Client Testimonial

I am writing to give your our most sincere thanks for all the hard work you have done prior to and during the Chinese Aviation event. You have been extremely efficient, accomodating, considerate and effective at responding to the last minute changes. As a result the event was a great success.

Before the dust settles on what was a spectacular City Dinner, I wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all your teams for your dedication, support, hard work, and good humour. Both John and Inga were particularly pleased with the dinner – and the Chairman remarked that it was one of the best City Dinners; as his last, that’s the ultimate compliment to you and all your hard work. Everyone played such an important role in delivering one of our highest profile events – especially all those people behind the scenes that we don’t always get to see, but I wanted to especially thank:

Kay – who always manages to juggle so many things with such grace and ease, she makes something so complicated look so easy. I couldn’t, and probably wouldn’t, do this event without your support and talent.

Terry, Greg, Jamie, Kevin, Bartek, Jo, our magnificent chefs, our waiting staff, our Lloyd’s Waiters, our engineers and the security team on the night and in the run-up (especially on Sunday) thank you for all of your support and professionalism.

It really does take a small village – and what a village we have at Lloyd’s.

Thank you all again.

Just wanted to drop a line to say thank you for the dinner last night. It was delicious and they were all very happy with the whole affair, ambience, setting and food. Thank you to you and your team and the Chefs!

Thank you all for your help with this morning’s PMD event. As you know, the format was changed at the last minute from a meeting to a fully staged event – and your professionalism, teamwork spirit and excellence in what you do helped make it such a great event. The feedback from Inga, Theresa and all involved has been very, very positive. And we get to do it all over again on 1 June. Hooray.  Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved – including Luis, Abraham, Barry and Sergio.

Great teamwork as usual.

Thanks again, Mac
