  • "We haven't stopped hearing praise of our conference, no doubt in large part due to your excellent planning and execution, thank you very much."
    Forum for Arabic Linguistics Conference Dr Enam Al-Wer
  • "I am not one of the world's natural organisers, to put it mildly, but my conference was a great success in no small part because of the preparatory and at-the-time work that your team did.  I'd particularly like to note that Veronica has been absolutely brilliant - unfailingly helpful and constructive, full of great ideas, and always cheerful.  When I've been close to succumbing to panic about the event, Veronica's calm, positive, practical attitude and demeanor kept me grounded and essentially ensured that the conference went ahead.  I'm very grateful and very impressed, and wanted to express my appreciation."
    Southern Studies Forum ConferenceDr Owen Robinson
  • “Please may I take this opportunity to say a huge thank you, on behalf of everyone at Self-Management UK, for all the hard work you put in to help make our event so successful. The feedback we are getting from the day is fantastic, from both Attendees and Vendors. If anything the day was too successful! This was the first time we have arranged an event such as this and your support, advice and guidance, during the run up to the day and on the actual day was nothing short of amazing. On top of all that you were so lovely, nothing was too much trouble, no matter how strange the request and somehow you managed to remain calm, courteous and polite throughout. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you Geraldine, to facilitate the event and we look forward to hopefully working with you again in the future."

  • “Just to say we have finished the meeting and it all went extremely well. Everyone was most impressed with the venue. Thank you so much for arranging everything."
