• Just wanted to provide some feedback for the National Conference. You & your team organized the most outstanding conference - it was so amazing. From the guest speakers to the food, to the accommodation, to the entertainment - everything was incredible. My small team of brokers had the best time ever & your team made me look like the best boss ever for bringing them up. So give yourselves a very big pat on the back!

  • I was the convenor of ACE 2019.  I’m emailing to say thanks for partnering with us to organize the event, and also to pass on how happy we were with having Helene and Samantha as the conference organisers.  They did an excellent job in all regards – Being able to draw on their  experience with ACE (and other conferences) was extremely helpful for getting the processes right and for advice on how to do things, but at the same time they were always 100% responsive to fitting in with particular things we wanted for ACE this year.  Before the conference all the processes worked well and things were done by the dates needed – We were especially happy with some aspects like the conference logo and system for dealing with submitted papers.  At the conference itself I can’t speak highly enough of the effort that both Helene and Samantha put in to  make sure everything ran smoothly, and how friendly and efficient they were at dealing with the conference delegates – There are so many details that need to be taken care of but there wasn’t a single problem in the whole conference.  I’ve already recommended Leishman and Helene/Samantha to Paul Blacklow who is organizing ACE in 2021.

  • Meditrend has been an exhibitor at AMMA for the past five years. We exhibit with a lot of different organisations and groups throughout the year and one of the key points for us is "how well do we work with the Organisers and in fact, how organised are they?" I am pleased to say the Leishman Associates is one of the very best. They are very well organised to start with and this flows on to the way they interact with their clients. We always receive information in a timely manner, and this makes our job so much easier.

    Harry Packer, CEO Meditrend, AMMA Sponsor

  • We have had a long and ensuring relationship with Leishman Associates and we always value the support and flexibility their team has offered to us for the events we hold.

    Stuart Terry, AAIR President

  • This really is an excellent final report and from all the conferences I’ve been involved in, I’ve never seen such a comprehensive one. If only we had this from past conferences when we were planning our conference! The next MAM co-chairs are going to have a very easy task as they have all the info at their fingertips. It was really great to see some photos of the conference. The feedback looks very positive too.

    Tania De Koning-Ward, Co-Chair | MAM 2020

  • The team took a very professional, friendly and personal approach and were very responsive to our needs. They were always willing to work with and listen to us and provide their views and valuable advice on conference organisation, structure and logistics. With a very full two day program the presentations and registrations went smoothly and efficiently and our international and national speakers were looked after. Thank you to Paula and the team and looking forward to working with you again on the 3rd Victorian Cancer Survivorship Conference in 2020.

    Kyleigh Smith | VCCC 2019

  • I am writing this email with the intent of thanking you profusely for having organized everything so painstakingly and well! It would have been very difficult to pay attention to all minute things involved in the entire Conference, and congratulations to all of you who have done it so well!

    Delegate | 37APS 2019

  • We have worked closely with Leishman Associates at AMMA over the past few years to promote Aspen Medical's strong links to the ADF. The team at Leishman Associates understand our goals, find opportunities to make the sponsorship more effective and flexible in how that is delivered. Our AMMA experience is seamless thanks to the team at Leishman Associates.

    Marketing & Communications Director, Aspen Medical

  • You guys at Leishman Associates were amazing to work with. One of the biggest traits I hold in high regard is getting things done, or emailing back, or producing reports, or whatever it is.. in a timely fashion and with urgency. I find it a huge respect thing, and you guys were right there every time whenever we needed anything. I cannot thank you enough for that.

    Kelsey Cloutier | ICRP 2019

  • I have worked with Leishman Associates for over 20 years and have always found them to be personable and attentive to the changing needs of our Association. Our annual Conference has gone from strength to strength and I am delighted that our Association profits are now high enough to be able to provide even greater benefits to our members.

    Dr Nader Abou Seif | 2019 AMA Conference

  • Dear Angela, I Just wanted to say I have been very impressed with your conference organisation – in fact, the very best in my experience of attending conferences over many years. You have been very professional, timely and excellent in the supply of details. Thank you.

    Professor Grant Michelson | RMIT ABEN 2019

  • Leishman’s have been a pleasure to liaise with in the management of the forthcoming RMIT Accounting Educators’ Conference. They have provided helpful advice, professionally liaised with sponsors, and have created a vibrant website to support the Conference. RMIT have enjoyed the relationship that they have established with Leishman’s, and I would be very happy to recommend them to other organisations seeking the service of a professional and highly regarded conference management team.

    Meredith Therapos | RMIT AEC Convenor

  • I must give my highest recommendations for Helene Stewart as our Conference Manager. She was on top of everything from the word go and laid out a timetable well in advance for us to follow. They thought of all the little details and kept us on top of them. They were quick and responsive to issues we had with the website, conference registration, abstracts and speakers. At the end of the day after nearly two years of panicking, ACE2018 went smoothly and successfully and I’ve received nothing but positive feedback on the event.

    Marcia Keegan | ACE2018 Convenor

  • I would like to take this opportunity to thank Leishman Associates for the outstanding conference management provided for the 2018 ANCOLD Conference. In particular, I would like to highly commend both Michelle Miller and Angela Cooper for their dedication, hard work and professionalism (not to mention long hours!). They provided the right balance of proactivity and feedback and made the role of convenor so much easier than I had anticipated. Nothing I requested was too hard and everything I asked for was undertaken promptly and to a very high standard.

    Paul Maisano | ANCOLD Conference Convenor 2018

  • Continuing with the thank-yous, I would like to mention the team at Leishman Associates, in this case led by Emma Harrison – once again they have put the P (for professional) in PCO, and long may their association with the Australasian Polymer Community continue – its now almost unimaginable that we could hold a conference without them!

    IUPAC Polymer Division President | MACRO 2018

  • The Leishman team have always run well organised and highly informed events and of the many I attend, stand-out as the benchmark in doing so. Pre, during and post the TEMC event, I always feel supported, valued and informed.

    Richard Duerden | Diadem (2018 TEMC Sponsor)

  • Thank you for the fantastic effort at 3GPP last week. It as a very smooth operation and we had unanimously positive feedback from all of the delegates we spoke to. This meeting set the bar high for 3GPP – it was well above the norm for a 3Gpp meeting. Really appreciate the seamless execution, the flexibility / support throughout and the small touches that make the difference.

    Telstra 3GPP Convenor

  • It is always a pleasure to receive a call from Paula and her team with an RFP. Crown Melbourne’s relationship with Leishman and Associates has strengthened year on year since its inception and it is mainly due to their sheer professionalism and the exceptional service that they give to their clients ensuring that each event is a resounding success. Throughout their planning process, Leishman maintained the highest level of organisation and timeline management. Whilst on-site, the conference ran with a calm efficiency which was evident in all aspects of the event and was clearly the result of comprehensive planning and highly experienced personnel.

    Jenny Barlow | Crown Events & Conferences Sales Manager

  • A very belated thank you to all of you for your assistance in organising OTCC 2017. I am very thankful for your contributions pre and during the conference, and I think we should all be very pleased with how it came together and the feedback we have received. Thankyou to Helene for your skill and expertise in conference organising. I certainly could not have even remotely considered Cancer Council Tasmania being able to organise such an event without assistance.
