ICC Sydney reinforces commitment to upskill talent

The venue continues to invest in its people as three of its top candidates progress through to the second year of Venue Management School.

Three of ICC Sydney’s top candidates have progressed through to their second year of the Venue Management Association’s (VMA) School, further strengthening the Centre’s commitment to training and development.

Designed for major venue operators in the Asia Pacific region, the rigorous two-year Venue Management School (VMS), now in its thirtieth year, was developed to upgrade skills and knowledge and establish lifelong connections — all facilitated through venue industry recognised instructors.

ICC Sydney chief executive officer and group director – convention centres, ASM Global (APAC), Geoff Donaghy said that he is proud of the large contingent of representatives that have worked their way through the VMS to date.

“In line with the ASM Global ACTS framework, ICC Sydney strives to invest in the development of our people and provide pathways to enrich their careers. Our clients benefit from their in-depth venue management knowledge, and it enhances our team members’ lived experience while working at our venue,” Donaghy said.

“With five alumnus among the ranks of our culinary, audio visual and event services teams at ICC Sydney, and three more represented in the current cohort, ICC Sydney offers event organisers access to well-informed, professional support when delivering their world class events.”

ICC Sydney director of human resources, Luke Fleming said the latest students advancing through the program will benefit from exposure to over 30 bespoke subjects of venue management as well as ten days of in-depth face-to-face training at VMS in November each year.

“With a direct link to leaders in the venue management sector, participants not only learn the theory of operational methodologies, but the full breadth of managing a major venue – from marketing, sales, event management, finance, logistics and legal considerations – the course covers it all. Importantly, they can develop lifelong relationships with contemporaries from around the Asia Pacific region,” Fleming said.
