THE THINGS THEY SAY . . .
"Your columns are always
fun to read and always make good points. I think our guys benefit
from seeing "how the other half lives."
In 2003, Newton's celebrated 20 years (except one), of managing and hosting Australia's first regional architectural awards. It was the Gold Coast's style of awards which was subsequently copied and adopted by Queensland and other RAIA branches around Australia.
"On behalf of the Gold Coast
and Tweed Region of the RAIA, I would like to sincerely thank you for
hosting our 20th Anniversary celebrations. It has been a wonderful milestone
for our region to achieve. We have appreciated your professional service
to our program and thank you for the time you spent in preparing for the
"You set a high bench mark for the other regions
to reach.... The best awards night I have ever attended. Thanks mate"
"I just love what you have done
on the web….you make me laugh!"
Newton's was engaged by the Returning Officers for the education campaign aimed at limiting vote wastage for the election of the Gold Coast's first super council. The campaign was highly successful.
"I wish to express our sincere
thanks for the very efficient and courteous manner in which you undertook
the campaign at such short notice...the desired effect was achieved by
"...Newtons held a very positive attitude
towards the project which reflected a very personal concern for the future
of our city..."
"...became recognised internationally as one of the outstanding environmental technology projects in Australia. Much of this interest in and indeed support for the technology can be accredited to the quality work that Newtons undertook as consultants..."
"They completed commissioned work on time (occasionally
to very exacting deadlines) and always to the very high standards expected
by the company..."
"...several of the countrys leading businesses
gave us 10/10 for our corporate and public relations strategies. Newtons
rightly share the credit for that achievement."
"Rarely if ever, does one have the opportunity
to work in the public relations area with a company and personnel of
the high standing of your organisation..."
"We are most satisfied with the continuous development
of our Corporate image and the highly professional attitude of Newtons
"...a remarkable night with a great build up and
"My sincere thanks for your outstanding service and contribution in preparing and finalising the promotional material, particularly given the little time you had to work with."
"It has been a pleasure to work with a company
that is both enthusiastic and professional. Unfortunately, a dying
breed these days."
"Thanks for being our spokesman at the recent Agent's
function - you did a wonderful job. It was great to have a confident,
"...Pontian script is excellent."
"Script is superb. Please value add to the images. I
trust your selection skills!"
"The satisfaction expressed to you by Professor Azman
in regard to the Steering Committee presentation has been confirmed
to us by a number of parties. Our strategising team effort and your
on-location scripting and packaging for the multimedia presentation
contributed significantly to the success achieved in having all of
the planning team's recommendations for massive redevelopment of the
CBD accepted by the Steering committee. The integration of Newton's
communications role within our team's consultancy package has greatly
enhanced our ability to manage the expression of our urban and infrastructure
planning inputs within those deliverables which can most effectively
influence decision making processes. The powerful impact of fully integrated
and well managed public communications services has been greatly appreciated
by our client."
"....thank you very much for your efforts culminating
in our 21st celebration. I have had a number of highly complimentary
comments made about the organisation of the night and the venue. The
compliments largely reflect your effort. "
"You provided those in attendance with an excellent
view of the technical and creative aspect of the multi-media challenge
in a manner that was clear and understandable to an interested but
inexperienced audience. Many compliments were noted and the Australian
Institute of Management is the better for being able to be associated
with the knowledge and expertise you brought to us."
"Thanks Mister PR Extraordinaire. We were very happy
with your coordination of our special day of Accreditation. I was most
impressed, as always"
"The ability to support our submission with the video
certainly enhanced our presentation and it was apparent to all that the
Neumann/Newton video was the superior presentation of the night."
"Professional video documentaries were made by the personal,
spontaneous dedication of Ken Newton, Managing Director of Newton's Corporate
"Your input and dedication has made this past conference
(VASA Surf the Seas of Change 2001), one of the most successful yet
could not have done it without you."
...and the best of all - around the time Ken left the employ
