Meet Alexandra An Academy of Wedding & Event Planning Success Story

written by


As a student of the Academy you will gain access to our private Facebook group, Academy Live. The group has become hugely popular with students, graduates, Tutors and even members of our Advisory Board.  Members of the group use the group to feel connected to others who share their passion, ask questions about their course work to each other and to be inspired.  I love that they also head to the group when they have good news to share and that is how I discovered that Alexandra, of our UK Campus was achieving great things in her career, even though she hasn’t finished her course as yet.   Not only has Alexandra launched her business, Alexandra Rose Weddings & Events, she has also gained employment at a UK venue as a Wedding & Event Coordinator.  The story of how this came about is inspiring for anyone who wants a career in the industry and isn’t sure of how to make it happen.
You can read Alexandra’s story of success here. You can arrange a time to talk to Alexandra’s Tutor and UK Academy Course Advisor Zoe by emailing Zoe.  To speak with a Course Advisor from one of our other campuses, simply click on a link to a campus near you and then the Contact Us form from the website.
If you are a Student or Graduate of the Academy with a story of success to share, I would love to hear from you. Simply email me to find out more about what is involved.
