Shannon is loving her Team Spirit placement

UCLan Event Management has had very strong links with Oldham based Team Spirit for a number of years. This year we have four Events students currently on placement in various departments at Team Spirit and they are all loving the experience. Shannon Noone is in the Events Team. Her role is to: send out digital pictures post-event, collate feedback, deal with wages and expenses and of course work on the events themselves. Her tutors recently visited her to find out how she is enjoying her placement. Shannon explains:
"I have loved being here; it’s like a family and it’s relaxed but at the same time very professional. I have my own project promoting Event Management as a career in schools and I am enjoying that.

I enjoy the theming side of events and one of my favourites was a masquerade ball at The Monastery in Manchester. The theme was a Venetian Ball and we themed the whole journey including ‘airport check in’, ‘flight’ and arrival. The venue is spectacular and it made the event extra special."

Shannon is looking forward to learning more about events and getting more first-hand practical experience before her return to UCLan in September for the final year of her Event Management degree.
