Global Guardian 'Sober Sister'

From the moment our Guardians step on board their flight till the last person checks out of the hotel, the Global Guardian team are on duty and off the alcohol. We know right, a scary thought! Imagine being the only people (excluding cievents) to witness Global Gathering through clear goggles instead of beer goggles...We sat down for a chat with Tanya Cavuoto, Head Guardian, to see what dirt we could dig up but she's kept it pretty tight lipped. Check it out here!

How many Global Gatherings have you done as a Guardian?

To look after the wellbeing of our Global attendees and make sure they are safe as they celebrate over a huge, fun filled weekend!

What kind of training or preparation is involved in being a GG?

To be part of the team ideally you need to be in the company 5+ years, have been to a global before and have had some experience working with large groups of people. You also need to be prepared for little or no sleep over the entire weekend, some days you might end up working 22 out of 24 hours. A typical day could start at 7am and it might not be until 4am the next day that you are laying down for some sleep!

What's the overall reaction of our people to your presence?

Genuine happiness, kindness and appreciation of our help!

What's the funniest thing you've been asked to do?

Take someone's passport back to their hotel room - while they kept partying! They were concerned they would lose it so asked if I could take it for them.

What's the most awkward?

In true Guardian form...I won’t disclose this information :)

What's the most disgusting, disturbing, gory (you choose the style) thing you've witnessed?

Someone trying to eat a XXXL Burger from FatBurger in the MGM Grand hotel lobby the morning after the Friday night, well technically it was part of the night before as they were still dressed in their Friday night attire...it didn't end well for all involved!
