Banksmen Training

Posted by on 20 September 2018 | Comments

It is important to us that we ensure our team are trained correctly in order to be able to deliver the highest and safest levels of service to our clients and customers. We recently set up a Banksman Training course at Alexandra Palace with a new provider, and it would appear that the team attending all benefitted significantly and seemed to enjoy themselves. We have also noted Richard Mulcaster, our Head of Safety and Compliance enthusiastic participation, so now know we can call on him when required to support ;).

Watford FC unveil Graham Taylor statue.

Posted by on 23 August 2018 | Comments

A statue of former England manager Graham Taylor has been unveiled at Watford FC's ground. Taylor, who died aged 72 in January 2017, led Watford FC from the Fourth Division to runners-up in the old First Division in five years. The statue was commissioned to recognise his "unparalleled achievements as Watford's greatest ever manager", the club said. It stands outside the Hornets Shop at the club's Vicarage Road ground. The bronze statue took award-winning sculptor Douglas Jennings a year to create.

The Apprenticeship Levy...........How are you using yours ?

Posted by on 23 August 2018 | Comments

When the Apprenticeship Levy was launched, I found it interesting talking to other companies on how they were going to use it as no-one appeared to really understand it. Our own HR Manager at the time indicated the funds could be used to up-skill some of our existing work-force, but neglected to mention the study time that would have to be put in on a weekly basis, which would prove impossible operationally during busy parts of the season. At any rate, that isn't what it was designed to do.

So what a great weekend, and the summer proper feels like its started. Car park and traffic management, security and stewarding, cleaning at yet another Epsom Derby with some great feedback from our clients and numerous Spotlight Award nominations for our staff. Thank you to all of you who supported this great event. But it's not just about The Derby. We had numerous other events  this weekend including Alexandra Palace, Chepstow, Race 4 Life, Towcester Racecourse, Twickenham London Sevens and Wembley Stadium England v Nigeria amongst others, and its the support and management of those that allows the team working The Derby to focus, so well done to all who supported CSP on this busy, hot, long and tiring weekend.  Caring Safe Professional.
