When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. In this very special episode, we talk to an Australian business whose company along with many others in the event industry was abruptly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet rather than rest on their laurels, this dynamic team led by Jeremy Fleming took bold action and drastically transformed what they do and how they do it. What happened next is nothing short of incredible.Jeremy Fleming is the Managing Director of Stagekings, the company responsible for some of the most well-known temporary event structures of the past 5 years. Building stages and sets like the Opening Ceremony at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, the set for Ninja Warrior, the replica Edinburgh Castle at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo in Sydney, Shakespeare’s Pop up Globe Theatre in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth, Ultra Music Festival, and the Adelaide 500 Concert Stage.Jeremy is currently navigating Stagekings through the most difficult time the event industry has experienced, since the outbreak of Covid-19. Seeing a chink in the supply chain he has pivoted the staging business to manufacture work from home office furniture, and now return to work office furniture, to fill the gap in the market and keep Stagekings in business. By doing this he has reemployed staff, as well as employing many more out of work event crew to help in the manufacturing of the IsoKing desk range. On top of this Stagekings has raised over $25,000 for Support Act – the Heart and Hand of Australian Music, through the sales of the desks.Please enjoy this episode of Agile Ideas with Stage Kings & IsoKings founder Jeremy Fleming.Please see their website for more information: WWW.STAGEKINGS.COM.AUThank you for listening to this podcast.
