"Sam made running our online event effortless. His amazing training, event management skills, clever quips and tech savvy knowledge ensured the event was a huge success!"
Sam was so brilliant in the last training session I really want to soak up some more of his enthusiasm and tech wizardry!
FAYE WATSON, MCR-UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW CENTRE FOR VIRUS RESEARCH
“I have been lucky enough to work with Sam on a couple of projects this year, and his knowledge, network and passion for science communication is unrivalled. We have worked together on a diversity of things from grant proposals to in-person delivery at science festivals and I look forward to continuing to work together in future! I would highly recommend Sam for any projects
SAVITA WILMOTT, CHIEF EXECUTIVE, NATURAL HISTORY CONSORTIUM
We worked with Sam on our major public festival. He slipped seamlessly into our existing delivery team, and was an unflappable virtual event producer. He has a huge range of skills that benefitted our team, as well as our festival. We’ll 100% be working with Sam again!
RACHAEL TAPPING, ASSOCIATION FOR SCIENCE & DISCOVERY CENTRES
Working with Sam gave us the confidence to create a conference with lots of sessions, keynotes and opportunities to connect and try out new networking spaces. From organising all the tech checks before the conference, to creating all the links and trouble-shooting, Sam kept everyone in the loop, communicating every step of the way which is vital for an online event
