So last week- I participated in "An Evening With Preston Bailey and Friends" at the incredible and awesome NYC studio of the one and only, floral designer extraordinaire, Preston Bailey. To say it was incredible is just a bit of an understatement.We had our coats taken, and were greeted at the elevator with champagne (my FAVORITE), and we had the tastiest treats. Then we got to experience an inspiring talk with Preston and his team, and an inside look at how he does what he does. The most striking thing about the talk: Preston said that he looked at all of our entries, and checked out our websites before making his choices. He said that the room was full of talent and potential. We had a Q&A session, and headed downstairs to view some gorgeous sample installations. Then we headed back upstairs for dessert and to receive an amazing gift- an autographed copy of his new book One thing I know for sure - Preston knows his market, he knows his business and he knows how to bring the "wow" factor.
This is one career experience that I will remember for the rest of my life, and that I am pretty sure has changed the course of my business. And for that, I am incredibly grateful.
