Max is a highly proficient and professional event organiser. She is well organised, flexible and creative, and her attention to detail is second to none. Max has worked with my team since 2009 which included the production of a series of 10 Roadshows across the UK. I have every confidence that Max will produce and manage high quality and creative events for you and would wholly recommend Max and her team.
I would just like to thank all at Purple Rock for helping with the preparation and coordination of our large event – Every Student Counts. I highly valued your responsiveness before and after the event and your professional, discreet and calm management of the day.

Max and team were on hand at all times to ensure that our International Symposium on Postgraduate Medical Training proceeded without any issues. She has a keen eye for detail and ensured that nothing was out of place, which was very important for us. The team are clear and straightforward to deal with and have an aptitude for being adaptable. Max has a good deal of experience in organising and managing high-profile events, as reflected in the success of our own.

Director of the Institute of Applied Health Research
Our work with Max Jones and her team at Purple Rock events delivered a highly successful international conference on medical education and training, jointly with the University of Birmingham. We were impressed with Purple Rock’s attention to detail in the organising of the event, their liaison with speakers and their professionalism and diligence on the day. What we appreciated most about working with Max and her team was their ability to respond promptly to issues, adapt to last minute changes, communicate effectively and keep everyone happy and deliver above and beyond the expected results.
Chief Executive, Health Education England
Max has worked for me both as an employee and an independent consultant. If you want a professional high-quality service, then you need Max. She makes the whole process appear simple and stress free, she is calm, efficient and extremely hard working.
I have fantastic testimonials from delegates who have attended events that Max has organised on my behalf, and this has only strengthened mine and my team’s reputation. Max has the ability to turn your vison and ideas into reality and making suggestions to ensure the event is innovative and fresh. She will offer a different perspective but will always have her customers best interests at heart.
Max is extremely capable, adaptable, flexible and resourceful. I have found that if I go out to tender Max always represents good value for money. I would not contemplate undertaking an event without Max.
Director of Leadership Health Education England, West Midlands
My previous experience of commissioning Purple Rock to deliver national events was so positive that it was without a second thought that I recommended them to manage our annual conference and awards ceremony.
Max and the team immediately brought an enthusiasm and energy to organising and managing the event form to overall concept down to the smallest detail, making the event a success from beginning to end.
Their knowledge, experience and professionalism were evident to our team throughout enabling the delegates to experience an event that ran smoothly and to plan.
Purple Rock has always delivered, and I look forward to working with you again in the future.

I wanted to say thank you to you for all your hard work for our team recognition awards. As always it was a truly wonderful event and you once again translated my vision into reality. I can't thank you enough.
We have received so many positive comments and feedback already from our stakeholders.
You truly are amazing and always make me feel calm and relaxed about the whole affair! Truly thank you.
Head of Leadership and OD, Health Education England
I had the pleasure of working with Max and the Purple Rock Team in the production and event management of the EAHSN NHS Readiness Series of Events during 2017/2018. They stepped in at short notice and delivered the events by making the processes slick and efficient. I would be happy to recommend them to any organisation looking for professional event management and logistics support.

We have worked with Max on a series of one and two days events throughout the UK over an 18 month period – knowing Max was in charge of logistics allowed us to have peace of mind that all would go well. We would welcome the opportunity to work with Max again.

We have worked with Maxine for a number of years and know we are in professional hands. Maxine is the consummate professional when it comes to event management including the post event activities as well. Having Maxine to manage the event allows us to spend our time with our clients rather than worrying about the event details. We would recommend Maxine and her colleagues to anyone looking for professional, well managed competitively priced and creative events.

It is always a pleasure to work with Max Jones and her team at Purple Rock Events. Their focus on strong partnerships with clients and suppliers alike is what gives them their ability to provide effective event solutions. The experience and attention to detail that Purple Rock applies across all aspects of an event is a distinct benefit to any event organiser.

The National event with over 1500 delegates ran seamlessly with all event partners, sponsors and exhibitors and produced a 10 out of 10 event, all made possible by Max’s extensive experience, organisational skills, attention to detail, commitment, patience and flexibility. We have worked together on numerous national events over an 10 year period, and I look forward to a continued working relationship.

My conference would not have been delivered to the standard that it was had Max not been on board with the project. To say that she was a lifesaver is an understatement! Max’s experience shone through as she led me through unfamiliar territory; a true example of why everyone should use an event organiser.
The Transplant Trust
School Food Trust worked with Max on a series of pilot events to launch the ‘Let’s Get Cooking’ campaign. The events were unusual in that significant changes were made after feedback from each of the previous events. Max proved to be very adaptable, creative and whilst challenging some of our ideas and thinking, remained professional and unfazed and produced high professional events for us.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Max Jones when she organised a national event for Wiltshire County Council. Maxine’s professionalism and eye for details shone through every step of the way, from the first brief to the actual event.
Maxine deals with our every need from personally visiting the hotels where prospective delegates might stay to dealing directly with the venue and the venue staff. She gathered information on transport and routes which gave delegates travel options, put finishing touches and delegate packs together, collated mailing lists, sent out invitations and confirmations of bookings and even aggregated all the information from the evaluation forms of the day. Nothing was left to chance due to Maxine’s vast experience, knowledge, flair, versatility and total dedication to the customer.
Wiltshire County Council
Purple Rock Events are very efficient and never miss a trick. They create and maintain excellent systems so if there are ever any queries, for present and past events, we can rely on the information being available. Feedback from our customers about these events has been fantastic. Maxine's commitment and passion is a great asset. I really enjoy working alongside the team and wish Purple Rock Events a great future.

Our event's success was due to the seamless behind the scenes work put in by Max. Max made it all seem effortless. The forward planning and anticipation of our every need, and our guests’ needs was second to one. It was an absolute pleasure and joy to work with such a professional, organised event organiser.
Birmingham City Council
I have had the pleasure of working with Maxine and her very efficient team for four years. They have managed a significant number of events from small scale team meetings to large scale conferences. All have been handled with professionalism and great efficiency. I know when we work with them I don’t need to worry about any aspect of an events organisation. Feedback from delegates has also been highly complementary.

Max Jones and her company Purple Rock Events provided the event management for ‘Opening the Door – coaching as an enabler for cultural change’ conference. Max provided event booking, delegate, speaker and venue liaison and ensured the day ran smoothly. Max worked with us as part of the team before and after the event, as well as on the day. Her professionalism, pro activity and swift responses were a pleasure to work with. I would happily recommend Max and Purple Rock event management.

On behalf of NHS Diabetes and Dr Gerry Rayman, I am writing to thank you and your team for your all your help with the ‘National Inpatient Audit to Action Event held on 19th October.

We received many appreciative comments on Friday from attendees who told us they enjoyed the day and we look forward to the formal evaluation which we trust will reflect these comments. Thank you so much for your part in making this a successful event.
Regional Programme Manager South
We are extremely pleased that we employed Purple Rock Events to manage the 2013 SystmOne National User Group Conference. From the very start Max demonstrated her personal commitment to the event, supporting the committee at every step of the way. She provided invaluable advice throughout, was reliable, professional and trustworthy, and remained enthusiastic even when the rest of us were flagging. The whole team were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble – I would highly recommend their truly excellent services."
