Christmas and New Year feel like a distant memory now, little reminders dotted around the office; a cracker hat, a wilted poinsettia and oh yeah a couple of pounds I need to shift (who brought all that pre Christmas baking into the office? Oh yeah it was me).
There has been no time for January blues in the Prova offices, it’s been go go go – ease into the New Year? Oh no! There is no rest for the wicked. So, with three days under our slightly tighter belts, it’s Autosport International time.
In my role I don’t get out much, violins at the ready I hear? No, don’t feel sorry for me. As the office manager I spend most of my working life manning the helm of the good ship Prova. This week however, it was of one the first opportunities to ‘get out’, I was tasked with managing the remote Prova office at the Low Carbon Racing Conference (much more exciting than that first aid course I went on last time I went out of the office).
I take my hat off to my peers at the Motorsport Industry Association (MIA), they did a sterling job. The conference looked slick, the sponsor’s stands were manned and ready, the stage brilliantly lit and branded and most importantly the content of the conference was engaging and inspired.
Chris Aylett CEO of the MIA chaired the conference with the wit and charisma that could have him labelled as motorsport’s answer to Parkinson, far removed from a traditional’ I speak you listen’ conference of old (I come from a health and safety background – say no more). The delegates fed into the conference, which shaped the topical dialogue of the day, every person looked, dare I say, electrified (sorry couldn’t resist).
The conference resonated all of the feelings of a New Year – reflection of what has been, conception of what will be and pushing the limits of what is possible and producing innovative and exciting results – all good messages that I intend to take back to the office with me.
Working alongside my fabulous colleagues at Prova in the lead up to the show, it didn’t feel like hard work but a great opportunity to get involved in something that is definitely worth being part of, dust off the suit and help do Prova proud. Well done team.
Not wanting motorsport to take all of the limelight, the team can start to take a couple of deep breaths and then onto the next! With the Rushlight Cleantech event in London on 31st January and a logistics campaign in February we continue to keep up momentum and our fingers in our specialist pies (not obsessed with food honestly).
