James Bonehill Accessibility & Inclusion Manager - Greater Anglia

It has been a genuine pleasure to work with BA Events and Rennie Consulting on the design and delivery of our refresher training. Filming in a live railway environment with frontline teams is always a challenge, but the skill and patience of this team ensured that the final product is slick, professional and, most importantly, emphasises the importance of delivering fantastic service to all our customers, no matter what their personal circumstances are.

Lucy Wootton Head of Grand Railway Collaboration

BA Events are more than just an events company. They really managed the event seamlessy from start to end. They really get under the skin of exactly what it is we need from them and the outputs that we’re looking at for the day. And because they’d done the first event they were familiar with what we did the previous year and worked with us to ensure that we didn’t deliver the same event again. There were some differences to help keep it exciting and rngaging for those that were in attendance. And they also took the pressure off ourselves in terms of their delivery on the day. They brought a lot of energy into the room and they realy got people engaged.

Fay Easton and Vicky Cropper-Clarke Head's of Stakeholder and Community

Working with BA Events brings extra people to your Team.  We always love our time in planning meetings with Luke as he takes the time to understand what we want our audience to take from the experience.  Both Ben and Luke understand how much we value time spent with our Stakeholders & Communities and they share our visions, bringing endless inspiration creativity and can-do spirit to the planning and delivery.  Virtual events have been a revelation this year and attendees have loved the content which has been enhanced by advance video footage and superb event hosting on the day. Event attendees know they are truly valued because of the care invested in the delivery of these events and we are endlessly grateful to these young entrepreneurs for the passion they invest in their craft.

From the outset, their dedication to understanding our company and the purpose of our event was exceptional. They took the time to delve into our brand ethos and event goals, ensuring every aspect of the event aligned seamlessly with our vision.

Throughout the entire process, there was always a dedicated member of their team available for us to contact. Their responsiveness and attentiveness to our needs were unparalleled, providing us with a sense of support and reassurance at every step.

Moreover, the BA Events played a pivotal role in equipping us with the resources needed to effectively market the event. Their collaborative approach and focus on increasing attendee numbers significantly contributed to the success of our event.

On the day of the event, their meticulous planning and coordination ensured everything ran smoothly. From logistics to execution, their team’s expertise was evident, allowing us to fully immerse ourselves in the day knowing that every detail was being taken care of.
