Our Clients Have Their Say...
Partner, Ward Keller
'Ward Keller has had a close association with Andrea Wicking and Salty Plum Events for many years.
Salty Plum Events has been an integral part of planning and managing our annual Budget Breakfast business event.
Andrea is simply sensational! She is creative, responsive, takes initiative and best of all, has a wonderful sense of humour. We love Andrea!'
Past Chair, Charles Darwin University Foundation
'In 2016 Salty Plum worked with us to put together the first Charles Darwin Black Tie Dinner.
As Chair of the Foundation, I had not had need previously to put together such a large function and the thought of doing so was very daunting.
From my very first discussion with Andrea I felt a huge sense of relief as it was obvious she knew exactly what she was doing. Andrea totally understood the brief and we were able to rely heavily on her experience and professionalism.
This professionalism ensured that our function launched successfully and is now a fixture on the Darwin social calendar.
Thank you Salty Plum - you are amazing!'
Executive Director, Master Builders Association NT
‘We needed to put together an important industry event with no time available for the usual planning and preparation. All that was available was a few days from concept to delivery.
We knew that Salty Plum events could step into that challenge and they would deliver exactly what we needed, which was a high profile business lunch featuring the Federal Defence Minister.
The event proved to be a great success!
That is the advantage of turning to a firm with the expertise and systems at its fingertips.'
Janette Beedell AMM
Director, Conference and Events, Targetted Program Management Pty Ltd
'Salty Plum Events worked pre-event and onsite with our TPM Events team for a national conference in Darwin.
Working with Andrea was like having our own DMC with all the expert knowledge we could hope for as well as having a dedicated person on the ground in the lead up.
During the conference Salty Plum integrated with our team seamlessly and Andrea was a pleasure to work and play with.'
Project Coordinator, Imagination Sydney
'Working along Andrea and the wider Salty Plum Events team was amazing.
They supported us on the Telstra NATSIA Awards and were amazing in every component.
It was wonderful to have someone with such a wealth of knowledge for an event such as this!
Definitely get in touch with Andrea should you need Salty Plum Events in any relevant capacity.'
Past Chair, Government House Foundation of the Northern Territory
'Andrea Wicking takes event management to a new level based on her ability to anticipate opportunities and challenges.
Andrea always listens to our ideas and then applies her creative skills to deliver highly successful events.
Her diligence and attention to detail are the foundation of her business.
I am happy to recommend Salty Plum Events as an event management specialist, whether your event is large or small.'
Amelia Northcott MIML, Head of Engagement SA/NT, Institute of Managers and Leaders
'Based in Adelaide and holding a signature event in Darwin for our members, Andrea came on board to assist in the ground work for IML ANZ, liaising directly with the venue and sourcing catering with local suppliers in Darwin, a knowledge I certainly didn't have.
And to top it off, the day before I was due to fly up to Darwin I was struck down with a heavy flu and was unable to travel.
Andrea stepped up to the role and oversaw the event from beginning to end. Thank you Andrea, our event was a great success due to your commitment and local insight.'
Chief Executive Officer, Industry Capability Network NT
'Andrea worked with the Northern Territory Business Council in facilitating an industry forum we wanted to undertake.
She's a very professional person!
She knows her business and applies the 'measure twice - cut once' approach with her preparation.
And she's a pleasure to deal with!'
Past CEO, RSPCA Darwin
'I have had the pleasure of working with Salty Plum Events on several occasions and highly recommend their services.
Andrea Wicking is a very talented and fully professional event planner, well connected and will inject energy and fun into your event experience.'
Rotary Club of Darwin
'The Rotary Club of Darwin conducted the Ladies Long Lunch in 2016 and 2017, in the process raising a considerable sum in support of local charities.
Salty Plum Events was there in the background as event planner and coordinator, advisor and mentor.
None of the complexities from organisation to detailed arrangement on the day were too much and it is fair to say that the event would not have happened to the quality standard needed without that input.'
