Hot on the heels of our successful minigolf event at the London offices of Facebook, Putterfingers were off to the capital again after a call from internet company Criteo. They wanted to hire a Supersize course to grace a golf-themed social event at their offices in Bloomsbury. No problem – Shelley and Richard were on time and on hand to set up the matting, obstacles, holes, putters and balls to create a 9-hole festival of minigolf. Ruby Cassin-Davies of Criteo said after the event, ‘I wanted to email, on behalf of Criteo, to say a very big thank you to you both for your work yesterday evening- it was such fun and looked amazing, much appreciated.’
The Supersize course was just right for their large room leading to the rooftop terrace.
When Putterfingers arrived, the facilities manager was zooming round the top floor on a hoverboard, and that set the tone for the kind of place it is. They have table tennis which they moved to accommodate the Putterfingers course, table football, a bright red phone box, loud music, art on the walls and a bar that looked set to flow the moment the post-work event began at 5:30 pm. The view from the rooftop terrace is amazing, with the London Eye spinning and the British Museum just down the street.
The CEO – who is rumoured not to attend very many company social events – was spotted having a putt, and the facilities manager, whose job involves making these offices as pleasant a place to work in as possible – also had a go.
