Unbox is all about bringing people together. Connecting them in a way that’s really meaningful. A shared experience.
And our second Unbox event did just that. Just look at all those lovely faces. Over 100 of them.
We had selfies.
Food, glorious food.
And just loads of love.
And it didn’t stop there…
Alison was amazing. She was humble. Real. We mean, real with a capital R. And simply, hilarious.
Away from the “talent” that we see daily on our screens – she’s had the likes of Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford in hysterics, she’s “married” the Rock and Wolverine – she is a hard-working Mom. A mother who is determined to install the same family values into her lovely son, that she absorbed from her amazing mother, Maria, and her brother and sister. It was clear that being a mother will always be Alison’s most treasured job.
AND SHE MANAGES HER OWN SOCIAL MEDIA – entertaining – on the daily – over 2 million followers across Instagram, TikTok and Twitter – she can’t be bothered with LinkedIn, apparently. Lightbox might do that for her, let’s see. And if you were there, you would have got some great tips as to how she manages this – we won’t tell you them all, but one was that at any one time she has nearly 100 drafts ready to go. The lady is a machine.
- Anger is too much effort. Do everything with kindness, grace and wisdom.
- Be kind. Forgive.
- Remove negativity from your life. Immediately.
- Ignore the haters. And live YOUR life.
Oh, and if you want to be a TV presenter – get on the old social media and show the world what you’re good at. So many people are now forging a career in television without ever having an interview, having to network, or producing their own professional reel, so who knows where that could take you. But just incase it doesn’t get you to the big screen, make sure you’re having fun and that you are doing it for both you and others ⚡️
For those that were able to attend, we hope you enjoyed it – the social media feeds throughout and after suggest you did. For those that weren’t able to a) follow the Unbox Insta Page here to learn about our next events and b) the below will give you an idea of how it went.
Thank you, Alison.
Thank you for being so lovely (she spent time, took pics, recorded videos etc. with nearly every guest) and for leaving over 120 people happy, motivated and feeling loved.
So, what’s next? Firstly, the date for Unbox #3 is Thursday the 24th of November. And it’s going to be awesome.
Who’s the speaker, you ask? Well, we will tell you very soon. Think of global brands. To do with feet. Any guesses yet? He will be talking about everything from building “invisible” influencer marketing campaigns, to having lunch with Pharrell Williams. It’s going to be amazing.
For now, however, thanks for the love. Remember to keep it real, to empower one another, and to be your best. It’s as simple as that.
