By | Super Mentor Academy, an intern's POV | No Comments

We asked one of our interns to share their point of view and share what they think and feel when starting with a new company. This is what they said….

The last few days, we’ve been experiencing an unseasonably, crazy warm heatwave…especially for September when people should be pulling out their scarves, sipping lattes and dressing in layers once again.

By | thought of the day | No Comments

There’s that saying:

“You’re only as strong as your weakest link.”

How much are you investing in your links? Want to take your business to the next level? You can’t do it alone. You need a good team around you and it’s not as simple as finding and hiring superhero event professionals.

No matter how successful or qualified we are, we should always be working on our personal development otherwise we stagnate.
