Claire Eason-Bassett has been appointed to the Eventia Education Committee in her role as a lecturer at Falmouth University and as managing director of Mackerel Sky Events.
As a member of the committee, Eason-Bassett will be involved in developing event management education approaches nationally, working with other leading educators and event managers.
She commented: “Developing our current and future event managers is vital to the success and sustainability of the industry.
“It requires our trade body, Eventia, to engage with academia to enable our graduating students to be employable within the sector and to support a range of continuing professional development activities.
“I am pleased to be part of the national group that is working with event agencies, suppliers and venues through Eventia to collaborate with universities and education providers and I look forward to developing and building that relationship to support our future event makers.”
