“Some people are good presenters. Some are good writers. Some are good at developing businesses, motivating staff, spotting and developing opportunities. Some are good at engaging with people. Tony Rogers manages to combine all these skills with a modesty that does him credit. He’s a gentleman – and he’s bloody good at what he does!” Richard McCann, PhD, MBA, CEO of Friday’s PR www.fridaysPR.com


“I have worked with Tony on numerous occasions. Tony is a gracious, knowledgeable and extremely personable gentleman who takes time to ensure that all details and perspectives are covered of whatever project is undertaken. I admire his tenacity for detail, robust sense of fairness and willingness to approach new tasks analytically, producing excellent results every time. I would be happy to fully recommend Tony.” Rachel Ley, Managing Director, RLC Productions


“I cannot recommend Tony highly enough – Tony has forgotten more than most folk know about the business tourism industry! Tony is great to work with and is always on-task and results-driven, which means he always produces desired outcomes for his client. Tony’s methodical approach and amazing attention to detail are legendary amongst his peers and I still have a brilliant working relationship with Tony and ‘page the oracle’ regularly as a colleague and a friend!” Tracy Johnson, Marketing Director, FAB!


“I view Tony as the ultimate source of industry information, but he has never been too busy to stop and help a greener colleague, which is frankly amazing given the workload he has always juggled.” Sarah Webster, Webster Wright Marketing Communications (and past Director of the Incentive Travel & Meetings Association)

“Few people can justly claim to have the depth and breadth of knowledge of the meetings industry that Tony Rogers has accumulated through his many years of experience at the cutting edge of developments in destination marketing, conference planning and conference education and training. His contribution in these fields is unrivalled, and his valuable insights into the challenges and opportunities facing the meetings industry in the UK and beyond put him in an ideal position to work in partnership with those who are charged with developing this sector now and in the years that lie ahead.” Rob Davidson, internationally renowned writer, speaker and trainer (with his own consultancy, MICE Knowledge) and formerly Senior Lecturer (Conference and Event Management) at the University of Greenwich
