As some of you will know, we sell our products all over the world through shopping TV channels such as QVC. Last month was Rachael’s (our TV Product Demonstrator) first appearance on TVSN, an Australian shopping TV channel.
I asked Rachael to write a blog about her time in Australia for us, and here is what she got up to:
“Last month I had my first visit to TVSN. This also meant my first ever visit to Sydney, Australia which I was very excited about! The schedule was destined to be grueling with 5am alarm clocks and late night returns to the hotel. Nevertheless, I was determined to steal a few hours to see the sights. We arrived late Saturday morning and weren’t due in the studio until first thing Sunday, so there was my perfect window.
The rest of the day remained focussed on the airings with a pause in the evening for that earlier abandoned Subway sandwich! There was also an acknowledgement of the ginormous, chaotic pile of storage boxes which at some point we would have to seriously sort out before we left on Tuesday.
We got back to the hotel late that night and it was lights out at 11:30pm before another 5am alarm clock. Due to a mixture of jet lag, mistimed hunger and anticipation for my first live airing in Australia, I totaled two and a half hours sleep that night. But the human body is an amazing thing and the remaining two days were filled with bursts of adrenaline in front of the camera, bizarre mealtimes, a burst water main, trips to numerous retail outlets in search of the “right” storage boxes and the blood and sweat which was shed (literally!) in getting them packed.
