Thank you

Dear Julie,
Just to say how absolutely magnificently everything went last night. Maurizio was amazingly supportive to me, and so was everyone else. It was quite clear that each person had been carefully trained, and they all did so much to make the whole evening the success it was. The service was superb, and everyone was full of praise for the food, even one very senior television executive who goes to such things all the time. As someone else with lots of experience of entertainment (ex-head of the Publishers' Association) said to me today, "not only delicious food but stylish as well"... I've been enormously impressed by your grip and attention to detail and willingness to do that bit more ... It's little things like always acknowledging e-mails quickly and giving up time to talk, and coming yourself to check that things would be all right."
All my thanks, Helen

Thank you

Dear Tony,

We really can't thank you enough for all your hard work last Friday. The set up and management of the entire day was exceptional, and all the staff were fantastic - helpful, friendly and smiling all day.  It far exceeded my expectations, it really was fantastic.  Many guests also commented on the fabulous service and staff.  As to how you got away in the evening, I don't know....those remaining guests looked pretty settled!

I can't say how impressed we've been with you, Tony, and Bovingdons generally, you're part of a fantastic organisation, and I won't be able to recommend you enough.... we were made to feel as though it was the most important day for everyone involved. 

Thanks again for all your efforts on our behalf - I can honestly say it was the happiest day.

Hopefully paths will cross again, one day.

Warm regards
