We went to Graham with a brief outlining what our client was wanting to achieve and he came back with a great concept that we then worked together to fine tune. Graham was super flexible, helpful and creative during this process and the end outcome was a huge success. I would highly recommend Social Cooking team to anyone wanting to add a fun element to their conference or event.
