Paardekooper and Associates commands an excellent understanding of not only our diverse cultures in Aotearoa New Zealand, but in working with Pasifika. As a Samoan, this was very important as this was the first time we as Pasifika professionals from across the Information Management Sector gained the opportunity to convene the 2019 LIANZA conference.

Paardekooper and Associates are the driving force of innovation and inspiration. I believe a major strength with Paardekooper is their shared vision for organising conference or an event that everyone will remember for good reasons. As a convenor, I know I can relax and actually attend the conference, because they are absolutely on the ball. They provide vision and support beyond expectations.

Paardekooper provided a comprehensive and professional service covering every aspect of organising and running a major two-day conference. Every detail was managed efficiently, with nothing missed. The team were exceptionally easy to deal with and very proactive in the lead-up to the Conference, which was extremely well received by delegates.  I highly recommend the team at Paardekooper.”

Paardekooper and Associates were very professional in their approach and nothing was ever a bother. They had an excellent understanding of the financial aspect including the importance of achieving budget. In fact, the conference returned a greater surplus than budgeted for which was especially pleasing.

Peter Thompson, President, School Business Managers’ Association, 2019

Paardekooper have organised five major international academic conferences on my behalf. All of these conferences were an outstanding success, not least because of the organisational prowess of Paardekooper and Associates. The team are clearly comfortable and familiar with organising large international conferences. The systems that they have in place are exemplary and the team itself are highly personable and unflappable. I would have had absolutely no hesitation in employing them again.

In recent years, we employed the services of Paardekooper and Associates for two significant public conferences. We were very impressed by how both events progressed smoothly and successfully in ways which can only be attributed to the high level of professionalism, commitment and organisation of the Paardekooper team. We have no reservations in recommending them and would welcome the opportunity to work with them again.
