"Samantha flawlessly executed all communications at our event location, ranging from overseeing food and beverage to negotiating room rates. She also liaised with symposium participants before, during and after the Symposium to ensure that all necessary communication was provided. Being based in the United States, I worked with Samantha remotely for a year before meeting her in-person at the symposium. Although we were an ocean away, she was still able to execute all of her responsibilities and duties. I highly recommend her and would gladly work with her again for future events!

"Samantha’s work ethic and professionalism is outstanding. In the last year I have come to depend significantly on the support of Samantha in her role as Events Manager. She has genuine commitment to her work and is extremely efficient, intelligent, creative, reliable, and organises others brilliantly. I have no doubt that Samantha is in the top 1% of her profession and I can’t recommend her highly enough.

"Samantha stands out from the rest of the field for her professionalism and quick thinking, as well as her experience. From the moment Samantha was on board we felt the weight off our shoulders; very simply, she has done all we have asked of her with great efficiency; and taken responsibility for looking ahead and anticipating upcoming challenges. Throughout all of this, she has been friendly, approachable, and a pleasure to work with. I would hire her again tomorrow should we have another event; I recommend her to you without reservation. Rupert Higham, Lecturer, Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge" - January 12th 2020
