Mr Jeevan Chandrasenan

Lead Convenor  - Virtual Orthopaedic Clinicals 2020

"From literally a concept and an idea of delivering a form of clinical patient-centred teaching through a virtual format, EMD have helped to deliver the first ever Virtual Orthopaedic Clinicals on the 1st and 2nd October 2020. During the event we showcased over 14 lectures and 60 professionally pre-videoed and edited clips of real patients from all sub-specialties. This educational event was delivered live through a webinar format with expert faculty providing additional live discussion-based teaching on the day, whilst answering questions from over 120 delegates from around the world. The EMD team surpassed all expectations in ensuring the whole process from beginning to end was completed to the highest standard.  It was truly a pleasure to work with a team who understood our philosophy of delivering high quality education and we look forward to our next project together"

Dr Mark Pauling

Meeting Organiser - SASWR Virtual Scientific Meeting 2020

"Thank you to all at Event Management Direct and Talking Slides for helping make such a success of our Society of Anaesthetists of the South West Region meeting. In an exceptionally short space of time you made our meeting not only possible, but a great event. Your flexibility with changing from a hybrid meeting to a fully virtual one at the last minute due to lockdown showed excellent determination to support our society and see us through. The professionalism of all, and accessibility not only to the organisers but our trade sponsors and presenters was superb. You were first class throughout, and the finished article was of the highest standard. Thanks so much"

Dr Jim Hoyle

Local Organiser - NACCS  

"We really enjoyed working with Event Management Direct. We have a new found respect and understanding of the role of an event management company. The team thought about details and elements that would never have even crossed our mind to ensure the smooth running of the event on the lead up to the conference and on the day itself"


Dr David Mulvey

President - Society for Intravenous Anaesthesia  

"It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for Jane Heppenstall and her colleagues at Event Management Direct (EMD).


My personal association with Jane and her colleagues started when I joined the Society for Intravenous Anaesthesia (SIVA) committee in 2012. It was clear to me immediately what a vital role EMD played in the smooth functioning of committee business, and in the organisation of the Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM).


It is not an exaggeration to say that the ASM would not be possible without the efforts of the EMD personnel, from the initial planning stage to delivery of the final occasion. EMD manage all aspects of communication with potential venues, speakers and trade exhibitors. Their skill, huge experience and knowledge show repeatedly in these negotiations to the benefit of SIVA.


Since I assumed the role of Society president in 2018, I have found EMD’s help indispensable. The team facilitates all administrative aspects of my position, and undertakes the tasks I ask of them with speed, efficiency and thoroughness, no matter how great, small or difficult they may be.


EMD personnel show great professionalism and attention to detail in their work; and if this was not enough, the team members are friendly personable folk whom it is a pleasure to know.


I cannot recommend Event Management Direct highly enough"

Dr Adam Pichel

Committee Member - VASGBI

"I consider Jane and her team at EMD to be an integral part of the VASGBI. They have consistently demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and commitment that are required to stage a successful conference. We can rely on them to cover all the bases. That’s why we are still working with EMD after 20 years."
