“Throughout the project, Lucy provided calm and capable support to the event team. Professional and reassuring, she always knew what was required and had everything in hand.

“When COVID restrictions forced our hybrid event fully online at short notice, Lucy and Peter were flexible and creative. They developed an online conference in GatherTown and Zoom, delivered training to the events team and fully managed the participation of delegates and contributors.

“The event ran smoothly and was well received by all. I am happy to recommend the team. But if you have occasion to take part in an infohackit quiz – be warned, they are fiendish!”
