What Our Clients Think Of Us

Function Fixers helped source venues for our MRCP (UK) examinations. Carrie and the team are professional, committed and are very well organised.

Abdulkadir Ali – Royal College of Physicians
Time is precious as an EA and I certainly don’t have much of it spare for looking for venues! Heather has been a huge asset to us and in particular helping us secure large venues for our Christmas Party. She has also aided with small meeting rooms at last minute and has negotiated on our behalf if things haven’t quite been as we needed.

Executive Assistant to Global CIO, Sage Publishing

Carrie, Heather and the Function Fixers team take all of the stress and effort out of finding a unique, bespoke venue and package tailored to my specific needs. For the events I run I’m usually looking for a venue with a bit of a difference to wow our clientele, this is where Function fixers come in. They send me various options and quotes based on my specific needs and brief and I simply chose the one for me. It’s as easy as that and because of their expertise in driving the best rates, not only am I saving time and effort but also money.

Shaun booked Skyloft
Carrie and the Function Fixers Team have become our go to events people. They go over and above to find the perfect venue, as well as finalising menu’s costs, invoicing, the whole package. The venues are perfect and Heather is able to help with negotiations even when we are being super fussy, or on a very strict budget. They save us huge amounts of time and I would not hesitate to use Function Fixers again, and would highly recommend them.
