There’s a lot to be excited about working at The Grove, the most obvious being the stunning mansion set in beautiful surroundings. Event spaces flood with daylight and the grounds allow clients to captivate their delegates with an ever-changing itinerary. But the thing that excites me the most is the people. There is a genuine sense of positivity among the team who are incredibly friendly and attentive. There’s an understanding that you’re all there to serve the same purpose which is a great experience for the clients.
I was a roadie! I worked for a corporate show band and loved it. We travelled to some fantastic hotels and venues up and down the country and gained a wealth of experience. We regularly worked on large corporate celebrations and I caught the bug! At the same time I worked at a hotel with a fantastic General Manager who taught me lots and I took so much from it, service-level-wise, that I still work to today.
It’s not a speciality as such, but we can be incredibly flexible. We also pride ourselves in our attention to detail. We get a genuine kick from the little finishes and going above and beyond for clients.
Firstly, the advancement of technology. It’s at the heart of what we do and it’s come a long way in the last 10 years. How people present and wish to deliver their events has also changed massively. 10 years ago, events were generally very formal, but now, the focus has shifted to making sure the audience and presenters feel comfortable and relaxed.
Recently I’ve found that more clients want to spread out and make the most of nature and the great outdoors. Around 20% of our clients challenge us with creating them an outdoor/festival-like experience and we love it, it’s great fun!
As a company we’ve noticed that since the pandemic, hybrid events have become the norm – 50% of all our events are now produced with some sort of hybrid/streaming element. We’ve also noticed that more event companies are working on ways to become more sustainable as businesses. I’m proud to say that Beagle Create is on that journey, big time.
I’ve been so lucky to work on some awesome events over the years. I’ve worked on £1m events, I’ve been around Europe for clients, and I’ve produced events in Disneyland Florida and up mountains in Canada! In the future though, the dream would be to work on a more well-known event – something like the Olympics would be great. I would also love to look after some production at Glastonbury, just for the fun of it – but it would have to be during a horrendously wet year, just so I can say I’ve had the full festival experience!
More From Meet the team
As the reinvention of The Glasshouse nears completion, we had a chance to interview Leonie Bos, who created the fabulous illustration of the new conservatory extension! Read her stories about times such as living in a cold squat in Amsterdam, dressing her new-born baby in a ski suit! Thankfully, today’s a different story and we wish her so much success in her work.
The re-creation of The Glasshouse is nearly complete – we can almost hear the drum roll! We caught up with the interior designer behind it all, Martin Hulbert, who gave us some fascinating insights into how his vision for The Glasshouse came together.
At The Grove we understand how important it is to create a very special celebration for your child at this significant time in his or her life. To help, here are the questions that most families ask us when they start planning a Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah.
