Event Planning: Controlling Expenses for a New Year

Event Planning: Controlling Expenses for a New Year

Sep 16, 2013

September is a good time to start thinking about next year before the excitement and busyness of the holiday season begins. Here are some cost and time saving things to think about as you plan your new year.

1. Time Management  – TIME is MONEY. As much as things change, this is still true. In order for your business to grow you have to carve out time to make and implement growth plans. If you find yourself always working on client tasks it is going to be hard for your business to grow. Look for opportunities to delegate.  Schedule time to work on your business in the same way you schedule time for clients. Compare and analyze growth potential against investment of hiring, marketing and equipment cost.

Summer Events: Keeping Your Crew Cool and Your Setups Seamless

Summer Events: Keeping Your Crew Cool and Your Setups Seamless

Aug 9, 2013

Professional event managers should add “Magician” to their title. If you have been involved in an event setup, you know unexpected issues always come up, finishing on time is challenging and there is at least one great “if only you knew” story the client never hears about.  Event setups are even more intense during the summer when temperatures are high.

Here are Five “Keep it Cool” Event Setup Tips:

This floor plan was created with socialtables.com.

Staging and Mapping – Map out everything! Create a map that designates staging areas, where supplies and tools will be, where deliveries should drop off and ultimately where everything goes in final setup. Distribute the map to the crew with emphasis on supply and tool areas. Nothing heats up frustration more than being assigned to a task and not being able to find the tools you need to complete the task. Be sure to have the right quantity of tools based on workers required to complete assignments. Instruct the crew to return tools and supplies to designated areas when they are done with them. This will also make clean up easier.

Grosh is 80 Years Old!

Feb 17, 2012

What makes Grosh special? We believe our unique history plays a part.

In 1932, Robert Louis Grosh founded R.L. Grosh and Sons Scenic Studios in Hollywood California.


Years before, Robert Grosh had an interest in the Theater and began his career cleaning paint brushes and buckets for Armbruster Studios in Columbus Ohio.  Beginning in his teens, he learned the trade, became a painter, and advanced to journeyman scenic artist.

Fitness At Work

Fitness At Work

Administrative Assistant Nicole Lenander is on her way to starting a new health regime after having her baby boy, Dominic Wolf.

The weather is warming up, and maybe after work is done at 5pm, you feel as if you have already had your workout for the day?  That may be because you are mentally fatigued, but a little extra push during your workday is all that you really need to increase your drive to stay physically active.

At Grosh, we are often busy at our desks from early morning to late evening, servicing clients in all time zones throughout the US and Canada.  Though there are many great cafes and restaurants near by our home office in Silverlake (Hollywood), let’s be real.   A walk to consume calories during lunch breaks, is just not a walk at all!
