I have been involved with running conferences before and I have never had such wonderful support and help. There was no problem that Renee could not solve (with a smile) and no detail too small for her attention.
Renee was always approachable and even when we were at our most frustrating she didn’t show her exasperation. Her level of support was always brilliant. The jaw dropper for me was when she said that we could call her at any time, even in the middle of the night if there was a calamity. There wasn’t of course, because Renee was in charge.
Choosing Leishman and Associates as our conference organizers was an inspired moment, and being given Renee as our organizer was the best thing that could have happened to us. I have no regrets at all, and I am sure that the other members of the committee feel the same way.
The only thing left to say is a huge thank you Renee and Leishman. We could not have achieved anything like our great fun conference without your help, knowledge and commitment.
Judy, On behalf of the TUTTI 2016 committee
On behalf of the Organising Committee I write to formally thank you all for your contributions to this year ABNA2015 Annual Conference in Coogee. The feedback we have received to date has been very positive. Many delegate indicated that they got much from this meeting and were greatly encouraged by the positive focus of the conference theme. I would like to thank you for taking the time to prepare for this meeting and to travel – some of you many miles – to join us for this meeting. We look forward to seeing how what we learned during these 2 days translates into our biobanking practices moving forward. We hope to see you at future ABNA events.

Just a quick note to thank you for all your help in making this such a pleasurable and successful trip. I was very impressed by your slick and efficient conference organisation. If only all conferences had your touch….
SOAC Delegate 2015
I just wanted to extend my thankyou to the Leishman’s team. You have yet again produced a great event and made this event an enjoyment for all that attended. The feedback to date, from members and sponsors, has reinforced what a great event this was.
A big thanks to Nic for all the work undertaken throughout the year. We have high expectations for our Platinum events but year after year, you make it easy to work with you and a big thanks from me, for helping me out with this gig. You produce great ideas, keep us on track and ensure our event runs smoothly.

“I had a wonderful time at this year’s meeting and certainly it was the best AMATA meeting I have attended to date (including the 2 that I have worked on the organising committee; 2003 and 2009)… And I thought your company did an excellent job and will recommend you in future.”
Rohan Williams, AMATA delegate
Thank you again for your role, and that of your team, in such a great IPMA World Congress. Of my many project management-related conferences and congresses in which I have participated over the last 30 years, this one is the best, for many reasons.”
Stacy Goff, VP of Marketing & Events, International Project Management Association
“Hi Renee, We certainly appreciated being involved again this year and look forward to next Year’s event in Adelaide. It was a great pleasure meeting you and your team, working alongside professional staff; nothing was too difficult, everyone always willing to help.
All aspects of the conference reaffirmed the Leishman signature of professionalism and commitment to detail, from the communications through the build-up period and throughout the event to the food; staging; sponsor ID and management. There are many who think the same; well done on another successful event. Please also pass on and thank Paula. See you all next year.”
Dale Ritchie Business Development & Marketing Manager Integrated Facility Management Pty Ltd
“Paula, I know that the IPMA World Congress was a
great success, and I consider that to be largely down to you. As I have said, to you and others you are a great conference organiser. I will gladly recommend you whenever I get an opportunity to do so.”
Professor Lynn Crawford, Academic Program Chair, 25th IPMA World Congress
“Thank YOU and your team for such a warm welcome and professionality!”
Sue Kershaw, Olympic Delivery Authority, UK
“I am hoping I can pass on to you a thank you. Your staff who assisted us in setting up and running our exhibit were fantastic. Nothing was too hard for them, they were very approachable and supportive with a balance of humour. Thank you for making it a great conference for us as well.”
Rachel Muldoon, Professional Services Manager – AIPM
“Many thanks Brigitte! Thank you also for all your assistance with our presentations at the conference. Everything was beautifully and calmly organised and I know that only happens with an awful lot of hard work behind the scenes!”
Maureen Wood, Director, HEIMS Business Operations, Department of Education Employment and Workplace Relation
“Nicole and co, I’m on my way back from Melbourne Airport. I had a bit of time to reflect on the trip and I must say, Leishmans continue to exceed all expectations. FANTASTIC effort in every regard..
On a more personal note, Nicole, brilliant work. I think I phoned you 1000 times over the past 2 months and you were always a pleasure to deal with. And your “attention to detail” over the past 3 days was exceptional. Huge job. It was also great getting to know you better.
Brig, what can I say ? The choice staff and members have always loved dealing with you and you continue to be an absolute delightful business partner. Paula, you were missed by everyone. Rest assured though it all went to plan.
To everyone at the Leishmans team. Bravo, 3 votes.”
Dennis D’Angelo, Choice Aggregation Services
“Renee, An absolute pleasure! And I have to mention the tour in particular – although not personally affected by the Qantas grounding at that time, we were most impressed with the way you and Victoria did your utmost to ensure that everyone who was affected could get home (as well as going 110 % to keep the tour itself on track). With our thanks to you all.”
Brian and Rosemary – ANCOLD Delegate and partner
“…The event was an outstanding success, thanks largely to the hard work and dedication of the team from Leishman Associates. I can honestly say, the whole idea of organising such a huge event was extremely daunting – until Leishman’s came on board”.
Matt Smith, Convenor, Tertiary Education Management Conference
