VMA Professional Development Workshops are back!

Jan 31, 2023Blog

The immensely successful VMA Professional Development Workshops return in 2023 commencing in Sydney in March and touring around the country. These face-to-face half-day workshops are targeted primarily at those who work in operations on the ‘frontline’, ready to enhance their skill set and take the next step in their career. This may be a food and beverage supervisor, duty manager, a back of house crew member – or YOU – looking for a fantastic, industry relevant professional development opportunity, delivered by senior leaders of the industry and experts in their subject matter.

What can you expect?

  • Industry leaders sharing their knowledge
  • Experts in their field enhancing your skills
  • Practical solutions to operational issues
  • Tips and pointers that can be implemented in your workplace
  • Engagement and networking with your peers
  • Points towards gaining industry recognised accreditation
  • Opportunity to attend an After 5! Networking event* (select states only)

Priced to allow several employees to attend from the one organisation, now more than ever, is the time to invest in your team and earmark your organisation as an employee of choice.

Keep your young professionals engaged and eager to progress within the venue management industry.

Phil King AVM, Chief Commercial Officer – South Australian Cricket Association at South Australian Cricket Association (SACA), and Chair of the VMA Professional Development comments, ‘The VMA continues to meet the needs of our Members with the Professional Development Workshops in 2023 with an expanded program. We encourage all our Members and the decision makers in our industry to register your team members who are looking to progress their career, who in turn, will bring back practical tips and processes to enhance your workplace. From 2022, we have seen the attendees at these workshops begin their engagement with the VMA and the industry as a whole with some of these emerging leaders attending the Venue Management School and Congress.’
