Incredibly Helpful
I have been working with Shirley for over 14 years now and she is consistently incredibly helpful, professional, and fun. She has sourced so many wonderful venues for us over the years, taking the stress out of negotiating and dealing with the venues, and always throws in a few ideas that I haven’t considered which often turn out to be the best ones. I trust her implicitly to deal directly with all of our clients to secure their accommodation or meeting/function facilities plus help get my own team booked into hotels/properties. Shirley will always offer to help out when we have a problem – always keeping calm and helping to find a solution which is invaluable when working on live events. I wouldn’t use anyone else to help me find the best venues and come up with the best deals.

Well Organised
We’ve worked with Shirley for the past 9 years with the delivery of the Local Produce Trade Show. We’ve found Shirley to be very thorough and well organised when it comes to event planning and the execution on the day.

Shirley and her team have supported with the Southampton Hospitality Awards since their inception in 2019. Always bringing a highly organised, methodical and practical approach, working with Shirley is a pleasure and has ensured our Awards have grown from strength to strength. Shirley’s experience in organising events is second to none and we look forward to many more years collaboration.

Attention To Detail
I’ve been working with Shirley on our corporate boxing event since its inception in 2014. After seeing her work on testimonial events for former professional football players (Danny Wallace, Keith O’Neill, Paul Gascoign and Matthew Le Tissier). When we began our charity boxing event, Shirley was my first choice. Her organisational skills, attention to detail, administrative event duties, venue finding services and outright professionalism is second to none, and has certainly played a major part in why our annual event is still going. With Shirley’s assistance, we are able to deliver a first-class event year in year out.
