STAR FEEDBACK OF THE MONTH

Please extend my gratitude to Cip, Bruno, Cladio and Kingsely they were great on both days, was challenging at times but didn’t have a single complaint, would be happy to have them on any future jobs. Also think Cip makes a great Crew Chief.

Charlie Lloyd @ Inca

As mentioned to George just now, I’d just like to say how great your guys have been on this job in terms of skill, attitude and flexibility. Also the response from your office team was excellent and timely too despite me usually calling/emailing outside office hours. It’s not often we have a need to call crew in as the exhibitor tends to be our Bank Holidays direct client, however this job was for a U.S design agency using mostly their own components and they misled us as to the scope and efficiency of their operation. Hence the late call for carpenters.

We will definitely keep your details and will recommend wholeheartedly to colleagues.

Thanks again,

Francesca @ Lawford Exhibits Ltd

Just wanted to say that the guys yesterday were great, Marcus and his team were fantastic with everything, nothing too much of a problem and just worked great with the rest of our team.

Chris @ Reece Productions Ltd

Just a quick one to say how great the guys were. They all got on with it and made life on site really easy so a big thanks to everyone.

Will @ Qwerk

Apologies for the delay on the feedback for this job. Just wanted to say the guys were great.

Bradley is one of the best crew chiefs I’ve seen. The venue was not event friendly but we managed to make it through.

Please pass on my thanks to them as I didn’t had a chance when the event finished.

Jon @ Kudos

Just a quick note to say thank you. All your crew I’ve had over the last few days have been all top blokes! All really helpful and worked hard
