7The way Mitch de Faria turned around the Jubilee 2000 Human Chain was amazing. With a completely unrealistic timescale, Mitch’s enthusiasm, organisational skills and commitment pulled off a success that far exceeded my expectations and that of my colleagues, and put the issue of world debt relief firmly on the political agenda.”

“You’ve changed the world this week.”

“I’ve known Mitch de Faria since The Event Makers ran the Birmingham end of The Great British Treasure Hunt with BBC Radio WM. Whatever the project, Mitch is enthusiastic and creative from first thought to post mortem. I’d recommend Mitch to anyone where honesty, frankness, common sense, compassion, care, hard work and ability to cope with difficulties are concerned.”
Ed Doolan MBE, presenter & broadcaster, BBC

“Having Mitch there at the end of the phone in the final weeks before D-Day was an incredible relief. Always upbeat, encouraging and absolutely full of ideas, wisdom, contacts and common sense, she was worth every penny and more. Better than indemnity insurance!”
Dr Jenny Taylor, Executive Director, Lapido Media

“I’ve worked with The Event Makers a number of times in the past few years, in connection with the charity Gingerbread and with the Bus Industry Awards, at outside venues and also at premier London hotels. Event management by The Event Makers is always highly professional with thorough attention to detail and I recommend Mitch and The Event Makers to anyone hosting an occasion of any type.”
Bob Holness, broadcaster & TV personality

“Thank you sincerely for the superb way in which you organised the Life Share campaign. It has been a tremendous success as has generated excellent publicity. It was magnificent effort and I do congratulate you. This campaign will undoubtedly save many lives in the future and contribute to a great increase in the quality of life for many patients.”
Professor Peter J Morris, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford

“Despite years of controlling the PR activity of a medium sized company, I still find The Event Makers’ PR advice highly effective. I overlooked the opportunity to re-release our story on the eve of an awards ceremony, so shamelessly copied Mitch’s reminder which drew press coverage for a second time. Similarly guiding companies nation-wide, Mitch has generated media attention for the entire industry.”
Melvyn Hopwood, Director of Communications, Trent Barton

“I’ve worked with The Event Makers on a number of occasions, all of them high level and potentially fraught. As the person chosen to front these events, I have found Mitch de Faria an invaluable support. Mitch commands a high level of respect from those in the team and others who are asked to perform and rely on her for guidance. I have fronted a great many presentations and knowing that Mitch is in charge has provided the greatest comfort.”
Andrew Harvey, TV news presenter
