Ride London 2017
Date Posted | 19/08/2017
Ride London, the largest cycling event in the world saw Wise Security as one of the selected Crowd Management Companies overseeing a Key Sector of the course!
After an in depth Tendering process it was felt that the strength in depth relating to our experience and much more within the London Area played a key factor in the decision making process, “and boy did we not let them down”!
Prior to the event our staff were provided with pre-event information via their unique Staff Portal, consisting of detailed information relating to the event which greatly contributed towards the preparation and in turn the staff’s positive work performance.
Braving the torrential rain, our team gathered at 3am in the morning where they were issued with their food packs along with their briefing documents prior to being transported to their selected work place destination.
Upon their arrival our Sector Managers and Supervisors delivered detailed briefings fully outlining all key information relating to their duties, which were inclusive but not limited to the following: Road Closures, Pedestrian Crossing Points, Crowd Control, Traffic Management and Roving Security.
Our Managing Director who attended the event had this to say: I believe that our involvement with an event of this magnitude speaks volumes in relation to our creditability and strong reputation in the Industry. To be involved in such an iconic event is a great feeling and thanks to the all of the staff’s hard work and dedication it was most satisfying to learn from Ride London Management that we have been confirmed for the next 2 Years given the surperb work performance displayed.
Overall the event was a major success and despite the early morning rain the staff throughly enjoyed themselves and look forward to being back next year.
