Managing an entertainment company – Dj Hire
When Melbourne Dj hire and our partnering photobooth company beauty and the booth started while we were young Melbourne DJs and photographers. Melbourne Dj hire has been running for about 20 years and the photobooth company for 4 years. This year we welcomed a baby into the mix and there were many adjustments that had to be made.
Firstly the owner of the photobooth company was pregnant therefore she couldn’t set up the equipment as there were boxes of printers and photobooths that would need loading in and out of venues and setting up as well. We do take trolleys with us however it is getting them in and out of cars, tackling venues with stairs and steps that is the tricky situation. We hired a helper to go out with her to bookings and he would lift the items as well as get some training on the job.
Sometimes when a client had booked a Melbourne Dj, photobooth and photographer our other staff would help her lift the items and set up while she either do the attending or she would be the roaming photographer.
At parties where one of our staff were there to help her during some downtime there were also some admin work that could be taken care of since there were 2 photobooth attendants. When it came close to the due date of the pregnancy she took the last 2 months off and worked on office work such as designing logos, updating website, social media and blogs.
Just a day after delivery we had a last minute booking that came in and she had to design a logo in the hospital. It was a interesting experience and Melbourne Dj hire are glad to have gone through it so now we know what to expect when another team member is expecting!
