‘My team have been full of praise for their away day – thank you! I couldn’t say it any better than them….
“Thank you for such a superb team day. The environment instantly made us all feel relaxed and comfortable with welcome drinks and pastries on arrival – all prior to our strategy meeting in the morning. Jen, Andrew and Kat were extremely attentive during the fun ‘mystery box challenge’ and really helped facilitate a supportive team effort, that we all enjoyed sampling! I would most definitely recommend Jenius Social for future team away days. Especially for small teams of people – an ideal venue” (Donna)
“A fantastic way to get to know colleague more, and to learnmore about ourselves too. Despite worrying that my lack of cooking knowledge might prevent me from being involved, it is a very inclusive, fun activity and I have genuinely learnt how to cook, learning from my peers as well as from the professional help on hand. A really innovative unique way to work with a team and do something new!” (Nicola)
Thanks so much – I will be recommending your venue to other university teams.’
Dr Sally Everett, Deputy Dean

‘We recently ran a team building event with Jenius Social where 26 of us, under the close and patient guidance of our fantastic chefs Andrew and Aika, made Brazilian and Mexican street food. It was a great evening, filled with fun in a relaxed environment where everyone got the opportunity to learn new cooking techniques as well as tasting some delicious food. Jen and the team looked after us really well and I'd recommend this to anyone looking for something different for a team building activity – for us, working together to cook dinner was a great way to bring the team together.’
Tony Mitchell, Head of Digital Propositions

Everything was well organised and nothing was too much hassle from our enthusiastic host, Jen."
Caitlin Jones, Senior PR Manager
“Our team made Mexican street food dishes under the guidance of chefs Andrew and Aika.

My team left well fed, well watered and very happy!"
Faye Kilgour, Executive Assistant, BDO LLP
were looking for something different for our monthly team events,
Jenius social made this possible for a really good price. We were
greeted with yummy canapés and wine before starting our cocktail making
class which included 2 cocktail lessons and a group cocktail
competition. Everyone was made to feel really relaxed and welcome, which
is not an easy task for such a large group of people (47). The next day
everyone who raving about what a great night they had and I got lots of
compliments for arranging it which is always a plus!!! Thanks to Jen
and the other guys at Jenius for a wonderful evening"
Jessie Giladi, Office Manager, GoCardless
"We ran a team building event with Jenius Cookery School recently. It was a fantastic event which really brought together individuals from different parts of the business and got them focussed on a common goal. The feedback from all the staff has been so positive – it’s a great way to have a bit of fun, get the guys fired up and of course the beauty of it all was the resulting feast of tortillas, meatballs and fishcakes to enjoy at the end of it!"

"I’ve just had a sit down with Annica and the team for their feedback on our lovely morning at Jenius Social. We would like to take the chance to again sincerely thank Jen for a really enjoyable Ready, Steady, Cook experience at Jenius Social. The venue had such a bright, modern and clean feel which made for a great cooking environment. We thought that all of the staff were really approachable and welcoming. They would do their upmost to make us feel comfortable and to help us to gain as much as possible from our morning. The food, though we do say it ourselves, was sensational and the delicious wine and antipasti Jen kindly provided only added to our enjoyment of the meal as a whole. I only wish I was on the winning team as we’re still hearing about it…"

"We organised a private event with Jenius Social and they were extremely helpful and responsive to all of our requests. They were really flexible with the various dietary requirements in our group and we got to create some lovely tapas that was a little more creative. The atmosphere was lovely and relaxed and the chef helped us all pitch in and do eachother's dishes, so everyone was able to learn a lot of new skills. The best part was being able to eat our dishes at the end together by candlelight - it was a lovely evening. Thanks Jenius Social!"

We worked with the chef to create perfect food pairings for the beer, based on our tasting notes and they went down a storm – even if it was 10am on a Thursday morning! The location & experience were perfect – turned a meeting and presentation into a memorable event for everyone involved"

"Jenius Social was the perfect choice for our first Wine Tasting & Tapas event. Everything from welcoming the participants on arrival to the wine serving and final address went wonderfully smoothly thanks to the professionalism and efficiency of Jennifer and her staff. We were also pleased about the choice of wine expert who wasn't only knowledgeable about her topic but also kept her audience entertained in the humorous way she imparted her vinaceous wisdom. The generously served six different tapas were delicious and went down a treat. A good time was had by everyone and the stylish yet relaxed atmosphere was conducive to our participants mingling with each other. It was a great decision to hold our first Wine Tasting & Tapas event here and we'll certainly be back for one of our upcoming events!"
Carina MH, Committee Member, GWN
"Bridge hired Jenius Social for a workshop; nothing was too much trouble for the team – we even managed to get frosting on the glass windows to create a private atmosphere! It was a great space, heaped with natural light and they managed to secure off-site breakout spaces for us too.
Thank you to Jen, Andrew and the whole team – I hope to be back soon!"
Stephanie Cunnah, Bridge Partnership
