For our next installment of our podcast series 'One Amazing Experience', we were delighted to be joined by Industry legend, Johnny Roxburgh. You can see a preview below or listen to the full podcast here.
Johnny has worked in the events industry for over 40 years and, as other Podcasts in this series have certified, has been an inspiration to many companies and leaders over the years. One of the co-founders of The Admirable Crichton, and now of Johnny Roxburgh Party Architects, he is renowned for his exceptional creativity, joie de vivre and immense intention to detail. His vision and event designs have allowed him to manage some of the most high profile and uber budget events.
Johnny talks to us from his sun drenched garden in Norfolk (please excuse slight inherent connection challenges!) about the event he would put on at Spencer House and all the magic he would provide for his guests.
From Polar Bears to waiters in tutus his creativity and understanding of how to put on a show are on full display for his 700 guests. While talking us through the event we touch on how his business has evolved over the years, the influences on him, what has driven his success, his exceptional work ethic and the importance of looking after your team in an economic downturn. His passion, ideas and experience of managing over 9000 events, from Spice Girl weddings to exotic events around the world, provide an inspiring and colourful insight into his world for listeners.
