With 20 years of experience in professional event management, we have the expertise to help small to medium enterprises plan and prepare for your upcoming business conference, promotional event, networking dinner or community fundraiser with meticulous attention to detail.

Whether you would like assistance with the planning to ensure every detail is carefully prepared in advance and collaborative support for your events team - or you would like us to manage the whole event, we can arrange everything so you can relax and enjoy the occasion with your guests.

We are able to cater for all budgets and will be happy to work with you to ensure you are completely satisfied with the success of your event.

We are also able to provide assistance with your event promotion and marketing campaigns.

Some events lend themselves to corporate sponsorship or exhibitions which help self-fund your event while raising the profile of your business or organisation. We can assist you with the planning, proposals and management of corporate sponsorship or exhibitions.

We are set up to operate virtually and can assist you to plan and prepare your event anywhere in Australia.

We are looking forward to creating an amazing experience which your guests will remember for years to come!

In any event, the sooner we get started, the easier and more successful your event will be.

case studies and testimonials

scientific research institutes:


annual scientific conferences

Sandra assisted in the organisation of several annual scientific meetings for a high profile cancer institute. These annual scientific meetings allowed around 200 surgeons, professors, clinicians and data managers to come together each year in a major city in Australia and New Zealand to discuss and learn about the latest research and findings, network with other medical professionals and strengthen collaborative relationships. Event management included pre-event site visits, organisation of the program, AV and event orders, management of the registrations, liaison with the international guest speakers, key delegates, event and research sponsors, preparation of the conference welcome parties and dinners, break out sessions and awards ceremonies, travel and accommodation arrangements, delegate satchels, catering and themeing. Event preparation commenced two years in advance.


public forums

Sandra also arranged regular public forums to raise awareness and encourage discussion in the community of environmental issues and scientific research while raising the profile and support of the institute. These events involved managing the program, budget, travel and accommodation of guest speakers, registrations, venue, catering, safety and AV arrangements, exhibitions, notes, presentations and volunteer and student support.

Rhema FM engaged Maximum Efficiency to assist them in organising their Business Builders Networking event and sponsorship which involved planning and managing the venue, catering, program, AV, speaker and sponsor liaison, guest package preparation, volunteer organisation, signage and safety, tours of their new facilities and registrations.

This allowed Rhema to extend its resources to focus on sponsorship while turning the event around in a limited time frame.

"I wanted to take this moment to share with you the great privilege I had to work with Sandra Briggs. I was the Account Manager for Newcastle Rhema FM 99.7 and working with Sandra was such an incredible opportunity.

We were able to partner on many events and occasions, creating a beneficial relationship for us both. We looked at ways to engage local communities and design something exciting and creative. These were called Family Fun Days, where the radio station was able to Live Broadcast from the event. It gave the station great local content that connected every listener and also raised the profile significantly of the school.

We also partnered on many Marketing Campaigns, which involved the use of Radio, Print and Digital components. These were all aligned to give the product maximum traction and influence with its audience.

It was such a great pleasure to work with Sandra. She understood her market really well, had a clear vision for the campaigns and gave us creative permission to partner alongside her.

I highly recommend a partnership with Sandra Briggs. I know that I can trust her completely and know that it'll be an enjoyable experience.

Lord Mayors Prayer Breakfast.JPG

LORD MAYOR'S PRAYER BREAKFAST

In 2016, Maximum Efficiency was asked to assist in the event organisation of the Lord Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast. The event management included venue and catering arrangements, program and speaker preparation, major sponsor support, AV and registration management, staff and volunteer management.

In particular, the key focus was to streamline the registration process so 200 guests could arrive and be seated quickly so the early breakfast program could start and finish on time for guests needing to leave for work.

CITYFEST - LUIS PALAU - LASER TAG GAME

"We all know when it comes to pulling off an event you need the right people.

In 2012 we had the privilege and challenge of hosting a large scale two day event, CityFest in conjunction with Luis Palau on the Newcastle Foreshore. This event included local and international artists, 1,500+ volunteers and attracted 30,000+ people.Through this event we had a high level of engagement with Sandra as the direct representative of Hunter Christian School. This included the shaping of a financial sponsorship with the event as well as providing a larger outdoor laser tag game that made up part of the kids free entertainment.

This process was thorough, professional and enjoyable. Sandra’s ability to understand the heart and intent of our event was exceptional. This led to a tailor made sponsorship agreement that created a win-win situation for us and the organisation she was representing. It was both entrepreneurial and refreshing.

The laser tag game was delivered in a professional and well organised way with her team of volunteers that delivered for us a great experience for the hundreds of kids that used it.

The level of detail and excellence in delivery on this was extremely impressive! It is through our experience that I would wholeheartedly recommend Sandra to you as someone who is able to deliver professionally and in the process add credibility to your organisation.

I’m confident Sandra will be the right person for you to execute your ideas into a brilliant reality."

Many Blessings
