Visual Architects: Exploring Visual Identity

Visual Architects

In this very interesting interview, Manchester-based Lefteris Angelidis and host James Dickson discuss how social media is driving change in events’ visual identity. They discuss the likely impact of the Metaverse, creativity and the structure/longevity of set items.

The sustainability question spawns conversation about branding solutions for ‘off the shelf’ products, bean bags and recycling polystyrene, transport – vehicle cost and emissions – and electric vans’ reach limitations.

They go on to talk about LED screen technology, 3D mapping, creativity versus budgets, planning, Beyonce and more.

I completely agree with Lefteris that events should be fully sensory experiences. Audiences really appreciate full immersive experiences.

He mentions sustainability driven culture where it’s really important that we are not just throwing away and discarding materials after one use and how much you are working with your clients now on that balance between sustainability and the desire from the client to actually evolve and do something different every year.

The trend that we’re seeing at the moment is that eco-friendly and sustainability is becoming a must for event organizers. A lot of clients come to them because they don’t want somebody to make them something bespoke and then after that they throw it in the garbage. I love that this company is constantly scouring Facebook Marketplace and other places to find items that they can add to their full warehouse of different themes that they utilize again and again then also refurbish them. It’s a massive benefit for companies to be able to go somewhere and choose something off the shelf because they know that they are playing their part to help the planet. Other things they do like repainting and reusing carpets and fabrics with water based paints are a fantastic idea.

Lefteris also spoke about creating smaller VIP experiences. For a Beyonce concert event, they created a special VIP area in front of the stage where it looked like you’re going to a club in the 70s with the full disco theme and bar. They make something exclusive and only available to a small amount of people. There seems to be a trend toward smaller event where people can socialize with their friends and have more interaction.

It’s worth having a listen to this full 30 minute interview loaded with interesting and inspiring information.

Glassdoor Company Reviews Examples

How to Respond to Glassdoor Company Reviews

When you have received a bad review from an employee, you should first respond to the study. Try to respond personally, and do not use generic language. This will only make you appear uninterested in the feedback. Instead, use the language the reviewer used to describe their experience. It will be apparent that the employer has done its homework. If you respond in this way, you can get your employees to write positive reviews.


It’s important to note that you can’t publish reviews that name people. If the reviewer mentions an employee’s name or other personal information, they can’t be published. You can challenge the thinking, and it’ll be removed. If it’s a false review, report it. You will also want to avoid naming anyone. The reviewer has no right to be able to use profanity.


You can respond to a negative review by identifying the reviewer. This can be done by clicking the red flag icon or checking the box indicating that the judgment violates the Glassdoor community guidelines. You can also contact the employer to explain why the reviewer should change the thinking when challenging a negative thought. Be sure to respond promptly. You will want your employees to feel like they have been heard.


When responding to a Glassdoor review, you can help your employees feel better about working at your company. If an employee is unhappy, reply to the study in a way that addresses their concerns. While it isn’t easy to do, it can make a massive difference in the perception of your company. When you respond in a polite, respectful manner, you will ensure that your employees are pleased with their job and the company they work for.



Glassdoor is a website where employees can leave anonymous reviews of companies. Its popularity means that it is a popular place to post reviews. Its ratings are unbiased, and users can post any comments that they feel are helpful. For example, MoneyLion’s Director of Call Center Operations has responded sincerely and thoughtfully to a reviewer. While this may seem counter-intuitive, it can profoundly impact the company’s employee experience.


In addition to the company’s reputation, Glassdoor reviews can be helpful to job seekers. By responding to a reviewer’s concerns, Glassdoor can humanize your business and create a connection. While it may be tempting to ignore a bad


review, it is essential to recognize that most of these reviews are exaggerated and may not be entirely unbiased. However, if a job candidate sees positive feedback about a company, they are more likely to want to apply there.


Some Glassdoor reviews are more honest than others. A company should not ignore bad reviews, even if they are negative. A company’s response is critical to its reputation. If a reviewer takes their time to respond, it can improve the company’s overall impression. It will also improve the chances of future employees applying to the company. A positive response will enhance the reputation of a company. It will show the prospective employee that the company is open to feedback.



The most effective way to respond to a negative review is to engage the company’s employees. While a company may want to ignore a negative review, it may also help know that it is not as bad as it seems. For example, a good Glassdoor company review will be the one that is positive and makes the employer look better. If it is not, it will hurt the company’s reputation on Glassdoor. Then, the next time an employee has a negative review, it will be easy to make a positive one.


Glassdoor is an excellent source for company reviews. The site allows employees to write reviews about the company they work for. In addition, Glassdoor will enable employees to write a single review per year, unlike many other review sites. This helps the employer prevent multiple studies published on the same page. In addition, it gives potential candidates social proof about a company and can help decide if they’d like to apply for the position.


How to Structure Employee Reviews

Employee reviews

One way to improve employee reviews is to use a structured approach to give constructive feedback. For example, before giving performance reviews, write a note that covers the main points and uses bullet points. Try to identify patterns and give examples to illustrate your points. After providing the review, summarize the discussion and begin placing your observations for the following review. You can also ask your employees how they would rate you on these qualities. By following these guidelines, you’ll provide the most helpful feedback possible.
