“Well what a night! Thank you so very much for your preparations, advice, hands on support, coordination, unflappable calm, and charm (!) in making #OurChangingNature such a resounding success.
We pulled off an ambitious and very powerful experience for our guests seamlessly, and if there were any wrinkles neither I nor any of our guests noticed them.
Our sponsors were absolutely thrilled with the space, footfall and gifts. And our Trustees – as well as every person I spoke to – gave us fantastically positive feedback.
Needless to say, we could not have done it without you. Your professionalism and creativity have deeply impressed us.”
“Kate and her team are true professionals. No matter what changes or unexpected events come up they are always on top of things and responding with a smile. They work incredible hours behind the scenes to make for a seamless event, every detail thought about and double checked, all key players kept up to date and everything in place. We were able to focus on the content of our event and the networking with our colleagues confident that BEYOND were managing all the logistics and event management.
Particularly impressive is their ability to work with new hotels and settings each time, we held our conference in Guatemala in 2017 and Istanbul this year. Our participants come from all parts of the world and we work in multiple languages which Kate and her team take in their stride. It is always an absolute pleasure working with them.”
” We asked you to take our Assembly of Members annual meeting to the next level, and you did exactly that. We asked you to help us all feel, new and existing members, part of the “FAMILY” and you did that too. It’s not easy working all around the world to feel cohesion and connection as soon as you come together but with your personal touch, through your technology and your bringing us together on the event, we felt that the management team, the delegates, our simultaneous interpreters and the BEYOND team were part of one big family all moving forward together.
You made us look more professional by keeping us to timelines and upgrading production where it was going to have the most impact. You took the logistical reins allowing us get on with our own jobs . You have demonstrated to us best practice and ways to improve the event for next year. In accordance with our tight budgets you were rigorous in your feedback as to where we should spend and where we should not. Our Treasurer has declared that you more than proved your worth and that means something coming from a charity!
We were extremely impressed with you both in terms of project management and consultancy, and very much look forward to working with you on the Assembly of Members 2017, wherever in the world that may be.”
“Wow! To pull off 20 days of great events around the UK with just a 3 week lead time is no mean feat and you passed the test with flying colours. The kids’ activities were so well thought out and thank you for moving mountains to source the perfect bauble! Not even the logistics of the far-flung locations phased you. What else can we throw at you?”
“Thank you, Kate, Leonie and Alice for all your hard work for our event. The feedback has been very positive, everyone enjoyed it and it was a pleasure working with you.”
“Thank you all for delivering a fantastic event at the British Museum. It was brilliantly executed and I had a “pinch myself” moment when watching Urban Voices. It really was a spectacular evening that came together brilliantly, thank you and congratulations.”
“Last night’s event at Kensington Palace was faultless. The African children’s choir melted hearts, the food was fabulous and even the weather played ball. Thank you for your calmness under pressure, and for your ability to always find a solution to every logistical challenge. The venue fitted our brief perfectly and the event was a truly memorable celebration.”
“Fantastic evening. Venue great, food excellent, service wonderful so thank you very much. All in all a truly great evening”
“BEYOND has directly managed the hospitality programme for our Account Directors across the UK business. They have consistently produced an array of ideas to suit different levels of formality and budget and have helped us successfully tailor our hospitality programmes. From organising an informal wine tasting to rubbing shoulders with stars at the British Independent Film Awards, BEYOND gives us access to a fantastic range of event opportunities and always works with enthusiasm, creativity and professionalism.”
“Our objectives were to raise funds for our client’s key charity, develop our personal relationship with them and have some fun – not objectives that obviously sit that comfortably with a “healthy” theme! BEYOND were very thorough in their planning. Their creativity in linking a healthy heart with fun, sociable activities led to an enjoyable and thoroughly successful event. The feedback and thanks I received from our clients are testimony to that. Cheers!”
“BEYOND understood our vision from the outset, and came up with original ideas which enhanced our communication across our globally diverse teams. Their willingness to partner with us made our offsite an unqualified success.”
“The event was brilliant, everyone loved it and it was a great success!”
“My congratulations to the BEYOND team for a fantastic job yesterday. Everything worked like clockwork.”
“The great thing about BEYOND is that they don’t just project manage, they think. We have set BEYOND some tough challenges over the years and they have always come through with flying colours. Their creativity is brilliant, their events planned in minute detail and they’re lovely people to work with.”
“No wonder Alun mentioned you – fascinating and thank you. You have upped the ante!”
“BEYOND managed two Christmas events for RSA in December. BEYOND was spectacular! They were very helpful, professional, reliable and most importantly creative. Without their precision our parties would not have been the success they were. I certainly look forward to working with them next year!”
“They are a friendly close knit company that offer above and beyond what is asked of them and Christmas just would not be the same without them!”
“BEYOND have organised Christmas parties for our company for the past three years now and have never failed to deliver an excellent party or service. They ooze great ideas that differentiate from the previous year and always adhere to budget constraints.”
“You did it again! Thanks for all the extensive research over the 5 US destinations. Philadelphia worked perfectly, the conference production team was up to their usual impeccable standard and the Franklin Institute for the gala dinner was absolutely spot-on for the audience. (I wanted to take home that show-stopper of a jazz band!) Thanks for managing us and our deadlines so well, and for being so flexible and efficient on all the last-minute changes. You really have made our events what they are today.”
“As the dust settles and we all catch up on sleep after this week’s incredible event, I wanted to write a little note to say a huge thank you for the colossal effort that you and the team put in to helping us make IDBS Connect such a huge success.”
“Everything was really great, especially the food – a rave review! So thank you very much for making this a success. I look forward to working with you again, and thanks so much for pulling this together on such a tight timeline at the busiest time of year.”
“We had a fantastic experience and the magician really did blow us away with his tricks. You and your team produced a winning format with faultless execution. Leonie was a great host and a big thanks must also go to her for managing such a lively bunch of people. Thank you again for what will be a very memorable night out.”
“It has been a fantastic couple of days and everything really came together at the final event. We spent an hour trying to leave yesterday as we were pleasantly interrupted by our colleagues throughout the business thanking us for such a wonderful event. We have enjoyed working with you and I particularly wanted to say thank you to you and all of your team for being so professional, articulate and so well organised – what a fantastic team.”
“I just wanted to add my thanks to you and your team for a great event last week – the feedback has been amazing and we couldn’t be more pleased.”
“What a great day it was, the format worked really well, the content was pitched just right and technically it all came together. Please pass on our thanks to your guys, they were great and you were amazing. Everyone said it was the best event they have EVER been to and our guest from Cisco and HP said it was better than any event they have ever attended. Everyone has said they feel really valued; they had so much fun and really believe in us as a management team.”
“It’s not easy to make a computer network system look exciting! But you created not only a visually attractive ambience for our product launch, you translated our brand into cutting-edge art and made best use of technology to communicate tangible messages. We’ve had very positive feedback from our audience so another great event – thank you.”
“We love working with BEYOND.”
“BEYOND immediately grasped our objectives, built on them creatively, swiftly and within budget. Nothing was too much trouble. Every detail had been considered and I couldn’t have been happier with the end result. I’m looking forward to working with the BEYOND team again, and to having the same certainty of producing a fun, unique and successful event.”
“My overall impressions of the various elements of BEYOND can only be described in superlatives:
Kate was BRILLIANT from the very first phone call to the end of the event, inclusive…Kate was professional throughout and I hold nothing back in recommending her to anyone who has the wisdom to choose BEYOND. In addition to the incredible production of the event and the professional and accommodating manner in which BEYOND conducted themselves, the entire event was planned and pulled off, on budget and within 6 weeks.
Work ethic? 100%
Quick turnaround? 100%
Crisis management? No idea… didn’t have a major crisis but bet it, too, would have been amazing.”
“Kate and her team were fantastic. They managed to turn around a very polished, yet intimate leaving party in 14 days and pulled out all the stops to ensure that we left London on a high following one of the most memorable parties we had ever been to…Throughout the tight deadline Kate remained calm and unflappable, her creativity was unbelievable and she seemed to know just what we wanted in terms of look, entertainment, menu, in fact everything. All our friends are still talking about the evening.”
“Your management of our event programme, both internal and client, was brilliant. On each and every project you thought around our brief so that our marketing message was communicated clearly and creatively through the event. Your service is second to none and moreover, you care deeply about our success. Thank you.”
“Thank you so much for all your help this year in particular with the Pathfinders Media Employer of the Year Award. Your contribution in planning and marketing ensured a fantastic turn out, enabling us to strengthen existing business relationships. And build new ones.”
“Your intelligent and strategic approach ensures that we focus on the right event for the right audience, maximising our networking opportunities and ensuring that guests are entertained in an unforgettable way. You’re the best!”
“Angela Mortimer PLC has worked with BEYOND as its strategic event partner for the last 3 years. BEYOND has created an annual event programme with us, consulted on internal projects, managed immaculate events and trained staff in how to get the best from them. The team has performed brilliantly every time, focusing not only on a visually impressive and well-run event but on the all-important business objectives and results.”
“Thank you for all the planning, the forward thinking and the detail that went into our event programme. Your local knowledge was fantastic and our guests loved their London 2012 Olympics experience, particularly with such a welcoming, helpful on-site team. But above all your attention to detail was second to none – I am just glad we don’t have to take another look at that mammoth colour-coded spreadsheet again!”
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for organising an absolutely fantastic evening for us.”
