What's Floating Around

What’s Floating Around Cloud 9? Week Commencing 17 July 2017


Welcome to another week and it remains crazy busy here at Cloud 9 Towers with various projects on the go including the National Acute Pain Symposium, The Fresh Creative Awards, Fresh Adventures, Warwickshire Food & Drink, the UK Awards Conference, the Nottingham Media Festival, which will include the Nottingham International Microfilm Festival, and a VR Awards and Expo.


This is in addition to our work for existing clients venue finding,  so as you can imagine, it’s a little frantic here to say the least, and for the first time in our history, we’ve put a halt to supplier appointments and despite having some lovely invitations, a stop to all fams and events.

With so much going on,  its incredibly easy to fall in to the trap of exclaiming “I am just so busy” every two minutes, but that in itself can be a negative rather than a positive, so instead, we’ve tried to adopt  a more productive approach to our somewhat manic schedule.

The word busy means actively engaged,  which to us doesn’t sound too bad at all, but if you add in the definition of not at leisure and not accessible it becomes less attractive, and we hate the phrases overloaded and swamped as well – so how is it best to describe our schedules at the moment – without appearing to have adopted a load of rubbish corporate speak?!

Rich and varied might be a viable option, if it weren’t for the fact that we are unlikely ever to make a fortune doing what we are doing, so abundant might work.

Engaged and wholehearted are also potential options but we like captivated less, as this  conjours up visions of us being chained to our desks, which in events is hardly the case!

There is of course the old adage that if you want something done, and done properly, ask a busy person –  so we guess we will settle for productive with a dash of dynamic and a pinch of excited!

Sounds like a cocktail we know and we could go on, but of course being so productive, dynamic and excited, we’re simply too busy to write more this week!

Have a great week!
