Corporate Event Testimonials – Client Love & Thank Yous

corporate event testimonials

Just a smattering of the corporate event client testimonials we’re proud to share.

A once in a lifetime event, and it would not have been the great success that it was without you.

Thank you so much for bringing our Lunch in the Fields dream to life. The photos say it all. Incredible job. Incredible day. Can’t wait for the next one. Your passion and professionalism was second to none.

Peter Gilmore, Executive Chef, Quay

The farm event was such a success – I have received feedback from the chefs, journalists and critics saying that they had the most wonderful time. Normally these folk turn up to these events, dutifully, and “do” the event then go home.

This time, they had a wonderful and exciting day out, and were swept up with the energy of the day.

It was a smashing success, and thank you and your team for making it a splendid day.

As someone said to me – not a rusty bucket or rolling pin in sight!

It was fresh, and not contrived in anyway. A great success!

John Fink, Director, Fink Group, Quay + Otto Ristorante

We absolutely loved what you created for us and our client Gatorade – and that you managed to execute such a great event in three days during the Xmas/New Year break.

Your ideas and props answered the brief 10o% by theming our sporting event with a stylish touch, and the added extras on the day made the event truly special.

I also really appreciated the attention to detail along the way and on the day, the accuracy in adhering to our client’s brand specifications and budget, and the speed with which you responded to requests.

We would not hesitate to use your services again, or recommend you to others.

Deb Salmons, Account Manager, The Marketing Syndicate

 As an insolvency firm dealing with multiple corporate clients we require exemplary levels of service and presentation at each of our corporate events.

For this reason we have used Alicia and her team at Form Over Function as our key delivery partner for all our major Sydney events since 2010.

Alicia’s ideas are exceptional, unique and tailored perfectly for each space and brief.

The team’s delivery appears effortless and their attention to detail outstanding. It is a true testament to their capabilities that we have become accustomed to out guests remarking how impressed they were after each particular event.

Rebecca Hindson, Manager, Cor Cordis


Form Over Function has been Ironbridge’s exclusive event planner for ten years.

From day one, Alicia and her team have been an amazing asset.

Her wonderful and creative ideas, dedication to detail and determination have always without fail resulted in high end, stylish and most importantly worry-free events.

We would happily recommend the team at Form Over Function to any company wanting to execute a professional & exciting event that exceeds all expectations.

Susie Reppel, Ironbridge

The NRL would like to thank you for your creation of the beautiful decorations which lit up the function room for our Christmas Party.

The feedback was absolutely fantastic!

Those upside Christmas trees, with all the other decorative elements, created the perfect atmosphere we were anticipating.

Again, thank you very much.

Rhys Wigham, People and Culture Administrator, National Rugby League

We LOVE everything about Form Over Function – your style, your attention to detail, your overall interaction with us as a venue and especially our clients.

Dajana Culek, Event Sales Manager, Centennial Parklands Dining

Form Over Function are by far the best styling and decorative company in Australia today.

They were our first choice for our inaugural SugarLove Masterclass event. Creative Director, Alicia Larriera understood our brief and concept from the first meeting and succeeded in bringing to life a red carpet opening night event followed by the set design and student lecture rooms for our 2 day Masterclass with minimal direction.

Alicia’s exceptional taste with colour scheme, florals and lighting was perfectly aligned to our client/sponsor affiliations and our PR campaign. As the producer of over 200 weddings per year along with global advertising and film/PR campaigns I have handpicked many companies and individual freelancers over the last decade and after experiencing Form Over Function’s work ethic and final delivery first hand I would have no hesitation engaging their services for any of our client work in the future.

Leigh Taylor, Managing Director, SugarLove Pictures

Form Over Function did a spectacular job at styling one of my company’s major events for the year, our 100th birthday.

Managing Director Alicia Larriera’s enthusiasm, creative ideas and ability to bring a theme to life were undoubtedly a highlight for me.

I would definitely recommend Alicia to other companies/people in the event industry.

I do hope you realise how very beautiful your work was at the Centennial Parklands Foundation Evergreen dinner on Saturday and how every single person appreciated it.

Thank you very, very much. Many people told me how wonderful it was, and I was happy to be able to pass on your name.

Again, many thanks.

Thank you for helping us to create yet another magnificent Brandenburg Spring Dinner at Government House.

The styling of the room and table decorations were wonderful and we received many compliments on the night.

We appreciate your attention to detail and efforts in ensuring the reputation of this marvelous dinner remains at the highest standard.
We look forward to working with you again next year.

 Bruce Applebaum, General Manager, Australian Brandenburg Orchestra

Shannon and I just wanted to say a big thank you for once again organising a brilliant event that has been complimented by so many of the guests. Even though the weather played havoc this year, you did a marvelous job in supplying heaters at the last minute. The band and the cigars were the perfect touch, and the styling was divine!  

You could not have done a better job!
Jade Stapleton and Shannon Munro, Ironbridge

Thank you for your professional assistance on New Years Eve. We are delighted with the result and have received endless guest compliments on the evening. Cafe Sydney looked amazing and we have now had our eyes opened to the potential of colour in the room, which has such a softening effect.

We have taken the liberty of placing Form Over Function on our Cafe Sydney “preferred supplier recommendation list”.
Jan McKenzie, Director of Operations, Cafe Sydney

The opening of the Asia Pacific office was a smash hit.

Congratulations to you all!

Robin Clarke, Publications Manager IFAW HQ, Massachusetts, USA

Thank you for your hard efforts, which made our booth at Sydney on Sale such a success.

Not only did it deliver the “wow” factor we wanted, it also won an Award for Excellence, the second highest given by the event organisers.

You took our original brief and interpreted it into exactly what we wanted in the short time you had to set it up. We’re looking forward to winning the number one award next year.

Lisa Gale, Sales Manager, Grand Mercure Hotel Bowral Heritage Park

Again, Form Over Function have outdone themselves & set a huge benchmark for us to live up to at next year’s conference.

As always it was a pleasure to work with you & your team on a “A Night in Big Sky Country” at the Commonwealth Bank, Institutional Banking,Business Development Conference 2001.

I look forward to tossing around ideas with you for another spectacular evening in 2002.

 Sally Holmes, Commonwealth Bank

I would like to thank you for personally making our annual conference finale dinner a brilliant success.

Every one of the over one hundred people at the dinner were caught up in the atmosphere created and thoroughly enjoyed the night.

Thank you once again for your professionalism and creativity.

 Stephanie Grima, Business Projects Manager, Novartis Animal Health

Thank you for your hard work & the dedication you displayed in making our theme night so special.

Our 1920s evening during the Who Weekly Conference was one of the most memorable & well organized conference events we’ve ever had for the Who Weekly team.

The compliments I received from my end for the 1920s night organized by Form Over Function came straight from the top & were extremely flattering.

Diana Kay, Project & Event Manager, Time Inc South Pacific

Thank you for organising our most successful dinner.

As you know we had a very important guest list, that included the State Minister for Tourism & board members of Tourism NSW.

The dinner was excellent in every respect, from the quality of the food & wine, to its presentation, to the table set up. All the guests remarked on the overall quality.

I am very grateful to you for producing a most successful outcome. Could you please pass on my sentiments to those who assisted on the night, their thorough & professional approach to the task at hand contributed in no small way to the overall success of the night.

 Robert S. Doyle, General Manager, Wollongong Image Campaign

Thank you so much for all your help, hard work & creativity with the Novartis 2002 conference.

Form Over Function is a dream company to work with.

 Errin Dryden, Conference Manager, Complete Conference Services

Thank you for the fast, efficient and highly creative way in which you created our themed launch to our sales team.

The fact that you came up with a concept for our initiative put the whole evening together, and managed to persuade Max Walker to be our guest speaker, in less than two weeks, is quite remarkable. The evening was a great success and you’ll definitely be my first contact for all future events.
Cheryl Garn, PA to National Sales Manager, Animal Health Novartis

The transformation of the conference room to a Moroccan theme was remarkable & the attention to detail was outstanding.

It was reported to me that the Moroccan night was the best theme night we have had, & we have been having theme nights for 15 years.

Full credit to you & your crew for providing a very entertaining evening.
