Ditzy Media turns 8!
The 14th of July has come round once again and I can’t quite believe it is now 8 years since I hit the publish button on the website, socials etc for Ditzy Media.
It has been a hugely busy and rewarding 12 months.
Coming out (finally) slowly from the pandemic, and joyously witnessing things returning to normal. Events came back, networking came back, face to face training and meetings came back.
This has been a huge highlight of being in business over the past 12 months – getting out and being with people again.
We have been at Chamber House now since 2020, but this past year was the first time to really appreciate being in our new digs, working closely with Eastbourne Chamber and EDEAL and with the BID team downstairs – it has been lovely to work in such a hive of activity!
Life changed forever late 2021, when I had the privilege of becoming Chair of Eastbourne Carnival, taking over from Stephen Lloyd.
This was a hugely enjoyable experience and one that kept me very busy – particularly in the run up to the event in June.
Personal highlights were seeing everyone’s wonderful efforts in costume, floats and performance – making Carnival a true celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee – and also my family putting on the Ditzy Truck. Seeing people of every age dance down the road behind the truck was just fabulous.
New working relationships and friendships have come out of the event, and it has also reinforced bonds with people I have known and worked with for a very long time.
I am grateful for everyone’s support this year with the business (my wonderful customers and business colleagues) and the Carnival.
The world of business keeps changing, and the only certainty is uncertainty – that much I have learnt over the past 8 years.
That said, being a business owner and the master of my own destiny still gets me out of bed in the morning with a smile on my face.
