Elevate + Auburn
A few weeks ago, Elevate had the opportunity to host an event at Auburn University. The event, Emerge Auburn, was unlike any other the Elevate team has had the privilege of being a part of. This event was loaded with energy, encouragement, and passion. The purpose of this event was to kick off a new student organization striving to create a successive leadership journey. It was a Sunday night on the plains in sweet home Auburn, Alabama. The old Beard–Eaves–Memorial Coliseum was filled with hundreds of freshman that were eagerly awaiting to hear from speakers such as the University’s President Steven Leath, SGA President Jacqueline Keck, Head Baseball Coach Butch Thompson, and celebrity comedian Jeff Foxworthy (pictured below). Each speaker had the chance to give leadership tips and advice on how to optimize their time as students at Auburn University.
So, where did Elevate fit into all of this?
We had the opportunity to not only host the event and handle the run of show, but also engage with the Auburn staff members and students that were in attendance. Our team was welcomed with open arms, enthusiastic conversation, and endless gratitude. In the short, eight hours spent on Auburn’s campus, our team felt fully immersed into the Auburn culture, creed, and family.
Why did it matter that our team fully immersed into the Auburn culture?
Great event hosts create remarkable moments by fully committing to every event
Fully committing to every event means:
- Spending intentional time getting to know your client
- Focusing on building relationships with the guests
- Creating a unique culture and experience fitting for that client/event
- Putting time and effort into the small, yet remarkable, moments
And in true Elevate fashion…
Elevate not only had the opportunity to leave their mark on Auburn University’s campus, but Auburn undoubtedly left their mark on the Elevate team by the way in which we were welcomed into the Auburn Family. The remarkability of Emerge Auburn is something our team will never forget. And with that, there’s not much more to say besides, WAR EAGLE!
