Preparation: Contacted again by the Barclays wealth diversity team to organize a Chinese new years event at their head quarters in Canary Warf. Working with the team we gained an idea of the sort of décor they required to portray the theme in mind. Using floor plans, pictures and a limited budget provided by Barclays the Avari team came up with 3 different event ideas and pitched them to the diversity team. We sourced traditional props and fabrics along with entertainment for the event.Once we had agreed on a particular design, our events team had to provide Barclays with a detailed method statement and risk assessment for all the work we will be carrying out.
Day of the event: With such a small timeframe for us to pass security checks, offload and setup the Avari team managed to complete its event brief quickly and safely to our client’s satisfaction.
