In addition, Wildgoose has welcomed Matt Marciano from Altitude London as account manager, Joanne Anderson from events caterer Blue Strawberry and Table Talk as account manager and Paris Stevens as digital and social marketing executive.

Meanwhile Sam Hames has joined the team as sales executive, Lucy Hirst has come onboard as operations executive and Emily Drake has been appointed as events executive.

Jonny Edser, managing director, said: "During the past six months we have experienced a huge increase in not only the volume of enquiries, but also in the range of briefs we are asked to fulfil. Whilst we were traditionally known for delivering teambuilding treasure hunts using our award-winning app, we have expanded its usage into onboarding programmes, learning and development, product launches, exhibitions and industry specific events."

He added that clients want events that are not only engaging for the team, but also deliver ROI and support their values. "Our unique technology has been designed to support and service a variety of events and themes and the growth of the team here at Wildgoose has been in response to the increase and variety of demand. I am delighted to be welcoming such a talented and experienced raft of new recruits whose experience, know-how and creativity will help take Wildgoose to the next level and supports our ambitious growth."
