Sharon Smith organized two two-day events at which I was one of the featured motivational speakers. In addition to speaking to 200 plus people each day I delivered inspirational workshops bolted on the front and back of the day. As this was my first time speaking in front of a crowd that large I was a bit nervous but from the outset Sharon provided a professional yet relaxed framework that helped me through the process. From the initial email enquiring as to my availability and interest to the subsequent coffee conversation where we choreographed the day plan it was clear that Sharon had a mastery of her profession. What might have been more important was the friendly accessibility that Sharon offered every step of the way. I would highly recommend Sharon for any type of event management.

Billy Zima - CEO Identity Artworks, Edinburgh, Scotland

I met Sharon when I was a running workshops at two events she was responsible for. Sharon is an exceptionally capable and professional event organiser. She kept me updated re developments prior to the event, and then on the day, she was very efficient and managed other staff members. Both events ran seamlessly and I do believe it was down to Sharon’s management style and dedication to providing a first class event. The events were high profile and had excess 700+ people attending. I can be contacted in person, should anyone wish further information.

Louise Weightman - Owner, Aproach the Coach, Glasgow, Scotland

Angela and Sharon organised a "Stars in Your Eyes" Event in 2011. This involved audience participation, and they encouraged volunteers to provide entertainment throughout the evening in order to raise funds for Cancer Research UK. The Venue location and interior decoration was stunning and was perfect for such an event. The evening was full of fun with focus on fundraising - but not so overpowering that it was off putting, therefore, making an enjoyable night for all, and raised significant funds for Cancer Research UK. I had a a fantastic time, and hope to attend future events and would have no hesitation in recommending them for other people's events.
