CEO of Evolution Event Solutions Discusses Her Role as One of Nashville Business Journal’s 2020 Women of Influence
Falon Veit Scott, founder and CEO of EES, was recently named to the Nashville Business Journal’s 2020 Women of Influence list. Check out this interview with Falon that ran in the Nashville Business Journal:
If you had to live in another historical era, which would you choose, and why?
The zeal for life, carefree mindset and intense positivity founded in the decade of the roaring ‘20s would be my pick, hands down.
If you could have any question answered, what would you ask?
What’s next? I’m ready.
What is a new habit you’ve developed during the Covid-19 crisis you plan to maintain?
Personally, I am cooking more healthy meals, working out more and allowing myself time for reflection, creative thinking and writing.
What is one guilty pleasure you indulge in to relax?
Being a woman who doesn’t ever stop moving, sleep is my greatest indulgence. And, when sleeping, I prefer those super long, mid-afternoon weekend naps, with the windows open and a nice breeze flowing.
Most repeated advice:
Do what you say you are going to do.
What do you want this generation of women to be known for?
Crashing through all gender biases, becoming the leaders we were born to be.
Who would play you in a movie about your life, and what would the movie be called?
Jennifer Lawrence, starring in “Why Not?”; a movie about one woman’s quest to live life to its fullest.
How has the Covid-19 pandemic changed the way you’ll do business going forward?
We have been using Covid-19 as a way to better ourselves both personally and professionally. Within Evolution Event Solutions, we are sharpening processes, earning new skillset certifications and adjusting our work day to start at 10 am so that we can all have a little more “me time” in the mornings.
Biggest industry change/how you’ve adapted:
Hospitality is a top industry here in Nashville, and because of the growth of the city, we are seeing unprecedented levels of employment within our industry. At EES, we have to hire hard and retain even harder.
