Client feedback

I was so impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of the conference team before and during the event, accommodating all our requests and ensuring everything flowed seamlessly. I felt completely confident that you had everything under control, which is so valuable when managing a programme such as this. 

The catering has been fantastic, and several delegates have told me how much they enjoyed the lunches.  Please pass on my thanks to the team that looked after us on Sunday evening, who took 3 very last minute additional Halaal requests completely in their stride – my delegates and faculty loved the dinner. Thanks also to Ray who set up all the rooms and transformed the Webb Library for us.

Finally a special mention to the reception dream team – Matthew and Gilly have been superstars all week!
