It was getting to a stage of all work and no play making Kennedy a tired mindreader. Being a full time corporate entertainer will do that to you.
So we’re on Kefalonia (one of the Greek islands) for a week. It’s total r&r and we’re loving it.
What Does It Mean For You?
If there is one thing I’m obsessed with more than anything else, it’s making sure that everything is taken care of.
So if you call or email my office this week while I’m away, you’ll still get an answer. Nicola, my assistant is still in the office handling all enquiries, the phones are getting answered and everything is working exactly the way they would if I was at home.
This is a great advantage I have by employing staff. I can be away from home, out of the country, whether that be working or on ‘vacation’ and you still get the amazing customer service you deserve.
Many entertainers I know employ members of their families, such as their wives and girlfriends to deal with their ‘office stuff’. What’s the fun in that? That means when they go on holiday together their customers are left with unanswered questions, calls not getting returned and without replies to emails.
To me, that doesn’t cut it and you deserve more when hiring an entertainer for your event. It’s important. That’s why I think I’m probably the only entertainer who employs 2 Personal Assistants. This week I’m on holiday with Lauren, and one of my assistants Angela is on holiday with her family. Nicola is handling calls, replying to emails, answering your questions and taking the bookings.
This is just one of the major differences when you hire a professional entertainer like myself. The phone always gets answered, emails replied to and there’s always someone here to help out.
Whoever you hire, save yourself a load of worry and ask how they have these things covered. Do they have staff on hand?
I hope this helps save you some headaches for events in the future.
