Being a Betty!September 23rd, 2011
This week I was lucky enough to join all the Betties in the office for an experience I will never forget!
Flying over from Adelaide to Sydney I found myself questioning if I would fit into the office – was I tanned enough? Smart enough or fit enough for all the running around? Were they called Sweaty Betty because of all the running around? And in that case, did I remember deodorant?
Obviously this picture isn’t of me – I didn’t have any post it notes on me at the time, but its exactly how I felt before!
Walking through the door I was greeted brightly by all the Betties in the office – everyone was very welcoming and friendly – eager to help me out with my new duties and make sure I was having lunch breaks as well as going home on time (even though to me it seemed as though they slept there).
Helping out setting up events, packing gift bags, and seeing the work that the Betties do on a regular basis gave me great insight and experience for the field I will be entering at the conclusion of my degree. Icing on the cake was that the experience was a fun and enjoyable time that couldn’t have finished on a more positive note.
Schwarzkopf Event @ Fratelli Fresh – Note my well positioned dye boxes.
Roxy and the Betties have a great work environment (did I mention the chocolate and fruit gifts?) and I am so appreciative of the time they have allowed me to experience being a Betty for a week, especially when they have as much work as they do!
The only negative part of coming to Sweaty Betty is the exposure I have had to all their brands – goodbye savings, hello wardrobe full of Rachel Gilbert!
