We look forward to launching another successful year of professional development, with our first PD Workshop of 2024 set for HBF Stadium in Perth on Wednesday, 6 March. We are equally excited that Scott Taylor CPP will once again be joining us as the Anchor Speaker for many of our workshops.
Here’s what the VMA community had to say about PD Workshops in 2023:
“I enjoyed the workshop and the speakers presented well; providing information on important topics while keeping them engaging. I will definitely be interested in attending further VMA workshops!” – Jaxon Gibb, Perth PD Workshop
“The session with Scott Taylor was really interesting. I have a Masters degree in Event Organisation and it is the first time I have received training in security. I think this very important that event managers receive this kind of training to be more vigilant during their events, to have a better understanding of the security staff’s constraints and requirements and to work better as a team with them.” –Elodie Auvary, Canberra PD Workshop
“All speakers were very informative and it’s great they’re always willing to talk and give advice to everyone.” – Brendan Coull, Melbourne PD Workshop
