Knowing me as well as she did, she pointed out that this might just be the perfect career change I was looking for, which after 15 years, I was beginning to feel that I’d taken my corporate career as far as I could and I craved a new challenge).
To start with I was sceptical. But, intrigued by her enthusiasm, I started to investigate the industry. Soon I found that far from just making balloon animals for children’s parties, a career in balloon decor could really be the change I was looking for.
I could satisfy my creative side, where my eye for detail would also be really useful and my need to really make people happy would have an outlet too. So I sought out the best balloon artist in the country and went along to learn everything I could. Shortly, “The Ultimate Balloon Company” was born and I got my very first customers.
Eventually I became a fully qualified balloon artist and the business started to take off (no pun intended!) the rest, as they say, is history. History that has seen me working with the likes of Coca Cola, Tina Turner and even the Royal family!
