Work Experience Feedback

Thank you for all you have done for me in giving me a summer job during Wings & Wheels. I had a fantastic time and so many new experiences – including a flight in a helicopter and a ride in an Aston Martin - and introductions to many interesting people. Thank you also for all your support and for giving my family and I tickets for the most amazing Air Show! I am sure there are things I have forgotten to mention and thank you for – including on-site accommodation and transport - but if there is anything I can do to repay the many kindnesses shown to me this summer please let me know. Hannah Fisher


First of all I just wanted to say the biggest thank you. Thank you for having me and thank you for looking after me for over a week and a half. I really appreciate you taking me on especially at such short notice and making sure that I was comfortable, fed and entertained. I have learnt so much over the past week and a half, being around all of you I have picked up so much and learnt so much. You have all been so brilliant and such a good laugh to be around, and it has been so nice to be welcomed into such a friendly and refreshing office. I have learnt a lot more about the different areas within event management and it has provided me with a better understanding regarding which type of event management I want to go into. If you ever need or want some help in the future I will happily be on the next train down to help in any way I can. Again thank you for everything you have done for me and the experience I have gained. Kind regards Niall Kelly

A big thank you to you and all the team for a brilliant job. Even in rain or shine your enthusiasm shone through. It really doesn't get any better than this. From a purely personal point of view, I want to thank you for providing an ideal break from the strain of recalcitrant Architects and boring Quantity Surveyors, for a few days [of] walking miles and miles in the sunshine, having a laugh with a fresh (and young) new team and [being] given straight orders. I was totally knackered at the end but really enjoyed it. I also have to say a big thank you for all you did for Niall. He loved it and totally made up his mind that this is what he wants to do. He said he wanted to be just like you! Off to Goodwood in a few weeks' time to see how far short they fall of mighty Dunsfold. My warmest regards Martin Kelly
