Case Study: Leeds City Council
The UK Centre for Events Management within the School of Events, Tourism and Hospitality in Carnegie Faculty has successfully delivered the University's first Business Enhancement Scheme.
The project was commissioned by Leeds City Council and created 16 weeks of employment for a recent graduate. As well as access to a graduate with knowledge of the specific subject area, Leeds City Council also benefited from the input of event management experts from within the University.
"The scheme enables businesses and organisations to benefit from our research in specific areas, embedding knowledge to enhance products and services." Jackie Mulligan, Principal Lecturer at Leeds Metropolitan.
As a result of this scheme, Leeds City Council now has a robust and scalable evaluations toolkit which provides a consistent approach to evaluation, will allow benchmarking of cultural events to take place on an annual basis. The local authority will be able to reflect on the value of culture by measuring the social and economic impacts of cultural events organised in the city.
