No, your eyes are not deceiving you… this is the DeLorian!…Okay so maybe it’s not THE DeLorian, but it was one of the 10 replicas made from the film Back to the Future, starring Michael J Fox!
…And we found it at a recent trade show which we attended in Coventry.
We did leave for the show on the wrong day and only realised when we were half-way there! We felt a little silly when we had to turn around and repeat ourselves the next day!
It was absolutely fantastic though, full of manufacturers of personalised and promotional items such as stress balls, sweets, cuddly toys, mugs and so much more! We thought that our arms were going to fall off by the end of the day due to all of the free gifts that we were being inundated with!
I will say however, that the Hover Board (in particular) was staring at me and it took all of my will-power not to jump over the rope and have a play with it!
If that wasn’t enough excitement we also attended our Suppliers launch event in Birmingham where we met the Baroness Brady! We were even cheeky enough to ask who her current provider of stationery was and offer her a business card… if you don’t ask, you won’t get! That’s our motto!
We discovered some wonderful new stationery products such as the Snopake polka-dot range and their gusset ring-binder Polyfile and, like at the trade only show our bags were soon full… no need for the gym that evening! We were well and truly weighted down!
We even managed to squeeze in some fantastic workshops too!
On the way home we even bumped into Bill Roach and Melanie Sykes at Crewe Station and had a quick hug with them!
Three celebrities all in one day… we were ever so slightly overwhelmed!
I think we have done our fair share of shows for a while though, all this gallivanting is very tiring work!
Now, if that wasn’t enough, we also managed somehow to squeeze in a slot on Red Shift Radio Crewe!
Red Shift is a not-for-profit community organisation who are committed to bringing the listeners, businesses, schools and communities of South Cheshire together. There are a variety of different shows which you can tune into, however I happened to have a slot on the Business Hour to talk about GSS Office Supplies LTD!
It was terribly exciting and I have to say that after seeing three celebrities in the same week and starring on the radio, I did feel ever so slightly like a celebrity myself.
I was interviewed by the fantastic Ewan Sturman- the Executive Director of BNI Cheshire and North Wales who made me feel very welcome and relaxed… I would definitely be up for visiting Red Shift Radio again!
