I had seasoned Chief Executives who would receive many hundreds of invitations each year tell me they attended my IBM function because they knew it was a "Valerie event".

You must be SO very proud of your achievements … all the global and regional events you have done over those years. It was my pleasure to know you, to work with you … and to share some of your fabulous events, including overseas and in Australia – all absolutely memorable.

Louise Davis - Executive, Corporate Citizenship and Corporate Affairs, IBM Asia Pacific/GCG

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your efforts on Saturday night at the Australian Chamber Orchestra and Dinner event – the standard was at your usual level, however this time there was extra pressure due to the need to set up the tables in one of Sydney’s most prestigious ad hoc restaurants, all within 35 minutes! Thank you again for all your support.

Philip Bullock - CEO, IBM Australia & New Zealand
