A total of 60 participants from 19 countries across 4 continents joined us and the UPM Sports Academy throughout the 6-days Sports Event Management Foundation Level 1 course from September 23-30.
This maiden initiative that was organised virtually provided participants with insights into the planning, organisation and management of sporting events from Course Instructors who are experienced practitioners and experts in the industry.
As the course was organised virtually, we were able to engage 19 Course Instructors located in 10 different countries to share their knowledge and provide tips that are not obtainable from books.
At the end of the course, we conducted a survey to gauge the performance of the course in terms of content, course instructors and the organisation and the feedback that we received exceeded our expectations! All topics were rated 4 and above out of 5 and overall, the course got a rating of 4.8 out of 5!
The response and feedback that we received were extremely encouraging despite the extension of time that we had in all sessions! This could not have been achieved without the dynamic engagement of the participants during the sessions and the candor of the Course Instructors.
Time management is on our priority list to improve the next time around. Thank you to all parties involved.
