Creative Entrepreneur – Next Generation business event

22 January 2016

Alex Fenton, Producer of the Creative Entrepreneur event

How can a business school teach entrepreneurship? Can you learn how to develop a business model or a marketing plan from a book? Meeting and hearing from successful international entrepreneurs sharing their real life stories, gaining feedback on ideas and establishing new links are all great ways to learn about entrepreneurship and grow your network.

At Salford we recognise the importance of strong links with industry. They help us keep our teaching relevant to the real world and mean we can offer great opportunities to help our students to get employment-ready.

Our Creative Entrepreneur event is a key example of this in practice. At the event, held annually at our state of the art campus at MediaCityUK, individuals from partner organisations volunteer their time and share their experience with students at the University of Salford.

At the latest event, on 25th of November 2015, we welcomed over 40 guest speakers who delivered an exciting programme of master-classes, panel sessions and installations to inspire, inform and entertain over 460 attendees. These were a combination of local businesses, University staff, students and local colleges. Several of our courses and modules were present, creating great opportunities for our students. Read on to find out more about key points from the event and what happened.

What is Event Management?

5 May 2015

International event managementHave you ever wondered about the intricate details behind the Olympics opening and closing ceremony? How about the organisation of the World’s biggest fair Expo 2015?

What about the winning country’s coloured confetti that falls down on the finals of the FIFA World Cup? All these occasions are great examples of event management in practice.

There is a lot of thought that goes into organising such complex international events. The average spectator is unaware of the complexities and all the planning that is behind all of these unforgettable experiences. These occasions are created by event management professionals that work tirelessly co-ordinating, planning and managing teams of individuals.
