Darley engaged the services of Event Advocates Australia to oversee one if its most important and high profile events in Victoria. A great deal of trust was placed on Jay to work independently, not only to deliver the final product, but to work together with local staff and manage relationships with suppliers on Darley's behalf. His thorough reporting constantly reassured me that, at all stages of the project, the brief was adhered to and being managed within budget. His vast knowledge of the industry also saw Jay broker superior deals with suppliers that we would not have otherwise been able to, helping the budget immensely.
Jay was a pleasure to work with and at all times displayed a level of professionalism that makes me very comfortable in recommending him for any event tasks in the future.

The Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC) engaged Event Advocates Australia to provide specialist signage and event presentation management services and was engaged due to Jay Arrowsmith’s extensive event facility design and delivery management experience on many major events including the Melbourne Cup Carnival, AFL Grand Final and previous Formula 1 Grands Prix.
Event Advocates developed a structured and systematic approach to the ordering, design, production and installation of over 4,000 pieces of signage for the event and also brought previous experience, and a structured approach, to the design and implementation of the event presentation for the entire venue. The involvement of Event Advocates also produced a legacy of improved documentation and processes for signage and event presentation.

With an undoubted aptitude for events, Jay managed all aspects of our Business Lunch at Crown Palladium, including securing all of the venue arrangements, developing the program & timings and managing the budget - effectively it was on his head to ensure that the day was a success, both as an enjoyable experience for our guests, as well as financially for our club. On both fronts he shone through. His decision-making, passion and management capability was of the highest order and the lunch was a resounding success.
Without hesitation I can highly recommend Jay for managing any such events.
