I've been lucky enough to be approached by some great companies over the last couple of years. It has led me to work in Lagos, Nigeria where I performed for CMB Real Estate. Which you can read a full account of in this article.
Another highlight on my CV was doing a couple of days for highstreet heavyweight Crabtree & Evelyn working on their Cracker Spectacular on Regent Street where I also got to meet the owner who was visiting from Malaysia and gave me a lovely gift bag full of goodies. I also got to get this film made from this event which will be a really useful resource to advertise how I can be a strong corporate event juggler for future bookers.
More recently, in the last couple of months I've been booked by Screwfix for a flagship store opening in Ipswich. I was challenged to make my act DIY related so I did the natural thing and imported circular saw blades from America that are specially adapted to juggle with. I also spent a large portion of the day juggling hammers. Who needs a gym membership.
Its both interesting and encouraging to see the wide range of events that wish to hire circus performers and its a nice challenge when each gig is different.
Another name that I was quite proud of this year was when I was booked by Price Waterhouse Coopers for one of their internal trade shows. It was a fun day of interactive juggling demos to entertain their staff whilst simultaneously running a competition to win an Ipad. The winner being the person that could juggle stress balls for the longest. The winner was a herculian 22 minutes. Hats off to the chap.
As we move into the Christmas season I'm not yet sure what events lie in store, there is a possibilty of a repeat trip to Lagos, if their event goes ahead (fingers crossed) and various christmas events. But hopefully there's still room for plenty more corporate juggler bookings in the coming months.
