We are very pleased to kick off 2018 by announcing the promotions of Trevor Pirri and Anjelica Ong. They both have demonstrated exceptional professional growth, successfully led large projects for key clients and show us every day that they really love what they do! Anjelica has been promoted from Account Executive to Event Producer. Trevor has been promoted from Event Producer to Senior Event Producer. We love celebrating hard work, self-reflection, crushing goals, passion and drive! The whole team has embraced this celebratory opportunity to sip champagne and dance shamelessly to Britney Spears.
Event Planners are constantly on-the-go. Travelling is no doubt an exciting part of this career, but it can also be an overwhelming one. Sometimes you have to mentally pack so you spend as little time as possible actually doing it before or after work, with a 50% chance of forgetting a necessity like your toothbrush, comfiest shoes or portable charger. Never mind having time to research “things to do” or “where to eat” wherever you may be going. On the flip side, if you have time, you likely over pack as you dive into your what may seem, bottomless closet and think “I might wear this”, only to end up wearing 25% of what you packed and wishing you left room in your luggage to bring home new things.
YellowHouse Events is based in Toronto but the team can be found all over the world executing experiences for our amazing clients. From roadshows in NYC, Atlanta, Chicago and L.A., to rocking out in Nashville, to surfing the waves in Hawaii, some of us may go as far as to say we’re experts at packing. Just this past weekend, Trevor from the YellowHouse team made a quick trip to St. Lucia to ensure to test the waters and complete his research for an upcoming incentive program. Travelling for work encourages us to use our organizational skills and think strategically more than we already do. For instance, have you heard of creating an Excel spreadsheet to help you pack light and efficiently?
With all this being said, the YellowHouse team has compiled a list of our top tips and tricks and share this travel survival guide to get you ready for your next trip.
It’s been over 4 months since I’ve officially started my internship at Yellow House Events. With summer coming to a close, I think back to my first month and reflect on how exciting, challenging, overwhelming and enriching it has been, yet I still had 3 more unpredictable months to power through.
With such a jam-packed start, I assumed the remainder of my internship would be just as busy. What I didn’t consider was how many incredible opportunities I would get to be a part of and how much I would learn in such a short period of time.
