Phil Casey, previous Chief Executive Officer Daydream Island Resort and Spa

Karen is a high achieving sales professional with excellent account management and business development skills and is well connected and liked in the MICE and corporate industries. I would highly recommend Karen’s skill set and contacts she has acquired to any company that is looking to further develop their business in the Meeting and Events market. Karen introduced a higher level of professionalism into Daydream’s Conference and Events Sales which resulted in growing this business sector whilst attracting more prominent organisations to conference at our facility. Karen was also instrumental with increasing the level of service standard in which we operate our MICE business, resulting in more positive client experiences, and referral business.

Michelle Avis, General Manager, The Artisan Hunter (previously event manager for Fuji Xerox Australia)

Karen is a seasoned sales professional that understands the unique blend between corporate client requirements and MICE market vendor matching. I would strongly recommend Karen’s capability and network to businesses wishing to further develop in this area. Karen supported me in running a large scale logistical event on Daydream Island, where we took over the whole island and turned it into a survivor incentive program for Fuji Xerox Australia. Karen’s can do attitude, technical ability, people and project management ensured everything ran smoothly, delivering a very successful result for our business.

Vickie Scoobie, Director, Conference in Style

In September 2013 I started planning a large conference for one of my major clients. The process involved issuing a tender and receiving submissions from a number of Australian Resorts.  My initial contact at Daydream Island was Karen Maher and I dealt with her throughout the process of selecting, negotiating and executing the conference on Daydream Island. In all aspects of my business dealings with Karen, I have found her to be most professional with her knowledge and follow up. This particular conference proved to be one of the most successful I have been involved with due in no small part to the efforts of Karen.
