With only hours to go before the year is out, I always think it’s important to look back and reflect before we leap into a fresh new start. I’m sure people in many industries are the same, but I know that most people in the corporate events industry give all their energy and focus to each event, making certain that people experiencing the party, conference or team building day have an unforgettable time.
Once it’s all over, our thoughts and dedication are directed to the next job in hand. I think we sometimes forget what we actually achieve throughout the year as a whole. We collectively create amazing days and nights for people. We entertain, educate, inspire and inform thousands of individuals through all the work we are asked to do.
So here’s to all of us!
Looking back, there are a few special moments that stand out for me personally.
Choosing large, bizarre items from a BP Connect store and then rehearsing with five other drummers to play these objects for a massive conference opener was definitely unique. We created a fantastic urban percussive piece that our street dancers performed to.
Adding many new outdoor activities and family fun days to our events list this year was exciting, and the resulting events were great fun to do. Being involved with a global Internet link up with 8,000 other work colleagues was thrilling.
The audience reaction in Croatia to a mass dance activity was unbelievable. I will never forget the energy and feeling of goodwill in the room.
There were also some totally moving One Voice team singing events this year where the participants sang their hearts out and blew us all away.
This year was full of moments like the above example – big, small, here in the UK and worldwide. However, the one very special ‘event’ that stands out more than any other – and will stay with me forever – was the birth of my baby Rose.
Her constant openness, sense of wonder and infectious humour is an inspiration every day. She’s the perfect team builder in the family!
