Corporate Events

The Events team works to support the University’s Corporate Strategy, through the organisation and delivery of high profile events specialising in corporate, alumni and research focused events across Exeter and Cornwall.

We support:

  • Vice-Chancellor lead events
  • Royal/Ministerial visits
  • Building openings – LSI, SERFS, Penryn Sports Centre
  • College or Professional Services led high-level VIP visits to the University
  • We also directly support alumni events, and events for Research Services and Innovation, Impact and Business directorates.

For Exeter campus events, we also work closely with Event Exeter, the University’s dedicated conference and event team. Similarly, for events in Cornwall, we work with FX Plus in Penryn who provide a conference and events service.

We can offer advice / consultation:

The Events team also acts in an advisory role to colleges and professional services who are organising events, to maintain consistency in standard and approach to University events.

We are able to advise on the following:

  • Conferences
  • Seminars and workshops
  • Internal networking events
  • Publicising your event
  • Advice on services and suppliers to contact

We are also able to offer assistance and recommendations with regards to event publicity and can advise on specific tools (eg Eventbrite and email marketing for events).

Event planning toolkit

Our Events Planning toolkit includes templates and resources to help event organisers.

I organise a wide range of alumni events, visits, and engagements to enable Global Advancement to achieve our strategic objectives.

I deliver a range of key events throughout the year, but also provide professional advice for alumni events that are delivered by colleagues working in Colleges to ensure the consistency in standard, style and approach of University events is maintained.

Global Advancement events range from larger scale events of circa 250 people to small level cultivation dinners. Most of the events take place in London. I act as the central contact for events delivered by the wider University where alumni are attending.

I work part-time over three days.
