Re: International Conference on Emergency Medicine 2016, Cape Town, 18-21 April 2016
I am writing to thank you and your staff for your help in making the recent International Conference on Emergency Medicine such a great success.
I particularly appreciate your responsiveness in dealing with the myriad of requests and last minute adjustments that need to be made prior to a large Conference. And in the lead-up over the past year or so, you have been a pleasure to work with. Having worked with many PCO’s over the past six years, I greatly appreciate your efficiency and dedication to making this a wonderful event which certainly met and exceeded our expectations.
I personally enjoyed the warmth and friendly feel of the Conference, and the promotions leading up to the event set the tone.
Please pass on my appreciation to all the members of your team, and once again, thank you for your contribution.

The South African Immunology Society held annual Conferen-ces in 2009 and 2010. The conferences were managed by Jolandi Ackermann's team, which was superb, from the earliest stages of planning, through execution of the actual meetings. It was a pleasure working with this team. Thank you!

Past President, South African Immunology Society
Deborah McTeer is an outstanding conference co-ordinator. Her vast experience and extensive knowledge of the field is seen in the way in which she quickly understands what the questions are that need to be asked and how ideas can realistically be implemented. Her conscientiousness, efficiency and reliability give one the reassurance that things will be done and that one will not be let down. She has assembled a fine team around her who have the same work ethic. And underneath it all there is a sense of wanting to invest in the people of South Africa and to show the world what we are able to offer.

The congress was an incredible success, very well organized, everything went so smoothly at the convention centre, the spirit was great and now even the financial result! Everything you told us about the effectiveness and financial accuracy of Deborah was true.
