ANNUAL CONGRESS
AIJA, International Association of Young Lawyers
Despite being a complex event requiring tight timing and seamless transitions, all went flawlessly thanks to Paradigm’s careful planning and expert execution. (In fact, several delegates told me that the Toronto Congress was the best organized that they had ever attended.) Despite a tight budget, the whole event had a luxurious air thanks to Paradigm’s creativity. Despite a critical and demanding delegate group, the event was exceedingly well-received. None of this would have been possible but for Michelle and her team who consistently impressed us with their focus on details, their sense of the larger picture, their deep experience, their unstinting dedication to ensure that we had the best possible event and their highest degree of professionalism.
They did us — and Toronto, as Congress host city — proud.

You and your team have ensured that this event was a tremendous success. Your attention to detail and engaging personality make it an absolute pleasure to work with you! You surpassed all of my expectations from the proposal stage, with several revisions, to the development of the theme “Dancing on Solid Gold” and the very detailed script writing for the entire event.
You alleviated much of the workload from me so that I could concentrate on focusing on the clients’ needs. You are not simply a supplier but have become an invaluable partner. I look forward to working with you on many more successful events!

I want to thank you once again for arranging a
very successful sales conference. The ideas and engagement your staff had with our folks was key to their participation.
Our managers and sales representatives particularly enjoyed the creation of their own videos. This helped us position the change management outcome we needed to proceed with the remainder of our training.

ELIGIBLE MAGAZINE
My company has used the services of Paradigm Events on a number of occasions and in particular for a very large and exclusive Bachelor & Bachelorette auction event. Ms. Planche and her team had an exceptionally professional and helpful approach every step of the way. Objectives for successful outcome to our event were identified as were all action items. Feedback was provided regularly as well as follow-ups confirming completion of every stage of preparation.
Ms. Planche offered suggestions for a more successful event throughout the process. It was clear to us that her years of experience in the event planning business, was a clear asset for the success of our event.

The event was executed beautifully by Paradigm, with utmost professionalism. I am still amazed at the way that you and your team were able to transform a relatively plain art gallery space into a full blown Miami experience for my clients. No detail was missed. Your elegant style, creative vision and ever present calm made all the difference for my event.

Over the past 2 years Publicis has used Paradigm Events on several occasions. Our company and clients have all gained a tremendous amount of respect and trust for Michelle and her team. Being an advertising agency our ability to provide creative solutions to our clients on-schedule and on-budget extends to the events that we create and Paradigm makes it possible for us to deliver time after time.
Their ability to over-deliver on every request has made Paradigm Events a valuable partner to us and we look forward to working with them in the future.

I have an idea
I just finished reading the front cover article the Globe & Mail wrote of our event “Portfolio Night in Canada” and I wanted to let you know that without Paradigm’s involvement in our events none of this would have been possible.
For the past three years, all of our events have been flawless, over the top, and most important of all, worry free (for us). I particularly appreciate the flexibility Paradigm has shown in helping us carry out such a variety of small and large events with different budgets and timelines. We have been impressed each and every time because you constantly exceed and over deliver, and you do it with a smile.

This three day sales meeting, for roughly 40 employees was an extremely important experience to properly kick-off our fiscal year. I found Paradigm Events to be extremely professional, creative and detail oriented.

Thank You to you and your team for your continued dedication and fresh ideas in making the Toronto Light The Night Walk such an amazing event. As the number of participants grow each year you have taken on the challenge and creatively worked with us to improve the flow at registration, walk start, VIP and other areas to enhance the experience for everyone within our limited budget. Your plan for re-organizing the flow of registration was so successful that it was implemented as a standard practice at our other walks across Ontario.
Your attention to detail and engaging personality make it an absolute pleasure to work with you.

We never could have come up with such an original celebration without your ingenuity. This will leave a lasting memory for all of us for an anniversary that few companies ever achieve.

I would highly recommend Paradigm Events to anyone who wants to put on an unforgettable event. Michelle Planche and her team were excellent to deal with. They were creative, professional, hard working, and far exceeded our expectations. They put customer satisfaction as a top priority. Prior to the event they were very responsive to enquiries, very thorough, and always followed up. Afterwards; they contacted us immediately to ensure we were satisfied, and to get feedback.
