Interview Conducted by Pronto Pro Magazine:
Neena Davis Davis, born in Sierra Leone (Africa), has been on the fantastic island of Gran Canaria for 34 years, where she has always felt very welcome. Thanks to the efforts of her family, she was able to study the career she wanted: administration and business management, hence her vocation to undertake. She has always liked to organize parties since she was a teenager, and her friends laughed saying that she was always organizing something.
Years later, she continues with that passion and after graduating she started working in the family business, and there she was in various departments, the last position was in business management for several years. After working in the family business, she decided to start a new professional career, first in a hotel, being able to organize and manage different types of events, weddings, wedding anniversaries, birthdays and others of various kinds.
This is a job that you are passionate about, it makes you creative and happy. This was one of the reasons that prompted her to create her own company, her company is called Neena Davis Weddings & Events, but behind this name there is a great human team. All the suppliers you work with, such as the designer, photographer, videographer, catering, florist, hairdresser, makeup artist, image and sound and all the team involved in a wedding or any other event that they organize, are great professionals and care a lot about their clients, since they are like a big family.
They are also part of her team, although they do not work in her company, her friends and her partner, who is her unconditional support. Neena explains that her employment has been subject to changes such as the type of weddings, since now there are fewer traditional weddings , fewer links around the church and more symbolic celebrations in which couples use their imagination and wedding planners help develop that creativity by contributing their experience. The latest change has come due to the Covid-19 pandemic, as many grooms have postponed their weddings to the years 2021 or 2022 and wedding professionals have put all their understanding at the disposal of those grooms who have been forced to change the date of the most important day of their lives. There is no doubt in addition to the losses that all those in her sector have suffered, although all agree that the health of couples and their families is paramount. The reason that pushes her to fulfill her day-to-day job is because she loves her job, even if it sounds cliché. Every day she wakes up with a new idea and dream.
