The Wisdom of Morning Huddle

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Every week we have morning huddles led by a different team member to inspire us and welcome us to each new day. Monday’s bit of wisdom was shared by Dawn Mogardo, Account Manager at Corinthian Events. She shared the quote, “Either you run the day, or the day runs you!”

This quote was especially fitting because while it is a lot of fun to come back and see the team after a long Holiday weekend – being away from email for 4 whole days (well, mostly away from it) – can cause a bit of a backlog. And, getting organized for a new week can be daunting when we are playing catch-up.

What is our go to tip at Corinthian Events for getting organized?

Dawn shares – “LISTS!! I have a to do list on my desktop that I am constantly updating throughout the day to make sure I am on top of everything. Especially in events where there are so many details, it is sometimes a challenge to keep track of every small thing you need to take care of, so I make sure to write them down and I don’t take them off my list until they are done.”

Dawn isn’t alone in this…  Natalie Prentiss, Outreach & Marketing Coordinator at Corinthian Events agrees adding, “I make a list of everything I need to get done for the week. I organize my list by putting the most time sensitive projects at the top and always keeping great notes of my progress to ensure I don’t waste a moment finding my place.”

Shira Brandt, Program Assistant also uses lists sharing, “I make a to do list and take a step back to think about everything that needs to get done, prioritizing is really key and allowing myself to stay calm during it all – knowing that I will get it all finished helps me from letting the quantity of tasks impact that quality of my work.”

Talk about taking it up a notch – Erin Phinney, Account Manager, shares that she uses color coded lists, numerical lists, calendars, lists for my lists… “It’s the only way to keep things in check when life gets busy!”

Staying ahead can be a challenge in our fast-paced industry. Today’s wisdom?.. Use lists!


Congratulations Serenity and Rose Quartz!

Each year, the design, fashion, and beauty industries await to hear the color chosen for Pantone Color of the Year. Usually one color is chosen, but this year Pantone decided to change things up by picking TWO colors (I know, crazy right?), so say congratulations to Serenity and Rose Quartz! Pantone chose these two colors because they “demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.” The company also recognizes the blending of genders within both the fashion world and pop culture and feels that Serenity and Rose Quartz together reflect these cultural shifts.

Although these hues are typically used for baby showers, we have some creative ideas on how to incorporate them into all the events us event planners will be setting up throughout 2016.

Serenity and Rose quartz worked perfectly in flower arrangements we had at two of our events this year. The pastel color helps the bolder colors pop and ties together the whole table setting!

And what event would be complete without votives? Accent Decor offers these great looking votives that will spruce up any event.

Whether you’re using the colors together or separate, Rose Quartz and Serenity will give your table setting an classy, but calm vibe.

And if you don’t want the colors to be the focus of your table setting, they both work great as a pop of color with the place settings.

And if you happen to need something unique at your event? Add Rose Quartz pop rocks to drinks, make a Rose Quartz slushy, or pair a Rose Quartz colored drink with raspberries! They look amazing and taste even better.

We’re excited to see how these colors are used throughout all industries in the New Year!
