I had no idea when I signed up to do Dv8’s Event Management course that I would end up running a festival in Dubai! The skills I learnt on the course have been invaluable as I build my exciting career.

I got to take part in so many real life events whilst on my Event Management course, it was amazing! I've always loved going to gigs and festivals but putting on my own event was so rewarding.
