Our third year Events Management students took part in a Futures Conference at the end of November. A panel of speakers included alumni, academics and practitioners from a range of industries including Comedy Producer Toby Jones, Alumni Cerys Butcher who is working as a Technical Apprentice at Adlib Audio and Teresa Moore, Director of A Greener Festival. Students asked the questions and gained great insight into the opportunities and challenges the panel are facing in relation to issues such as Brexit, technology and sustainability.
