What our customers have to say…

“Please pass my thanks onto your entire team. You did a fantastic job not just tonight, but for the first 6 months of what has been an incredible year so far.”

Shane Harmon

“We use Red Badge because they provide the critical balance between being a security guard and treating people as you or I would like to be treated.”

Michael Ayrton
Park Director | Cornwall Park Trust Board

“To say that the security staff you provided me on this special day were great, would, I feel, be an understatement. I can only say that you provided me with people of an extremely high calibre…”

Louise Reid

Mark Frankham
CEO | ASB Showgrounds

“Red Badge staff have always been courteous, professional and intelligent in how they operate. They have managed each situation appropriately.”

Jason Marris
Auckland City Council's Democracy Services

“My thanks and appreciation for the manner in which your team carried out the security for the council inaugural meeting. I was very impressed by a number of key factors in this operation; the standard and professionalism of the staff deployed; the level of positive supervision during the event; the ready availability of management at short notice and their valued input into the planning.”

Brian Louden
Security Manager | Regional Operations | Auckland City Council

“We were event managing the USNZ Partnership Forum in Christchurch and were part of the delegation still on site at the AMI Stadium on the day that the devastating earthquake struck, 23 February. The evacuation from the stadium was carried out with professionalism and authority. Brian was our main point of contact and he took charge of the situation with a real sense of calm and authority. He showed amazing leadership to not only his own team but to our delegates and event teams.

We were frightened and looking for answers. Brian parked his car for easy visibility, provided initial first aid as required, turned on the radio and gave regular updates as news came to hand. He was approachable and never stopped looking for options to get us to a safer place. We pleaded with the Red Badge team to leave and check on their families and we would manage ‘our delegates’. But, of course, that was never an option for Brian and the team. Their sense of duty is totally commendable.”

Jo Darby
Event Manager | USNZ Partnership Forum

“Red Badge have an ability to draw on a range of staff for events and functions. They use this pool to best match the venue and clients needs to their wide range of skilled staff. This can range from a barrier team at a concert to a corporate host on the door of a VIP function. Their associated company, Awesome Events, is an additional advantage to the stadium, having used them for a number of wider venue support roles, including ticketing and ushering“.

Simon Wickham
The Trusts Stadium

“Red Badge were able to provide an almost complete event services solution for our recent concert series; a hands-on team that provided ideas along the way and were quick to adapt to changes when needed. We look forward to working together again for the 2012 / 2013 season ahead.”

Brent Pilcher
Church Road

“The synergies between the parent company and Awesome Events have given us a seamless operation at matches. Red Badge’s commitment to employing knowledgable, effective and capable staff has provided New Zealand Cricket with trouble-free gate operations from both a ticketing and security aspect where both services are used in tandem. I have no hesitation in recommending Awesome Events as a provider of high quality event staff backed by an organisation with years of invaluable event experience.”

Owen Harrison
Marketing Manager | NZ Cricket

“As a participant at a major Auckland-based event last Saturday, I was really impressed with the excellent and highly professional staff you have the honour to employ. Without exception, all of your team members I came into contact with were friendly and happy to assist, in what must have been reasonably trying circumstances. Thank you again you and your team are a real credit to the brand ‘Red Badge’.”

“I would also like to pass on my appreciation to the security staff that assisted in yesterday’s game against the Warriors. They were truly outstanding and extremely professional in the manner they conducted their duties”.

Frank Ponissi
General Manager Football Operations | Melbourne Storm Rugby League Club

“The security team at ‘One Direction’ were great ambassadors not only for Red Badge but also the venue and the band themselves. I found them to be extremely professional, friendly and helpful, which positioned them as both great security staff and hosts.”

Stuart Robertson
Sales and Marketing Service Manager | Ticketek

“Just a quick note to pass on my congratulations to you and your staff at the Warriors vs Brisbane game on 5 May 2012. Radio Hauraki and Lion Red ran a promotion that involved ushering 250 winners onto the pitch and back to their seats in a very limited timeframe. This promotion could not have been as successful if not for the help and work of Red Badge. Great effort, keep up the good work!”

Dermot Sweeney
National Promotions Manager | Hauraki
