The story behind ‘The Importance of Celebration’ event.
It started out as a journal entry…
I’ve kept a diary for years, and one day I started musing about how rubbish I felt about not celebrating my professional and personal achievements, and why I owe it to myself to take time and celebrate beyond ‘treating myself’ to a cup of tea.
I decided to type up the journal entry, and sent it as an article titled ‘The Importance of Celebration’ to ‘Women in Research’ (or WIRe) – a fantastic organization that runs events worldwide that supports females in the market research industry.
I knew the organisers at WIRe well, and asked them if they’d like to publish the article; I hoped it might inspire their readers.
Not only did WIRe publish the article, but they wanted to make an entire evening workshop event out of it!
I was thrilled, and before I knew it, the event was happening in London. My first ‘Importance of Celebration event’ was fully-booked, with standing-room-only. I was over-the-moon to see a heaving room!
The event was part storytelling and part activity-lead. I read out my article, to many laughs and some tears, and then together in groups we pursued a number of questions and activities around celebration; what holds us back?
What achievements do we want to celebrate next?
How can we celebrate each other as women?
How can we support each other?
Unbeknownst to me at the time, a member of the well-known Lean In organization, Jo Mercier, was at the WIRe event, and listening.
Inspired by the workshop, Jo and the Lean In team then booked me to run the same event online a few weeks later.
I said yes, and then the Importance of Celebration event became official!
In both the WIRe and Lean In events, women laughed and cried as they shared and supported one another. I saw them connect, and leave inspired and hopeful.
It was a privilege to lead these events.
Now, I continue to provide this event with a variety of businesses to empower their female employees, students, and communities.
