Format: Workshop
Suitable for: All

There are likely to be various opportunities for you to organise academic events during your PhD. These may be subject specific seminars within your School or regional conferences for subject organisations. Alternatively, you may want to get together with students from other Schools to organise a cross-disciplinary event under a particular theme (see page x). Whatever the type of event, getting involved will help you to develop useful transferable skills (project and time management, committee experience, etc.) that can be used in a wide variety of future career paths.

This workshop will explain the practicalities of event organisation including:
* setting up a steering committee
* applying for funding/budgeting
* determining the type and focus of an event
* identifying suitable venues (internal or external)
* catering, publicity and tips for general administration
