Working with University of Limerick
“Sharon is a highly organised and professional event planner. UL Conferencing and Events had engaged Sharon to manage large international events held at the University of Limerick. Sharon’s most recent engagement included the event planning and management of the World Medical and Health Games. This involved the management of multi-sport competitions running concurrently for approximately 1,000 medical professionals who attended the event. Medical professionals across 4 continents attended and Sharon’s knowledge and exceptional organisational skills ensured that all cultural and dietary requirements were not alone fulfilled but surpassed. Sharon was also engaged to launch an International Singing Festival ‘Limerick Sings’ in 2015/16. Sharon developed and nurtured international agents and contacts to ensure both a successful launch and a perpetual event that has gone from strength to strength. This music event involved the management of many distinguished venues throughout the Mid-West, which added significantly to the sense of occasion and status of the event. Sharon was also appointed to manage the Alexander Technique International Congress in 2015, which involved the complete management of 700 clients for a week-long congress. Sharon is accomplished and the ultimate professional who won’t engage unless she can give your event the time and attention it requires. I have no hesitation whatsoever in strongly recommending Sharon McMeel as an event planner.”
