Client Testimonials

"Our vision was to create the best College ASM meeting there had ever been.  Jo and Jill fully embraced our ambition and together with our scientific committee, we achieved record numbers of delegates for a NZ College ASM,  and attracted a terrific level of sponsorship.  More importantly, both the trade and delegates enjoyed a terrific meeting with a superb scientific programme and amazing social functions including a spectacular gala dinner at the Viaduct Event Centre attended by 900 people and completely overseen by Jo and Jill.

We received numerous accolades from a host of attendees including the College President, the College CEO, and many in the trade who felt their investment had been worthwhile, which was due to the innovative way Outshine manage sponsor relationships with an emphasis on truly providing value for money.  Another of their hallmarks, is to ensure ongoing, accurate communication in a timely fashion to all stakeholders, from international and national speakers, the college secretariat, sponsors, exhibitors, enquiring delegates and especially us as convenors.  Nothing is too much trouble for Jill and Jo and they accommodated our perfectionism with grace and at many times managed to trump even us on their attention to detail, the key ingredient to ensuring the highest quality function or event.

Particularly gratifying were the many glowing comments from our international speakers who are on the conference circuit, more than one of whom felt that this was the best meeting they had ever attended! In short, I can wholeheartedly recommend and endorse Jo Kelk and Jill Schirnack and their team at Outshine.

"The organizers of the ANZSPR 2013 Waiheke Island October 20 – 23 (Australia and New Zealand Society of Paediatric Radiology) would like to thank Jill Schirnack and Outshine for the major part they played in the success of our annual meeting. Their expertise, professionalism and friendly calm approach is all that we could have asked for, and we were frequently complemented by many of our 70 delegates on our choice of conference organizers."

"It is our experience that Outshine operate in a professional manner, with a high level of responsiveness and communication and in particular, maintained a solid management plan and conference budget. As co-convenors Outshine made our job significantly easier, in particular co-ordinating and negotiating with vendors regarding sponsorship and the organisation of the many aspects of the scientific and social programme.
We have employed Outshine on a number of occasions for conference organising, and have had excellent feedback from delegates regarding these conferences. We continue to use Outshine as our conference organisers whenever possible.
We are pleased to recommend Outshine services to other facilitators and convenors seeking a highly professional and creative conference organising company."

"I have no hesitation in attributing the success of this meeting entirely to the energetic, enthusiastic, friendly team from Outshine. Their experience in organising medical conference shows at every stage; be it obtaining sponsorship (even during the turmoil in the economic sector), international speakers, local venues, entertainment/ catering, registrations, website design etc. The feed back from the industry, delegates, international speakers and the RANZCR administrators had been unanimous and extremely positive with regards the excellent efforts of the Outshine team.
I can state quite openly that organising the conference had not only been stress free but actually enjoyable due to the skills and experience of the Outshine team."
