“Ruth played a critical role in organizing Global Digital Mobilisation Skills Share (2012) — an incredibly successful event held in Catalonia thanks largely to Ruth’s extraordinary planning and logistics work before, during, and after the event. Managing multiple priorities, details, and personalities across time zones is no easy feat, but Ruth maintained both a professional approach as well as a sense of humor throughout, handling each new challenge with good judgement, a positive attitude, and a smile.”

And Ruth managed every last detail in terms of plane and train pick-up and local transport, etc, wonderfully. We had just the sort of experience we were hoping for, and Ruth was key in making that happen smoothly.”

Mouna Ben Garga

“I worked with Ruth and Venue4Ideas in 2016 and they helped us organizing an international event of more than 100 persons from around the world.  Ruth and the team were really professional, resourceful and AMAZING. In fact, it was my first stress free event because of the team logistics and organizational skills. Ruth was quick and handled all the issues including visas issuing. She also showed a high level of flexibility and ability to work virtually with my team that are located in different timezones ( U.S. and South Africa). I highly recommend working with Ruth and we will use her service again.”

Charlotte Van Der Tak

“Working with Ruth for an event with more than 100 people was an absolute joy. Not only did she take responsibility for so many parts of the organisation, she was always thinking ten steps ahead in solving acute issues and ensuring that overall smooth flow of the event. I would therefore absolutely recommend to contract venue4ideas!”

Anna Pérez Català

Campaings Coordinator at Climate Tracker

Venue: CampaingCon Session (2016) – 150 pax – 6 days meeting

“I participated in a CampaignCon session in 2016, where more than 150 campaigners from all over the world gathered to share experiences, tools and ideas. The logistics were so smooth: the venue was great (including a terrace, forests and nice weather), and very suitable for the size of the group. The food was awesome and thoughtful of the different diets and specificities, and the rooms were very nice! Basically, we did not have to worry about logistics, only focus on the sharing experience – and that says it all.”

Nick Thorp

NGO Volunteer Coordinator Expert

Venue: Global Mobilisation Skills Share  (2012) – 145 pax – 5 days meeting

“The experience was truly inspiring and is one of the reasons I am still a volunteer today. Ruth provided an environment that allowed the delegates to concentrate 100% on a wide variety of activities, both indoor and outdoor at a fantastic location, without having to worry about the logistics of meals, rooms, chairs, equipment and internet access. This resulted in an extremely productive conference. Ruth’s organisation skills are second to none and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with her again.”
