After speaking with you about your objectives for your brand or event, we set about carefully hand selecting the perfect crew that will represent your brand with enthusiasm and pride. Each one of our staff has been thoroughly checked prior to beginning work with us, we have reviewed their resumes, photos and have also conducted either a face-to-face or skype interview with them. We speak with each staff member over the phone run through the brief and ensure any questions are answered prior to the event so the crew can hit the ground running and well informed.
How do I know your staff will be well trained to represent my brand?
