you have to worry about how not to
endanger yourself and your staff."
Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, Mutton
has enjoyed spending a little more time on
jobsites getting his hands dirty. "We have
made stafϐing cuts across the board this
year, but you feel those cuts a little more
on the operations side of things when you
have a big project going along with normal
everyday events," he says. "I'm grateful
for a phenomenal core staff through this
COVID nightmare and have to give a huge
shout out to Alishya Leburg on our sales
team who handled almost all customer
interactions for this project, which allowed
me to focus on executing the installation."
With staff stepping up to do what
needed to be done, and clients who were
willing to be ϐlexible and creative, the event
went smoothly and was a huge success.
"It was one of those events that just came
about-and we quoted it, but we were so
pessimistic about any job happening at
that point because so many people were
canceling," Mutton says. "So we found
ourselves in this dance of not wanting to do
a lot of legwork until we had all deposits
but also really wanting the work.
"We've gotten more positive response
from this than we have from other previous events because there's not as much
going on-and not as much to talk about
outside of COVID-19."
