Michelle Ono – Event Belle
Like many of our students, Michelle had been working for a number of years in an ‘event related’ role. In her case she was managing an entertainment venue. We see this a lot…really capable, hard-working, talented individuals working in venues, in hospitality, as PA’s etc but wanting further progression in their careers and not knowing where to turn. They then realise that event management is a logical solution as they have already developed so many related skills eg people management, organisation and problem-solving within a super fast-paced environment.
Michelle loved the idea of “working with people in an ever-changing industry” but realised that while her existing skills were fantastic, she needed more knowledge, more specific practical skills and some pretty great industry connections to move her career to the next level. Michelle found that a Diploma qualification could give her those magic ingredients. Michelle chose to study at College of Event Management because of the college’s long list of established industry contacts. Michelle was a standout from the beginning, so when an employment opportunity at award-winning Sydney agency Belle Laide Events became available through one of our lecturers, Michelle applied and successfully landed her role as Event Coordinator. Since joining Belle Laide, she has since gone on to work on some incredible projects. Career progression problem solved!
