Feedback from our Clients
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for last weeks SKO and all the hard work and preparation in the lead-up. Everyone I speak with from the leadership team to the delegates (and even our sponsors) tell me it’s the best SKO ever.
So that’s a job well done, knowing that we executed our plan so well.
Head of Major Events
Hi Jim. Many thanks again for being, as always, just brilliant!!! You are so great to work with, and we couldn't do it without you.
Thank you for a great job over the last couple of weeks. It's good to know we not only had great technical support from both of you, but a professional attitude to your work and the ability to look after our clients without the support of our production staff. Looking forward to working with you both again soon.
Jim - thanks so much for all the AV, presentation, sound and lighting - it went a dream!! We will be using you as much as poss in the future!!

Senior Employee Communications Consultant
I have worked with Jim on a number of high profile events over the last three years. Jim's professionalism, technical ability and customer management skills are exceptional. His calm, friendly but assertive manner ensures the job gets done to a very high standard and that the almost inevitable issues are resolved quickly and effectively. I can't envisage running an important event without Jim being a key part of my production team.

Ollie Young Foundation
JT Productions are extremely proud to support the Ollie Young Foundation.
On Thursday 1st December 2011, we were given the devastating news that our son Charlie’s best friend Ollie Young had an inoperable brain tumour. Just 2.5 weeks before this, Ollie and Charlie ( both 5 years old ) were running around our house wrestling on the floor with Jim. Ollie was diagnosed with a Grade IV Glioblastoma Multiforme Brain Tumour and we were told that he only had 2 weeks left to live.
Our gorgeous Ollie managed to stay with us for 3 months and finally left us on 26th February 2012 just a day before his 6th birthday. He was an extremely special little boy who will be in our hearts forever. His parents Sarah & Simon ( two of our best friends ) decided to set up the Ollie Young Foundation to raise money for research and awareness of Glioblastoma Multiforme Brain Tumours.
