Hi,

Dave gave some great advice regarding volunteering to help start building your portfolio.

After that, if you are serious, you will need to complete a course in Event Management EXAMPLE: https://www.aawep.com.au/courses/certificate-in-event-planning/#topArea

This will give you the foundation you need.

Also look at a few businesses and what they’re doing, the type of events they plan to give yourself some guidance.

Next step is look into any advisory or industry associations – for example:

https://www.wpaa.net.au/

After you have reviewed all of this, you need to sit down and plan what type of services do you want to offer, travel planning, party planning, work parties etc etc

Good luck and ask as many questions as you like.

Cheers
