“Thanks to all of you – you’re running a class act there!”

What people are saying about our Temporary Convention Staff:

“I wanted to highlight the exceptional services that JOHNLEONARD provided for our event. Your team was responsive in a short period of time, even given the weather, and the staff they provided to support the conference was top-notch. Staff members took the initiative, were flexible with assignments, and worked extra hours when requested. Just plain ol’ friendly too!”

– Kyle W., Event Manager

You were a big part of that success, Samantha, for pulling together such a congenial and hard-working crew. I was particularly impressed with Diane and LaTonya’s efficiency. They were super about proactively managing inventory and jumping in to replenish as needed. The rest of the team worked hard, were friendly and efficient. Thanks again for Leslie and Delphine’s flexibility to help us out. John managed the crew’s breaks well. The entire team is to be congratulated for their hard work and great attitudes. Lots of smiles going around yesterday.”

 – Pat H., Co-Principal

“I wanted to take a minute to let you know what a wonderful experience we had working with the team assigned to the Medical Group Management Association Show this week. I worked directly with John who was assigned as the supervisor and we successfully navigated through a few schedule updates. We are so appreciative you were able to accommodate our changes. I wanted to call out a few of your staff that I worked with directly at registration because they were truly a delight and worked as
an extension of our team. Lydia Capuano was friendly, responsive, and extremely well versed in everything we needed to have a successful event. In addition to Lydia, we had the pleasure of working with Eric Kennedy. Eric was a wealth of information knowing exactly where everything can be found in the convention center as well as throughout the city. He was eager to help anyone who walked up. One other person I would like to mention is a gentleman by the name of Thomas Flint, he was working the information desk and handled the attendee traffic as they navigated from sessions to the next stop in their schedules. He was really great, very friendly and helpful asking all the right questions of our guests to make sure they were headed to the appropriate area for their needs. We were happy to have your team onsite with us this year and hope to work with you on many shows in the future.”

 -Jennifer C., Sr. Project Manager

Annette, Diane, Paul, and Xavion were all wonderful. Paul took charge as he was very knowledgeable of the event space and even assisted in helping schedule breaks for the other temp staff to ensure that they were not all gone at once. He answered attendees’ questions in detail and when he did not know the answer, he personally would walk them to the registration desk to ensure they were guided to the right place. Paul also took it upon himself to ensure our registration desk was fully stocked with appropriate supplies (program books, lanyards, badges, etc.) and greeted guests while helping them put their badges together. Xavion paid particular attention to details that our staff were too busy to pay attention to. For example, he ensured that attendees were not taking photos of abstracts (as this is not allowed) and even suggested moving the sign that says, “picture taking is not allowed” to a more visible spot. He communicated clearly when he would be on break and when he was back. Finally, he did a great job managing time during a very important sessions that ensured it all ran on time and attendees were where they should be.” 

– Stephanie H., Senior Event Manager

“The staffers once and again demonstrated a high level of professionalism, enthusiasm, and energy. This was the perfect recipe for a successful event. The Supervisors, I can’t thank them enough. The way they adjusted to the onsite situations was phenomenal. (we need to have them back on the coming up event). Like I’ve told them we are not a team anymore, we became a big family.”

– Grase O., Events Manager and Operations 

“Everyone you sent us was professional, punctual, courteous, and friendly. A few stood out from the rest because of their personality or because of the position they worked for us and how they handled it. The badge printing station was a new station for us and we didn’t expect the volume we received on the opening day. Dorothy, Leslie, Michael G, and Armi were able to handle the volume with professionalism along with a warm welcome to our attendees. Maya was perfect in the special assistance role. She was kind, caring, and patient. She was on time and kept in touch with the attendee as well as me. Fred was wonderful as a greeter, he is a big personality and thrives in this position. Maria, get this lady a full-time microphone, she spoke clearly while using a commanding voice. If you ever get asked for an announcer you have found your person! John is a great communicator and would jump in wherever needed with a smile.”

– Jennifer P., Meeting Specialist 

“We had a great conference with the help of your staff. They were wonderful to work with, accommodating to our needs, and very helpful. There were a few staff members that I feel really went above and beyond to make our conference guests welcome. They were eager to help, took the time to learn the conference, read the agenda, understand our mobile app, and always had a welcoming smile for the guests.”

– Michele A.,Financial & Project Management

“Everyone was so great!! They truly made my job so much easier, especially since this was my first convention with HRS and the first one that I’ve planned in a while!! John, Joe, Kervin, Michelle, and Tak were especially great. Everyone was super helpful and very happy to be back at work, I couldn’t have asked for a better crew!! Thanks again for all of your help on the front end and I hope to work with you again when we return in 2024. Hopefully, things will be more back to “normal” than they are now!!”

– Pamela H., Meetings and Events Manager

“Your employees are such amazing people and ran our registration area with efficiency, warmth, and such contagious joy. This is my fourth conference where I’ve overseen registration and worked with our local temp employees, and I have never been so impressed by any of the previous groups I have gotten to work with. They had everything down to such an effortless system, and I rarely had to assist them with any questions. A lot of our conference attendants came up to me throughout the week to tell me how great they are and there were even some of our registrants who pulled up a chair next to their tables, just to talk with them when things slowed down. My time in Boston was so memorable, and a big part of that was getting to work alongside your employees.”

– Rob T., Administrative Coordinator 

“Your staff was so professional, so caring, and quickly provided me the help I needed and then went above and beyond to ensure I understood the issue and how to fix it. They really embodied the principle of customer service, and you are lucky to have them as they are wonderful, goodwill ambassadors. Thanks to all of you – you’re running a class act there!”

– Roberta S., Conference Attendee

“Your staff was wonderful onsite, very professional, courteous, friendly, and helpful in every way possible. The supervisor John, was extremely professional and on top of everything. Thank you so much for all of your help. Your staff helped to make the conference registration process seamless for our attendees. I look forward to working with you again next year!”

– Jennifer M., Registration and Events Manager

“Thank you so much for reaching out and for providing another fantastic crew for our event! Everyone was professional, pleasant, and hard working. It was a pleasure working with you all and we look forward to doing so again soon!”

– Brittany B., Event Manager

“Everything went really well. Your team did a great job and I really enjoyed working with them. They were all very professional and friendly and were very adaptable to all the changes that come with a large meeting. I appreciate all they did and they were a pleasure to work with.”

– Lisa C., Registration Specialist 

“The staff was terrific as always! Everyone was professional, courteous, and friendly. No issues at all. It was great to see so many familiar faces. Thank you for everything. You and the team are truly a pleasure to work with!”

– Jenn M., Meetings and Event Registration Manager

“Your team was awesome. They came in and quickly jumped in to learn the system and asked questions when needed. I enjoyed working with the JOHNLEONARD registration staff.”

– Shelon A., Director, Exhibits & Revenue Programs
