Business Manager Surgical Technologies, Medtronic Inc
Medtronic has participated in numerous medical device conferences over the past several years that Consec has managed, both locally in Australia and overseas. Our experience in dealing with Consec has only ever been positive. Their ability to coordinate, operate and manage conferences is second to none! The company has a "can do attitude" and are always friendly, accommodating, adaptable to change and flexible to deal with.

Many thanks again for your valuable contribution - the meeting's success, was in no small way, a result of your efforts. You must be very proud of your team - we really enjoyed working with them on this project.
General Manager, Vorotek
Consec has managed numerous medical conferences both locally and overseas at which Vorotek has been an exhibitor and/or run workshops. Consec's understanding of the expectations of the Association/Organising Committee, delegates and exhibitor is second to none and makes the events that they run a success for all stakeholders.
Vorotek has found the Consec Team to have a positive friendly attitude and a willingness to "work with you" to achieve a better outcome. Our experience with Consec and the events that they run has been excellent and I would highly recommend there expertise.
ACT Occupational Health & Safety Commissioner
Just a quick note to pass on my thanks for your help with this years' Safety Expo. I was very happy with the way it all went and there was nothing but favourable comments from all of the exhibitors.
Julian van Dijk
SimHealth 2012 Scientific Convenor
My involvement with Consec has been in the role of the Scientific Convenor for SimHealth 2012. This has been a demanding role that has required a close working relationship between the conference committee I chair and staff at Consec. Of the many services that Consec provides in the design and production of a conference, the most valuable has been their ability to be contacted and respond promptly to any enquiries. As a client, I have always been able to call and speak to someone quickly about any concern I have had. Barry and Stacey have made considerable efforts to maintain open and clear communication with all members of the committee regarding any of their concerns or questions.
As a scientific convenor, I have been able to rely on Consec for good advice, prompt responses to issues, questions and status reports without hesitation.
I have enjoyed working with the Consec Team and would highly recommend their services.
Professor Raymond Sacks
Convenor, Australian Society of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery Annual Scientific Meeting.
I can only speak to the highest regard for Barry Neame and his team. Their time management skills were fantastic and he coordinated the entire National Conference and Trade Exhibition without much input from my Scientific Committee and me. He essentially was responsible for the entire budget and fiscal management service with assistance both in securing sponsorship and attending to the sponsor requirements. All conference registration, which included the main conference and four large satellite meetings were all done through Consec and his financial records were impeccable.
Barry was certainly the most approachable conference organizer I have ever had the pleasure of working with and our geographical distance between Sydney and Canberra had no impact on the ease with which the conference was organized.
Subsequent to our success with Barry, we have also utilised him for our annual Australasian Rhinologic Society meetings, which are held each year and again, he was found by our entire executive committee to be fantastic. We also employed his services for a third time in the running of the Australasian Society of Paediatric Otolaryngology meeting in Fiji.
Dr Andrew Stuchbery
Co-convenor, HFINQI Conference
It was a pleasure to work with Barry and the Consec team in organising our international conference on Hyperfine Interactions in Canberra in 2014. Consec has an extensive breadth and depth of experience in conference organisation in Canberra that was evident as they helped us choose the right venues and the right activities for the conference.
During the planning process, Consec kept us on schedule and on budget. The outcome was a successful conference that ran smoothly and was greatly enjoyed by all those who attended, both in the scientific and the social parts of the program.
Managing Director, Med-El Hearing Implants
I have had the pleasure of working with Consec for many years at conferences involving the hearing industry and have found them to be at all times, professional, quick to respond, innovative and personable.
I truly cannot speak highly enough of this company and the team.
My relationship with Consec has been at times as a conference organiser, exhibitor and attendee. They have not disappointed on any of these fronts. Whether interacting with the team as an attendee or in the capacity of managing director of a large international medical device company, the individual services has been extraordinary. Their ability to diplomatically navigate the often conflicting requirements of organisers and exhibitors is impressive to watch.
Our company attends many conferences, large and small, and it is always a relieve to find Consec at the helm.
We were recently involved in two conferences that Consec were organising and took gold level sponsorship for both. This is largely due to our satisfaction with the conferences we have previously attended organised by Consec.
