Hello. Welcome to the "summer" edition of our newsletter, which covers July and August...mostly because we forgot about July. Sorry.
So, what's been happening in the world of Colour;Noun these last few weeks? Well...
The show must go on...
July was a busy one for us - not just because conversations started to finally trickle in about future face-to-face events as England's covid restrictions eased - but because Vicky's life was consumed by the world of theatre.
Not content with doing two plays concurrently (totalling 12 shows) as well as countless rehearsals, techs and dress runs, Vicky dislocated her kneecap 5 days before curtain up and faced a hilariously long two weeks in a knee splint.
In amongst all of this, she wrote a blog about the mantra which saw her through (and which has ironically been the mantra of every affected events/theatre business in the last 18 months): "The Show Must Go On"...
Look, I made you some content
Whilst we might have been quiet during the last couple of weeks, the online world seems to have become more and more crowded. With things reopening and life becoming busier once more, LinkedIn in particular has become a hive of activity - for better or for worse.
Has our lack of in-person interaction and validation this past year and half meant that we're sharing more and more information on social media? And are we sharing too much?
Here's Howard's thoughts...
What's the future of the office?
Speaking of in-person interaction, remember when companies said it would be “impossible” for their people to work from home? Well, that seems a whole other world ago!
After 18 months of remote and home working for most of us, what does this mean for the future of the office? How has the pandemic, and the changes in human behaviour that have come about as a result, impacted its function, purpose and meaning?
Our latest blog takes a look at the questions we're asking and some things to consider.
So, in summary, the world's got a bit busy again, hasn't it?
The coming weeks are very exciting for us, as we finally get back into face-to-face events with actual real-life people after so long on Zoom. We're kicking off with two team days for an armed forces organisation, facilitating at a pharmaceutical company conference, running a session on fear in business for a professional association and then making go karts for a landscaping manufacturer's senior leadership day!
If you'd like to bounce around any ideas for your next event, get in touch!
See you next month...
