Testimonials

“May I first thank you very much for Smile’s professionalism, flexibility and team spirit in making what has been deemed the most successful Sales Meeting and Gala Awards Night to date! I have had today the opportunity of speaking with my client, Lisa, and she is completely “blown-away” on what we all produced for her training weekend and Awards Night. Lisa has had “non-stop praise” from her Vendors, her fellow Directors and her Sales Teams North and South since going into her office today! She said that this is “in no small part” down to what we all provided and thanked me for making her “look great” on the night. This is as a direct result of your bands collective professionalism, attention, energy and detail to the Awards running order and your part in that. Your “Party Set” kept the dance floor buzzing all night which made this such a successful event to the end! I have had the pleasure of producing the Micro-P conference and awards nights for the last 15 years, and year on year the pressure is still to deliver “The Best Ever” – you have not failed me again this year!” May I again thank you and your band once more and look forward to working with you again on the 2014 exertis MICRO-P training weekend.”

– Alistair Haig, MD at TSC Events, Whittlebury Hall, 17th October 2013
