This Tradie HQ episode is the premiere of the 'Meet the Members' podcast series. In today's episode, my guest speakers are Aldo Sal Margio, Dylan Splatt and Kyle Bailey from Cyclus. Leading Cyclus’ operations and loyal site crew are directors Aldo Margio, Dylan Splatt and Kyle Bailey.Their interest in events began in their late teens when they were DJs and club promoters. This interest developed into a passion and this passion quickly led them to start their own promotion company and volunteer at various touring festivals to gain more knowledge and experience.During this time they were approached by the City of Joondalup to help them build their events. They had noticed their strong work ethic, their enthusiasm and success – and they’re pleased to be able to call them their client ever since. They continued to progress within the nightclub scene but focused their attention on the bigger picture; executing large scale outdoor events.Now six years later in 2020, their client base has grown to a national base and they have supported 100's of successful concerts, festivals and sporting events. Listen as they explain their story, how they dealt with Covid and what the future holds!Links:Cyclus Website:

Sponsored by Kennerlys, this interview with the CEO - Lejo, briefly covers the various stimulus packages from the State and Federal Governments before delving into strategies around dealing with clients, staff and cashflow leading up to, during and after the events we are faced with in relation to the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic.The key take away from this interview is communication, whether thats with your clients, team, creditors or family it is paramount that you as the leader of your business, team and family consider your current position, what the future may look like and what your plans are for the future.There is a lot of noise, and a lot of armchair experts - filter out the irrelevant information and only act on what will directly affect you and your interests, getting involved in actions that will be of zero benefit will be tiresome and frivolous.If you are interested in the spreadsheet that Lejo mentioned then send an email to Kennerlys here and ask. Similarly if you need advice, reach out and ask.
