"I worked with Anna on a prestigious dinner for 500 clients at the Maritime Museum. Anna had managed a similar event for one of my colleagues and was highly recommended. Anna immediately understood our requirements and designed the perfect event for our clients. Anna managed a large team on the night and the execution of the event was superb. The feedback was outstanding, which was down to Anna’s hard work, commitment and expertise."EY Global Services
"I hereby confirm that Anna Wills has worked at Kensington Palace for the past three years. Anna has an extensive understanding of the conservation, timings and security implications of working at a unique and historic venue. Despite these challenges she has provided a high standard of service and excellent quality of service. I therefore would not hesitate to recommend Anna to any client hiring Kensington Palace for their event."Kensington Palace and Kew Palace
"Anna is an absolute pro at delivering high end, elegant events. She is a pleasure to work with, the ultimate professional and it filled me with confidence having her run our events."Fraser Hart
"We have had the pleasure of working with Anna on a number of large events and would not hesitate to recommend her to organise your event. Our work together has encompassed a book launch for Hillary Clinton, weddings, corporate receptions and dinners. I was most impressed by her ability to deliver one of the most complicated events in the history of Kensington Palace which encompassed a dinner for 600 guests across all rooms of the Grade One listed State Apartments followed by a performance by Duran Duran in the Pavilion in the grounds of the Palace. On top of this, delegate transport, artists trailers, generators and all the other infrastructure required to pull off such an endeavour was coordinated by Anna. While her professionalism and organisational skills are incredible, she is also an absolute joy to work with and brings an incredible energy to the occasion. With all this in mind we would not hesitate in recommending her to plan events of any complexity and scale."Wise Productions
