“I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for organising such wonderful onsite staff for our event. All the temporary staff worked so well and were so professional and I cannot praise them enough. In the past I have had so many issues with external staff which makes my job so much harder, however, over the last three days we really did not have any issues and all of the Gartner staff were truly impressed with every single one of them. I would love to have every single one of them back for our next events.”
