The new year is always a good time to review and begin new paths, but this year I found myself reflecting and planning in beautiful Paris! Along with other fantastic North East businesses, I was lucky enough to secure a place on a UK Trade & Investment trip to Maison et Objet.
Maison et Objet is an absolute giant of a trade show, with so many stands and products, I was overwhelmed and beyond inspired. But the trip wasn’t just to spot the latest trends; for me it was to answer some big business questions of my own. This year at Daisy & Bump we are thinking about where we would like our little business to go in the next few years.
Returning home, feeling the fabulous trip had probably thrown up more questions than it had actually answered, I’m grateful to have learnt so much and have my eyes opened to paths I hadn’t considered before.
I might be still working through my plans, but one thing I do know is that I certainly do feel more empowered to participate in trade shows next year… exciting times ahead!
