About The Trio

Get Ahead In EventsEvents 101 and Event Graduates are three organisations aimed at helping young people from a first year student to a junior event professional get the most out of their career.

Our Why

The events industry has been around since the beginning of history and has revolutionised with the times, yet in recent times the needle has been slow to move, especially for students from underrepresented communities. We understand the challenge for students and graduates to thrive in the current and future workforce. During a time of distance learning, we want to ensure young people are still given the opportunity to explore the entirety of the industry regardless of what stage in your journey you are at .
