What I learnt in a year

Another year down in the event game for me, and another year of learning and development in an industry I have grown to love. 

  • I’ve learnt how to pull an event out of a hat, without compromising on the creative execution, or event experience.
  • I have stood in awe as the team worked with Big Concerts to make the magic happen when Rodriguez and Roxette came to town. 
  • I have watched our crew take down 56 speakers from 34 metres up, weighing 70kg each, tested each speaker, and fixed those needing attention, and rigged them up again in 22 days for the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium
  • I have learnt about 3D projection mapping and how it can be a feast for the senses
  • Time spent with those in houses of worship and schools who look after the AV and tech and discovered their challenges
  • And understand set design and how it elevates an event so much more

I attend and present at many events, and each time I notice the difference between an ordinary and an extra-ordinary event. Sometimes it’s a subtle difference, other times it’s something I know that happens behind the scenes that someone not ‘in the know’ would notice. As they say, “the devil is in the detail” and it’s the detail that elevates an audience or guest’s event experience.

Every day continues to be a learning experience as I watch our team of experts in awe and admiration.
