In this second post about Potting Shed Events I wanted to explore the beliefs that we hold true as a team. These beliefs are integral to our business and I hope that both clients and suppliers are able to recognise these in their workings with us. Our five beliefs are:
~ We believe team work makes the dream work – slightly cheesy but very true
~ We chose to have fun and enjoy our work
~ We promote equality in all aspects
~ We believe in fair remuneration for all
~ We are mindful of our impact on the world
They are all deliberately self-explanatory but the one I wanted to pick out was ‘we choose to have fun and enjoy our work’. I believe that we are incredibly lucky to work in this industry. We are often spoken about as one of the most stressful industries in which to work – and that is often true – however, we also get to experience some wonderful moments, we get to know a diverse and interesting client base, we get to work in incredible countries and locations (many of which I would be completely unaware of without the job I do) and we get to work with our industry colleagues who continue to inspire and motivate with their creativity, resilience and sense of humour (most of them!). So, all in all we need to remind ourselves to choose to embrace the madness and have fun along the way. Positivity and enthusiasm will see you a long way through a stressful event and, with the right team around you, it is possible to enjoy every single day. What do you enjoy most about events?
