Blog Spotlight - Engaging Faces Events & Teambuilding
Time for another edition of Blog Spotlight, where we ask the questions you want to know the answers to!
This week it's the wonderful Emma Hodgson from Engaging Faces Events & Teambuilding.
Company Name: Engaging Faces Events & Teambuilding
How did Engaging Faces Events & Teambuilding come about?
After many years of working in the entertainment and events business my partner decided that it was time to try this for ourselves, so we joined forces with Nick bringing industry knowledge, event management experience and contacts together my experience of project management, sales and very much needed organisational skills!
What sets Engaging Faces apart from your competitors?
We believe that it is our personal touch that sets us apart from our competitors. This is our business so we have to make it work, the one thing that we know our competitors don't have is us, our passion, our desire to get things absolutely perfect and our personal touch. We know where to add value to our service and always do wherever we possibly can. We also strive to offer value for money to all our clients, both big or small.
Best thing about the job?
Well there are a few 'best things'. The first is the sense of complete job satisfaction that we get from delivering an event and seeing with our own eyes the delight, gratefulness and relief that a client has at the moment they realise that their event is in safe hands with us. It's quite thrilling to work with a client on an event from the conceptual stage right through to the delivery and this applies to all our events, from small intimate weddings to themed balls for 500 people. Another best thing for us are the little perks that we are offered from time to time, for example overnight stays in spas or attending some of the functions - gives us time to wind down.
Do you have a specialist area?
Nick's background is in acting and stage management so this means that our events quite often have a 'theatrical' element to them, whether it be performers, staging or Comperes. Our other specialist area would be teambuilding - our experienced Event Managers and Instructors recognise that effective teambuilding is essential to assisting companies in developing their business and also to ensure that employees appreciate their own strengths and the strengths of their colleagues.
Who/what are your influences?
We really just aspire to being the very best that we can at what we do and that is what drives us. I wouldn't say that we are particularly influenced by anything, other than our clients. We aim to get an understanding of what they want from an event, and then support them creatively to achieve their ideals.
