to keep apace and drive change.

Our approach is unique. Unlike other training organisations, Event Kit is also an active event management agency. Our team is actively working in the field and across the ever-changing design trends, legal requirements, risk management and, of course, consumer demands.

Spearheaded by Rachella Thomas, Event Kit's capacity building focus comes from the idea that sharing expertise and increasing people's skills will improve the industry experience, and benefit all of us. Event Kit coaching is based on an interactive and collaborative training approach, designed to deliver exceptional quality technical content and training design, based on theory and proven practice.

Event Kit event skills coaching is completely bespoke; fully tailored for each client. Both the 1:1 skills coaching and team workshops are designed to suit the specific skills level and project requirements of each client - so we don’t run generic open access workshops around Melbourne.
