You're asked to organise an event; what's your reaction? Do you immediately look for volunteers or wholeheartedly embrace the task at hand?

Today’s guest Jodie McLean, has been curating and running events for over a decade. Her business JEM events has worked with some of the biggest names in the country and typically brings to life over 50 events every year. So, when I was toying with the idea of creating an event for my clients, naturally I turned to Jodie to ask for her tips and insights, and today I’ve asked her on the podcast to share her expertise and teach us all how to curate a successful event.

From budgets to venues, guest-lists, entertainment and everything in between, including those must-haves that will make your event memorable for all the right reasons, after listening to this episode organising your next event will be a breeze.

We also chat about how to start an event business and what a career in events is all about.
