WNT founder and manager Jennie Duck shares her experience of the WNT team effort in making a video and in general how this collaborative ethos sets the tone for a great clinic and studio.
We made this video with footage taken on an in-house photo and video shoot when I was down for our 5th birthday celebrations at the start of October. It feels appropriate that the collaborative ethos of our work made the very tools that we want to use to promote it - what we can achieve when we get together.
It's been so exciting to see the fruits of our efforts in putting together a video showing who we are as WNT and how we work. The 90 second video we've made really does show us, it gives an authentic feel for our clinic and studio space and us as a team. I'm really proud and happy that the place and environment shown in this video is West Norwood Therapies, a seed I sowed back in 2014 that has grown to be so much more than me working alone in a room! The collaborative ethos and energy that shines through in the video is what makes WNT unique and pretty damn awesome :-)
That trip south (from my rural home on the West coast of Scotland) was a fabulous few days. We were all really excited to be together for celebrating our birthday - it's a rare privilidge to be with each and every one of us, it can be hard to get a dynamic gang in one place at once! We had a meeting on the Saturday afternoon, refelcting on our successes and challenges as individual practitioners as well as a collective. We rounded this off with a 'cup of friendship' - a Scottish tradition involving a bottle of whiskey and a quaich. Yummy.
After our meeting we headed out to one of WN's best local restaurants, The Garden (even more yummy) and nursed our hangovers at Feast the next day before turning WNT into a photo studio and shooting a pile of photos and videos to help us with promoting our unique and awesome business with the people we want to work with (you!).
I keep coming back to 4 words to describe the experience in working with the Wonderful Women of WNT and those are: warm, thoughtful, intelligent and fun. That is the environment we create at West Norwood Therapies which gives the energy that runs through treatments and classes. After celebrating us as a collective we want to celebrate us as individuals - so over the next few weeks we'll be running social media posts along the theme 'we love working with...' describing one another as colleagues. We hope you enjoy getting to know us better!
