Why Are We Outside Caterers?Posted
Each morning we wake up and head out to do what we do – provide outside catering. Some days this means time in the office spent planning events and weddings, other days it’s heading out across Warwickshire and The Cotswolds to light the fires and cook up wood fired food, and others are spent washing everything back to shiny glory!
Providing outside catering is what we do, how we spend our days is how we do it, but why? It all comes down to connection.
We create spaces where people can connect:
Connect with each other through the sharing of food.
Connect with the food that they are sharing.
Connect with the people that are providing it.
If you’re still with me, then let’s take this a step deeper. Why is connection so important to us?
Happiness and Health.
It feels great to be authentically connected. Being part of a connected community has been shown time and time again to be a key factor in happiness/contentedness/whatever you want to call not feeling sad. Want to know more? Take a look at Happy (2011) on Netflix.
There are also really strong links between connection and health. For example, feeling part of your community has been linked to the strength of your immune system. Sarah Pressman and co linked connectivity and immune response.
Connection is important to us. If it’s important to you then let’s get together and make something magical happen.
I’m not going to take all the credit for this: Simon Sinek’s TED talk a few years ago was the inspiration for this realisation – so thank you Simon!
