I had a great opportunity to work with Sue and World Event Center as an intern during my Work Integrated Learning program. She was wonderful to work with, and had exceptional expertise in leading, coaching, and motivation. She also was an intelligent leader who had lots of knowledge in her field, especially marketing and branding. She knew that I was living alone as an international student, right the moment she asked me if I needed someone to talk to during the pandemic when I felt depressed, it made me feel like home. I really appreciated the time I had with Sue and other interns.
I learned so much from Sue that I can confidently say that I know all that pertains to event planning. Sue has this unmatchable great personality due to her genuine kindness while teaching us, backed by her patience during the internship program; this made me learn so much. During the internship program, Mrs. Sue teaches us through motivation various ways to communicate with the clients, which helps us plan an event to its best in order to fit the clients' satisfaction. Apart from teaching us planning and communication skills, she also taught us the best business language to use while at work; this was topped up by her understanding nature towards us during the learning period. Her top-notch leadership skills are also portrayed by how she cultivates the skills of maintaining one calm when one encounters arrogant people during an event, especially during this pandemic period. There are very many reasons why I can never forget Mrs. Sue, but how much she has taught me, which has helped me grow so much, stands out as a unique trait that makes me remember her. I am pleased to have started working with her, which has also built my future career. Thank you, Sue, for helping me grow.
Pandemic=NO EVENTS? NO FUN? Think again! World Event Center is here to fix that! I spent three amazing months at the World Event Center and the experience was awe-inspiring. My life has been totally transformed; I would have never imagined that I would fall in love with virtual events! Not only was I able to become acclimated to online events but I was also given the opportunity to network with industry personnels, attend and plan interesting events and so much more. Oh! Did I mention that Sue is an incredible leader with an exceptional personality which adds the icing on top of the cake! My experience at the World Events Centre was more than I ever imagined it would be and you should want to be there!
My time at World Event Center taught me many important lessons about event planning, coordination, time management and even marketing. This experience gave me the event planning knowledge and the technical expertise to thrive in the up and coming Hybrid event landscape. Sue was a constant source of knowledge and advice and was always helping me to grow, providing answers to all my questions or connecting me with experts in that field. This internship prepared me for the future and I now feel confident going out into the event planning world.
I am absolutely grateful that Sue invited me to be an intern at World Event Center. She’s been more than just a coordinator, she was my Mentor throughout the whole internship. She taught us how to organize and lead virtual events, she inspired us to learn and practice and never be afraid of mistakes. She showed us what the real leadership looks like and what it means to be a part of a team. WEC is a super platform, it is constantly evolving and growing and I am very excited to see it in the lists of top virtual events platforms. Thank you Sue and WEC team!
