Georgie is one of the most professional and capable events managers I’ve ever worked with.

Make-A-Wish® Australia

Make-A-Wish® Australia has been delighted with the effective, creative and professional public relations work Georgie Stayches of Fetching Events and Communications has performed for us.

Georgie is a capable and charming PR professional always ready to create a new media stunt, always able to roll up her sleeves and do the ground work and always ready to manage whatever is pitched to her.  She has a natural ability to make good things happen and gets things done with a minimum of fuss and with a smile.

From organising high profile celebrities to participate in media shoots to speaking to volunteers at a charity event, Georgie is the consummate professional.  No job is too small for her to see the merit in and she manages to come up with great ideas each week which is a blessing for us!

I would thoroughly recommend Georgie and her company and intend to use her services as often as I am able!

Make-A-Wish® Australia

From the outset Georgie easily and readily built a rapport with our base of over 1,100 volunteers, staff and other key stakeholders. During her time with us Georgie was successful in securing a $70,000 small equipment grant for our volunteers and other smaller community grants. She also assisted our volunteer branches in their fundraising efforts leading them in raising $92k more than the previous year despite a Global Financial Crisis. Georgie also created many tools and resources for our volunteers. Georgie also instrumental in establishing 3 new volunteer branches across the country, Port Lincoln (SA), Eastern Sydney (NSW) and Mornington Peninsula (VIC).

Georgie was involved in organisation of our volunteer conferences and providing training. Her planning skills are exceptional.

Her work ethic and attention to detail is second to none. She is also a calming and positive influence to have around. Since commencing her own business, Georgie has been employed back on a contract basis with Make-A-Wish® Australia which is testament to the high regard in which she is held.

Event Management Worldwide

You can be guaranteed a first class service when dealing with Georgie, and Fetching Events & Communications is a great success because of her experience and attention to detail.

Georgie has worked with me on several major international sporting and political events and I could not recommend her highly enough.  Her work ethic is outstanding and she is able to build an excellent rapport with people at all levels. Her patience is exceptional when dealing with problematic situations and managing a large workforce of volunteers was one of her greatest achievements at the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Squash Vic

Fetching Events designed, implemented and managed our promotional strategy allowing us to concentrate on coordinating our coaches, venues and participants.

Georgie worked with Squash Vic on our women’s squash project and we were delighted with her thorough preparation, attention to detail and ability to relate to all stakeholders. Georgie kept us informed on progress at all stages and provided a comprehensive post campaign report. I have no hesitation in recommending Georgie and Fetching Events and look forward to working together on a new project shortly.

Independence Australia

The best decision I made this year was to engage and entrust our annual 'Racing for the Roses' event to Georgie.

From our initial meeting through to the actual delivery on the night, Georgie's professionalism, expertise and unflappable nature, ensured that every detail of the event went to plan, and that we were singing its praises at the end of the night. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Georgie, and look forward to working with her in the future.

When you are on stage in front of 150 people, trust in the PCO is everything. Georgie is someone I trust and continue to recommend.

I worked with Georgie at a National Sales conference for Siemens in Melbourne in November 2010. My role was MC and content designer, Georgie was the conference organiser. She did a fantastic job in every regard. I have worked with many PCO's in my career and would heartily recommend Georgie for her attention to detail, strategic planning, ability to build great relationships and excellent follow through.
