"A really big thank you for what you did for the tournament. I think you both did a fantastic job and frankly without the amount of attention that you two put into it the event wouldn't have gone anywhere near as smoothly. I think you delivered much more than I could have reasonably expected and I'm really grateful for that, so thanks very much."
David Pond, Chief Executive, GBWR

"Congratulations on running such a professional event. The level of detail provided prior and during the event made it run extremely smoothly. The use of the team attaches was extremely helpful. In our instance Laura was able to assist with all my questions and it was obvious you had briefed them extremely well prior to the tournament. Well done and we look forward to seeing you in the future!"
Kim Ellwood, Team Manager, Australia
