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!

 

To join any of the shows don’t forget to contact the Angels when buying a yacht we can plan your whole schedule at the show or have our CA Hostesses assist your luxury event!

The World Economic Forum – Davos

 

As the most enviable week of the year descends upon us, in contrary to last year’s topic of Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World, the leaders of Davos are discussing the impact of Globalisation.

In our world of incessant spending and manifesting materialism, I wanted to note a few topics and the harsh impact impeding.

 

Surviving mass adoption- #BlockBaseDavos

The most important issue which has arisen for the success of blockchain and the digital payment system.

Being a decentralized and an open-sourced ecosystem gives value in contribution with potential partnerships and leverage of a bigger pool of talent and community. Some governing bodies, institutions and infrastructures have positioned themselves to create products that have a better chance of mass adoption, however, in contrary some deep rooted democratic leaders fundamentally lack in identifying leaks in its business model and taking early action.

 

SEforALL

Electricity is more readablily available than ever, or so it seems, the annual investment in 2015 and 2016 was valued at $8bn per year, was injected into grid-connected fossil fuel plants, wind power, and solar photovoltaics. However, connection to the grid is just the beginning, without a sizeable addition of reliable generation capacity, we are still facing complete disproportion, in specific to those located in sub-Saharan Africa.

 

Mental Health 4.0

The global momentum around mental health offers exciting opportunities, but it also needs to be properly harnessed, as estimated by 2030, the cost to the global economy of all mental health problems could amount to $16 trillion.

Some issues fuelling the crisis are: few commercial incentives for the pharmaceutical industry and inadequate and out dated medical interventions. At the highest levels of government, private sector and civil society, leaders are stepping up to commit to promoting positive dialogues around mental health.

Both anxiety disorders and depression trump the pack in health issues that are falling short of the systems that have not yet adequately responded to the burden of the mental disorders.

 

These are a mere few topics discussed at the Forum, Corporate Angels are in attendance for all four days and will keep abreast of all discussions, we have all faith in 2019’s transformational impacts of new technologies and data.

The Do’s and Don’ts on a Superyacht

Corporate Angels attend many incredible Superyacht events, including events at Southampton, Cannes and of course the stunning  Monaco Yacht Show! We are pretty accustomed to the environment, however there are many things you must consider before stepping onboard.

 

1 Absolutely no heels or shoes that have been used outside are to be worn, these must be taken off, either before or when you first step foot on the Superyacht. The decking is very sensitive to this and when you spend one hundred million plus – dents and dirtiness is the last things you need. You may be provided with onboard slippers or shoes or don’t feel uncomfortable with bare feet. A pedicure is highly recommended beforehand!

2 Safety is the prime responsibility for the captain and crew, and they take it very seriously. Take safety instructions seriously and abide by the yacht rules!

All you need to know before going to Monaco Yacht Show

Monaco Yacht show is Corporate Angels favourite time of the year! This is purely down to the quality and elegance of the people that attend, the beautiful scenery and the super yachts.

Held at the end of September every year the show is extremely glamorous and the perfect place to visit if you are looking to buy your perfect super yacht or simply just party like never before.

Corporate Angels have our team of hostesses assisting only the best at the show such as Boutsen design, and have learnt many things over the years! Here are our top three tips if you are thinking about attending the show;

  • Book well in advance! This is a given but with reservations, finding a room and flights – these are all snatched up for this special event so ensure you are well prepared.

Also, Taxis during this period of time are almost impossible, so if you are not staying close to the show ensure you rent a car, some people wait up to 5 hours to get back home at the weekend via Taxi

  • For the perfect evening visit Coya or Sass Café for an excellent dinner and then venture to Twiga or Jimmy’s for an unforgettable club experience. There are many great places but these are our most favoured!
  • All of the best people venture to the show from all over the world so make sure you have a schedule to visit clients/plan lunches and dinners otherwise you bum into everyone you know and before you know it, the week is over. Our Corporate Angel Personal Assistance arrange the finest dinners, meetings and helicopter transfers for our clients so their trip is productive and very enjoyable not missing any important moments with people that need to be seen.

Corporate angels provide Hostesses to the finest companies at the show and also Personal Assistance for that extra ease, trust and elegance. Please don’t hesitate to say hello to the team next year!

A Truly Stunning Executive Event 24th– 25th August

CA Executive Golfing Event

Stoke Park is one of the most luxury (quint essentially British) Country Clubs in the world, from it’s royal style buildings to its gorgeous flowing golf course! This is the backdrop to one of our favourite CA Approved Events of the year!

Steeped in historical class and golfing excellence, having hosted some of the greatest golfers of all time including Seve Ballesteros, Tony Jacklin and Nick Faldo! Stoke Park may also catch your eye as a familiar place as it is home to many notable films such as Layer Cake and Bridget Jones Diary!

You may have heard the popular notion about how more business gets done on the golf course than in the boardroom. Whether or not that’s true is a matter of debate, but what is undeniable however is the long-standing synergy that exists between business and golf.

Corporate Angels have the pleasure of offering the finest two-day golf networking experience, including stunning food, outstanding golf matches and a Black Tie Evening Gala.

Here at CA we pride ourselves on the seamless connection between business and pleasure. Inviting a client or partner with you for a game of golf presents an ideal chance to get to spend some quality time, away from the office, devoid of shirt and tie and allowing the focus to be on the game at hand as much as discussing business motives, this also offers a great opportunity to meet the wider CA network.

Corporate Angel Networking Events provide a wealth of industry professionals who all share a passion for golf and business. Other options we can offer to you include staying the evening before and also a spa package, should any wonderful ladies wish to join.

The Corporate Angels in Ibiza

Ibiza, a crazy party place where everyone jets off to for a fun and very wild time, however for the Corporate Angels we like to mix things up!

A healthy mind is always key for the team so each morning started off in the hills with a healthy smoothie and morning hike before the meetings kicked in! Friday morning was filled with fantastic introductions with concierge, jet and event connections. Whilst piecing together current client demands of an island party and Bitcoin offers we definitely made the most of our time!

Ibiza filled with lavish apartments and a great nightlife certainly enabled us to brainstorm and get our laptops out in the sun. The CA mentality is as long as client relationships are valued and nurtured and event targets are met the team should be respected and looked after, working in the sun is always more productive…. Right?

On the Saturday we finalised our client plans and booked a date for the Island for an event which we can-not yet reveal (however very exciting) and also after this had many late skype calls with LA to facilitate a deal (CA Chantelle is the tech side of CA and looks after bitcoin very well).

The one evening we did get out we enjoyed Lio. Ibiza’s finest restaurant which came with an awesome show (Link attached below). Lots more trips soon to come this simmer for CA, any information for event assistance or even Ibiza connections please don’t hesitate to contact the CA Team!

Three ways to understand your client better

Corporate Angels have one main focus which is having a great relationship with our clients. Every business is completely different however there are three actions you can take to ensure you maintain a great relationship.

  1. Listen and don’t sell. Yes, this is probably a strange point coming from a businesswomen however the best business always happens alongside people you actually like and trust. Business is all about listening and understanding your clients, first you must develop a professional relationship and then ensure your product or service is of a high quality so when you are asked about this your pitch is perfect and ready to close.
  2. Always stick to your ideal cliental. When you first start in business this may not always be the case but further down the line you want to make sure the quality of your product matches your ideal cliental. This varies for everyone but here at Corporate Angels the trust and communication in B2B is crucial, you and your team always deserve respect.
  3. Response is key, after dealing with global events and HNW individuals we never underestimate the power f communication. Far too many people just assume clients know or leave it a long time before they respond. Ensure you focus on the right people and respond efficiently and politely. The tone always counts.
