The best decision I made in looking at hosting a luncheon in Ottawa for Meeting Planners was actually to hire a meeting planner to plan the City of Moncton’s event. Heather Lockwood was amazing, starting from the venue selection, menu, well we all know all the details! Heather brought out ideas that we would have not thought of, like I said so fortunate to have had Heather, so organized, pleasant, calm and detailed, can’t say enough about her.

Heather was indispensable in helping us coordinate a client event on Parliament Hill. Her experience and knowledge of protocol provided support for the Events Par Excellence team as we delivered an exceptional event for the client.

Thank you Heather for your most valuable support in organizing a successful International C7 summit under very tight deadlines. Your extensive experience, valuable networks and eternal calm and professionalism contributed enormously to a successful event. We all enjoyed working with you tremendously and your detailed understanding of government protocol was the icing on the cake and most useful for the C7 Summit.

Ottawa Magazine held its first Best New Restaurants Event in January 2017. The sold-out evening was met with rave reviews and much of the credit goes to Heather Lockwood. She worked tirelessly to create a beautiful setting at Ottawa City Hall and brought together not only our Best New Restaurants but other stars in the food and drink world of Ottawa. She is a true professional and a joy to work with.

Organizing events take a special breed of people! Organizing international events within the law enforcement takes special people who also have leadership qualities that allow them to muster the best in their field. Heather Lockwood always delivered high level services while making sure all goes off without a glitch and within a safe and secure environment! I was grateful to have had the opportunity to have her on our team when organizing the International Drugs and Gangs Conference.

Over the past 25 years I have had the opportunity to work with Heather on many national and international events. Heather Lockwood is a master organiser. Her attention to details is second to none. Her ability to get the best value for your money is impressive. She takes the stress out of event planning and the results have always been great.
- Julie Keravel, Former Director General Rights Redress and Resolution Branch Correctional Service of Canada
Heather has organized numerous meetings and conferences for me over the last 15 years, in various locations across Canada including the North. These have ranged from meetings of 30 people to conferences of 150+. Heather’s personal attention always ensures an excellent event. Whether it’s getting just the right meal, adding little touches to a room, searching for the right music for dinner, or finding a specific bottle of wine for a client, she ensures everyone feels taken care of. I’d absolutely recommend Heather to organize any event.
- Shelley Trevethan, Former Executive Director Indian Residential Schools Adjudication Secretariat
I started to work with Heather in 2007 and since that time we have collaborated together on various wine and food events throughout the years. Throughout the planning of and execution of these events, Heather was always showing integrity and high professionalism, seasoned with incredible enthusiasm and passion for the topics. She has handled a variety of requests and job commitments very well, was always pleasant to deal with and was very patient. She has a great capacity for handling multi-tasks and during the crunch time, she performed very calmly. Most important, she was committed to the success of the event and worked often extra hours to get the job done.
