My Favourite Project – Senior Executives Overseas Meeting
April 26, 2021
One of my favourite events since joining destin8 came right at the start of my time here. I had been with the company for around 2 ½ months getting to grips with our products and services and learning the ropes so to speak. Then, unfortunately, one of our project managers became unable to travel so I was asked to step in.
To say I was a little nervous was an understatement, I knew this was a high-profile project with one of our long standing clients. On top of that this was a corporate meeting for senior executives and overseas in Palm Beach, none the less. But my excitement to show I could deliver a successful corporate event overcame the nervousness and I jumped at the chance.
After getting up to speed with the full itinerary, I packed my suitcase and set off to sunny Florida.
Upon arrival at the beautiful 5* Eau Palm Beach Hotel, I met with the client and luckily, we immediately hit it off. Being a senior project manager, I am very meticulous in planning, have an eye for detail and a foresight for any eventualities that may arise. Just what the client expected!
As the delegates started to arrive late afternoon, I was ready to greet them. We had worked with the client in the planning of the event and designed the conference packs which provided the attendees with the details needed for the 3 days ahead.
There were lots of elements to the event from organising individual luxury transfers, various categories of hotel room allocation, delicious bespoke macaroon room gifts, a cocktail reception, corporate meeting over two days, and a dinner at the National Croquet Centre which was the highlight of the event for me.
The event went off without a hitch and I was delighted when the client sent a thank you note over to our director. I was so pleased I was able to step in at the last minute and get my career with destin8 off to a fantastic start. I cannot wait until we are back out there delivering corporate events in person once again.
