Did you know that special events make up a significant and exciting portion of the life of a music venue? In my role here at The UC Theatre, it is my job to introduce our youth to the wonderful world of special events. On January 22nd I had the pleasure to facilitate our very first Advanced Workshop in Special Events.
The class was a very engaging workshop as we practiced role-playing networking techniques during an imaginary event, toured the venue in a mock sales conversation, discussed non-verbal communication, and fine-tuned our business casual dress code. The students were smart, interested and brought a lot of zest to the conversation. My most memorable moment of the event was finding out that one of our Youth Advisory Board graduates was recently offered a job with a company that he was exposed to while working a special event at the theatre. Teaching the workshop also reminded me of how much I love working events, and what a great space we have to offer to do so!
