Illuminate is our education project, as part of the legacy of the #EventWell17 inaugural mental health and wellbeing event industry campaign, aimed at event management students, apprentices, and undergraduates, and those in postgraduate education.
The aim of Illuminate is to shine a light and make more visible the importance of self-care and building resilience when choosing and studying towards a career in the event industry.
Through our guest lectures, in partnership with UK universities, colleges and apprenticeship programmes, we will help and support in educating those aspiring to join the industry that good self-awareness and self-care as event professionals will aid and support their resilience, productivity and success.
