THE ELF FACTOR AT WISH

We love designing large scale event experiences that allow us to bring our wonderful resources and creative skills together. Our clients often set challenging and unique briefs that take our expertise to another level. These include "Imagine" and "Wish" at Fota Island Resort which saw over 100,000 visitors young and old enjoy an immersive, magical, interactive Christmas experience. The Irish Examiner sent over their most promising prospect Jane O'Faherty to "Wish" to see if she had what it took to become the ultimate Elf for our special Christmas event.

""We want the best calibre," said Olivia. "We're searching the country for the best elves!".

On the lookout for this year's elves for Fota Island were Seamus Leahy, director of marketing at the resort and Olivia Buckley of Olivia Buckley Events. They had already auditioned around 380 people in Cork - less than half of that number will eventually be selected. After my own audition, they told me exactly what they wanted in their Yuletide assistants. "We want the best calibre," said Olivia. "We're searching the country for the best elves." "It's somebody who really understands children, who understands families and just wants to have fun," said Seamus. "It's OK just to be a little bit naughty - just a little bit, mainly nice. But a bit of mischievousness is alright too."
