Paralympics Closing Ceremony (Toni - London Olympics)

The Paralympics Closing Ceremony is now a distant memory, but what a spectacular show with Coldplay headlining.  Once again I was managing the entrance from the West Stand dressing rooms onto the stage, and this show was just as full on as the Olympic ceremonies.    Two weeks after the show the staging and offices were broken down and shipped off-site, and then for most of us it was farewell to London, with a rather large party to finish things off.  Some people are moving straight on to Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games, but most are taking time out for a break.  

I have arrived back in NZ to my third summer in a row!  Queenstown's looking great with cherry blossoms and tulips out, and the mountains still sparkling with snow.  After speaking to classes at QRC and Mt Roskill Grammar regarding my experiences at the Olympic and Paralympic Games, I am now working hard in the office of Red Events, and developing our marketing plan for the year ahead.
