- "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
- "We recently stayed in the University of Essex’s halls whilst on a big diving project in the Thames Estuary. The facilities were perfect with your own en-suite room but also with a well-stocked communal kitchen/dining area. The staff were really helpful right through from booking to arriving. We will certainly be coming back next year when the project resumes!"MSDS MarineMark James
