The Square Metre have had the pleasure of working with Envisage Promotions who recently launched Envisage Security Staff.
This new venture gives Envisage the opportunity to hire security staff, event stewards and parking marshals to its clients – growing into new markets and expanding their portfolio. Over the past 9 years Envisage Promotions has seen its business evolve and grow in many areas introducing different services for its clients.
Security hire is an area Director, Lee Murphy, has wanted to progress into for some time; “The reason we have delayed the launch of Envisage Security Staff was simply because we wanted to get it right. The security industry is complex and we take very seriously the advice we give our clients. If we cant do something better than another business, then we educate ourselves so we have the knowledge and skills to be better than our competitors.”
“We want to be the UK’s number 1 provider for all event security staff and to do that we need to offer a customer service experience that will WOW our clients. The WOW factor comes from delivering a first class service coupled with excellent knowledge.”
To aid his staff and arm them with the knowledge they need Lee made the decision to invest heavily in training and appointed The Square Metre to put together a bespoke training package for all the Envisage team. Everyone in Envisage had to attend the training so all the team were educated in the same subjects, to the same level, at the same time.
“It was a big investment but it was worth every penny” explained Lee. “The training delivered by The Square Metre was just phenomenal, they were amazing to work with and the rewards for our team in terms of knowledge was just amazing, I could not have wished for more.”
The training was delivered by seasoned crowd safety pro Roy Wise. Roy has been working with crowds for three decades and has had experience at all levels of crowd management, he joined The Square Metre in mid-2017 as Head of Operations for Crowd Safety Training for the North of England.
Andy Hollinson, Chief Executive Officer at The Square Metre, said it was extremely refreshing to see a business take the training of its staff so seriously, “It’s great to see all the steps Envisage are taking to ensure they have the necessary knowledge before embarking on this expansion. It was clear throughout the training this is a business that takes what they do very seriously and we just know they will be a huge success. We look forward to seeing them grow and develop with the mission they have to be the UK’s number 1.”
