Working for fun

Kendal Fisher completed a Bachelor of Business (Marketing/Event Management)

Workplace learning: Disney World Resorts, Florida

"Victoria University is highly regarded for its Event Management courses, and students have the opportunity to learn from some of the industry's experts. The course gave me fundamental technical, theoretical and hands-on skills needed to succeed in the industry.

The Disney International College Program presented a good opportunity for me to gain practical experience. I travelled to Orlando, Florida, where I worked for six months in entertainment at Disney World Resorts.

I learnt a great deal about the operations of the Disney organisation from all angles, and specifically in events management. I observed logistical aspects and the front-of-house, which helped develop my hands-on skills.

If you are looking for challenges from your lecturers and tutors, I would definitely recommend this course. You will be given the tools to succeed. It's up to you to use them wisely.

I plan to return to do more study after gaining some further industry experience. My goal is to establish one of the most recognised creative events agencies in Victoria."
