Event Manager, One Girl
Master of Management (Tourism and Event Management)
After 15 years of practical management experience, Leanne wanted a career change into events management.
“It took some time, but I eventually realised that postgraduate study was the learning level I was at, as I already had so much in the way of life and work experience. My postgraduate studies were appreciated in my first events role—it demonstrated I was prepared to improve myself and not rest on experience alone to pursue a new career.”
"My study stretched me both academically and personally. It gave me a competitive edge."
Leanne now works as an Event Manager at One Girl, a non-profit organisation that gives women and girls access to education.
“I am responsible for the end-to-end management of the Cocktail Gala fundraising event. With significant success in similar fundraising event roles in the past, coupled with my contemporary education from the UniSA Business School, I feel thoroughly equipped and confident to take on any management role.”
