Events by KMB Receive Glowing Testimonial

Posted: 7th December 2017

It is quite daunting when you set up on your own and only have your service to sell, not a product. So after the first EVENTS BY KMB event took place, it was lovely to receive this from Sheila Ferguson…

“My name is Sheila Ferguson and I used to be the lead singer of ‘The Three Degrees’. I met Kate Bell several years ago when she was the Sales and Marketing Director for a very dear friend of mine, the late Brian Crawford of Tramp Private Members Club, London and The Dome, Edinburgh.

Quite recently I decided to use Kate’s formidable services of organisation to arrange a big party for me. While I reside in Mallorca, Kate in Scotland and the big party (my 70th birthday bash at Tramp nightclub) was in London, it never stopped Kate from making it the party of the year.

Kate’s expertise was (and is) unparalleled and without question ‘top class’. Her attention to detail is insatiable as well as unmatched to any I have seen throughout my illustrious career. Kate saw my project from the onset (early May, 2017) to weeks after (October 8th and beyond). She was so keen on every single detail, and always ensured that no stone was left unturned. She also came up with some very original and amazing ideas. These stunned my guests and made me feel so proud.

I can absolutely recommend the services of Kate Bell for any organisational event. She will ensure that all of the guests, the staff, the venue, the caterers, menu, champagnes, wines, etc are of the highest standard. And she pulls it all off quite effortlessly, with dignity, class and verve. I was extremely impressed with her from start to finish. And even the attention she paid to the after affects were all taken on board and tidied up nicely.

Every time I said “Kate, have you done this, or that”, her response would always be “It’s already taken care of, or, it’s done”.

My guests are still raving about Kate’s expertise and friendly demeanour. I would not hesitate using Kate again, and I fully intend to have her do every event (as well as private business ventures) I give in future.

Yours most sincerely,

Sheila D Ferguson
