THANK YOU to you and your team, particularly the two lovely women who were on hand to assist at our Strategy & Board meeting, with room set up, queries, parking vouchers and logistics. It was greatly appreciated and assisted us in making our event such a success with Board members, Executives and CEO all noting their appreciation and commenting on how impressed they were with the running of both days, the venue, food –  everything involved, so thank you so much for your expertise, management and assistance…..and of course patience with all of our changes along the way.

Corporate Governance Officer, Aruma

Thank you to all of the Aspire Staff for all of the work you have done to make our UOW Council events so successful.

The team has done an amazing job during the 3 events, and I am very grateful for all of their help and professionalism during this time, we are very fortunate to have such a good group of people, particularly Lee and Tess, who always excel with their customer service skills.

Thank you for coordinating this event with me, I have so enjoyed working with you and am so pleased we have you on the Aspire team.  Your leadership and coordination have made my job a lot easier, CMG were great, the flowers were lovely and the extra little touches (eg:  coffee and treats on arrival) were lovely.
