Haslam Scholars Program - 21 July 2015 

I had been looking for a space to hold a number of lectures for our Summer Scholars Program in Edinburgh.  I realized that the public library might have space available for rental and decided to pursue this option.  I contacted the library and received an email from Jenny Robertson a short time later.  Jenny was extremely helpful and flexible with finding a meeting location for our event.

Working on Wheels Staff Day - Tuesday 1 April 2014

The venue is wonderful - it was an opportunity to hold an event in a prestigious setting and it did not disappoint. Everyone was very helpful from the staff on reception, to Gail who had helped to organise the day, through to the service staff at lunchtime. It was a very nice atmosphere to come into.

Thank you for all your help in making our staff day memorable and fun for everyone.

Scottish Ambulance Service Public Meeting - Wednesday 12 February 2014

I would like to thank Gail Garvey and the rest of the staff at Edinburgh City Chambers for their support and assistance during our public meeting. We had a couple of issues on the day with additional members of the public arriving who we were not expecting, wrong times on the agenda and an overrun of some of the presentations. Gail and the rest of the team were extremely accommodating, helpful and patient as our plans changed throughout the morning. this made the meeting run smoothly and helped amke our public meeting a success.

Thanks again
