A professor of the Special Event Management class at Humber College recently asked Graham Bauckham, Varsity Tents General Manager, to visit the class for a short presentation and Q&A about the logistics and management of large scale events.
Thrilled at the chance to meet with Toronto’s newest up and coming event planners, on February 3rd 2011, Graham did exactly that. The format for the presentation was relaxed: Graham mingled among the classroom both presenting and answering questions about the history of Varsity Tents, himself and event logistics.
The future event managers and planners were captivated with Graham’s energy and expertise. Several of the students became followers of Varsity Tents on Twitter and followed it up with a like on Facebook.
It was wonderful meeting with the group, and we hope these future Toronto event specialists will become event partners with Varsity Tents. Relationships are so important in the event industry and connecting with these students is a bond that we were glad to make.
