We recently had the pleasure of spending the weekend with a room full of incredible humans, all at very different stages in their careers within the Wedding + Events Industry. Some were just starting to dabble on the side whilst daydreaming about having their own business one day and others were seasoned veterans with established businesses but frustrated with the unrealistic expectations of clients and the lack of financial freedom.
Everyone was united in their eagerness to learn to work smarter not harder, get more creative and create processes that would bring an efficiency and simplicity to what they do. Day 1 was dedicated to all of this plus tackling the age-old battle of what to charge and how to value your time and worth. This is a topic we’re super passionate about and feeling everyone’s energy shift from burning the candle from both ends to beaming with confidence and knowing things MUST change, was just one of the magical moments over the weekend.
Day 2 is all about Design and florals. We shared our approach to Event Design as well as a walk through our Design process from concept to creation. Florals are such a big part of our overall event design so Tim our Head Florist joined us for this session. Tim showed us how to make a larger feature arrangement and then everyone got their hands dirty by creating their own take home centrepiece. A delicious grazing lunch and more Q+A’s capped off the weekend and everyone went home with a new network of industry friends, a notebook full of tips/advice/processes and most importantly a new found confidence to propel them into 2019 and beyond.
We’re very honoured to host these workshops and are unapologetically candid in our storytelling and don’t held back when reliving the good, the bad and the ugly of what it takes to survive in this industry so come prepared to laugh, learn, cry and eat!
We can’t wait to host our next workshop and hope to see you there!
