Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow. Anthony J. D’Angelo
We have a boat load of experience in our office… just the partners alone have over 50 years of combined experience in Special Events and Destination Management. If you add up our various team members we have at least another 100 years of experience in planning… that lends well to experience sharing among our team and learning from each other.
Yet, even with all the knowledge in the office – we work to expand our learning whenever an interesting occasion arises.
Recently, part of our team headed out to Dallas, TX for a Peer Exchange developed by Global DMC Partners. Corinthian Events is a proud member of Global DMC Partners which is a global network of hand-picked Destination Management Companies.
At the conference we shared with our peers what makes us who we are… in the form of a Recipe.
Creating this recipe was a lot of fun. The “Core Recipe” is based on our “Core Values” in the office:
- Love It
- Do the Right Thing
- Play Nice
- Own It
- Be Smart
We then have added “spices” including:
- Splash of Wine
- Pinch of Humor
- Dash of Sass
- Shot of Attitude
- Dose of Reality
Elizabeth and Tamara’s favorite spice? A dose of reality!
When there are local opportunities for growth we jump in as well…
MPI New England (Meeting Professionals International) hosted a storytelling event which captivated our curiosity and led us to the edge of our seats to relive challenging experiences from “the front lines of event planning.”
Steve Kolander moderated the event, held at Courtyard Boston Downtown, which included 3 event planners’ most emotionally trying experiences as planners from working in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon Bombing to getting fired from a major job. Hearing their stories and connecting with their passion inspired us to discuss, at our weekly meeting, the power of losing the PowerPoint and using emotion to convey ideas.
Learning opportunities in the office happen pretty much every day as well. We start most mornings by meeting as a team in a huddle for a quote and share session. Each week a different person leads the huddle. One of our newest team members, Cody, led the huddle last week. His last quote of the week- “ It’s kinda fun to do the impossible,” by Walt Disney. Right on!
Success can’t be sustained without continued learning. With all the tools we have in our box it would be easier to sit back and relax but that isn’t the Corinthian way! We committed to honing our skills, sharing our experience and continuing to grow!
