Plan B Events was established in January 2011 by owner and director Chris ‘Jaffa’ O’Flynn, after trading for four years as Star Solutions in the same industry.
Having been involved in the motorsport hospitality business for some time, Chris saw a gap in the market for the supply of working drivers to drive trucks to and from events, often at short notice (hence ‘Plan B Events’) and prepared to do anything that needed doing (including washing up).
The customer base quickly expanded to include prestigious clients such as Williams F1, Honda Touring Cars and the Honda British Superbike Team.
Chris’ Hall of Fame
Chris has several long and arduous Rock & Roll and Entertainment Tours under his belt, including the Misfits, Madonna, Lady Ga Ga, Rammstien, Snoop Dog, Wheatus, Lord of the Dance, Britain’s Got Talent, Walking with Dinosaurs and many more. These have taken Chris and Plan B Events to all corners of Europe and Russia. Plan B Events also supplied additional ‘double’ drivers for the long distances between venues for these tours.
Chris has worked on many film and TV productions including Comic Relief, Belle, Downton Abbey, Derek and The World’s End. In late 2009 he was in the Western Sahara desert, on the film set of ‘Sex in the City 2’. Star Solutions provided hospitality and transport services for cast and crew during filming, often under very testing conditions!
The First in Line…
Another integral member of the Plan B Events team is Gill ‘Bill’ Taylor, whose background is in fleet vehicle management and accounts. Gill has worked alongside Chris on a part time basis since 2011. As the demand for Plan B Events services has rapidly grown she’s now joined Chris and Stuart full time and is the first point of contact for new and existing clients at Plan B Events’s home base in Cambridgeshire, UK.
Gill is an experienced truck and bus driver herself having completed various European tours and events.
