So, how then did Olive + Blossom come about, and why did it take me so long to get here?
Well, truth be told it took me a while to feel like I’d built up enough experience and learnt all the requisite skills needed to pass on my knowledge and support others in their personal goals and business objectives.
Through the team building days I now run I’m able to help teams deal with collaboration and conflict issues, develop communication and leadership skills, or even just add a little calm to a team with a session focused on mindfulness. All the while getting to impart a healthy dose of floristry knowledge in each session.
Our goal is to help teams overcome whatever challenge is holding them back, while allowing time for fun, the chance to learn a new skill, and enjoy a shared experience which brings the team together.
It’s been a long journey to get here, but it feels like we’ve only just begun. My advice to anyone starting out would be to keep playing and be confident in your own ability.
(Ps if I had to be pushed I would say my favourite flowers have to be sweet peas, so fragrant and delicate and always evoking childhood memories).If you’d like to know more about what we do, please say hello! Either email firstname.lastname@example.org or check out our Facebook and Instagram.
