In 2016, the Student Loans Company commissioned Speakeasy as their sole supplier for all audio-visual requirements across an annual programme of events across England, Wales and Scotland.
The programme includes a week-long student support seminar with multiple break-out rooms for 500 delegates and a series of one-day seminars in Plymouth, Leeds, London and Stratford-upon-Avon to share insight on SLC’s Advanced Learner Loans product.
Speakeasy’s role includes set design, the creation of a bespoke ‘information hub’ installation; generating graphics and artwork and providing digital touchscreens and signage.
We use initial site visits to specify the AV requirement for each event, and then continually monitor our approach for potential service improvements or efficiencies.
As part of the SLC contract, we complete internal post-event reports that are reviewed at our weekly production catch-ups. Any suggested improvements are then discussed with our production team and presented at our monthly client contact meeting,
We’re all about achieving the impossible, so it was very reassuring to work with a production team whose aims for a successful event matched our own. You went out of your way to ensure that the event ran smoothly with rigorous pre-production planning and effective trouble-shooting on the day.
