What Our Clients Say

I have used ‘Function Fixers’ now on many occasions and they are my go-to for literally any event I need help with organising. Heather is an absolute superstar who is always there to help and goes above and beyond to find me the perfect venue and make sure it is a smooth transition from start to finish.

I would highly recommend them to anyone and am so thankful to have found the company…absolute life and time savers, and certainly ‘fixers’!!

When it came to helping me find a venue that met my requirements, Chen was among the best that I have used.

Function Fixers is my go to team for support with venue finding. All those of us that work in event organisation know how agile and quick footed you have to be to organise them effectively, as people, agenda, budgets, dates change so easily. This did not phase Theresa one bit...we sent email after email back and forth as my venue brief changed regularly, as did finding the right date. Theresa dealt with it with a level of patience I wish I had! And email conversations were always full of detail and fun. Theresa responded so quickly to my emails, always remaining positive that a venue would fit our needs and she was right. The handover to the venue was done promptly and we are in full swing of event organisation. Thank you Theresa, Heather and FF...we will definitely be back with future venue needs!
