Debbie Skewes has taken over the role of Secretariat for the Melbourne Chapter of ISES.
10 years ago Debbie reached the peak of her career after many years experience in the corporate area organising and directly working with Senior Management including Boards, CEO’s and Chairman where part of her role was to organise functions and events for the industry she worked in.
The timing was right for a career change and so 9 years ago after much research and planning her passion for commencing her own event management company, Events Edge, became a reality.
Debbie was on the path to build on her dreams and fulfil her goals and ambitions organising successful and memorable functions and events for corporate and private clients.
She has also been a sessional lecturer in Wedding Planning, Event Logistics, and Weddings and Special Events where she enjoys sharing her industry and case study knowledge with the students. At Christmas time she’s covered in glitter while creating gorgeous Christmas trees and decorations.
Debbie joined ISES when she commenced in the industry, met like-minded people, and became a member of the ISES Subcommittee organising monthly showcase events for the industry. She is passionate about ISES having met, worked with, and befriended many members.
Debbie is excited about this new opportunity and expects her life to be busy and more than fulfilled as the ISES Secretariat plus creating her own events. She is looking forward to catching up with old friends and meeting new members.
