Client Opinion

“Leigh Gillen Events helped us to launch the European headquarters of
Horizon8 in Ireland. This involved creative input, event advice & consultation, RSVP
management, supplier management, budget management as well as on-site delivery of our
launch event. As a global organisation, Horizon8 has directors and stakeholders in both the
US and Europe, so as part of this process, stakeholder management and comms between
the board and the IDA Ireland were a vital part of the event management process. Leigh
assisted us in weaving these elements together and slotted in as part of our team, helping to
bring the event to life on the day. We’d highly recommend Leigh Gillen Events for your next
important event. “
