What our clients say about PEG

Sam Groom and Perfect Events Group have world-class experience and a great reputation for all aspects of event management. This ensures the event is safe, well planned, well executed, brilliantly publicised and most importantly highly successful. Without Sam at the helm of the complex multi agency team for the 2014 Tall Ships in Falmouth, it would have not been the overwhelming success it was.

Malcolm Bell

CEO, Visit Cornwall

Choosing to work with Perfect Event Group, who supported us in the planning and implementation of event safety requirements for our event, proved to be a great decision.  Mike quickly understood and responded to our needs as event organisers. During the festival Mike worked seamlessly with our key partners, helping us safely deliver yet another fantastic community event.

Sara Eckersley

Festival Director Golowan

This year’s annual Falmouth Oyster festival has been acknowledged as one of the best yet in its 19 year history. I believe, that in respect of PR, Media Coverage and Marketing, our first association with Perfect Events Group, has in no small way contributed to this success. It has been a very well constructed campaign, which with Sam Groom’s contacts has achieved all we could possibly want in terms of exposure.

Mike Rangecroft

Falmouth Oyster Festival Director

We have worked with Sam on two occasions where she has been the Project Manager [Director] responsible for delivery all aspects of in port elements of the Tall Ships Events. Her professionalism, planning, communication and attention to detail are second to none. She certainly made our job a lot easier and delivered a worlds class event on both occasions.

Gwyn Brown

CEO Sail Training International – Organisers of the Tall Ships Races and Regattas

Samantha was the driving force behind the co-ordination and delivery of two complex Tall Ships regattas that we have staged in Falmouth in 2008 and 2014.  Her enthusiasm, skill and attention to detail combined with her sense of humour facilitated great co-operation between a wide range of professional and voluntary organisations and effectively co-ordinated the very wide scope of activities required by these Events.  I have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone staging public events.

Captain Mark Sansom

Chief Executive & Harbour Master, Falmouth Harbour Commissioners

Frankly speaking I was surprised. Seb (Coe) showed us a little movie after Land’s End and I saw masses of people. I know Cornwall and it is not a highly populated area of the UK. It was unbelievable. It’s a massive success and it’s everything that I had hoped for.

Jacques Rogge

International Olympic Committee President

I have known and worked with Sam Groom since 2006 principally in organising two major Tall Ship Regattas in Falmouth.  These major events were very successful due to Sam’s expertise in event management planning. Her people skills produced a harmonious and strong team of various agencies working together successfully and her very professional and personal character enthuse people thus producing great events.

John Hick M.B.E

Chairman of 2008 & 2014 Tall Ship Regattas

I am delighted to recommend Samantha Groom and the associates working with Perfect Events Group, based on the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site’s experience of the excellent service they delivered for Golden Tree Productions Ltd during the Man Engine tour in July and August 2016.

Despite a very short timescale for event management planning they pulled together robust arrangements to ensure that the public events ran smoothly and safely. Beyond that, when the remarkable media response led to much larger than anticipated crowds, the PEG team then worked very effectively with a number of Cornwall Council teams to revise event plans to take account of the larger audiences and minimise potential disruption as the tour moved forward.

The Man Engine tour would not have been the unparalleled success it became without PEG’s contribution.

Deborah Boden

Cornish Mining WHS Coordinator, Cornish Mining World Heritage Site

The support of Sam and the team at Perfect Events Group was outstanding. PEG’s combination of creative flair and highly detailed organisational planning combined to create a very enjoyable day that ran flawlessly and exactly to time. Not only was Sam great fun to work with, but her effortless and highly professional integration with suppliers, her own network, and our own staff removed a significant workload from us at a very busy time. PEG come with the highest recommendation from KML.

Diccon Rogers

Managing Director, Keynvor MorLift Ltd

Sam Groom is, quite simply, the consummate event management specialist.  It has been a real honour, and a pleasure, to witness Sam in action across some of the highest profile events that this county has ever seen.  Sam’s absolute meticulous attention to detail, and her super sharp and deep planning, mean that every event eventuality is considered and covered.  The emergency services, suppliers, politicians and all colleagues have such an obvious respect for Sam, and for how she does it, and I totally join them in that admiration.

Rhona Gardiner

Director, Excess Energy

I have worked with Sam over a number of years on several events of various sizes and scales. Sam is extremely knowledgeable on the planning and what is required to ensure a safe and enjoyable event is had by all.  This experience and background is essential to large-scale events as there is so much that must be considered. If you want to have confidence in delivery of your event and a successful outcome then working with Sam and her team is a very good option.

Richard Gates

Falmouth Town Manager

From our perspective, in terms of coordinating reporting for the event Cornwall were a very helpful and engaged partner, understood what we were looking for by way of products quickly and what we were aiming to achieve and that you were keen to play your part in supporting learning across later authorities on the route. Whilst we have evolved and tweaked our processes this first local engagement is very much a template to look back on and work through with other authorities.
