Testimonials

On behalf of the IUA team that came on Friday I want to say a very big thank you!!
I have had such positive feedback and everybody LOVED their time at Gecko.  They all said you were excellent and they enjoyed how you hosted and conducted the day.  So thanks to you and your team!!

We will be sure to remember Gecko for another team event!

A huge thanks for the great evening!!      
Jesse did a superb job.
He is absolutely amazing in the kitchen and has such a lovely personality – he really did “make the course”. The cupcakes were to die for! I can’t wait to experiment at home!
We all had such fun, there was so much laughing, banter and licking of bowls – I think we all felt like kids again. I’m very keen to do more courses like that with Gecko, and will definitely spread the good word about your kitchen.

Once again Thank You – and massive thanks to your super star Jesse – he ROCKS!!

Thank you for the wonderful evening had by all the team of Three Peaks. They have spent some parts of the morning still talking of this and we know that this could be an option when looking to bring our teams together in the future. We are constantly sourcing quick and simple options, been a small team so will keep this in mind.

A big thank for throwing in the punch, especially at the last minute. The generous offer is appreciated. With all the photos that Barrie has place into a collage, the event will be pasted onto our web site and all the social media slots, so Gecko school will get some exposure along the way.
On behalf of Alain, myself and the leadership team, a big thank you for the relaxed atmosphere and for accommodating the small to medium businesses which sometimes are not seen to be considered.
It was superb!
