You know that moment where an idea pops into your head and you get a crazy desire to do A, B, C, Y or all of the above? You know that moment where an idea pops into your head and you get a crazy desire to do A, B, C, Y or all of the above?
That happens to me on a daily basis.
Yet nothing quite like this desire.
As an event organiser, it’s always been my dream to be part of an event that’s major, worldwide, and life changing. What’s more major than an event that’s watched by millions around the world?
Enter stage: London 2012 Olympics.
Let’s face it, any event you’ve ever been to has not been tangible. There’s no way whatsoever (unless you vandalise – please don’t) that you can take a piece of that event with you. So it’s my honest belief that regardless of the size of your event, every single one should be an experience.
So my aim, no matter the role, is to help the organisers create not just “events” but experiences.
Introducing the project within a project – The 2012 recommendations project for what will be a stellar year!
To get 2012 recommendations from anyone and everyone to help my job application stand out and be successful.
If you think I’ve got the stamina, the experience and the attitude to deserve a role at the London 2012 Olympics then listen up!
Leave a short recommendation for the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games.
It can be as simple as:
“Give this girl a job!”
“Mariella has what it takes for the job”
“Please give Mariella a job so she can stop spamming the airwaves”
“Mariella for President” … no?
Write whatever you like.
The whatever it takes project – an honest, raw and (hopefully) entertaining view of the journey to get there. Updated as regularly as wireless internet is available.
You go in my mum’s good books
If you’re comfortable with me knowing where you live (I’ll be on the other side of the world, remember) a handwritten postcard from my travels around Europe.
But not a free piglet.
I’m not allowed to offer free piglets anymore, the RSPCA said so.
It’s over to you now, please help me get to 2012 by leaving a recommendation in the comments below.
Be honest, be open and I’ll get the pen ready.
In advance, thanks.
You’ll be the first to know how I go… after my mum, of course.
