A Quick Guide to Choosing a Venue for Your Office Christmas Party

Planning an office Christmas party can be a daunting concept, with a lot of responsibility falling on your shoulders if you’re the unlucky one chosen to organise it.

It can be especially difficult if you’ve got no previous experience of event planning, as there’s a lot to take into consideration, with perhaps the most important thing being choosing a venue.

To ensure that everything runs smoothly and that even the Scrooge of the office is up there singing along to Fairytale of New York, here are some top tips for choosing your Christmas party venue.

Start Early
There’s nothing worse than being the person who starts pestering everyone about the Christmas party before the clocks have even gone back, but unfortunately people are planning Christmas earlier and earlier, which means that the good venues get booked up a lot sooner than you might think.

Even though people might not want to think about Christmas so early, try to get a good idea for what kind of numbers you’re expecting as soon as possible. Not only will you have a much wider range of venues available to you, you’ll also get a better deal the earlier you book.

In fact, this post from NEC Group suggests you should even look at booking your venue as early as summer.

Location is Key
While getting a beautiful venue which can fit all of your guests is important, the location should probably be the most important thing.

It’s easy to get caught up in things and think you’ve found the perfect venue, only to realise nobody can actually get there.

If your venue is going to be a fair way from where everybody lives, then make sure that taxis or public transport are easily accessible. You don’t want to be having to shell out company money to ferry everyone to and from the venue if you can avoid it.

Keep Your Options Open
It’s always a good idea to identify a few different options, in case something goes wrong or your preferred choice gets fully booked up.

Once you’ve drawn up a shortlist, try to visit as many of them as you can. Nothing beats seeing a venue in person and there can often be issues which only present themselves in person.

It’s also a good chance to get to know the events team at the venue who will be invaluable in helping you reach a decision (and you might even be able to snag a better deal!)

Check the Food Options
Different venues will all have their own food menus (some may not even offer food at all), so make sure that they’re going to be able to cater to your needs before making a choice.

If you’re on a tighter budget, you might just want snacks and nibbles, but if you’re after a proper hearty Christmas dinner, you’ll want to head to a fully catered venue or a restaurant.

According to Bella Cosa, an Italian restaurant in Canary Wharf, many office parties are overlooking the traditional Christmas dinner in favour of varied menus such as Italian, Sushi or Chinese, seeing as most people will be having a traditional dinner with their families on Christmas Day anyway.

Of course, the venue is only a starting point and there’s a lot more to consider, such as the seating plan, entertainment, decorations and such, so check out this really helpful step by step guide from Event Juice. Just make sure you get that venue sorted as soon as possible!

Make positive changes in your life and let the success knock on your door

Live away from mediocre and ordinary

Success is considerably the most important aspect of our personal and professional lives. Success comes to people who separate themselves from the mediocre and ordinary. In other words, successful people live differently than the non-successful people. What makes them different from the rest is the unique lifestyle they use to shape their career or business, and personal lives. Nonetheless, people can learn to become successful irrespective of one’s age, education, cultural background, to name a few. One can determinedly overcome his or her failures and misses in life and become successful.

Road to success
Road to success is never laid with roses. It can be thorny, punishing, and downright discouraging. Irrespective of all the negatives, one should start the journey to personal success with internal changes. When a person is able to change inner self, he or she has successfully arrived on the scene to rub shoulders with successful people. Further, the inner changes mostly related to anger, jealousy, pettiness, and greed, for example, on one hand. On the other hand, social anxiety, low self-confidence and self-image, to name a few.

Do not blame others for personal failures
We must identify our weaknesses and start to address them one after other immediately. The more we delay our inner transformation, farther the personal success seems to exist. Naturally, one cannot blame our parents, family, society, or world in general for our failures. We are responsible for our own success, nobody else will make us successful unless we are willing to change self first and help others with open mind and heart. When we change self, we see the world changing around us. The beauty lies in our minds.

Measuring success
Moreover, people measures success in different ways. Again, it depends on one life’s experience, education, and mental outlook. For some, creating wealth is success. For other, reaching a powerful position is an indication of success. On the other hand, some people may think scaling the Mount Everest is the pinnacle of their success. Everyone defines success differently. There is no standard for defining success. Each will perceive success differently. Nonetheless, everyone values his or her need for success greater than anyone’s success.
Do not let jealousy ruin your chance
Unfortunately, many people feel jealous of other people’s success. On the contrary, one must feel happy and make that success as a reference point to achieve one’s own success. In other words, one must learn from other’s mistakes and lessons on the road to the success. It becomes much easier when we have examples of success around us. We cannot achieve success when we see only failures around us. It is ironical that many people wish others failed while they gain. This mentality will pull everyone down.
We all must learn to live successful and let others live successfully too. When we develop this broad mind, we get all the support we need to make our life’s journey not only pleasant, but also happy.
Do not wait a lucky break or godfather to help you to make it big in your career or business. The onus of success is on each one of us and none else. Our inner transformation determines our success or failures. Make positive and permanent changes in your life and let the success knock on your door.

MUSIC LAW SEMINAR: Advice & Tips from The Music Law Seminar, London

On Saturday 23rd September we attended the Music Law Seminar in London, an event held by Abi Jenae, Fully Qualified Solicitor and the CEO of Afro Town Records, an independent record label based in the UK specialising in Afrobeats and African-Inspired Music, an event created in Partnership with Wired4Music.

The Music Law Seminar was a free entry event attracting a mixed audience of artists, managers, lawyers, accountants, music entrepreneurs and the likes, seeking to find out more about the music industry and music law specifically. 

The event took place at the prestigious Wigmore Hall in Central London and came to be a completely SOLD OUT seminar, filled to the brim with creative and motivated individuals and collectives seeking vital advice and information from the various panels and speakers that were set up to impart their wisdom and knowledge to their audience.

Panel members and speakers at the event included Abi Jenae alongside her industry friends and associates, including Ian Penman of New Media Law LP, Ryan J Bruce of Sanaa Music Group, Ally McCrae of Sentric Music, Daniel Lewis of FreckleFace Music, Ebony Reid of Peer Music, Dorothea Thompson of Bray & Krais Solicitors and Ally Carballal of Chloe Digital and more!

Today at She Inspired Her we focus in on and bring you some of the best advice and tips picked up by Crystal King UK at the seminar... be ready to take notes!

The event kicked off with an interview with the event's host and organiser Abi Jenae, interviewed by Funmi. Abi humbly approached the subject of internships, speaking of her her own experience of "unpaid work of this kind" having previously interned at music collective "Boy Better Know" as well as having had law related internship placements too. Abi exclaimed "because I enjoyed what I was learning I didn't mind not getting paid". 
She went on to express that these internships were a very valuable part of her journey to success in terms of the skills, knowledge, connections and experiences that she acquired during said internships. 

Abi's overall summary of internships seemed to be that they can be a great place to start and to get your foot in the door. So remember, taking on an internship with the right company is something not to be overlooked so far as it's value, even though they are unpaid, internships can be a great step in the right direction, if you choose the right placements.

Later on in the event, on the issue of artist, writer and producer splits and percentages, audience members wanted to know the best way to get this sorted out, without getting in the way of the music. Abi suggested "...have split sheets in the sessions to deal with it there and then". Although, contracts can be a drag to go though and possibly a little daunting for some to bring up and speak about , this is a great way to get the initial basic paper work out of the way and to move forward and focus on the music! The longer contracts can come later but at least start by agreeing your terms and splits if you can! Abi added "always seek legal advice before signing any contracts". It is always advisable to seek legal counsel before proceeding with the signing of any contractual agreement, long or short and to have the terms looked over and explained to you by a professional to ensure that you know what it is that you are signing.

During the seminar Abi gave the following list of recommendations of groups and unions for artists to check out:

Urban development is good for artists. Networking. 
The featured artist coalition
Musicians Union 

Some great pointers above from Abi Jenae wouldn't you agree?
The event moved forward to present THREE panels of speakers! 
1. The Music Recording Panel
2. The Music PublishingPanel
3. The Music Management Panel

Make sure you check back soon to receive the great wealth of advice and tips that we managed to extract from the awesome speakers on the three above panels! You won't want to miss it!
