      It would be great to learn a little more and please do tell us about any team members that went the extra mile for you?

      Emma was great throughout the whole process from start to finish and it was an absolutely pleasure to work with her. She went above and beyond and always kept in touch. The only problem was it was a shame that Emma had to leave early, as Emily did not know the answer to our technical question - we wanted to turn up the volume in the main suite and Emily didn't know how to do this. Myself and the speaker worked it out. However, Emily and all the catering team were still very helpful.
