Testimonials from past satisfied clients
Australian Entomological Society
As the immediate past President of the Australian Entomological Society (AES), I was introduced to Dale McIver of Alice Event Management & Consultancy during a site visit to Alice Springs in late 2017.
From the initial meeting and discussions, I was sufficiently impressed with Dale’s level of professionalism and can-do attitude, to appoint her Conference Manager for our National conference the following year.
The expert advice provided coupled with Dale’s knowledge of conference management and dealing with a variety of stakeholders has now led to a long-term professional relationship between the Society and Alice Event Management & Consultancy.
As immediate past National President and the incoming Conference Chairperson for the 2020/21 Conference, I can highly recommend Alice Event Management & Consultancy and Dale McIver to deliver a high quality and smooth running conference. I am confident that skills we value would be those also sought by other organisers of the similar events, and commend them to you enthusiastically.
It was an ambitious plan to host an event in Alice Springs with 120 guests coming in from all over the world. But with Dale of Alice Event Management on the ground in Alice Springs, coordinating every aspect of our event logistics and the many moving parts, made the ambitious plan pay off, big time! Dale’s commitment, professionalism and straight forward approach was absolutely the key to the success of our conference and we loved having her as a part of our team.

Dale, I’m so grateful for the help you gave us in organising the week in Central Australia for our international business partners. Knowing they are experienced and discerning travellers I wanted to give them an experience which took them off the beaten track and gave them some really fantastic memories. And having visited the Centre a number of times myself, I wanted to experience some new things myself too, not the standard tourist fare. You couldn’t have been more helpful. Apart from the expertise and collaboration in designing a program that met our needs and being responsive to changes that we wanted, on the tour itself you gave great service in helping everything run without a hitch. I hadn’t been looking forward to getting people on and off buses and making sure everyone was in the right place at the right time, but it turned out I didn’t need to worry – you managed everything for me, which was fantastic! That meant I could enjoy the journey and be a colleague to my colleagues, not their tour guide!
I must say also that you were greatly loved by my colleagues, who came from four continents; they had nothing but praise for your style and manner, and I’m sure you’ll be a great part of the memories they returned home with.

In April 2017, the Department of Health engaged Dale McIver, the Director of Alice Event Management and Consultancy to be the event manager for a small national workshop held in Alice Springs. Dale proved to be very professional in her approach; she was energetic, efficient, flexible and thoughtful. She was clearly focused on delivering the best outcome for her client, and was a pleasure to work with.

Dale has had an involvement on and off with the iconic Rotary Henley on Todd Regatta since 2006. During this time, she has built-up long-term relationships with Rotarians from all three local clubs, long term event volunteers, sponsors and local event suppliers.
Dale has been instrumental in growing the sponsorship of the event over the past years to now record levels of sponsorship with both cash and in-kind support contributions. Dale’s relationship with these sponsors is extremely positive and has seen them turn into long standing sponsors and supporters of the Regatta.
Dale’s customer service is first class and she will always go the extra mile to ensure satisfaction by our customers, suppliers, sponsors and volunteers. She is protective of the Rotary and Henley on Todd Brands and ensures safeguarding of the events IP and confidential material.
