I am teaming up with some amazing people in Cape Town, South Africa at an organization called HUDDLEMIND LABS on April 3rd, to feature our product at one of their events. Jon Foster-Pedley will be starting with a talk on Creativity, where we will then launch into the MMA PARTY IN A BOX, to be followed by a debrief by Jon.
I also met with Jonathan Cherry of Cherry Flava. How exciting!
I think there are some real synergies here too.
In describing Jon’s work, he explained it’s nature involves challenging people’s perceptions & comfort zones. I think this is exactly what Messy Monkey does as well, with a suspected predicted outcome and best intention of a surprised delight at the end of the day. And, they do not just put on “events”. No – they create experiences. Yes. Experiential events. Yes. I have always hesitated to call myself an “event planner”, because I knew it was so much more than that. EXPERIENTIAL EVENTS. This is what we do.
They also believe everyone has that kid inside them in there.
Yes, yes, yes.
I like South Africa! It feels like such fertile ground to me.
Can’t wait to make some magic with Cherry Flava!
