I Love receiving Emails like this.  Thanks Rien you rock

“Hi Liam, I’ve just returned from Port Douglas having worked on the APASS Conference as the Facilitator/Emcee and keynote speaker.

I’ve been working as a professional speaker for over 20 years and wanted to sing the praises of Rein who in my opinion and experience has been by far the most professional, capable, responsive, ‘can-do’ and ‘calm-under-the-stress-of-unprofessional-incompany-presenters’ AV person I’ve worked with 

I openly thanked Rein in front of our audience of 130 plus financial advisers, but wanted to also send this note to say how much of a pleasure it was to work with him and I hope I get the opportunity to do so again.

 Warm Regards

Tech of the Week

Friday, September 21st, 2012

This week we celebrate our tireless tech Tom Logistio, they build the Canadians nearly as tough as us Aussies because there is no stopping him.  A busy time for the Bright Black AV team with the AFL Cairns Presentation Dinner, CDRL Presentation Dinner, Australian Occupational Therapy, Australian Timeshare Holiday Ownership Conference, CAT Conference Dinner, Optus Gala dinner featuring the magical Cosentino, Australian Water Association Conference and Gala Dinner – this has been a team effort but without Tom dividing himself between Cairns & Port Douglas we would not have receiving the glowing thank you’s that have come through the office.

First to thank you and the team for Monday night.  Everything worked seamlessly (as expected) and Tom was absolutely brilliant to work with.  Thank you again.

Client Testimonials…a job well done!

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

It’s so gratifying when we receive praise from our clients for a job well done. The BBAV team strive to exceed our client’s expectations at every given opportunity and always give 100% to a project.

We’re very proud of the work ethic and professional conduct of our team and so when we get emails & letters from clients singing their praises we feel that the whole world should hear about it. It was our pleasure to work for Unilever Foodsolutions ANZ, Precedence & Toastmasters.

Thank you for your kind words…..

OMG you guys are awesome! The conference was reported to be the BEST EVER,
and this was largely due to the system you provided us.

It was so easy to use, and Tiger gave us a very thorough briefing. In
years gone by this conference has been plagued with sound issues, and it
was wonderful to have none of those issues this year.

Thanks again for your quick response and very generous quote. I’ll be
happy to recommend you to anyone I talk to organising a similar event.

Kind Regards,
Nicky Jurd

Another comment also made by Jill directly to Accor was;

AV fabulous

Thanks again for all your great work :)

Kind regards,
Alice Hiscock

I would like to take this opportunity to say a very big special thank you to you Alice, Jo, Natalie, Tiger and Jurgen

for all your assistance at our recent conference.

The feedback from the team was excellent and everyone had a wonderful time and I can truly put that

to your professionalism and willingness to assist us in all areas.

The word “No” was never used and you did your utmost to help us even with the most unusual of requests.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for making our 2011 conference such a wonderful event.

Best regards

We never let a little rain spoil our fun..

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

When the Nth QLD Cowboys played the Gold Coast Titans at Barlow Park in Cairns on Feb 26th  we were in the middle of a fortnight-long downpour. The monsoon rains had certainly hit, and not only were we being inundated from above, but there was also so much accumulated ground water that you could’ve staged a heat of the Olympic synchronised swimming competition. (thanks to the aftereffects of a little cyclone called Yasi)

But….we never let a little rain spoil our fun and the show had to go on, so the boys did a quick shopping trip, bought enough tarp to transport a blue whale and got stuck into installing the HK system.

According to the boys – ‘once you’re wet you can’t really get any wetter’ – but I did notice a little extra webbing growing between their toes when they got back to work on Monday.  :-)

More praise for our Techs

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

It’s been a huge couple of weeks for the BBAV team. Our Techs have worked themselves into the ground and we’re soooo proud of their consistently fantastic attitudes and professional performance.

We think they’re pretty amazing, and it’s nice to know our clients echo that sentiment…  Great work guys!

Hi Liam
Just wanting to let you know what a great job Andy and Ollie did last week. The feedback has been fantastic and it was great to work with such a professional team.
Cheers Kate

The new truck arrives.

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

We’re excited! With new audiovisual and themeing equipment arriving daily, we’ve needed to purchase another transport vehicle.
So the original work truck now has a big brother. For our clients, this means we’re able to move more equipment more efficiently. For our team, this means hassle-free loading, delivery and collection.

With 4 vehicles now in the Bright Black AV fleet the garage is a little on the crowded side.  But it’s allowing us to better service our clients and that’s what we’re all about!
