“Verity takes the strain out of traveling by booking (at no expense to me) all my hotels. Once she has the details of where, when and budget she will provide me with three options – but now she knows my preferences often it’s straightaway. Her standards are excellent as she’d never book a hotel she wouldn’t be happy to stay in. I’ve had excellent accommodation at better prices with less admin than when I sorted it out myself.”  Sarah Fox, MD of Enjoy Legal Learning.

She is a great communicator and linked well with our delegates and conference speakers/workshop leaders. I would recommend her services to other companies.” Liz Johnston from Learning Advocates www.learningadvocates.co.uk “

“Verity was recommended to me by a colleague. I needed to find a venue in an area that I didn’t know so contacted Verity. She was warm and friendly and, although based in Cheshire, provided me with a number of options for a venue in Kent. The options were presented in a spreadsheet so that I could make instant like-for-like comparisons. Her attention to detail was excellent and she had negotiated some preferential rates on my behalf. She kept me informed along the way and was always punctual in meeting deadlines. She was a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending her.”
Vicki Harris from PA247 www.pa247.eu

When I approached her for a venue for the Dare to Event in November, the speed, the professionalism, the knowledge of the market and the value for money aspect in getting the right product for me – at the price that is right was very impressive.
