  • Thank you so much for your support over the last two or so weeks at the Teach First Summer Institute. Our IT team is so grateful for all the hard work and help you have given us and the rest of the Summer Institute team. I shall look forward to next year and wish you all the very very best.
    Robert Perkins, IT Service Desk Team Leader, Teach First
  • We just wanted to say a huge thank you for looking after us and helping make our Science Inter-Cohort day run so smoothly. On the day, you were brilliant – so helpful and supportive – the day was really smooth and seamless because of your support and professionalism. You came up with solutions for our rather complicated and ambitious event in Science for which we are really grateful. Thank you! I hope you do have some rest this summer and hope we get an opportunity to work together in the future.
    Simon Tresidder, Curriculum Assessment Lead for Science, Teach First
  • A huge thank you for everything you did to make everything work so smoothly over the last two weeks.  You and your team were brilliant at solving problems and sorting things out.  This was not without it's challenges and I suspect I only know part of it!  With your team in place, nothing impacted on the participants and their experience of sessions. You and your team dealt with everything with kindness, calmness and good humour.  Nothing was too much for you.  The tutor team from the first week were all really grateful for your help and support, especially with resource management.  Your support went above and beyond what was expected and this really contributed to a positive experience at the University of Leeds.
    Helen Taylor, Curriculum and Assessment Lead, Teach First
  • A huge thank you to you and your team for hosting us at University House. This is the first time a first time a World Series Triathlon event has been hosted in Leeds andwas hugely important to us in order to welcome our partners. The welcome and drinks reception was presented warmly by your team. The dinner itself was delicious, presented beautifully and number of our international guests commented on this. Service was both efficient and discreet, I could not have hoped for better. It is our hope that the partnership between The University of Leeds and British Triathlon continues to develop and grow both in terms of sport and business development.
    Linda Haywood, Portfolio Manager and Lead Safeguarding Officer, British Triathlon
  • I just want to thank you for hosting the NASMA event so brilliantly.  Everyone who attended was impressed both with the venue and facilities. The organisation from start to finish was so easy and stress free, which makes a very welcome change to past events I have organised - so the behind the scenes work is really appreciated!
    Alison Jackson, Student Education Service Manager, University of Leeds
  • Your attention to detail astounds me – from when we first muted the idea with you Anthony until John’s team put the last plate on the table – everything has been superb.  The presentation of the room on Saturday was tasteful and offered the right tone to the day.
    Ruth McMorran, Communication Matters Board Member
  • The conference is well supported by MEETinLEEDS, the University Conference team: Leeds is one of the few city venues that have good disabled access for a high number of people who use wheelchairs and plenty of good quality accommodation to meet their needs.

  • Thank you for making our event such a huge success. The planning of the event was made really easy by your professional Sales & Marketing Team who were always happy to help. The venue was perfect for us and looked incredible and the food was beautiful with a fantastic choice available and excellent service. We would definitely hope to hold any of our future events at the Refectory. Thank you from the Estates & Facilities Directorate at St James's Hospital
    Karen Beilby, PA to Assistant Director of Facilities and Senior HR Manager, Estates & Facilities, St James's Hospital
  • The dinner was excellent and the service very professional and discreet – it was a lovely end to what had been a successful day.
    Alison Suckall, Leeds Social Sciences Institute
  • The concept of sitting at a dining table whilst listening to the songs in a concert hall was totally unexpected and thoroughly enjoyable. The food was excellent, very well prepared and good value for our money (much better and more than the billed 'light supper' suggested)... ...The 'listen while you dine' format worked wonderfully well, and I very much hope that it is repeated (often!). Big congratulations to everyone  concerned with the arrangements, the catering and of course the performance.
    Jillian Johnson MBE, Artistic Director, International Concert Series, Leeds University School of Music
  • Every year, the Leeds University conference and events team provide us with a brilliant service when we hold our graduation ceremony. The venue is good value for money and the team are extremely helpful – nothing is ever too much trouble and the level of support we receive helps us to ensure one of our flagship events always runs smoothly. I can’t sing their praises highly enough.
    Zoe Ward, Marketing Events Officer, Leeds City College
  • The lovely ladies in Parkinson Court were so accommodating at the recent Graduate Jobs and Internship Fair. Their welcoming smiles and excellent customer service skills really made the day.
    Glenys Hastings, Employer Liaison Manager, University of Leeds Careers Centre
  • On the day, we had a "full house" of 47 trainee Orthopaedic Surgeons sitting the exam. It would have been impossible for me, on my own, to have logged in all the PC's at the same time as recording the doctors' names on my register. The UKITE exam is an important national event, so I was a bit concerned about everything going to plan etc., but I needn't have worried - I found the I.T. Support staff extremely helpful. As a result, it all went very smoothly, and I did in fact receive a message from one of our doctors to thank me for how organised it all was!
    Mandy Sedler, Admin. Coordinator - Medical Education, Leeds Teaching Hospitals
  • Thanks again for everything ICFS10!!!!!!!!!
    Daniel Parsons, Professor in Process Sedimentology, University of Hull
  • Thank you for working so hard and helping to create an excellent, memorable and well-run conference. It really was one of the best organized i have ever attended. Thanks again for all your hard work. It paid off.
    Douglas J. Jerolmack, Associate Professor, University of Pennsylvania
  • We will not hesitate to contact you again should we be planning such a big event. Many thanks for your help and support.
    Pat Hart, Cardiovascular Research
  • Thank you for all your help with the bookings and catering for the 3rd University of Leeds Student Education Conference. I am pleased to tell you that we had our best attendance yet of 447 delegates and the feedback has been excellent! I would just like to say a big thank you to you and your team for the smooth running and professional service before and on the day. It really does make all the difference.
    Rebecca Shaw, Learning & Teaching Support Officer, Student Opportunity and Enhancement, University of Leeds
  • I just wanted to send a heartfelt thank you for all of your help, advice, time and general conference wisdom over the last few months, especially the last two days. The conference would seem to have been a success, in no small part to the role of you and your team. I will be recommending you to anyone who asks and anyone who doesn’t!
    Dr Mark Davis, Lecturer in Sociology and Director of the Bauman Institute
  • What are the benefits of the University’s conference management services? “Peace of mind, attention to detail, professional competency and knowledge, impressive and welcoming front to delegates, financial and accounting proficiency and the ability to answer the variety of questions posed by delegates
    Robin Le Poidevin, School of Philosophy

    David Williams, Dept. of Colour & Polymer Chemistry
