Community Workshop

Festivals and Events Mentor Training - Online

Risk 2

Our November training program will be offering group and individual 1-on-1 sessions with our facilitators.

This is your opportunity to ask those specific questions about your event/project and have some serious 1-on-1 mentoring to get you underway with your planning, promotion, safety and reporting. You will need to book, as places are limited.

What you will get
A one and a half-hour session with the facilitator and Council Officer on topic of your choice.
What you need to do prior to the session – provide the following - a short description on your group or you so the facilitator knows who you are and your desired outcomes for the event/project. You also need to come up with five specific questions you need the answers to, this way the facilitator and you/your group can make the most of your 1.5 hour session. This information will need to be submitted one week prior to your scheduled session.

Our facilitator
Beaspoke Safety’s ethos is to work with you, not against you, to advise, not dictate, and to assist you with practical solutions to you and for your event. With over twenty years risk and safety experience, as well as having previously worked as an event manager and event producer for ten years prior to that, Bea Tomlin is not your ‘typical' risk and safety , consultant. Bea understands the need for creativity but is also passionate about striving to ensure event organisers know the laws and rules they have to consider. And in doing so empowers others so that risk and safety becomes part of your everyday process. You don't know what you don't know, until you do know!
