  • "I think there is a tendency in the operations community for us to stick our heads down and just get on with the job in front of us, regardless of the difficulties. What the Ops Nest is providing is not only an environment where we can access structured learning resources but also a community where we can put our heads above the parapet and ask for opinions, give help and advice and share best practice with others who care about the events sector as much as we do.”

    Nicola Harrison Exhibition Project Manager at MACH
  • "For me, enrolling in Ops Nest has been one of the few highlights of being in the Events Industry at this challenging time. I am especially grateful that my company have invested in a corporate membership for myself and my colleagues, it has definitely boosted morale in the team and allowed us to chat over COVID-19 challenges with more confidence. This is such an empowering community to be a part of and I already feel like I have learned so much from being a part of it in just a couple of months."
