These also act as excellent shade on the days when the sun is strong. Our events are well-organised and fast-moving, which is a great antidote to a bad weather day, all of which adds to the ‘I was there’ spirit.

Thank you so much for delivering this event so successfully for us.

Our clients were very impressed with your organisation of the event and Simon has asked me to pass on his appreciation for how well you represented the Bank in every aspect of this important day. We were in safe hands, yet enjoyed an exciting day of activities. Guiding us to use Rudding Park was definitely correct! The venue was outstanding and everyone noticed what a good relationship you had with their staff, and how well the event dovetailed together.

All the feedback received from the managers was very positive and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Many thanks again for organising an excellent event for us.

The event seems to have been a huge success and has done the job we set out to do beyond our expectations. There were some common themes throughout the thank you letters. The comments included “hospitality carried out with impeccable organisation”, “the entire event was extremely well organised”, “the organisation and the day itself were both absolutely superb, my compliments to you and all your team and also the event organisers”, “we thought that the whole day ranks as the best corporate event we have been on”

Thanks for all of your support to create such a special day and indeed a second thank you for recognizing Sarah and Damian in particular.

Ultimately in these tough economic times any little that we can give back to employees to help to create some morale, motivation and inspiration cannot be under-estimated.

Thanks again
