Who is Jodie Kennedy?

I am an energetic, funny, passionate and professional event manager.

My skills have been developed over 25 years of working across major events, stadiums, hallmark events, sporting events, government events, community events, and music festivals around Australia.

I am passionate about unlocking your passion through a series of courses designed for every learner. You will hear some great stories of my experience with some excellent case studies, even some stories of where I continued my learning journey through the tough times.

I am well-known across Australia for my professional event management skills and can-do attitude. I am an accomplished and reputable leader and expert in the events industry and I am keen to share my learnings with you through these courses.


Working with Jodie in the delivery of an event gives you peace of mind that there will a good balance between ‘can do, lets make it happen’ and the practicality of managing timelines, budgets, people and priorities to deliver results.

Jodie is a hard worker, organized, with a high level of experience working in event management, a high standard of excellence and therefore demanding of vendors and co-workers alike, and has excellent follow-through skills.

She has been responsible for marketing, public relations, sponsorship strategies, event management, pre-planning, catering, and in general overall event logistics. I can highly recommend her.
