Today has been a very long and rewarding day. It started with me waking up at a good 4:30AM borderline terrified about our Live Sydney Workshop today, ‘The Profitable Marketing Forum’.
It was our last one for 2015 and I was only *slightly* freaking out. Not in terms that I would say stuff it up, but more in terms of the huge number of variables and things going through my mind.
From ensuring the email invites would go out, the awesome team is all set, people are going to turn up, the AV will work correctly, my PC won’t die, nothing will go bad and the like.
One thing I was comfortable in was the venue, Novotel Sydney Olympic Park. Martha Arifin and I have performed at many venues across Sydney and we have called this one our home in terms of events. The staff are wonderful, the rates are very fair, the parking is effective, it’s got a nice fit out and it’s just the right vibe for these types of events.
Olympic Park itself is a great location. It a part of town where everyone feels comfortable, it’s the right place for events and it’s place we have had an amazing track record of success at.
The Conferences Team does a great job and when you are running high risk / high reward events it’s critical to have a great venue. This takes out a lot of variables and what I love about Novotel is that it’s a great impressive brand that is still affordable. It’s a fantastic venue that is totally affordable and it has been very good to us.
My advice and thinking? A great event requires a great venue. Novotel is a fantastic brand of Hotels which I can highly recommend. No they aren’t paying me – I just think they rock!
Love your work, thank you for the read, check out Novotel Sydney Olympic Park & Stay Awesome!
