Priti meets up with leading Witham based national event security firm

Great to see some good press following our Head of Operations and Managing Directors meeting with Priti Patel, the MP for Witham, last week.

The three met on Tuesday 16th August to discuss the key issues affecting the security business. One of the main topics of conversation was local government contracts and the difficulties smaller businesses face in trying to win such work when up against companies deemed to be larger and more experienced, by virtue of the size of their turnover.

During the discussions, it was agreed that more needs to be done to recognise the talent and capability available in smaller businesses, to ensure that they are able to compete fairly for governmental security contracts.

Commenting after the meeting, Priti said: “I will be looking into the process for tendering for governmental contracts relating to the events industry. McKenzie Arnold are first class providers in the business of event security and it is only right that their extensive experience and skills should be recognised in the tender process.”
