Working with Rhona as part of the Avionics team was a fantastic experience, she blended into our team and gave the event an additional edge with the development of the conference and workshop programme over a two year period

I have known Rhona since the mid-nineties when she was working at P&O events, developing their portfolio of events in China. I watched the way she works and integrates seamlessly into local cultures, managing venues, local staff and contractors and, very importantly for me, how she looks after our BESA members participating in the events on which she works. These experiences gave the confidence to choose Rhona to work with on launch events in Dubai and in Kuala Lumpur over the past decade which successfully continue today.
I know that if Rhona is involved everything and everyone will be well looked after; and that I can be confident that arrangements have been made on all of the technical, personal and VIP aspects of any event. Very important among Rhona’s attributes are her sense of humour and resourcefulness on–site, with her ability to communicate and inspire confidence whether with government ministers and international speakers or by encouraging locally engaged staff to achieve superb results. Rhona has integrated herself with the international and national teams at BESA and is seen as an extension of our internal resources and she can also be found on the information stand during BETT each year to support our BESA team.
Rhona is a truly professional event and conference organiser, always maintaining the highest standards and always a pleasure to work alongside.

I have had the pleasure of working alongside Rhona and the Alarming Events team for a number of years, both as a colleague and supplier.
Rhona’s understanding of both the technical and practical elements of putting on an event provides an unparalleled level of detail which ensures that all technicians and suppliers are fully briefed as to what is required, enabling a smooth running event.
Rhona’s patience, sense of humour and professionalism make last minute changes to schedules easier to implement with crew, client and presenters.

On behalf of EC Harris, I have worked with Alarming Events on IPSEF Conference developments and delivery.
I have found the expertise and knowledge of the Alarming Events team to be strong in both content and context and we continue to be heavily involved with them in current and future activities in the sector.

I have worked with Rhona and her team for over four year at events in Bangkok, Dubai and London and soon, Kuala Lumpur. As a presenter and moderator at these events, I have found Rhona and her team to be high energy. Their energy is positive, purposeful and sustained. From the moment the invitation arrives to arrival at the event and throughout the event’s proceedings, one is supported by effective communication, high levels of support and care and generous lashings of good-natured humour. Given these qualities, what is striking at the events themselves, is the quietly supportive and unobtrusive way Rhona and her team facilitate the organisation of the event, all the while infusing it with their energy and enthusiasm. They allow the event to develop its own dynamic without taking a high profile themselves thereby ensuring that the focus remains on the event’s theme and its participants.
