I travel a LOT. Both to manage client events and for fun. And in this nomadic lifestyle, I’ve come up with a packing list that does it all. It gives me the supplies I need to stay healthy, energetic and calm when working events and taking what are usually hyperactive vacations.
As a person with dyslexia, I’ve always found it funny—and frustrating—that the word “dyslexic” is so hard to spell! Whoever comes up with medical terminology should have consulted with someone who deals with it everyday…
Managing events in far-off locations means long, hectic hours. So when I’m on the road, I work to find ways to fully enjoy the scarce downtime I get. One of my favourites: a leisurely meal in a destination restaurant that I haven’t tried. I’m a foodie and love to explore new places.
It’s hard to believe. It was just one year ago that I ventured into the world of entrepreneurism and launched C.KAY International to produce private and corporate events all over the globe. What a wonderful, gratifying, topsy-turvy year it’s been!
