Recruiting Millennials. Attractive salary or attractive work perks?

The event industry is notorious for high staff turnover. There's an appealing facade to the event industry drawing in new graduates that think it's all parties, public relations and music festivals. When it comes down to the nitty gritty, research, planning, communications, drafting contracts and so on, people lose interest in the less glamorous side of the job. 

So, what keeps the millennials motivated and engaged at work? It seems it's not just the money.

EXPLORE EUROPE | 3 DAYS IN BUDAPEST.

I arrived in Budapest on a train from Prague. Trains across Europe are great. Being able to sit and write this glaring into the green scenery of Czech is just ideal. Ear phones in, hot coffee, various snacks. All about that.  

As a city still standing on old world charm, the natural draw to Budapest is it’s visual history. The instantaneous attraction is feeling like you’ve stepped into a city, years beyond your time. Naturally, luxury follows old world; making it one of the most desirable destinations of the world.

EXPLORE EUROPE | 3 DAYS IN LAKE COMO.

We recently returned from a trip to the small town of Argegno in Italy, a treasure destination by the beautiful Lake Como. It truly was one of the most beautiful places. The small town charm, community of friendly, welcoming Italians, and the R&R activities make it a great spot for an executive retreat. 

Accommodation as usual is my favourite element of the trip. I always source venues and locations that are unique. I'm also a big fan of hotels right in the hustle and bustle of it, but for somewhere on Lake Como I think it's a great opportunity to AirBnB or do an apartment hire. I stayed in an amazing rented house, which you could only reach through a long winding walkway and approximately 1 billion steps.

Amsterdam new ruling on beer bikes - are we really that sad about it?

We were in Amsterdam earlier this year a an incentive trip. I was in conversation with a guy at the hotel who was running through the most popular tourist activities, what is worthwhile and what might be worth a miss at that time of the year. We got into a discussion about the beer bikes, which I have heard a lot about in the past and was curious about how popular they were. Yes, in theory they sound super fun and (maybe) if you're on a hen/stag do it would seem like an obligatory activity to book.

Reykjavik is such a small, quaint little city. I booked a last minute trip over here to see what all the fuss what about, and I was not disappointed.
