The workshop was more than I expected. I learnt a lot more about how associations should operate and I picked up a lot of ideas which will make my job a lot easier.

Angela Smith
Australian Institute of Non Destructive Testing

Just like to say thank you for a very informative session. Not only did I gain knowledge but I started to implement it once I got back into the office. Would recommend to everyone running a first time conference. Great job and great session.

Carol Hassan
Vinyl Council of Australia

This workshop is invaluable for anyone planning to run a conference. The insights from professionals working in this area will help us with all of our meetings, events and conferences into the future.

Daryl Snowdon
Field and Game Australia

Nick is very easy to listen to and spoke in a way that is very easy to understand. His excellent knowledge and experience made this course highly informative

Donna Mc Donald
Crane Industry Council Australia

Our professional certification of members CAQP has had a great uptake, and we're making great strides in a few other areas, particularly in providing more value to our members. It has certainly put the focus back on the number of activities and of course the benefits of additional income that that will bring.

Doug Boody
Vice President
Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand

Nick has been the front man in negotiations as a service provider to my organisation. He is pleasant to deal with, understanding of our needs and of the highest integrity.

Dr Marc Duldig
Australian Institute of Physics

Covered most topics very well know we are not alone in managing an association

Gina Clanfield

Great opportunity to compare my association with others

Jillian Custance
Aust & New Zealand Burn Association

I would like to thank you for all of your assistance over the past few years. You were extremely helpful back three years ago when I was restructuring the VMTA and were very generous with your time. I have since learnt a lot from you and the AES materials and sessions and would have no hesitation in recommending AES to other associations.

Julie Haskell
Victorian Music Teachers' Association

Really enjoyed the workshop, great opportunity to network and it gave me a great overview of not for profit associations. Well done  

Karyn Szulc
Executive Officer
Australasian Cemeteries and Crematoria Association

On behalf of the Australian Forging Group I would like to thank AES for their support and guidance during a period of significant change for us. The professionalism and experience of your team ensured the total process was smooth and enjoyable

Leo Talevski
Australian Forging Group

Well prepared, professionally presented, good knowledge and experience and format”

Mike Slattery
Lacrosse Association Inc

I want to thank Nick for his contribution to my professional development. He gives generously of his time, sharing his experience and deep knowledge of the Third Sector, tempered with both humour and gravity. He has the capacity to quickly appreciate individual, sometimes quite labyrinthine ways of associations, to succinctly sum up their strengths and weaknesses. Nick is not only concerned with supporting Association Managers. He is also very wise in the ways of managing Boards. He is a Big Picture professional. During the time in which I have worked with Nick I have benefited in ways too numerous to mention.

Olwyn Gray
Executive Officer
Council of Professional Teaching Associations of Victoria

My experience at the AFPG9( 2011) Conference was absolutely wonderful. Given the size of the meeting and all the different items that you needed to deal with, it was pleasing to note that there was no catastrophic disorder. The convention site was quite adequate and cozy. I did notice that the registration went smooth – you had adequate manpower to handle the prepaid as well as the onsite registrants. The Welcome Reception with the aboriginal performance set the pace to a promising start. Loading of the presentations and connectivity to individual rooms appeared flawless. The lunch were well organized – no real long lines and the food was quite decent. Arrangements for the AFPG9 Premiere Lunch were absolutely near-perfect. The way you ended up organizing, screening, the table layout, the wine service, all of it was better than what I expected. The networking tours added greatly to the charm. Finally, that banquet social was unbelievably pleasant. Good setting of round tables where guests could chat, good food, good wine, and wonderful cultural program by the natives. I will remember that for many years to come

Professor Arun Varshneya

Well rounded information and examples on all areas of associations

Sally McElhemy
Galvanizers Association

We are an Incorporated Association with a strong charitable purpose and are evolving, therefore we joined AES to have the opportunity to access much needed professional advice and support. We have found the service from AES to be incredibly personal and also very patient with our needs and requests. The help and guidance from Nick Koerbin has been excellent, he has worked alongside us since we joined, and has been very diligent in making recommendations and encouraging us to access webinars to enhance our knowledge. Thank you for all of your support.

Sheree Lette and Kate Rengey
President and Vice President
Friends of Korogwe Inc.

I am writing on behalf of the Board of Management of Crime Stoppers Victoria Ltd to thank you for your guidance, facilitation and support in the development of the Strategic Plan for Crime Stoppers Victoria.

I would like to also thank you personally for the assistance you provided to us here at Crime Stoppers. Your input helped us to identify many areas where improved systems needed to be developed.

As you know our results over the last twelve months were the best ever for the Crime Stoppers program, your input and professional advice to our team helped us all to achieve those results.

I sincerely wish you all the best for the future and hope that many other organisations, like us, will have the opportunity to engage you to identify and develop strategic business needs.
