Friends and Family gather for Nova Noel 10

As each year comes to an end, our Friends and Family gather for Nova Noel. Meeting up a final time at our HQ, the historic DTSP venue NOVA 535, for our Nova Noel, wild annual holiday party. December 28, 2017 brought us our 10th Nova Noel, each one filled with special memories and unique moments that can only be concocted by the combo of Entrepreneurs, small business owners, Santa time and plenty of alcohol. Nova Noel 10 certainly didn’t disappoint. Laughs, zaniness, gorgeous ladies swinging from the rafters and Santa strutting his stuff, all while we enjoyed the delicious beats of DJ MEGA and the tasty, healthy food from Chef Ray Milton. Luckily I hired photographer Ann Coffman to capture all of our madness, so I could spend more time zipping around spreading our unique ESC holiday cheer!

Santa is Real! St. Pete Santa, played by Ross Tarr, is fantastic! He makes it so easy, and fun, to believe in Santa! But even Santa has his limits, and when you offer up the dazzling, gorgeous spinning duo of Bell_ah and Mayven Missbehavin, of course Santa wants to enjoy the party!

Michael Novilla

Born on April Fools Day in St. Pete, Florida, I’ve always loved learning, exploring, and making things better. Since completing my MBA in 1993, I’ve bought, renovated, and leased over a hundred historic buildings. Along the way, I realized my hometown deserved a unique event space, so I built a world class venue called NOVA 535, which I’ve run since 2008. In the process, I developed “The NOVA Way”, a system of continuous improvement for business.In 2009, needing the company of like-minded folks, I created the Entrepreneur Social Club, a network of business owners from around the world who meet every Thursday to collaborate, mentor, and share knowledge. Now, traveling around the world (65 countries and counting), I’m using the expertise I’ve gained from throwing over a thousand 5 star weddings, parties, and events to consult with business owners worldwide, showing them how to achieve world class service and operations in their business. My first book “It’s 5AM Go Home!” gives step by step guidance on how to throw amazing events, and the soon to be launched Customer Service College will provide formal coursework for business owners who want to achieve 5 star service.I’ve discovered we all face the same problems, and that when we work together, we all win. So let’s work together!Michael@MichaelSNovilla.com
