Our Clients Say...
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Leila at Compass Conference.
She has been instrumental in driving our key special events. Leila is extremely
professional and a great team player. Her contribution was crucial in helping us
execute our event during a storm that stopped Toronto. Leila and her team always
exhibited grace and calmness and ensured that no matter what was going on, our clients
were well looked after. Her leadership during a trying time with no electricity
and flooding helped us proceed with our event and helped our event become a big
Leila is dedicated to her clients that she represents, and is extremely focused
and detail-oriented. It has been a real pleasure working with her! I truly hope
we will keep working together in the future and I highly recommend Compass Conferences.
Daphne King, National Accounts, IA Clarington Investments.
Through your efforts, are extremely pleased with the travel experience
of our group had during our recent adventure/meetings in the Dominican Republic.
On behalf of YPO/WPO Florida, we want to thank you and your firm. YPO/WPO expectations
are always high and you managed to exceed ours. In addition, my firm also utilizes
many worldwide conferences and we want our participants to focus on the issues,
not on many of the displeasures of travel. In summary, you played a key role in
allowing us to focus on our experience which was outstanding. Travel to a foreign
destination is not always easy; however, you and your associates worked tirelessly
in the background to bring this trip in on budget yet we never sacrificed comfort.
Please do not hesitate to use me as a reference. I would welcome the opportunity
to speak with anyone regarding the quality and capability of your firm, Compass
Barry M. Alpert, Raymond James & Associates
You & your team are amazing. I don’t even know where to begin,
but we have received rave reviews and you all deserve a lot of credit.
Your attention to details did not go unnoticed by anyone.
Many are saying that it is the BEST one yet!! And I know you ALL
worked very hard to make it that way.
I am so thrilled that we found YOU; you make our jobs so much easier
than in the past. I look forward to working with you on the next one (and many futures
ones). . . Take Care and thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Karen Rush, Manager Corporate Services, CARSTAR Automotive
Once again I would like to thank you and your team at Compass for
all your efforts in making this year’s annual Business Conference a tremendous success!
With all of the recent acquisitions and mergers that occurred within
our company this past year, it was imperative that this year’s event be conducted
not only with the very high level of professionalism that we have become accustomed
to when dealing with Compass, but also embrace a specific ambiance of unity as this
would be the first time some delegates would be attending. With over 550+ attendees
and different corporate cultures encompassed within, this year’s conference was
certainly was our largest and most complicated in many ways to build. Based upon
comments received in our post-event survey, I am glad to inform you that not only
was the event a home run, Compass knocked it right out of the park!
We have had tremendous feedback by our delegates and sponsors about
the success of the FundEX Conference year after year and we know that is a direct
reflection of Compass’s abilities to satisfy our event planning needs as well as
the specific needs of our delegates. It is truly a pleasure to work with a company
that can facilitate the unique aspects and elements of our event as it evolves and
grows from year to year. As the assigned corporate organizer, I personally take
great comfort in knowing that no challenge seems too large or obscure for Compass
to handle and no detail seems too small or overlooked. The value that you and your
team provide by supplying the guidance and personal attention required to consistently
take our event to another level certainly surpasses our expectations and always
creates an elevated experience for our delegates. It is with this type of approach
that our event has become known as one of the best in our industry and places Compass
head and shoulders above its competitors.
Year after year, conference after conference, Compass’ friendly
personal approach and creative solutions remain fresh and beyond compare. From our
viewpoint, you and your team are the preeminent leaders at what you do and I along
with the others on our Sr. Management team have absolute confidence in the abilities
of the Compass team.
Thank you once again for all of your efforts and guidance in making
these past 8 years events successful and contributing to the overall success of
Robert Corbett, Vice President Sales, FundEX Investments Inc.
I have been running events across Canada and the US in the financial
services industry since 2003. Having worked with numerous event planning companies,
I can honestly say that Leila and the team at Compass are the real deal!
They presented us with some great venue options and custom tailored
the billing process across the various channels (we had 3 at the event) to match
our stringent accounting needs...a very helpful process!
More importantly, they delivered first class service before, during
and after the event which was further evidenced in our attendees' great feedback!
When working with other planning companies, I spent the bulk of
the event ensuring everything was running smoothly. After pre-event planning with
Compass, their team had every detail mapped and accounted for the duration of the
event...it was fantastic!
I was confidentially able to spend quality time with my attendees...a
very nice and welcome change! Thank you Compass!
