On behalf of the Cleveland Pools Trust, I cannot speak highly enough about the friendly and efficient Team at Morgan-Brinkhurst Consultancy.

From the beginning Loraine and her staff have been exceedingly helpful in organizing the sending out of invitations on our behalf, booking a photographer for the event and organizing all the publicity with local magazines. Loraine has been very accountable in regularly reporting to us as trustees, consulting and informing us throughout the lead up to the launch event and fundraising project.

The sponsorship packages produced by Ralph Allen Press, with Trustee input and Loraine’s sponsorship package creation expertise, have been much admired for their professional appearance.

The Bath Spa Hotel launch reception went extremely well, in part due to Loraine’s capable planning and welcoming approach. The Trustees could not have achieved such a successful event without her help and we are extremely grateful.

I have no hesitation in recommending them.

"I was really inspired by the amazing work that you do at the Olympic Arts Project and the impact that it has made on many people’s lives. The artwork produced by participants was fantastic and it was great to see the difference you are clearly making. You should be very proud of the project and the work you have put into it - particularly the dedication you have shown towards fundraising and securing high profile ambassadors from the world of sport.

I wish you every success in the future as your work continues to grow, Keep up the good work! "

"It was a wonderful experience to stage the first ever High Sheriff of Somerset's Concert in the magnificent setting of Bath Abbey. What can I say but a HUGE thanks to Loraine and her team at Morgan-Brinkhurst Consultancy for making my charity concert so successful.

It could not have gone better and I really appreciate all the hard work they put in leading up to and including the concert and well into the early hours after the concert. I was inundated with very effusive e mails of thanks and how fantastically well the whole concert was received by the concert goers.

It was important for me to hold the concert in Bath. Bath has been the family home for many years and having the whole family performing at the concert was very special, and a new experience for Jamie and his band. I am gratified by the fantastic range of sponsors who supported this concert and by the professional organisation of the whole event that has raised significant charitable funds and generated so much appreciative feedback from the sell-out audience."

"Loraine and the wider Morgan Brinkhurst consultancy team are an absolute pleasure to have worked with. After a referral to the company I was delighted to see the enthusiasm, creativity and professionalism of the team from the outset right through to after the event. I was thoroughly impressed by the wide network that the company had built and also how highly regarded the organisation was to many people in Bath. Loraine worked very proactively with me to understand my key goals for the event, and not only delivered on each goal, but also added considerable further value.

The event had a great atmosphere and was successfully covered in the local press.

We look forward to continuing our relationship with the team."

Sweetland Music Festival September 2010

Organisers Simon & Angela Calvert-Jones said:-
"By far the greatest influence in making everything come together with the launch of the Sweetland Music Festival was the invaluable help of Events Co-ordinator Loraine Morgan-Brinkhurst. Loraine was the most active Event’s Organiser you could ever wish for! Words like dynamic, enthusiastic, supportive, and dedicated come to mind, particularly as we received emails sent at 5.00 am and others at well past 11.00 pm!

Loraine is incredibly generous with her continued support and invaluable help. Not surprising to find she was voted runner up in the Bath Evening Chronicles ‘Woman of the Year 2009’"

Following attending a Cocktails & Canapés evening held at Wellsway BMW showroom in October 2009, we received the following comments.

Nod Knowles, Chief Executive of Bath Festivals Ltd said:-
"It was really lively and enjoyable - in imaginatively different surroundings and with exceptional and unusual food and drinks. Networking events such as this one can create a whole new set of contacts and relationships in an energetic, relaxed atmosphere. You overturned the tedium of the all-too familiar network meetings - business suits, badges, warm white wine and the same old faces – and gave all of us the opportunity to meet and share the company and ideas of a much wider and fresher range of people.
If networking is like fishing then you gave us fresh, fast flowing water rather than the old stagnant pool in which to cast our nets. With thanks and congratulations"

Jim Whitfield of JD Lettings, Bath said:-
"JD LETTINGS would like to congratulate you (Loraine & Vivien) and your team on the excellent well run event at the recent BMW event in Bath. Not only nice refreshments, but also good to meet other business people who I am sure exchanged many business cards on the evening. One of the best events that I have attended. Thank you"

Loraine and her Team did a fantastic job in bringing together and running a project group linked to the promotion of our new University theatre as well as helping us invite patrons to support the students and the Theatre. Thanks got to Loraine and with her credibility she helped us bring on board as patrons Ken Loach the film director actors Stephanie Cole and Clive Mantle.

Loraine and her team also organised the promotions and publicity for the theatre including the arrangements for a showcase reception and the launch reception officially opened by film director Mike Leigh. We would recommend Morgan-Brinkhurst Consultancy for the professional and creative way they work and the continued support they give to their clients.

"Ideas, enthusiasm and action" These are the three words that spring to mind as soon as I think of Loraine. I first met her many years ago. And now ten years on and scores of projects later, she has become a truly exceptional events organiser, able to turn dreams into reality. She has vision. She is extremely dedicated and won't rest until she's done her very best. Most of all she's a lovely person, who's always a pleasure to work with.

"Loraine Morgan-Brinkhurst was instrumental in organising a very important lunch reception for us during the Marlborough Jazz Festival 2005. Loraine was recommended to us and in a short space of time she organised and turned the event around, it was truly excellent.

Loraine drew together all aspects from the flower arrangements, the catering and the wine, she organised the invitation letters to our guests, the replies and the ticket distribution, everything ran extremely smoothly.

We have no hesitation in recommending her in the future and have done so in our report to our board."

"Send a Cow have been working with the Morgan-Brinkhurst Consultancy to help raise our profile locally within the Bath area.

Loraine is a very keen supporter of Send a Cow and it has been great using her expertise and enthusiasm to run a number of successful fundraising events.

Her excellent networking and organisational skills have been a real boost to Send a Cow helping us to become a locally recognised charity"

"Loraine is very organized and thinks of every little detail. She not only comes up with great ideas, but also writes up the action points, and the plans and most importantly delivers"

Jo Woods

She is dynamic, she is enthusiastic, she is thorough and she makes things happen. When I started organising my Tsunami Charity dinner and my Send A Cow Jazz Garden Party it was made so much easier by asking Loraine to help. Her calm approach to things gave me so much confidence I knew that both events were going to be successful and together they raised in excess of £5000.

Since then the hotel has engaged Loraine to do some marketing, PR and research for us. I felt that with her knowledge of the local area and contacts who else could and produce results like her. I would have no hesitation is engaging her services again and again and would recommend them to ANY organisation or company.
