Having finished my degree in Business and Event Management in 2012, joining an events company has been a dream of mine for many years. What I never thought possible has come true. When Lisa asked me to join the team, she warned me that my first few weeks would be somewhat of a ‘baptism of fire’, and she was right!
I had the pleasure of attending one of our larger events in Liverpool for four days. It was ‘go go go’ from the off and I loved it! I had the chance to watch our amazing UK champion beatboxer astound a large audience of unsuspecting delegates. I was covered in glitter by our art energiser and witnessed our extremely talented ‘One Voice’ performers get people singing together.
We turned a bare banquet hall into a vision of glitz and glamour, filled with beautiful chandelier centre pieces and with sparkle everywhere. I really enjoyed helping to make the event extra special for our client. Did our feet hurt? Yes. Were we tired? Yes. Would I do it all over again? Absolutely! The event taught me so much and affirmed that this is the career for me.
In the last few weeks, I have attended a drumming team building session. Before my very eyes, I watched a group of people that had barely touched a drum before transform into a percussion orchestra, which created beautiful music together as one unit. I have also observed a group of manly Maori warriors perform and teach a Haka, showing so much tradition and meaning in every movement. It was such a great way to get people laughing and sharing an original experience together.
Given our facilitators are all so passionate and talented, I am so proud to organise these team building events around the world for people to experience. So much effort and attention to detail goes in to deliver each event.
I am somewhat new to this industry and it has been an eye opening and awe-inspiring experience so far. In my spare time, I am your typical creative type. I enjoy cooking and making all-natural skin products and jewellery. My job really appeals to my creative side and I genuinely love coming into work every day! Already, I have learnt so much from the team and am eager to immerse myself further into every aspect of this wonderful world of events.
I look forward to talking to you soon. Please contact us.
