BUILDING COMPANY CULTURE THROUGH EVENTS.
WHAT IS CULTURE.
COMPANY CULTURE = APPRECIATION x COMMUNITY
Company culture has become a real buzz word, but it can be broken down. Aside from the nuts and bolts of a job, people seek two things from their workplace:
Both of these are incredibly simple but also notoriously tricky to achieve on a genuine level. One way I have seen them authentically develop is through company events.
Too often company events are missed opportunities. Not enough thought and attention is put into planning them, and they end up being a last minute scramble. You should be proud of the events your company puts on for your team, but all too often they end up being that awkward endurance.
I focus on crafting boutique experiences to creatively showcase your company's culture and values. Making the most of those unique opportunities that offer so much potential value, but all too often are completely missed.
THE MISSION IS TO CREATE PRICELESS MOMENTS FOR BUSY TEAMS.
Growing up, lots of family life took place around our big wooden table that Dad had made. We'd spend hours there; eating, chatting, cooking, baking, reading, playing games, gathering people. Now, I love tables.
I've always loved hosting events. I've organised pop-up dinners, retreat weekends, parties, charity fundraisers, weddings, book clubs, drinks parties, club nights, amongst others. I stumbled into using events to build company culture when I was based in-house for a company and discovered the power of bringing teams together in fun, thoughtful and creative ways.
I am London based, and you'll find me cycling around Richmond Park at sunrise or sunset, wandering around New Covent Garden Market with a coffee in one hand getting over-excited about the flowers and plants, or buying fresh ingredients to go home and while away the hours in the kitchen before laying the table and lighting the candles to have friends over for dinner to help me eat the creations!
I'M PASSIONATE ABOUT COMPANIES HAVING FLOURISHING TEAMS.
I pride myself on spending money efficiently, thinking slightly outside of the box and paying attention to detail, in order to bring teams together well.
My goal is to see your team doing something they might not ordinarily do, and to give them a (success) story to tell whoever they live with when they get home that evening!
LET'S WORK TOGETHER.
Totally bespoke and a real partnership, I bring the headspace and ideas, normally with a wildcard option thrown in!
WHOLE COMPANY EVENT
There is power when you gather your people together in a creative and meaningful way. This is often best done around a celebration; a Christmas or summer party, work-birthday or yay-it's-Friday party,
or anything in between, I work with you make it that extra bit special.
REGULAR TEAM EVENTS
Your people probably spend their days in the same space, but building regular intentional time with each other is a great way to add depth to your team. I can help organise a monthly lunch, bi-monthly social, a quarterly breakfast for your team. Or help execute that idea you've had but hasn't quite happened yet.
COMPANY CULTURE AUDIT
I can help you identify how you can naturally make fun and creative improvements to the day-to-day life of your people. We all know the benefits of a happy workforce who feel appreciated and part of the wider work community. I'll spent time with you challenging how things might currently be, and suggesting ideas for you implement.
I calculate costs very simply based on how long it will take to organise and execute your event. So I can accommodate to suit your budget whatever that may be.
DON'T JUST TAKE MY WORD FOR IT.
