I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to you and all the Ovation Team for putting together an amazing trip. Everyone who attended the trip really enjoyed themselves and we’ve had great feedback. Thanks to your amazing organisational skills both Natasha and I were able to enjoy the trip rather than worry about what we were doing and what was happening next. Madrid is an amazing city and I can’t wait to visit again – although next time I won’t be bringing 30 work colleagues with me!
Horizon was a great experience and from what I heard so far, the participants really enjoyed it, too. A very big THANK YOU to Annabelle and you, both of you were amazing and ensured a smooth running in all situations.
I want to send you and your team my big big THANK YOU for supporting us so well with this huge event. This event was a great success and the perfect handling of the ground services was one important criteria why participants were really happy and satisfied. I appreciate very much that you were not only taking care of transfers and restaurant reservations but were so cautious in all aspects, e.g. to organize on your own the cloakroom in the CCIB which originally has not been your assigned task………..this showed me your identification with the meeting and with your job – I am really impressed by your dedication and your service and customer orientation.
As always your support during the Breathing COPD Edition was amazing.
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for your hard work on behalf of the ancillary team this week. I know it isn’t finished yet and we still have tomorrow to go but so far it has been great. The feedback we have had so far from everyone has been amazing and everyone has complimented the venues and services so thank you. I also wanted to make sure that you knew how pleased we have been this year with your temp staff. Ester is amazing and the 4 we had in CC4 and CC5 (Leticia, Anne-Laure, Borja and Maria) have been the best by far that we have ever had so thank you. It makes such a difference to have a capable, pro-active, friendly, efficient and professional team of people in our area as we host so many business meetings and they have been exceptional this year. Hope you manage to get some sleep finally and thank you again! Look forward to working with you again soon Kind regards, Alex.
