The NEP Host Broadcast Training Program joined forces with Griffith University to cover the 2017 Chefs de Mission seminar on the Gold Coast this week.
 
Over four days, from the 8th-11th of October, delegates participated in workshops, presentations and venue tours, including the Athletes' Village.
 
The Chefs de Mission seminar is one of the most important gatherings leading in to the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
 
Griffith University students were tasked with capturing vision throughout the event, conducting interviews and participating in venue tours.
 
Operating out of a production office, students worked hand in hand with industry professionals to assist in delivering a series of video packages covering the event.
 
A highlights real of the event was presented to the delegates on their final day, with two packages yet to come.
 
The seminar was a unique opportunity for students to interact with industry professionals
and work on a fast paced, legitimate project. 
 
Such opportunities are difficult to come by and as a student are imperative for
future development.
 
Industry-based internships are paramount and provide a work integrated learning
environment for students.  They boost confidence, create networking opportunities and
most importantly, provide real world training.
 
The NEP Host Broadcast Training Program has been working with universities ahead of the 2018 Commonwealth Games to deliver a rounded and experienced team for the Games.
