Who Am I?
I know this is supposed to be a business based blog but I also think it is important to share my personal experiences with you, as behind every business is a human story.
I am a mum of three, Isabella age 9, Max age 5 and Jake age 1, they keep me on my toes and I love them to pieces. However, I also have a real passion and drive for my business and I often think it keeps me sane. My events experience comes from working at The Economist Newspaper for 6 years, here I got to travel and organise some fabulous big budget events. A job I loved but once the children arrived, I needed something which allowed me to do all the important things with them too.
I don't long to be a millionaire or take over the world, I would love to build a brand, be the best I can be, be able to combine a career with still being around my children and contribute a decent income to take the pressure off of my hard working husband.
It hasn't been easy but I honestly believe that now we are the best at what we do. We have parents who come along to us and give us an open brief, just turning up on the day, we take the pressure off them. Then we have those who want to be involved with us at every step and we are happy to work like this too.
Our clients range from everyday parents to celebrities and people at the top of The Times Rich list, with budgets from £200 to £40,000. Believe it or not.
What I am excited about is the growth in our corporate work from banks, shopping centres, retail chains, hotels, football clubs and pr companies to name but a few.
Our wedding activity pack was recently listed by confetti.co.uk and we hope to develop further own branded products in the near future.
Our online shop is just starting to take-off and we will be listing some new products very soon.
We pride ourselves on our creativity and every week we are completing new proposals which are bespoke for our clients.
So there you go, when I think about it I love what I do and hope you will too!
Bye for Now
