Plan For Perfect, Stress-Free Events with Twenty Three Layers

Whatever the occasion, these 10 tips from event planner/blogger Camille Styles will make your even go more smoothly:

 

  1. Download a Party Checklist for Easy Planning

 

To cut back on the stress and intimidation factors, find a checklist that will help carry you from the early planning stages to the final hour before your event begins.

 

  1. Keep Three Lists

 

Styles recommends keeping three lists: A master to-do list, a shopping list, and a guest list. She recommends using the guest list to keep track of RSVPs, contact information, and any special dietary needs your guests might have.

 

Of course, if keeping three lists sounds like much too much of a hassle, you can always call Twenty Three Layers, one of the most highly recommended event planning companies in NYC.

 

  1. Choose a Theme

 

Every occasion can be made a little more fun and memorable with the addition of a theme that carries through from the invitations to the food to the music.

 

  1. Send Your Invitations

 

Traditional paper invitations that come in the mail lend a touch of distinction to any event.

 

  1. Offer a Self-Serve Bar

 

Self-serve bars can be as simple as a bar tray stocked with two or three liquors, a nice decanter, and some fun mixers. Plan for one drink per guest per hour as a general rule.

 

Professional event planners in NYC, Twenty Three Layers will ensure your guests are served in whatever style you see fit, whether it be self-serve or full bar with an attendant. If your event becomes too big to handle yourself, give Twenty Three Layers a call.

 

  1. Create a Specialty Drink for Your Occasion

 

Specialty cocktails are always a hit, especially if they match the theme of the event and taste great at the same time.

 

  1. Keep Appetizers Simple

 

To save yourself time and hassle, opt for pre-made appetizers rather than making them from scratch.

 

  1. If Appropriate, Set Up a Kids’ Table

 

In a family-friendly environment, it’s nice to give children an option for entertaining themselves at a designated table.

 

  1. Keep Your Settings Simple

 

Simple touches such as handwritten name tags, flatware tied with an eye-catching ribbon, or colorful napkins can keep an event space visually interesting without being overwhelming.

 

  1. Relax

 

The host sets the tone for the party, so don’t forget to relax and enjoy the festivities.

Running A Company That Values Spiritualism And Sacrificing For Others: Vijay Eswaran’s Values

Dr. Vijay Eswaran has many accomplishments to point to at his company QI Group Ltd. He introduced ecommerce and direct selling to the health and wellness markets of Asia through QNet and has provided others the opportunities to build their own businesses through QNet’s direct selling program.

According to QBuzz, but most importantly Vijay Eswaran has included charity for his company through the RYTHM Foundation and the Vijayratnam Foundation. Read more: Five Minutes With Dr. Vijay Eswaran, Executive Chairman, QI Group

These philanthropies fund services and care for disabled children, schools across Asia, villages facing crises and environmental cleanup operations. Eswaran’s company has come through a lot of financial difficulties to get to where it is today.

Vijay Eswaran was born in Malaysia and traveled around the nation while his father worked for the Ministry of Labor. He relocated to Europe as a young man where he attended the London School of Economics and then spent time in various odd jobs. A couple years later he moved to the US and completed grad school at Southern Illinois.

He worked as a consultant for several IT and marketing companies while at the same time pursuing some direct selling opportunities on the side. He decided to take the plunge into multilevel marketing completely and returned to Malaysia in 1998 with the Cosway Group.

Eswaran cofounded QI Group in 1998 and started exploring ecommerce as its primary form of sales. Most products are sold through QNet, a company that sells household cleaning products and water purification systems, health and personal training products, automotive supplies and even vacation packages through sister companies.

Along with QNet Eswaran also founded QI Asset Management which owns several vacation villas and resorts and offers customers various credit and financing resources. Right now he is looking to complete a green housing project for QI University in Ipoh City.

Eswaran is an author and his bestselling book is In The Sphere Of Silence, a book about becoming a business leader through learning inner silence. He also lectures at universities and seminars from time to time and is a regular speaker at the World Economic Forum. He is known as one of Forbes Asia’s Heroes of Philanthropy.

The amazing business strategies that saw EOS beat market veterans like Chapstick

That EOS lip balm has made its mark among the millenials is a fact. From the mega stars like Taylor Swift, who is the brand ambassador to the Asian Markets, to Christina Aguilera and Miley Cyrus, you can spot them carrying a pot of that delicious smelling and attractive balm in their bags. However, the journey to becoming the most popular lip care product in a market that is swamped with veterans like chapstick was not an easy one. The company may have caught a lucky break because of the innovative leadership of Sanjiv Mehra.

The past few decades have been dominated by the presence of brands that never missed at the cosmetics section of the drugstore. Every female knew that lip care meant getting a tube of chapstick, and it they were feeling like experimenting, the best they could do was switch the plain with an interesting scent. The manufacturers of the lip balms seemed to be stuck in the tube, literally, and were only playing with the price tag to try and outdo one another.

When Sanjiv and his team came in, they decided it was time for an evolution. They rethought the tube and replaced it with a pot, it was great, but there was a challenge. The main challenge was that the pot was a little bit unhygienic. They had to streamline the design to make it possible for the pot to be applied directly to the lips and they did. They included interesting colors, flavors and gave the containers a delicious click sound when closed, and the perfect evolution in lip care had been set in motion.

The next challenge was to get someone to market their product. They were lucky to find a woman in Walgreens that liked their product. The product moved so fast that Target and Walmart started stocking. Then, they decided it was time to try and sell the product to the one age group that would end up making all the difference, the millenials. They organized campaigns and had stars like Miley and Kim sell the product, and it was an instant hit.

It is the usefulness and the pleasure that came with the use of the balm that made it as popular as it is today, states Mehra. The business is projected to get even better in the next few years.

Securus Technologies Introducing Advanced Software to Prevent Crimes

Securus Technologies is among the leading communication service provider for law enforcement agencies, correctional facilities and safety agencies across the nation. The company has more than 3,400 numbers of clients and even more subscribers that have reached over 1.2 million in this year.

 

Securus Technologies offers many different communication services that can be used in various platforms like iOS, Android, Windows, and others. One can choose from many different plans available for collect calls, inmate debit, direct billing and more. They have also introduced a number monitoring software for calls that allow the agencies to keep a track on the inmates and the phone calls that they make to their families and friends. It allows them to easily find out about any criminal activity that they might be planning such as the distribution of alcohol and drugs or even murder.

 

There have always been reports and feedback given to the company from their clients which include professionals in the police force, the prisons and the sheriff’s departments that use their technologies. They often share their experience with the company so that they can not only keep up the good work but also design new software that will be helpful to them.

 

I was one of the members of the committee that was designed to find out if Securus Technologies are any good. I visited their headquarter in Dallas and Texas and was surprised to see the different systems that they have to prevent crimes and also catch the criminals doing illegal activities. They also demonstrate in depth about how the system can be used in the different environment to suit everyone. We were quite happy with the demonstration and decided to hire them straight away. I also talked to some of the present customers who spoke highly of them, and we could not have been happier.
