Things to Consider When Organizing an Event in a Remote Location

Organizing an event is a difficult task by itself. Certain factors can complicate it even more, such as having to hold the event in a remote location. This often comes with some unique challenges of its own, and it’s important to prepare for them if you don’t want to find yourself stuck in an unpleasant situation. On the bright side, the list of potential problems isn’t actually that long. As long as you cover the basics, you should be able to get the job done with no problems.

Supplies

Hosting a party that far away usually comes with some negative implications for your access to food, drinks, and other supplies. Pay attention to how much you’re going to need, and stock up in advance to prevent any nasty surprises. A big event can turn very sour if your guests suddenly realize that there’s nothing left to drink, even if it’s a more formal one. And that’s a problem that’s easily avoidable with some ahead planning. It might cost you a bit more to keep the event stocked up nicely, but it will make a huge difference.

Transportation

Consider how your guests are going to get to the place too. This might not seem like much of a concern to you if you’ve already sorted out your own transportation, but many people might have trouble finding your spot if it’s new to them and they don’t come by car. Find out what options are available for public transportation, and send a well-organized list to all your guests. Ensure that everyone has your contact details as well, so that they can get in touch with you if they get lost along the way. Hopefully this won’t happen, but you should account for the worst possibilities when planning something like this.

Internet Access

Another common problem that you’ll have to deal with in a remote location is providing your guests with internet access. This might not be very straightforward if you’re far away from any direct connections, so you might have to think of a specific solution for yourself. Wi-Fi for events is relatively easy and cheap to rent, and it can solve this problem without any hassle. It can also be a good way to improve the entertainment value of your event in general, by enabling online music streaming and other nice features. It won’t take long to do the initial setup, so look into getting this sorted out as early as possible.

Once you’ve hosted a party like this successfully, it will become easier to get the job done in the future. There are some common problems that will come up most of the time, and anticipating them is half of the challenge. The rest is about knowing what resources you have at your disposal, and making proper use of them. And of course, working with the right professionals for certain services that you’re going to need during the event can’t hurt either, as long as you can afford it comfortably of course.

Samuel Leeds Buys Shares In Property Tribes; Says He Wants To Make It Better

People in UK property circles may be familiar with the very public dispute between former MTV presenter, property investor, and community manager of the company Property Tribes, Vanessa Warwick, & property investment trainer and owner of the company ‘Property Investors’, Samuel Leeds; as Leeds has accused Warwick of assisting with racism and discrimination against ethnic minority tenants. In recent news, Samuel Leeds was reported to have bought a 35% share of the company Property Tribes, making him officially now a person of significant control at Property Tribes.

Warwick established Property Tribes to accumulate wisdom from various property owners and landlords to create a place of guidance for people in the industry to do business better. According to the company,

“We wanted to create a free use, safe, and agenda-free place for landlords to get information from a “hive mind”, not a singularity, so that they could learn and grow their property business.”

However, in one of his recent videos, Samuel Leeds pointed out blatant support of racism in some of the advice coming from Warwick herself. As one of the landlords asks on the forum – if they would be implicated by the race discrimination laws in the UK for refusing tenancy to Bangladeshi families as the landlord is not fond of the smell of their staple food, curry; Vanessa Warwick herself is seen advising against mentioning the reason for said refusal, thus averting the legal repercussions altogether.

In the video, Leeds points out several more situations where Warwick has behaved in a racist manner. In fact, she has become a new advisor on the panel of the UK’s Property Redress Scheme and has been under criticism in their forum as well for supporting discrimination against ethnic minorities.

Warwick also expressed strong disapproval of Leeds as a property trainer citing the reason that his students came from the “vulnerable” demographic. Leeds called out the racist mindset in this reasoning, as in reality, his students predominantly come from ethnic minorities and don’t fall in the “vulnerable” category. He began drawing attention to the issue over his YouTube channel and his website, and ended up facing severe disparagement from Warwick and her followers. Leeds finally sued Warwick for defamation and she brought a counter lawsuit for six-figure damages.

In an attempt to put an end to the battle once and for all, Samuel Leeds reports to have bought a share, 35% to be exact, of the company, Property Tribes. Even though he is only a minority shareholder and will have limited control, Leeds believes he can make a difference in “cleaning up the company” and reduce racism in the forum.

He jokingly adds,

“Because they trolled me, I wanted to at least get paid… Like Michael Jackson did to Eminem.”

Leeds pledges that any money he makes off this transaction will be donated to charitable organisations that tackle racism and online bullying. In addition, Leeds will donate an extra £50,000 to organisations that fight hatred in the UK. With this move, he is determined to take a strong stand against all discriminations in the property sector or any other industry.
