It’s hard to believe that a whole month has passed since October 2nd, and our Centennial Gala at St Bart’s, but now the dust has settled it’s really rather nice to be able to think about other things. I was part of a small organising committee putting on a truly epic event (at least, it felt that way to us!) and for a while there it was all-consuming.
One of the nicest things about working on big events is when it all comes together, people are evidently enjoying themselves, and you can sit back and think “wow, we did this”.
And toast your success with a glass or two, of course!
Even through the most stressful moments of the process, it was a pleasure and a privilege to work with such excellent and dedicated colleagues (and don’t we look great?!)
