One of GOGO’s missions is to bring joy to our clients’ lives through our interior design work. Another mission is to share our creative talent to give back to the world around us. We are blessed to be able to do this through several channels with my work with non-profits’ No Shame on U and Designs4Dignity.
Giving Back to my Industry Peers
Another outlet for giving back is volunteering within PowerHouse SMART®, a Membership Community in the Luxury Design, Build and Real Estate arena. This networking and education community is working to grow to new heights while fostering business growth and development for its’ members in the Chicagoland and Midwest markets.
This significant industry conference will bring together 300+ leaders in the Luxury Design, Build, Real Estate Industry for a half day of spectacular Inspiration, Collaboration and cutting-edge Education.
My work is to help create and support the Vision for the Luxury Conference. Michael and I have had an amazing time promoting this event, specifically through the power of video. Collaborating with videographer Pasquale Iannino, Rockit Projects, and PHS Founder, Wendy Cohen, we filmed two conference videos. One is information-centered to promote excitement around the conference details and the other as a funny teaser video. The latter may make you giggle, as Michael and I promote the conference as Laverne & Shirley, marching through theMART hand in hand to the theme song of their hit comedy TV show in the early 80’s.
I invite you to join us on February 7, 2018 at the PowerHouse SMART® Luxury Conference, where together we can “Make Our Dreams Come True”! 😉
Here is an excerpt from our story that you may not have known about GOGO.:
GOGO’s story began when I was a tiny girl who accompanied her art historian mother on a regular basis to art museums and outdoor museums such as Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia and Old Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts. During those excursions, she taught me how form truly follows function. She described how color, shape, composition and the people living in the spaces we viewed, both in paintings and in everyday life, were affected emotionally by these factors. On these excursions I absorbed a sense of empathy, which I am honing as an adult. HOW we experience the spaces in which we live, is the essence of creating our homes, not only on a physical level, but on an emotional level, as well.
Life moves forward at GOGO design group, embracing this refreshing notion fuels growth and evolution. Just as our interior design work supports and inspires our clients as their lives are elevated forward, we continue to hone our WHY.
