Interview with Emma Beavis - Guildford Spectrum

It's always good to catch up with our customers. Not only do we get to gauge how our water play features have had an impact on footfall, but we often get to see our innovative solutions in action.

We recently caught up with Emma Beavis, General Manager at Guilford Spectrum about her experience of working with team Hippo. Having been back to the facility numerous times, it was great to hear her thoughts.

Here is what Emma had to say:
