Events Management Workshop for Secondary 4 Talent Development Programme (TDP) Students
Secondary 4 Talent Development Programme (TDP) students went to Republic
Polytechnic on 29 March 2018 for an Events Management Workshop. Students were
taught how to plan a programme for an event in terms of logistics, target
audience, budget and publicity.
In this workshop, I learnt
about key factors that make up an event and how to ensure the success of an event.
I also learnt that managing an event is not an easy feat. It requires a
lot of planning, organising, and of course, management of people. Hence,
I am more appreciative of the events that are organised for us by our teachers
and fellow students
Moreover, I like this
workshop because there were many hands-on activities and we got to actually
plan an event and present our proposal to everyone. It was very interesting to
see that every group presented the same event very differently.
Through the workshop, I
learnt skills such as presentation skills and decision-making skills. With
these skills, I feel that I will be more confident at organising events as I
will make sure that I do not miss out any important components in order for the
event to run smoothly.

I learnt the different steps
that an event planner needs to go through to ensure the success of an event. In
addition, I realised the importance of having a schedule. Planning an event is
always time-consuming and problems will occur when people do not complete their
tasks on time. Furthermore, every team player must possess a strong sense of
discipline and pride in order for work of high standard to be completed on
The workshop was rather
interesting as I gained new insights on how to plan an event. Moreover, it was
very hands-on. We can use the skills that were taught right away.
This workshop was really
enriching as I learnt useful life skills that actually prepares me for the
future. When I move on to a tertiary institution and the workforce in the
future, I am confident that I will be able to manage and organise an event.
As a whole, I really enjoyed the casual format
of the workshop. It was not conducted in a typical lecture style and the trainer
was very engaging. I like the part when we had to complete our proposal in
30 minutes. This actually tested our time management skills and I felt
challenged to come up with a feasible idea with my fellow teammates. I enjoyed
the group work and my team rejoiced when we received a prize for the best
