The Event Styling Training Academy incorporates Marge B’s School of Excellence which will train students on how to create fabulous events in Marge’s sophisticated style focusing on creating unique events tailor-made to clients’ briefs. “Event planning has a reputation for being a glitzy industry and it is, but there is so much hard work which goes on before an event. Sleepless nights and lots of pressure are as much a part of the job as dressing up and styling gorgeous décor and I plan to teach students how to manage the behind-the-scenes details to ensure that events go off without a hitch,” she says.
The Event Styling Training Academy will offer a series of courses ranging from a two-day weekend workshop, entitled “So You Want to Be an Event Planner?” to a series of comprehensive 8-week courses which offer students in-depth knowledge of the industry. The first Durban weekend workshop for 2016 will happen at The Oyster Box Hotel on 21 and 22 May. Marge says, “This is a fun-filled two-day event planning workshop which will give students an informative, practical introduction to wowing clients with their dream event. Participants will walk away with a manual, a goodie bag and an excellent idea of what event and wedding planning entails.” The workshop will be highly hands-on and interactive, giving students a taste of the elements of event planning including the business and creative sides of the job. “We are going to talk the nitty gritty and have lots of fun creating lavish flower arrangements and opulent tablescapes in the magnificent surrounds of The Oyster Box Hotel,” says Marge. She offers practical “how-to” recommendations to complement every module, which makes for a truly fascinating and amusing journey, and with this distinct hands-on approach.
