The Buzzword of 2019

The Buzzword of 2019

What is Strategy?

These are the big decisions that drive everything else — all your investments, hiring, development, timelines, etc. The big decisions that allow everyone to make cohesive plans and truly work toward the same objectives.

We have chosen to feature this as it relates entirely to driving our luxury market, specifically Digital Strategy, what is your business trying to achieve and how can data help you get there?

Some ideas of ours;
– Seeking a single ideal competitive position in an industry.
– Benchmarking and adopting best practices.
– Aggressive outsourcing and partnering to improve efficiencies.
– Focusing on a few key success factors, critical resources, and core competencies.
– Rapidly responding to ever-evolving competitive and market changes.

Over the last year this has been our hidden gem for company growth, whether it is for your personal brand, client representation or company goal, having a definitive end target implemented by a strong strategy increases your chances of the adverse effects of a tech takeover.

Knowing your clients and optimising their desires aids in tailoring specifically, smarter products and services that react to each user’s unique needs and habits.

Happy Strategising

Albeit an Ecommerce age, Retail Week still stands tall in the prolific ceremonies sponsored by Sales Force. A fully hosted evening of celebrations and entertainment for shortlisted retailers and their suppliers, followed by an after-show party celebrating recognition and finalists and to support their peers in the retail industry.

Some of this year’s winners were, Amazon claiming the The Hitachi Capital Consumer Choice Award, Beaverbrooks taking The Dell Technologies Best Place to Work award and Co-op winning The Hermes Global Impact Award.

The year ahead presents a challenging yet promising outlook for UK retail, this includes the rise of experiential retail, heavy discounting, the popularity of Insta-shopping, sustainability and of course, how the outcome of Brexit will affect retailers.

Luxury beyond limits

In a revolutionary era of tech and robotics we still find solace in the tangible consumer purchases, this being said, The Geneva Motor Show is booming with billionaire buyers. Few descend aboard their private jets to make swift purchases, others dwell over the Alpine spring air and book a week in Geneva for the consideration.

Luxury beyond limits, no messing around. The Corporate Angels team have spent two days at the show immersing themselves in everything metal enthused, the show is a raw presence of the most formidable and innovative companies in the industry.

If you are looking for a little family fun, interactive game stations and free keepsakes it certainly isn’t the show for you. Crisp white collars and Porsche branded brogues are the go to attire for the visiting public.

Even with perfectly positioned LED lighting, the cars hold their own and glisten in newness and dynamism.

Ultimately the show is a must visit for wealthy petrol head spenders and is crucial to attend for any luxury brand looking to capture an international audience.

With the CA team assisting over 50 different luxury events per year it is certainly in our viewpoint one of the best for B2B automotive sale events (one British client snapped up four cars in a mere few hours of visiting the show).

Happy 1st Birthday Annabel’s 

Happy 1st Birthday Annabel’s

Another day another star studded event, albeit in its infancy Annabel’s is considered the most affluent and challenging place to be.

The first birthday party started yesterday evening with the usual string of celebrity A lists and the first of many formidable acts, Wyclef Jean hit the stage and sung his most heart-wrenching lyrics, ( Killing Me Softly, Sweetest Girl and Ready or Not)

In true Mayfair style, this birthday party will last a month and feature some fun, crazy and exotic events.

None the less, we bask in our favourite spot in town and revel in watching the next chapter of the Annabel’s story unfold, building on its legacy as one of the best clubs in the world.

St Moritz

St Moritz – little discretion is needed when documenting such an affluent resort.

Located in the southern Alps of Switzerland, within the Engadine valley, St Moritz is the oldest winter sports resort in the world.

With a combination of five star mountain restaurants, high-altitude skiing and designer shops, not to mention the abundance of luxury chalets in St Moritz, it is no surprise that a variety of famous faces, Indian royals ( including the Ambani bash) and wealthy clientele are attracted to the resort.

From the Snow Polo World Cup and ‘White Turf’ horse racing, to the Gourmet Festival and the Engadin Snow Golf World Cup, St Moritz has a worldwide reputation for exceptional winter entertainment.

We stayed at the infamous Kulm Hotel which is centrally located and homed to the most spectacular spa and afternoon tea views. During our visit we focused on meeting clients from Lugano, Milan and Zurich and entertained in the most picturesque meeting spots.

Top recommendations are (which aren’t east to get, so reserve early and befriend your concierge)

  • King’s Club at Badrutt’s Palace – a wonderland of popcorn making, Michelin star food and exotic dancers.
  • CheCha – laden in Bogner and matching his n hers ski’s? CheCha is the lunch spot to be seen, live romantic renditions and the sweet smell of the local Kaiserschmarrn desert. With blazon sunshine and an Aperol spritz in hand, it is certainly a lunch spot not to be missed.
  • La Baracca – dance the night away and beware on the way out! Music, fun and deliciously hearty food, start early because it will be dawn before you leave. The ultimate small but hot spot!

The season is still young, we highly recommend St Moritz as the luxury winter spot

How to hire the perfect Luxury Brand Hostess?

 

Hiring the perfect hostess is a very difficult task at the best of times, especially when you are in the luxury sector. A Hostess is normally the first person your clients will see and therefore sets the tone for your company. To ensure you hire the perfect hostess then consider the following three tips:

 

  • Excellent common sense, this may seem a general point but common sense is vital for a hostess. There is no handbook for handling basic questions, aggravated customers and sometimes direct or frustrating comments. Common sense is so important so you know someone is responsible and can truly handle a general situation well, ways to spot this include asking what your hostess would do in certain situations in your place of work and see how they respond
  • Personality, when hiring its always key to focus on the culture before the qualifications. However, your brand is seen ensure your hostess obtains these characteristics and fits in with your team.
  • Clean presentation, being well groomed as a hostess is key to ensure you are neat and tidy at all times. To spot this we look if the ladies who have clean nails, neat hair and are dressed in smart fresh business wear. Presentation is key as statistics show around 63% of people judge one another firstly by looks. (Crazy but the small neat touched do matter)

Two things you must do at a yacht show!

 

Yacht shows are incredible, a key time of the year to enjoy the stunning rows of super yachts in the beautiful exotic sun. At Corporate Angels our personal favourite event is the Monaco Yacht Show, due in September! After attending over 20 global yacht shows we must say that we are pretty familiar with them! Now two things you must do when you attend…

 

  • The yacht shows almost always have incredible parties in the evening that are unmissable when you visit and when you are looking at yachts ensure to take note on the best yachts to visit in the evening. These are always invite only but when you work with great companies and clients a few invitations are inevitable
  • Camera Ready! Most Yacht shows have an incredible air show on the last day that is always spectacular be sure to make sure you never miss this. At Monaco Yacht Show the fighter jets once drew a heart in the sky, pretty impressive!
