Some of you may know by now that I am
pregnant. I’ve just come out of the first
trimester where I felt sick all the time. I
can honestly say that the moment I started
feeling better, I have never been more
grateful for a sense of wellbeing.
In the events industry, the odd hangover is
par for the course but it’s worth considering:
what exactly is it that’s making us sick? One
thing I’ve learnt over the past few months is
that it’s just as easy to wind up with a food
hangover. I am a perfect control group as I
haven’t touched a drop – not because I’m
especially puritanical, but because I can’t
stomach alcohol at the moment.
It’s made me pause to think: are we all
poisoning ourselves? What’s more, are
we poisoning our guests? Surely that’s
the opposite of hospitality. It’s one thing
to work to a budget; it’s another thing
to buy wine that is guaranteed to give
everyone a splitting headache. Same goes
for catering. Beyond all the dietaries,
shouldn’t we be looking to nourish our
guests and send them on their way with a
sense of wellness?
I attended the launch event of Smart
Sparrow, a new networking group,
in September this year. What stood
out about it was the catering. Angie
Cowan, caterer and author of Love
Life and Gluten Free, had put together
a completely gluten-free wholefoods
menu that was, quite simply, sublime.
The quality and style of the food set the
scene for the whole event. In the newly
created wellness section of the magazine,
we speak to Angie about her journey
from sickness to glowing health, and the
business that arose from that process.
This is also the incentive issue. While
many of us are on the delivery side of this
equation, you can’t argue that it’s a lot of
fun coming up with incentive programs
that will knock people’s socks off. We have
included loads of ideas for places to visit
and things to do in Australia and around
the world to cater to all sorts of budgets.
We also go behind the scenes at Sydney
Prop Specialists and meet Michael
Alameddine, a humble florist whose
commitment to excellence is turning a
neighbourhood shopfront into a mecca for
Wishing you well for the summer ahead
hope you enjoy the issue!
The joy of feeling well
