As professionals, we are always training, getting better, moving forward in what we do, techniques and styles.
Last night I had a training session with Matt Falloon, he’s quite the teacher,
These are called popups, they are balloons that right themselves
So many times I get questioned about why we are expensive, and I get it, you want to look after the budget, but this is why you want want to only work with professionals.
Today, I was twisting balloons and entertaining the crowd,
A little girl about 12 so not that little I guess, at the front of my line fainted, as a Professional, I have all my insurances and working with children’s checks, and a senior first aid cerificate, And nearly 20years working with children.
I’m lucky to have caught her before she hit anything, I let her down gently and made sure her head did not hit the ground, put her into the recovery position and, as others (thank you parents that came in to assist when this happened, you are awsome) called her carers and management, we started cooling her down, this was all done calmly, and methodically.
Her little sister was also in the line for balloons so after we got sister 1 squared away, cold cloths and cold water, carers in attendance I made her the best poppy troll-like balloon I could, I made sure she had down and got her to smile and relax.
This is my life.
Being an entertainer means I am always prepared, I have a first aid kit with me should it be required, I am very conscious about health and safety because you and your children are my responsibility, both in entertainment and in safety when I’m booked, because accidents happen my friends, A professional entertainer will always Be Prepared, even if it’s not me, make sure you are sure of whom you are working with
Be well my friends
