ACTIVATE CELEBRATES ITS 10TH ANNIVERSARY

Paul Bowie, Activate founder and Managing Director, issued the following statement to mark the company’s 10th anniversary.

“The one word that repeats most often, from Year 1 to today is – Passion. As a business owner and as part of a strong leadership team, I know that the key to success is having a passion for your business, if you are part of a team, it’s having a passion for your industry and for your role.

We can all learn to be better at what we do, we can even learn to do new things, however we are unable to learn passion for a business or a role. If we are very lucky people, we have it within us – I know I have always been passionate about Activate and I believe many of the Activaters past and present have also felt that way! Here we are ten years down the line, many highs and lows and global challenges, financial, environmental and health-related (Covid!) under our belt.

Time to take stock, be proud of what the current team and all those who have been part of Activate’s journey over the years have brought to the company – but not for too long – business never stops, laurels are not for resting on – for Activate it is on to the next project.

These are exciting days – days of achievement, industry, teamwork, and most of all a passion for events and the events industry! We would also like to thank all our industry partners who have supported us in so many ways and have been part of our journey. We look forward to growing existing partnerships and developing new ones as our Activate adventure continues.”

Why Event Services Aren’t a Commodity

Events are far from neurosurgery so what we take from this analogy is not the condensed pressure of responsibility towards one patient’s life but the responsibility the event organizer has towards the entire audience (sometimes numbered in thousands) to bring value, to inspire and to make their at...

Event Apps Help or Hindrance?

Apps are seen as the instant fix for those who want to “take the event into the 21st century” by digitalizing it. We agree, it’s pretty cool to allow technology to do some of the hard work. It helps with perception too. Not all brands are Apple and by simply having an “app” the event gets...
