Blackstone has supported our annual company event for the past two years. Our last event had 800 attendees and it was a 24 hours party! The Blackstone team hit the right mark of being relaxed and friendly while keeping everyone safe and quickly nipping any issues in the bud. Dave and his guys gave us sensible and honest advice and worked extremely well with everyone involved with the event. Blackstone were part of the team and we will certainly be working with them again for future events. Michelle Weiss, Just Eat
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Dave and his team for their truly outstanding services. I contracted Blackstone for one of our private events - a Moulin Rouge themed 18th birthday. I needed officers for valet parking, traffic management, as well as monitoring three different marquees with many guests. Dave very quickly understood what I needed and made sure that every security aspect was covered at our two site meetings with Blackstone. David and his team were outstanding from the word go. Constantly proactive, reacting to any concerns, in a swift and thorough manner whilst remaining discreet at all times. My client and their guests were blown away by the level of service Blackstone were able to provide. I would not hesitate in recommending Blackstone and their services to anyone requiring the ultimate security professionals. I will certainly continue to use Blackstone and cannot recommend them enough. Oscar Hibbert, Managing Director, South East Productions Ltd.
“Blackstone Security provided us with a service second to none – both at our GB Rowing Team ‘Lodge’ (which provided a meeting place for Team Members and their friends & family), and our ‘Post-Games’ Party. We were after a professional, courteous and welcoming face that instilled confidence in the knowledge that our rowers were in safe hands, and that is exactly what we got! We owe both Dave Meaklim, Company Director, and his colleague Mark our gratitude in providing such a professional service and ensuring the safe, secure and relaxing environment we were aiming for. We would thoroughly recommend Blackstone Security to any company wanting a similar approach and outcome – you’d be in very safe hands! Our thanks for an outstanding job well done!” The GB Rowing Team, August 2012
I have known Dave Meaklim of Blackstone Security for more than five years. In the last two years Dave has been reporting to me directly. The service Blackstone provides to wellington is both security officers and our Dog Section which has proved to be invaluable. The college holds a number of annual high profile Royal events requiring increased security support which Dave has provided and events have gone off smoothly without any issues. During the period of the service I have found the team to be very professional and helpful and from my prospective I would have no hesitation in recommending their security service.
Dave Meaklin and his company Blackstone have worked with Summerhouse Media on the previous two Sunday Times Festival of Education festivals and will do so again this year. Blackstone have been a complete pleasure to work with from start to finish and nothing is too much trouble. Extremely professional, polite and responsive at all times particularly when dealing with speakers who become a little too passionate during debates! In 2012 we had one such difficult situation between a journalist and a very well-known historical lecturer which resulted in Blackstone removing both speakers from the debate. They dealt with the situation in the most professional manner while keeping the disruption down to a minimum. I really like working with Dave and look forward to knowing that security will be managed to the highest of standards again this year. I couldn’t recommend Blackstone high enough and will always looks to use them whenever we require security at any of our events. Louise Hunter, managing director, Summerhouse Media – Event organiser for The Sunday Times Festival of Education
We had a last minute security request for a large wedding we were organising in Hampshire, and Blackstone were just fantastic. They arrived straight away and our client was instantly secure in the knowledge that their property was safe. They were incredibly professional and polite. We will certainly be using them again.
Thank you for being so accommodating and taking our booking last minute! Your professional and friendly approach made our guests feel at ease and most importantly safe. It’s been a pleasure working with you and I look forward to the next event!
