Lara is an amazing communicator.

"I recently supported the Australia/NZ Rheumatology Conference in Auckland, I would like to congratulate Lara on the organisation of the Conference. I have attended many Conferences all over the world and have never experienced this level of support. The key to excellent results is communication. I would like to say that Lara is an amazing communicator. She has the ability to communicate and co-ordinate the ideas and values or the organising committee, the sponsors, the venue Teams, the entertainers and the delegates. Lara was present at every part of this amazing journey and listened with respect to her support crew. She obviously has amazing people skills and made the major International Conference happen with no issues whatsoever. Congratulations Lara and well done."

Understands the culture of our organisation.

"Our annual scientific meeting is an extremely important event for the Australian Rheumatology Association – scientifically, financially and culturally. We have been very fortunate to have worked with The Meeting People for several years, and in that time our annual meeting has gone from strength to strength. Lara always makes us feel like we are her most important client. Lara is particularly adept at seamlessly accommodating the needs of the organising committee, the scientific committee, the sponsors and the delegates, as well as providing a superb social programme, so that the meeting always feels greater than the sum of its parts. She has the unique ability to produce a world-class scientific meeting while at the same time providing personal service that totally understands the culture of our organisation."

The meetings were pleasant and stress-free.

"This is to express our delight in writing at the way in which you organised our recent Clare Valley Bone Meeting. With you as our professional conference organiser, the planning meetings were pleasant and stress free because you were always on top of what needed to be done. Your interaction with our sponsors was highly professional and productive. Your dealings with the delegates and invited speakers were organised, friendly and timely, as were your interactions with the venue staff. Your suggestions for improving the meeting and adding innovation were always good, and your eye for aesthetics added something special to our meeting. At the meeting itself, the organisers were enabled to concentrate on the sessions because you took care of everything else so competently. Your preparation for the conference dinner was both wonderful and beyond the call of duty and greatly appreciated by the organisers and guests. In the end, we were able to run an exceptional meeting problem-free because of your careful planning, your friendly helpful manner and your great attention to detail."
