If you want your guests looked after... look after your staff! Ensure that they are paid well.
Never lose sight of the fact that we're in the party business! And that's all about fun, and creating lasting memories. Smile and your staff will smile with you... Often your staff have more contact with your guests than you do and they can really influence the atmosphere. We believe that staff should be courteous, observant, not over familiar, attentive and, perhaps above all, should be reactive and able to improvise because events are full of surprises!
However well trained the staff are, if you do not let them know what is going on they will not know what to do or when to do it. The better you brief the staff the better the service that you will get!
You need the peace of mind that your staffing partner is dependable and delivers the level of service that you require. We aim to build strong and lasting relationships with our clients that enables us to really understand their needs. Longest standing client - 28 years.
Without a doubt the Carphone Warehouse Ball. 415 staff looking after 4,500 guests until 7:30 in the morning. Smallest... one member of staff.

There have been a few but it has got to be Kill Bill 1! That said Elizabeth Hurley and 'That Dress' at the Four Weddings and a Funeral premiere is certainly up there.
Bit mad this one, but some years back we sent a bar team to Mumbai for the opening of a Louis Vuitton store. They arrived, set up, served, jumped in a cab and came home. They were in India for less than 8 hours!
There have been a few ranging from one that is a little grumpy and one that takes creativity to a whole new level! But our clear favourite has to be Raymond Blanc... charming.... calm and supremely talented.
It is a close one. Either dressing up as a naval officer and going by the name of Nelson for John Paul Getty Jr. Or possibly standing outside Tiffany's in Old Bond Street holding a tray of champagne wearing a white shirt, black bowtie and a pink tutu!
