Pinnacle Event Staff celebrate their continued working relationship with Microsoft

Pinnacle Event Staff celebrate having the world’s largest software maker, Microsoft, as one of their clients.

Microsoft have offices throughout the UK – Thames Valley Business Park, Reading, Paddington, Liverpool Street, London and Edinburgh. Pinnacle Event Staff provide event professionals to oversee both internal and external events for Microsoft and their exclusive partners on a weekly basis.

Our event support team oversee and manage the events taking place at these locations and act as the main point of contact for the Microsoft partner. The role of the team leader involves looking after up to five different events at once and coordinating the team to ensure the presenters have everything they need, catering runs to time and all events run smoothly, as well as any additional ad hoc duties that might occur throughout the day. Due to us providing regular staff for Microsoft, our event support team take part in an onboarding process so that they are familiar with the strict standards that Microsoft have in place.

2019 saw the relationship grow with Pinnacle Event Staff providing event professionals for the Executive Briefing Centre (EBC) at the Paddington Office, a small intimate event space for high level executives. Microsoft use the EBC for executive training courses and Pinnacle Event Staff run the facility on the day, welcome delegates, check-in and show staff to the relevant room.

“The relationship that we have built with Microsoft over the years is really important to us. We are proud to be the preferred supplier of event support staff for Microsoft offices throughout the UK. The new role of providing event professionals to the EBC at Paddington means once again, our staff can assist Microsoft with their event needs on a regular basis and shows the relationship is still growing,” says Elisa Drummond, Director at Pinnacle Event Staff.

“I have worked with Pinnacle for a number of years and have always found Nicola and Elisa fair and approachable as employers. They care about their staff which brings a great team atmosphere when working and creates a pleasurable work environment,” says Suzanne Martell Team Leader TVP Reading.

“I just wanted to say thank you to Pinnacle and the team for the incredible work this week. The customer has been blown away by the support Suzanne and team have offered going above and beyond to make sure over 60 customers from over the world have had everything they need. The feedback has been overwhelming and given this is the first time we have hosted this event, to get this feedback is so fantastic for Microsoft and the team. Thanks again- we really appreciate it” Microsoft Partner.
