"We have just completed a 'Surgical Fellows' reunion in Edinburgh organised superbly by ACS Global. From the start to the finish their efficiency, response to queries and proactive management of the whole event was outstanding, particularly considering the large number of delegates from all over the world. As a result we had a most memorable meeting and highly recommend them to anyone who wishes to organise similar meetings in the future."

"I have been supported by Camilla O’Brien and her team in a number of ways over recent years. I can recommend ACS Global unreservedly since they have delivered professional and efficient advice to me in managing the surgical organisations and conferences with which I have been involved over the years. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with them since they are effective problem solvers and networkers. They have demonstrated an excellent understanding of the obligations required to run a charity and business. I cannot recommend them highly enough."

Regius Professor of Clinical Surgery

"I have had the distinct pleasure of working with the team at ACS Global over the last two years as a scientific program director for a major international surgical society. In short, their support has been spectacular. I have had the fortune of working with these true professionals. Their responsiveness is superior and their attention to detail is exceptional. They have significantly eased the process of delivering a large international Congress through their proactive, knowledgeable style. They know how to push the ball down the court. Beyond that, they are wonderful human beings who I now count among my friends. Working with ACS Global has been among my more memorable professional experiences."

"I have worked with ACS Global for a few years and can honestly say that this is a highly professional and supportive outfit. Professional Association work can be taxing on already busy professional life, yet ACS Global through their incredible professional and efficient systems have made this aspect of my own life seamless and incredibly rewarding. Their depth and breadth of skills and ability to effect solutions are commendable. No project or activity is too much trouble for them. They always have their finger on the pulse and are there when you need them. As a group ACS Global have become the standard against which all such organisations should be judged."

Prof Martin D Smith
Assistant Head of School of Clinical Medicine
Academic Head of the Department of Surgery
University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg

"Faced with a behemoth task, such as running an international conference, the workload is daunting and every detail needs careful consideration. I had this experience in 2016, and working with ACS Global made this process feasible, organised, manageable, and enjoyable. As a busy academic surgeon it is only possible to succeed in these endeavours with good partnerships. This group is extraordinarily responsive, thorough, and warm. I hope to work closely with them in the future."

Prof David A. Kooby
Chief of Emory Surgery
Northern Arc Emory University School of Medicine

"IHPBA is very fortunate to have ACS Global as the association management team. The team has been able to work with Presidents and officers from different countries, understanding the needs and translating them into prompt action. It is a team with different skill sets, not only in meeting management but also for legal help, negotiation of contracts and for conference management. The group of committed ladies - Camilla, Alison, Jen, Anne and Carol - has been closely associated with IHPBA for the last three years. The insights and advice by the management team were very helpful in many other situations. What has impressed me most is the commitment to the association and promptness in action. I would grade them as an A+ team for any professional association."
