Purvis Marquee Hire have refined our approach to not just meet but exceed the needs of events across the UK. Our journey has been shaped by understanding that at the heart of every successful event lies a combination of key skills and qualities. They include:

1. The Foundation of People Skills

Our story begins with the cornerstone of event management: people skills. Our work involves engaging with a diverse range – from C-level executives and government officials to the attendees that bring an event to life. The ability to forge strong relationships, navigate conflicts, and negotiate with grace that sets us apart. We’ve found that success in this arena is not just about managing events; it’s about managing expectations, emotions, and connections. 

2. Flexibility: The Purvis Pivot

Adaptability is our superpower. The Purvis Pivot, as we call it, embodies our readiness to transition from leadership roles to hands-on tasks with ease. Whether it’s a last-minute change in layout or an unforeseen weather challenge, our team’s flexibility ensures that the show not only goes on but shines.

3. Listening: The Heartbeat of Success

Listening is where the magic happens. It’s through attentive, empathetic listening that we truly grasp our clients’ visions and expectations. It is particularly crucial when translating industry jargon into tangible, awe-inspiring experiences. We actively engage with our clients and stakeholders, to ensure that every event is a reflection of their aspirations.

4. Organisational Mastery

At Purvis, our organisational skills are the scaffolding upon which events are built. From meticulous planning to seamless execution, we juggle multiple elements simultaneously to ensure every detail is accounted for. Our approach includes comprehensive checklists, innovative software tools, and a proactive delegation strategy, all designed to bring our clients’ visions to life.

5. Passion: The Purvis Spark

Our passion is the spark that ignites creativity and drives us to conquer challenges. It’s what keeps us calm under pressure and deeply committed to delivering memorable experiences. It is not just about loving what we do; it’s about why we do it – to create moments that linger in the hearts of attendees long after the event concludes.

6. Communication: The Purvis Dialogue

Clear, confident communication is the thread that binds our team and our projects. It ensures that everyone is aligned with the event’s objectives. Our approach fosters an environment of respect and collaboration, where feedback is welcomed, and every voice is valued.

7. Calmness Under Pressure

In the eye of the event storm, our composure is our shield. It allows us to navigate challenges with a clear mind and maintain the trust of our stakeholders. This tranquillity amidst chaos is not just about maintaining peace; it’s about leading by example, ensuring the whole team feels supported and empowered to perform at their best.

8. Problem-Solving: The Purvis Way

No event is without its hurdles, and our problem-solving prowess ensures we can leap over them with grace. Our creative solutions stem from a blend of experience, innovation, and an unyielding resolve to turn challenges into opportunities to exceed expectations.

9. Decision-Making with Confidence

The ability to make swift, informed decisions is in our DNA. It’s about balancing the boldness to act quickly with the wisdom to anticipate the consequences. Our experience has refined our decision-making skills, allowing us to navigate the complexities of event management with assurance and agility.

10. Industry Insight

Our deep industry knowledge and extensive experience are the bedrock of our reputation. It’s this expertise that enables us to anticipate needs, mitigate risks, and deliver exceptional events time and time again. Our network of contacts and understanding of the event landscape make Purvis not just a service provider, but a trusted partner.

These ten pillars guide our journey. They are not just skills but a testament to our dedication to excellence and innovation in the face of every challenge. At Purvis, we’re not just creating events; we challenge ourselves to craft experiences that resonate, inspire, and connect. If you’d like to be part of our journey, get in touch today.
