I wanted to drop you a brief note of thanks after what has been deemed a very successful conference.
You have been the consummate professional, inspiring confidence at every stage of the process. Your team were also professional, polite and efficient. I would like to give a special mention to Daniel the catering manager who (like the rest of the staff at King’s) went out of his way to ensure our guests' every need was met. Even the staff in the post room were helpful beyond what would normally be expected.
On the day your AV team dealt with and responded to our needs quickly and efficiently as did your engineers, the cloakroom staff were polite and efficient and once again you were there to ensure the smooth running of the venue including the change overs and the smallest detail.
From our initial meeting with Claire Bellis and the introduction to Harry Warner, to the day of the conference the entire team at King’s venue have been nothing short of amazing! You should all be very proud.
On a personal note your professional attitude and approach helped me deliver the best conference possible and I hope one day to return and run another event, until then I wish you all continuing success.

"EY recently held a corporate social/comedy night at the Greenwood theatre.
The service we received was fantastic, and we felt it was important to recognise the hard work King’s put into organising this fantastic event for us. In particular, Becky Drayton, Harry Warner and John Iveson were instrumental to ensure that the social event was one to remember.
The comedians lined up were a great hit and were very suitable for our corporate event. The venue itself was also excellent – a fully equipped, catered, theatre hidden at the foot of the Shard.
Thank you very much again." November 2014

"Yue and I would like to express our gratitude to everyone at King's College London for making our wedding such a fantastic and memorable occasion. From our first meeting with Claire, we immediately realised we were in very good hands. Claire and her colleague Sally are very friendly and professional, their advice and expertise was invaluable in making all the arrangements and guiding us in our planning.
On the wedding day, Sally didn't stop for a minute - always there in the background watching, waiting and ready to step in as required. We also used the recommended florist. Josef works with the King's regularly and between them offered a seamless service and the quality of the flower arrangements were exceptional. The rooms for our reception and dinner were amazing. The chef and team produced the most wonderful food for the wedding dinner. It was such a relief to find everything looking perfect and running so smoothly. We received so many lovely comments from our guests about what a fantastic day they had, the venue, the food, the team that looked after us and the flowers. Thank you again Claire and Sally!

Just wanted to send you a big thank you for looking after my colleagues and me yesterday. Your venue is stunning and we were very much green with envy. Your attentiveness was much appreciated by all.
Hopefully we will be back soon."

"Hi Harry and Becky,
A massive thanks again for turning around our filming so quickly and so efficiently.
Everything went really smoothly from our point of view; the library will make a great final shot for Bastille Day, let’s hope the film is a success!
It’s great to know that there are locations in London that are willing to take on a request like ours at such short notice and do whatever it takes to make it happen. A lot of places wouldn’t have had the energy to facilitate the request (especially considering the time of year) and it is to your great credit that you were able to help us.
I hope you both have a good Christmas break and hope to see you in the near future,
‘We thought the evening went really well. The food was good, the assistance on the evening was excellent and the lecture theatre was first rate.
Thanks for all your assistance in making this happen, I wouldn’t hesitate in using Kings College again and I hope you can pass on my thanks to all those who assisted on the evening.’

‘"My Organisation recently held an event at your fantastic facility and I felt it appropriate to provide you with feedback on our experience.
The 2 day program was extremely successful, attributable to the excellent execution and service focus of your Operations Team. I felt it important to recognise Rebecca, who was attentive, personable and extremely understanding to our needs. I appreciate that having previously working in the Hospitality Industry, that your roles are extremely demanding and challenging in nature – Rebecca’s warm approach and strong sense of urgency are a credit to your facility!
I hope that this feedback is useful to provide to Rebecca."

"Yesterday went really well thank you. The service we receive is always fantastic - Rebecca & Jessie are exceptionally helpful and can't do enough to make our events run smoothly which is great. Also from previous feedback the reception staff always have our badges set out and ready which ensures a fast entry to the building."
