13 Jul Meet the Dream Team: Kitti D.
As a full service event company, our love for food and celebration inspires us to create dreamy dishes and unforgettable gatherings. Our passion for catering and entertainment, no matter what the event may be, inspires us daily to create personal relationships with our past, present and future clients.
None of this is possible without our team. Each month on the blog we’re highlighting a member of the Dream Team and hope that you will have a greater sense of the love we have for what we do daily. The next team member we’re featuring in the series is Kitti Dunn, Event & Office Coordinator. Learn more about her below.
How long have you been on the Dream Team?
What’s a typical day at Dream like for you?
There really is no “typical” since the events, wants and needs are constantly changing.
A lot of phone calls, emails, creating proposals, answering questions, doing anything I can to make life easier for others in our office and for my clients!
How do you stay on top of everything? Any organizational tips or tricks?
To do list on a “sticky” on the computer. Also, lots of Post-it notes, which I’m trying to get away from, but they are so “in your face” that it’s hard not to get them done
Best thing for emails is to not archive it until you have completed what you needed to do with it. By the end of the day, I should have nothing in my “inbox” unless it is waiting on something from someone else or the client themselves.
How important is company culture?
Very important! Diversity and inclusivity are a must! Teamwork is what makes Dream work, and I know that is so cliche, but it is also so true for us. We are a team and help each other every way we can. I try to always keep a smile on my face, wish someone a good morning, acknowledge every person I see at work, keep a positive attitude, and the biggest thing is to make others at Dream smile. That’s why there is always a full candy dish at my desk. It works!
What’s your favorite part about your job?
The food. No, seriously, being so proud and honored to show off the food and the tablescaping and our exceptional service. Dream has always strived to be the very best, and it shows.
I love to do my follow-ups after events where I ask the client for their feedback. Getting their praising and glowing responses is truly the best. And then to have them come back to us over and over, that makes me the happiest!
Where is one place you want to travel to?
Well, I have two, one in the USA and one not. Alaska, because it is just so beautiful and I like the cold. And the other would be Madagascar because of the animals. My favorite are lemurs.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Spending time with my daughter and friends. I love to cook, camp, go to art crawls, listen to good music, and see nature.
