“GEMS Event Management engaged Mayvin Global/Deanna Varga to provide executive coaching. We required strategic marketing, to develop structure and frameworks around our marketing plan, particularly with the impact of COVID-19. With Deanna’s expertise in business events and deep understanding of associations, she was able to provide practical, timely advice that was easy to implement. Her manner and approach was consultative, ensuring regular check-ins as well as providing adhoc advice when we needed it. Her skills, expertise and advice lead to doors opening that otherwise would not have. As an SME, this was an investment we considered worthwhile and would highly recommend Mayvin Global and Deanna”.
"Deanna assisted Clockwise Consulting in launching representation of the Los Angeles Tourism and Convention Board into the Australian Business Events market. Deanna's reputation and connections in the sector enabled us to open doors in a short time frame. Deanna's strategic approach, relationship development and knowledge of the business events sector in addition to her passion was highly beneficial to our business."
"In 2019-20, Tourism Central Coast have had the pleasure of working with Mayvin Global on business events opportunities for our industry, including engaging Deanna Varga to deliver a webinar on the value of business events.
Deanna’s expertise, experience and tailored presentation skills were effective in engaging with an audience of businesses ranging from those with no experience in the business events sector, to large organisations for whom the sector is commercially and strategically very important. Mayvin Global demonstrated extensive knowledge across and pre-eminent expertise in delivering a virtual event that was engaging, informative and of practical value to our tourism business community.
I have no hesitation in recommending Deanna and Mayvin Global for their insights, expertise and experience in business events, both physical and virtual."
“The Mayvin Global team of experts were committed to this project and of particular value was their deep understanding of tourism. Deanna and her team drove the project which was invaluable, as I didn’t have the time to drive it. They had to contend with changes to the schedule as a result of bushfires and then COVID-19, and their ability to develop new approaches or options and still deliver a strategy and recommendations was to be commended. The outcomes of this will shape the future of Women in Tourism. Thanks Deanna, Lynda, Kirsty and Ashleigh.”
"Web Noise engaged Deanna Varga to conduct a training module as part of the program we deliver to LGNSW. The session Social Media for Local Councillors is a half day interactive face to face workshop. With the impact of COVID-19, this training had to move to virtual delivery.
From the outset, Deanna was professional, not fazed by the format change, demonstrated a deep understanding of the content and importantly a depth of knowledge of Local Councillors and what would resonate. Keeping Councillor’s attention for a half day is no easy task – and Deanna from Mayvin Global delivered. She really thought about how to adapt the content and delivery methods to reflect the virtual environment and ensure clear takeaways for attendees.
As a small business, our reputation means everything. Deanna was respectful and considerate of our brand and representing us. Following the feedback from her training session, we have re-engaged Deanna for future training programs."
"Mayvin Global was engaged to support LGNSW in revitalising our annual tourism conference program content, targeted to LGNSW Councils. Deanna and Sally brought strategic insights as tourism subject matter experts and also demonstrated a deep understanding of business events. Mayvin Global made speaker and topic recommendations that were adopted as well as opened doors to their extensive network.
Their appreciation for the Not for Profit sector and what a conference means to us as an organisation has added an additional dimension. We are very much looking forward to the Tourism 2020 conference and the refreshed program."
“Mayvin Global were engaged by Bleached Arts to conduct a feasibility review of one of our Gold Coast based performing arts projects.
We found them to be strategic in their approach, providing key commercialisation advice and were respectful of key stakeholders. We had project delays unrelated to the work provided by Mayvin Global, however, they were flexible and provided suggestions to address the impacts as well as identifying the risks of go/no go actions. The commercial expertise provided by Mayvin Global has given us important insights into our business.”
“Mighty thanks for your expertise in helping our associations in areas of sustainable growth and sharing tips on income generation. Without Mayvin Global, these associations may not have connected or created collaborations.
Sharing your views and perspective as an Australian in introducing and updating the Sarawak industry was vital! We needed that nudge that only an outsider can give. We realised that we have so much “real estate” to improve in the areas of services and the decision-making process.
We’re glad we made the right choice. Thank you, Deanna, and Virginia Loyola.”
"Deanna Varga of Mayvin Global was engaged by AGB Events to work with us on strategy development with the aim of attracting new business. Deanna went well above the agreed brief, she is incredibly attuned to the international arts and tourism industry and has an excellent and open manner with her clients. Deanna is an authentic leader in her field and highly recommended.”
“Deanna Varga/Mayvin Global have helped us secure new commercial opportunities and brought strategic partnerships to us as well as our clients.
They bring savvy strategy, vision and a broad range of connections to our business – which as a family run operation is instrumental. They deliver on time, and I would consider them valuable partners in business events and for tapping into the cultural sector."
“Deanna’s overall strategy enabled us to refine and focus our tourism offer, one that engages both domestic and international audiences, within the context of envisaging the museum’s overarching future and new flagship site in Parramatta.
The findings were incredibly helpful and included quick wins that we could enact immediately.”
“As the owner of a small tourism business, I have nothing but praise for Deanna. I engaged Deanna to assist in preparing a submission for a Tourism Product Development Grant.
Deanna brought to the table an in-depth knowledge of the tourism industry, a great ability to identify new opportunities and avenues, the experience to pull it all together, and the energy to inspire. Her advice and input were definitely instrumental to securing the product development grant for Australian Cycling Holidays.“
