Traditional event with modern twist for the University of Southampton
CG saw its hard work come together when Dame Helen Alexander DBE was installed as The University of Southampton’s seventh Chancellor at a glittering event today (April 19).
Back in February, CG was asked by the university to help create and manage the momentous occasion. Ensuring all aspects of the event were in line with the university’s branding, CG recommended a traditional ceremony with a modern twist.
Working hard to design staging layout, manage suppliers, develop the running order of the day and even source finishing touches such as two ornate antique thrones, CG’s event management skills were truly put to the test.
The highly successful event, attended by dignitaries from across Hampshire, was broadcast live around university and online while it took place at the Turner Sims Concert Hall on the university's Highfield Campus.
CG works closely with further education providers in developing courses, delivering guest lectures and providing award-winning marketing communications services such as PR, design, advertising event management and social engagement.
