30-day snapchat challenge – join me? (June 1-30, 2016)

By | meet the team, mentor POV | No Comments

Hello everyone, Mary here!

snapchat-day1-mbw

And so it begins…I’m doing a 30-day ‪#‎snapchat‬ challenge in the month of June, which basically means if you’ve been curious what my life in England looks like (as a CEO, mum, mentor, friend, laundry specialist, you name it) here’s your chance.

It’s time to jump onto snapchat.


WHAT IT IS:

a behind-the-scenes glimpse at what it takes to be a Simplifier. I’ll sprinkle in a ‘thought of the day’ or two, sharing tips that have helped me juggle it all. Plus, secrets on saving time, how I wrangle my stress/anxiety/fears (most times) and push forward towards greatness.

Try something new.


WHAT I PROMISE:

to keep it real, no funny filters on videos or perfectly crafted magazine-worthy staged photos (like what most ‪#‎eventprofs‬ get BOMBARDED with on a daily basis). Just me, a insider glimpse of my office and team, a slice of my city, Nottingham and what it like to be an event professional and (shhh!) an undercover superhero. 

Life is messy. But that’s okay…we are exactly right where we are supposed to be, in order to help each other.

This, I know is true.

Learn new things, peek behind-the-scenes.


Will you join me? https://www.snapchat.com/add/thesimplifiers

By | Millennials, working with interns | No Comments

Let’s face it, working with millennial interns can sometimes be pretty tricky if there’s a generational gap between you both.

Studies show, that generational gaps can cause conflict in the workplace, especially now that more and more millennials are joining the workforce than ever before, while a growing number of baby boomers are retiring later and later in life.

It can cause problems when you and your intern have differing attitudes towards many aspects of life and work.

BUT…when managed effectively, you can combine decades worth of wisdom with the tech-savvy skills that millennials can offer. Here’s how…
