Optomeyes Team Building Singing Workshop, May 2010
(led by Jane Christie-Johnston)
"Our group of 50+ staff had the most inspiring and surprising workshop at our Staff Development Weekend this month. The way that Jane was able to bring out the singer in each of us was smooth and encouraging, and before we knew it we were making a beautiful sound in 3 part harmony! The strong singers encouraged the more reluctant staff initially, but we needn’t have worried about prompting the group throughout the session ... they were enthused by Jane into singing from the beginning, and we had a few surprising performances from some staff! We are still hearing glowing feedback from staff, and this session will be talked about for years to come."
- Hannah Sun, Human Resources Manager, Optomeyes
NARSA Quiz Night, July 2009
“I would like to extend our sincere thanks to you for the great quiz night your wonderful team provided at our conference in Hobart. The atmosphere you created, which quickly initiated the great rivalry between all the teams, was very impressive. The questions and the method of scoring were excellent. ... There is no doubt that a professionally organised quiz night is the only way to go, and you certainly provided that for NARSA. And this, together with the humour that you introduced to the evening absolutely ensured its success. Once again, our thanks to you for a wonderful evening."
- Gary Stokes, CEO, National Association for Rural Student Accommodation Inc.
Iris Financial Scavenger Hunt, February 2009
“It was a pleasure working with you and the team at Ta-Daa! Professional Entertainment. The Hobart City Challenge was exceptionally well organised and a lot of fun for the entire group. The vast majority of our delegates had not been to Hobart previously and this was a great way for them to get out and see the city and surrounds. We held the event on the afternoon of the third day of the conference and as it turned out it acted as a terrific energiser leading into the conference close and the Gala Dinner that night.”
- Geoff Counsel, Iris Financial Group

We had a great time laughing our way into 2009 - as did all our guests. We will be looking at more such events this year and will highly recommend you to others. Many thanks.”
- Peter and Anne Niven, Giants' Table and Cottages, Maydena
