Back to the future

Anyone else getting the feeling of déjà vu?  Clinton is running for President, the Crystal Maze is on TV, Bross are touring and puffa jackets are back. It’s the 90’s! But it’s not. It’s 20 years into the future, but it seems not a lot has changed. Or has it changed so much that we’ve... tell me more

Minor (Corporate Social) Responsibility

As Christmas approaches, and individuals cram on to Oxford Street to make the most of the Black Friday sales, the corporate world turns its mind to charities which could benefit from corporate social responsibility programmes. BEYOND is (loud and) clear about where we are sending our donation this year – to the St Mary’s More... tell me more

What a difference a day with FAMILY makes

Whenever someone asks me what I do, the shortest answer is “corporate events”.  Our market has always been corporate.  Admittedly on our first flagship event we worked with Save the Children, producing official hospitality for a flamenco show at the Royal Albert Hall.  Despite a further smattering of charity and private events, the vast majority... tell me more

Be like Bowie

It’s my first day back from maternity leave today (this is Alice speaking), having left last year after a mammoth event which took me up to the wire on my due date. I thought that event was the pinnacle of logistics, creativity and multi-tasking – then came motherhood!   With my return to work approaching... tell me more

New year resolutions – goals or limitations?

Ah, January, the time of year for new beginnings, quitting bad habits and tax returns. Whether you make resolutions or not, there’s no escaping the bombardment of the latest health fads, gym membership special offers, self help programmes, new hobbies and a collective desire to be the best versions of ourselves we can be. And... tell me more

DIY events

We have just had the best DIY Christmas gift ever to land on our doorstep. Forget Black & Decker, think instead of smooth dark chocolate brownies, home-made. But what makes it so much fun is that we do it ourselves – these are not little perfect squares served in a box, these are layers of... tell me more

Time for change

For a while now, we have been re-evaluating how we want to be perceived, meaning it is time to overhaul the website. Without really realising it, our website had become tired and out of date, so we brainstormed with the tech-sperts on how we want you to see us and how we get across what... tell me more

Have a nice day!

I’m on a plane and it’s a very bumpy ride to the USA.  I’ve just been told by the hostess to imagine the turbulence as just like the experience of a speedboat racing over water.  Unlucky for me, should we hit a ‘wave’ and crash my flying (without wings) isn’t quite up to the standard... tell me more

Ladies who (don’t) lunch

It was International Women’s Day today and my colleague and I headed off to Grosvenor Square for an event hosted by recruitment giant, Angela Mortimer. The event was in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer, a cause close to so many hearts, including my own. It was a ladies only lunch for ladies who….don’t lunch. There... tell me more

Eau de Nil

Sometimes our job really isn’t a job. Supping cocktails at Mr Foggs while listening to the tales of an explorer fresh from his travels through Africa can’t truly be classed as hard work. But it’s all in the name of research for one of our latest briefs, and hey, someone’s got to do the dirty... tell me more
