Flor de Luiz is back at the MAC!
Networking works. You’ll recall that Luiz was given an opportunity to do flowers at the Contemporary Art Museum as part of a late-night party event back in July. The photographer at that event saw Luiz’s work and then hired him to do flowers for his commercial booth at a vendor fair.
At that event Luiz got lots of exposure and charmed many a colleague. The producer of that vendor fair later contacted Luiz to do flowers for a corporate event back at the Contemporary Art Museum. It was a no-holds-barred event for physicians and other health care providers to announce the opening of a new state-of-the-art medical clinic in town.
The event was on a Monday night, so the museum bistro space kept the flowers through the week. Just a few days ago Luiz got a call from the manager at Bistro MAC with a referral to a customer who saw his flowers when she went for lunch and wanted to speak with him about an event she has planned in the space.
We like how this is going…
Another connection at the vendor fair called Luiz up to help out with a wedding in Rio a couple weeks ago. Since then he has worked with her on one more wedding, and she has asked him to be with her at two future events in November and January. She started out pretty tight fisted with her compensation, but has since opened up to Luiz’s talents, dependability and dedication to the details. It is turning into a nice partnership.
Next week Luiz will have his flowers at another vendor fair, this one in a more densely populated part of town – so more client eyes will see his work.
Flor de Luiz is growing.
