Happy Thanksgiving from The Event Team!

Working in the fast-paced, deadline-driven hospitality industry, one can easily get caught up in the specific details of each project or event and lose sight of the bigger picture. At The Event Team, we’re happy to take a moment to zoom out and reflect on the many reasons we are grateful, both personally and professionally. Spread the gratitude! What are you thankful for?

Professional: I am thankful to have a boss that is understanding when family needs to come first and believes in me and my abilities more than I believe in myself.”
Paige Weeber, VP of Operations

“Personal: I’m thankful for all the wonderful, positive people I have in my life. It’s amazing to have such a great support system! Professional: I’m thankful for the opportunity to be part of such an awesome, talented team. I love what I do and I’m so lucky to be doing it with people I love to work with – how can I complain?”

“I am thankful for my family, friends, good health, my doggies, and my amazing job and co-workers.”
Katie Bowen, Design and Sales Coordinator

“Personal: I’m thankful for all the opportunities that I have had lately, especially meeting some new friends this year who have changed my life. Professional: I’m thankful that I share an office with someone who shares my sarcastic sense of humor. The looks and the inside jokes make me appreciate having a job just that much more when many people are still looking for jobs.”
Jessica Ingalls, Operations Manager

“Personal: I am grateful for the joy and love of my family and friends who keep me laughing and smiling. Professional: I am grateful to be part of a team who always has my back.”
Danny Fisk, General Manager Los Angeles

“Personal: I am so grateful for basic things we all take for granted every day like health, food, and shelter, but I am also grateful for words, music, unconditional love from my friends, family, and partner, as well as the ability to find strength in weakness and peace in grief.  Professional: There is so much more than six years of paychecks to be thankful for at The Event Team. A supportive boss, fantastic co-workers, a creative job description, and the flexibility to pursue outside passions. What more could I ask for? Maybe a Grammy.”
Lindsay White, Director of Marketing

“I’m thankful that I get to work with this great team of colleagues – our team is tops!”
Dick Burson, National Sales Manager

“Personal: I’m grateful for the friends that make me laugh, those acquaintances that inspire me, and my parents for always being a positive influence in my pursuit of my passions. And wine. I’m thankful for wine. Professional: I’m thankful I get to be my weird sarcastic self every day when I walk in the office and that even if I make a mistake (which is never) I am surrounded by people who support and believe in me.”
Rachel Horgan, Sales Manager
