This is the kind of service I appreciate when running a large scale conference and what keeps me working with Marg and the team at Great Expectation.

  • As the organiser for the annual strategic executive conference  I need to be fussy about who arranges our keynote speakers. These speakers are normally on the international circuit and time poor so it is the fine detail that needs to be sorted out - I use Great Expectation because that is exactly what I have and I get - Key note speakers who are thoroughly briefed and the logistical detail taken care of.
