Ruth’s Report: Surviving and Thriving in my Second Week

It is the end of my second week at LGA and I feel so at home, it’s like I’ve been working here for months… although in some ways, the time has passed so quickly.

I have loved the variety of the work I am doing, there are so many different jobs to do that it’s hard to get bored.

This week has been more focused on the entertainment side of Lea Graham, which you can learn more about here. I have learnt about contracts, the entertainers themselves, and how important it is to know your performers well. I wrote a blog about it, which you can read here.

I have really enjoyed going to various meetings and interacting with the clients. One of my favourite trips was when I accompanied Susan to a vineyard to have a meeting about supplying some entertainment for them. We were given a tour before the meeting and it was incredibly beautiful and rich in history.

The great thing about working in a small office with three businesses is that it’s hard to get bored. I’ve also learnt a lot more about Electric Body, the journey it has taken Susan and Graham on, the people they have met and experiences they have had because of it.

In such a short time, I have learnt many skills that will be helpful not only in the rest of my time here but in later life too. Lea Graham has also given me a huge confidence boost as I have realised that I am capable of much more than I thought. After a short holiday this week, I’ll be back in the office on Monday ready to update you all on whatever I learn next. I can’t wait.

As part of LGA’s commitment to mentoring people, Ruth Stevenson will be interning with us over the summer. Her weekly report will offer insight into the minds of Generation X as they enter the workplace. Keep up to date by checking our blog regularly or following us on social media.
