Events crewing firm Gallowglass first launched Gallowglass Training in 2011 to provide training for its own crews. It has been expanded to provide courses in a dedicated training facility to employees of other events industry companies.
Bischoff first joined in 2004 as senior crew chief. He then moved to a client liaison role in 2009, before leaving the company for a business development role with a coffee company.
He said: "I’ve been willingly seduced back to the events industry - and my year’s sabbatical has shown me just how far the bar has been raised in expectations of gold-standard event delivery. Many companies are taking speed, efficiency and safety really seriously nowadays, while others simply want to operate within the law. Either way, training has become an essential, not a luxury.
"Demand for training is growing - in everything from manual handling through first aid, risk assessment and sustainable event management. We’re also able to offer bespoke courses anywhere and everywhere, so there’s a massive potential for the business. Gallowglass Training is now in its third year, it has progressively grown its UK client base and we’re delighted to be taking our expertise overseas."
Earlier this year, Gallowglass expanded into Europe with two new offices in Paris and Monaco.
