Client Testimonial...

The 2021 conference obviously posed many challenges in an environment in which we all find ourselves at the moment. However, our decision to engage Consec certainly proved to be the right one! The attendance at the virtual conference this year exceeded our wildest expectations. Working with the Consec team proved to be a dream – working through the requirements for the conference, the design and operation of the website for registrations and the operation of the portal on the days were all excellent, and our team are highly appreciative of all the efforts you and your team put in.

Since the conference, numerous stakeholders have contacted me to say how much they enjoyed the event, and many of them complementing the highly professional nature of the production and the ease of use of the portal as key points.

I look forward to working with you again for the 2022 conference.

Client Testimonial...

The inaugural AGLS Conference 2021 was the long awaited flagship event for Australian government lawyers. Given the evolving situation around the COVID-19 pandemic, planning and delivering this event was not without its challenges, however the professional and experienced team at Consec ensured that pivoting from a face-to-face event to an entirely online event, happened as smoothly as possible. Consec's intuitive and user-friendly online platform enabled the event to reach government lawyers all around the country and resulted in the highest number of registrations ever received for an event of this nature – 920 government lawyers! Consec provided responsive and timely support to the committee. Consec also provided effective support to the event presenters and panellists, including facilitating practice runs of the online platform ahead of the event to avoid, as much as possible for an entirely online event, issues arising on the day. The committee has received what it considers to be outstanding feedback from conference attendees, and is very grateful for the services Consec provided. Consec's 'pulse' and 'end of the day surveys', and event report, have ensured the committee and AGLS Board has ample feedback from conference attendees to inform its approach to future conferences.

Thanks to Barry, Abby and Kathryn for their step by step guidance and support as this went a long way to ensuring the success of the event!
