  • “I just wanted to say thank you so much for your time, patience, support and assistance over the past few months, with this morning’s business briefing. It has been a pleasure working with you and you have been a star with the support you have given us.”  
    Southend Borough CouncilNicola Mason
  • "Our conference was a big success because of your help and organisation and all the support during the conference, so thank you very much for everything you did."
    Institute for Social and Economic Research
  • "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
  • "Thanks for all your help with our Flog It! Valuation Day. We had an excellent number come - 500 - which is fantastic for an event held in the summer."

  • "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!"

  • "The Forum has certainly eclipsed all expectations and provided the perfect atmosphere for good conversation before the event. We hope we are able to work together again in the future."
