rEVENTS Academy has provided some clear direction as to the order of business to create an event and to ensure that we cover all bases. To have a 10-step process to follow ensures that at the end we have an event that we can all be proud of.”

”Every time we do a module it all resonates and clicks. RA reinforced for me that what I was trying to implement for my event was right and allowed me the time and support to finesses my practices.”

”Through our involvement with rEVENTS we were able to negotiate a sponsorship with a research company to conduct surveys at our event. We also have a greater understanding of how we’d like our event to develop and what we want it to look like in the future.”

”I’ve learnt a great deal from Linda’s methodical approach to event organising. As the Committee Chair, I’ve also appreciated having the opportunity to pick Linda’s brains as needed. Her support has been invaluable.”

”A measure of success for me is that at our recent AGM, we were successful in filling 3 Executive positions and twelve Sub-management positions out of 15. It clearly shows the confidence people now have in an association that is being run a professional level, with procedures/KPI’s/operation manual and flow charts to assist. Without this level of professionalism, I believe we would still be floundering, just the few that did.
