The Story Behind Events Gyani
Childhood is the mirror of the future - I guess the quote turned true for me! I have always enjoyed organizing events. In my school days, I used to be the go-to person among my friends for planning get together- obviously low budget ones.
So, event management has been close to my heart since then and has always excited me. I personally love weddings, not just for fun and food, but for the experience of royalty and charm about the decorations, lights, and the entire atmosphere. Therefore, I wanted to explore more but luck doesn't favour always!
It all started 15 years ago while choosing my future path. Back then, very few people knew event management can also be a full-time career option. Usually, people would hire different vendors for different services to arrange an event, not like all under one roof.
So, for daily bread and butter, I started my career in the banking sector, but never let go of my dream. Though I did my role well, but never felt that job satisfaction. One fine day, in those thought-provoking and soul searching moments, I decided to start our event management company along with my mom, who is truly one of my biggest supporters.
Another reason was, I found there were a few handfuls of companies doing event business in Kolkata rather than Delhi or Mumbai. Therefore, to get exposure to this line of business, I had to start on my own.
And you know, my experience in banking became the biggest learning. I realized the value of how important customer service and customer satisfaction is.
But no road towards success is smooth, and we also faced obstacles, particularly during the initial few years. As we were a newbie in event management, we had a hard time acquiring clients. Because experience matters no matter how innovative or cost-effective we are. But you know “Time Teaches Everything and Perseverance is the Key.”
Our progress was slow but steady and, little by little, we built several key connections and made a foothold in the business to generate a steady flow of clients.
I believe the biggest success is probably the feeling of satisfaction when clients are happy with our services provided. So, we make sure that we don’t leave any stone unturned to make that happen, and that has been the motto of my business.
