New appointment at EEAA fresh from TAFE NSW

TAFE NSW graduate Emily Leung has been appointed events operations and marketing executive at The Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA).

“Exhibition and business events have been particularly impacted by the effects of COVID-19, but I have been lucky enough to work in a role where I can use my skills to support the recovery goals of the industry so our members are ready to take on the new world of business events,” she said.

“Thanks to TAFE NSW I feel prepared to take on this challenge while being new to the industry. Everything I learnt in my Diploma of Event Management has been useful in my role, from gathering speakers and managing technology, I even refer to the risk assessment matrix from my course in planning the event.”

TAFE NSW Head Teacher in Travel, Tourism and Events, Kathy Herd said it was fantastic to see Emily applying the practical skills and experience gained during her studies to the workplace.

“Her innovative approach using digital technology and problem-solving skills on this global event will benefit both her employer and the industry in this challenging environment,” Herd said.
