Our newest member of the team, Sara, reflects on our 2018 evening seminar on Thursday 15th November 2018.
Now that a few weeks have passed it is a great time to recap on our most recent evening seminar, To Gin or Not To Gin. For this particular seminar, we went down the more social route rather than business – but not too far. With weeks of planning, organising, and the use of our contact list, the evening was a massive hit!
Ally Hardy, our gin expert from Craft56 made the evening fun, interesting, and full of knowledge. Ally told us about his experiences of being an entrepreneur in the gin industry, and he spent some time to show our guests some simple ways of making gin that little bit more exciting for the taste buds.
The evening began with each attendee being greeted and allowing some informal networking to take place (which was a great opportunity for me to get to know some of our clients and business contacts). Once everyone had arrived, we thought it would be beneficial to play the new Gravitate HR promotional video as a way of getting feedback and potentially some tips for changes in the future. Doing so was definitely a good talking point as everyone had a good giggle as well as providing some positive feedback.
Neil then introduced Ally who shared his story of starting his business as well as some of the back stories as to how the gins provided were created. Ally’s anecdotes ranged from a distillery in a living room cupboard, to a unique creation for a bride’s something blue.
It was another successful evening seminar and it was great to meet everyone. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves and you can keep an eye on our website Events page for seminars in 2019.
