Client Testimonials


IMSANZ New Zealand (2018)
We have worked with Lynda and the Workz4U team for over 10 years, initially for our NZ conferences and now for all our annual events across Australasia. It is our pleasure to work with such professional and enthusiastic people. Lynda is involved from the initial planning stage right through to close of accounts, dealing with everything from delegate inquiries to sensitive financial information. She has proven herself to be extremely trustworthy and transparent, to the point where we have absolute trust in her to manage the financial accounts for our conferences. She provides invaluable service through her diligence and commitment, her outstanding attention to detail and above all, her friendly approach. She is always accommodating – no request is too difficult – and we receive numerous compliments from delegates on her professional and welcoming manner. We look forward to continuing this collaboration into the future.

ANZICS New Zealand Regional ASM (2018)
After having worked with Donna and the Workz4U team for the highly successful delivery of the ANZICS Annual Scientific Meeting in 2015, we knew that we would be in extremely competent and accomplished hands for our NZ Regional ANZICS ASM. Right from the beginning, Donna has navigated our committee seamlessly and skilfully through the entire conference management process. Donna’s professional and friendly style has given us peace of mind and we are confident that our meeting will be just as successful. I would definitely recommend Workz4U if you are looking for a PCO.

NZACRes NZ Clinical Trials Conferences (2016 and 2017)
It is my pleasure to recommend Donna Clapham from Workz4u as conference/event planner. Donna has a lot of expertise and experience in the event planning and hospitality industry, having been the event planner for NZ Acres (NZ Clinical Trials) conference from 2005 to 2017.
I have been convenor for the NZ Clinical Trials conference for 2016 and 2017 and I would not hesitate to recommend Donna to future conferences committees. Donna is conscientious and diligent in completing timelines and ensuring the conferences have run smoothly. As well as being very personable Donna is quick with responses and communications, and nothing is too much trouble for her.
Donna has played a big role in ensuring a smooth transition with conferences over the years and her commitment and attention to detail have been outstanding.
I would highly recommend without reservation, Donna and her team as conference organisers, and it is with pleasure our committee has engaged her services again this year. Please feel free to contact me if you require any further information.
Best Regards

Eileen Bisley,

New Zealand Society of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery Annual Scientific Meeting (2016)
On behalf of the Organising Committee, I can only give you my greatest thanks for your superb organisational skills. I cannot think of anything that you could have done better Donna. Well done!
Mr Chris Thomson
Convenor, NZSOHNS Annual Scientific Meeting 2016

New Zealand Pain Society (2016)
Workz4U have organised our Annual Scientific Meetings for several years. I worked closely with Donna for the 2015 meeting in Auckland and we are currently planning the 2019 meeting in Christchurch.
Donna has been an absolute pleasure to work with. She is very organised, flexible and she understands the needs of the New Zealand Pain Society well. We have a different Conference convenor each year and the level of knowledge in the organising committee is variable. Workz4U has provided a stable platform between these changes. The meetings occur in different cities and Donna has shown a diversity of connections to ensure that this has never been an issue.
I recommend Workz4U with no reservations and am very appreciative of the work that Donna has done to make each of our meetings an enjoyable experience that has felt easy to organise. We have also had feedback from international speakers that they have found Workz4U exceptional and that they feel our conferences have been extremely well organised and a pleasure to attend.

I would like to commend Donna and the Workz4U team for the successful delivery of our Annual Scientific Meeting of 1000+ delegates held in Auckland in 2015. The event was well organised and under control throughout the process. Donna’s friendly nature and working style were a highlight and her ability to handle high pressure situations was a testament to her skills.

The conference was wonderful providing delegates with an ideal opportunity to network and learn in a collegial environment. Heartiest congratulations on organising the event – things ran so smoothly and we all know that only happens when a great deal of work goes into planning. You and your team created such a warm and friendly atmosphere while not losing the professionalism. As a speaker I felt well informed and ‘cared’ for every step of the way. Absolutely outstanding! Thanks so much.

I would like to say a big thank you for giving me the privilege to speak on your national meeting. I was most impressed by the turn out and the very well organised sessions; as well as the social activities. I and my wife Dawn were very touched by your warm friendship and outstanding hospitality.
