Rachel Evans Stakeholder Engagement Manager (Interim) - West Midlands Rail Executive

We commissioned BA Events because from the outset they got fully immersed into understanding what the GRC wanted to achieve from this event. They demonstrated professionalism and commitment at every stage to maximise benefits and outcomes for both the GRC and event stakeholders. BA Events were pivotal to making the event a very successful GRC launch and the proof was in the electric and positive atmosphere on the day. The after event care by BA Events was also brilliant.

Sam Uren Engineering Director - SLC Rail

We’ve worked with BA Events for many years and we’re always impressed with Luke’s creativity, enthusiasm and drive. 2020 was a difficult year where we had to adapt our organisation quickly to remote working and introduce new digital tools and technologies. What has made this easier for us was working with a company like BA Events, who consistently came up with ideas to increase employee engagement and has made it possible for us to run our events schedule online. Luke has enabled us to keep the SLC culture alive and stay connected with each other.

Sam Uren Engineering Director - SLC Rail

BA Events are unique, inventive and dynamic. They provided SLC Rail with an Away Day with a difference. Staff feedback was exceptional. Thank you BA Events.

Tracy Stevenson Community Development Assistant - ScotRail

Needing to move our event online this year posed a challenge for us, thankfully a colleague introduced us to BA Events. From that first introduction, we were comfortable that Luke and Ben understood our vision for the event and the sentiment we wished to convey to our volunteers and partners. There are extremely knowledgeable about the use of online platforms, taking time with us to explain the process and the benefits of different aspects of the system made the decision process much easier. Their passion and enthusiasm towards helping us to host this event is the reason the event was a huge success.

Louise Collins Director - Transport Focus

BA Events injected fresh, creative thinking to the design of these workshops which was just what we wanted. They worked closely and collaboratively with us on the planning stages to ensure everything went smoothly. We were particularly impressed by the professional facilitation of the events which put delegates at ease to get the best contribution from them. Overall, working with BA Events helped us to make these workshops a real success.
