The fact that we’ve now exchanged contracts on the land on Kaitoke Loop Road and told the vendor of the other land to take a hike the whole domestic executive thing is becoming more real. Put together with another week passing in a flash I can see that time is going to motor on in the next year.
This week really has been party time and I’m not sure that I can be the party girl now, at least not for several nights in the row. It’s been full on at work with event after event culminating in the staff Christmas party where over 500 people boogied away to the staff band.
It was a fabulous occasion with a good atmosphere which made the earlier escapade this week a dim memory. On Wednesday we only had sold 150 tickets out of a potential of 2500 people on national office campus. I had to get my folks to down tools and don santa hats, reindeer antlers and other Christmas paraphenalia and walk the floors twisting every arm to buy tickets.
Fortuantly the sales drive worked in the end although I was still pretty pessimistic part way through the day when my guys were returning to the office having only sold one or two each. Word must have got round or we just started to hit the party animal floors because all of a sudden sellers were returning (after being missing for hours) with sales of 50, 70 and finally 90.
All in all it was a fantastic team effort and the communications team came to the rescue. It was touch and go with the boss who was threatening to cancel if we didn’t get numbers above 400. All’s well that ends well. And, at least I won’t have this worry next year!
