Interview with naOmi jOnes... serious about her business but passionate about what she does!!
How would you Answer
What is a 'bind point' ?
What does 'tweaking' mean in relation to flowers?
What does stripping mean in relation to flowers?
How many days before should you prepare your flowers?
From small beginnings as a 'learn on the job' florist at the age of 15 naOmi jOnes became Managing Director of a Floral Design Company which catapulted into specialising in Corporate and Event Design in Sydney, Australia for 10 years. The company had anything from budget events to 'no budget' events, designing for Celebrities, high end Corporate clients and Event Organisers, working with some of the best in the business.
Naomi then merged over into sharing her knowledge and began teaching about 4 years ago for a Private Florist School in Sydney. Her enthusiastic approach to floristry is a little off the grid to a strict curriculum, she believes that its not just about technique or something you learn out of a book formatted for everyone, but about exploring and discovering flowers from a different perspective... Learning the skills is one thing but learning what your individual style is and developing it, is where the skills pay off... this is about learning to trust your instincts and taking risks.
Having the privilege of spending her life doing what she loves, she now shares her passion for flowers and design with others.. inspiring them to do what they love! "Its a Passion not a Job!" ... this has been her moto! She never stops discovering ... When she achieved the next level, she just changes it up! Teaching is her 'next level' of changing it up and is now 'passing it on'!!
Let me share my knowledge and skills with you!
