Our very own Paul Pollard is one half of the heart of Dreamwave Events. Certainly the calmer influence of our two co-directors; Paul takes everything in his stride. I think good ‘ole William Shakespeare describes him perfectly: “My crown is called content, a crown that seldom kings enjoy.”
Make no mistake, that whilst I describe Paul this way, he absolutely doesn’t lack ambition. Without the driving force of himself and his partner in the business, Dave; Dreamwave Events would definitely not be where it is today.
A snippet about Paul Pollard
Our hairless wonder is indeed a chief ingredient in the day to day running of Dreamwave Events. His secure backbone provides the rudimentary foundations for the team both in the office; out in the field providing DJ entertainment at weddings and parties or building creative lighting installations. Born in North Essex, Paul shared his childhood antics with my now husband. Consequently, after getting to know Paul myself, he and Dave asked me to join them working at Dreamwave following the birth of my sprog lets. A great friend, boss and godfatherly influence to my son; Paul is an individual you certainly want to meet.
Lets find out more…. The interview with Paul Pollard
Since Dreamwave begun, it has quickly evolved into also providing lighting hire weddings and events: What direction do you see DWE going from here?
Dreamwave lighting has evolved quickly since its introduction back in 2015. I think it was the natural progression for us to move into this area of the industry as we are creative with our ideas and always looking for new fresh looks. That said we have our own style which I’ve always felt is a mixture of vintage style with a modern twist. Where from here? The sky’s the limit isn’t it!
What part of the business do you enjoy and why?
To be honest I love the day to day running of the business. No day is the same whether it be on the road, in the office or constructing new concepts in the warehouse. It also helps that I’m working with my best buddies, we have a good laugh along the way and work great as a team!
Could you have imagined when you started Dreamwave with Dave that it would be where it is today? Would you have done anything differently?
To be honest no. I can remember taking on our warehouse and thinking we’ve got to pay for this each month! But we made it work and our hard work has got us to where we are today. I don’t believe in looking back to see if anything would have been done differently, that’s in the past and I just want to look forward to the next chapter.
If Dreamwave Events carries on in it’s current flow, you can take early retirement! On a serious note, where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I wish!!! 10 year’s time…….well…..who knows. We have many ideas going forward for different areas of Dreamwave yet to be released which we are currently working on. So there’s lots to come! Stay tuned!
