What our known associates say

We firmly believe that word of mouth is the best form of marketing. Hearing first-hand information based on existing client or attendee experiences is priceless. Read on and find out for yourself!

Ok so now that I have had a chance to stop, slow down and take it all in... $%#! how amazing was last night's launch and all the hype today? We did it :)) I have to say I'm really sad it's over as I have loved working with KAE and especially you as all your non bs guidance and approach totally floats my boat and style of work. I learned so much about events and marketing and PR etc from this experience. I need to find us a new project so I can keep you in my sights. Tam I don't think a million thank yous will ever be enough to repay you for what you have done for me. I just adore you. C xx"

If I were to describe our Happy Physio Launch event with Known Associates in one word it would be.... WOW!
From day one of our first meeting, you could feel the passion and energy from Tamara and Sonja.  I knew straight away that we were going to be a great team!!
Everything was organised throughout; catch ups planned when needed and the main part that exceeded my expectations was use of initiative and simplicity.  More often than not all that I was required to do was give the go ahead and everything would be organised quickly and swiftly.  Creativity from the whole team in regards to the design aspect was fabulous and matched in perfectly with our branding.  All of our clients were very impressed by the custom made candles that were hand delivered with their VIP event invitations - the event experience & hype started well before the event which was shown via social media.  I have no doubts that we will be holding more events in the future and it excites me that I have full confidence in Tamara and her team to not only get the job done but exceed everyone's expectations!!!  Thank you so much ladies!!"

Applying for an internship with Known Associates was the best decision that I made in 2016. Having the opportunity to learn from and work with Tamara Cook has been a dream, and she never fails to amaze me. From our first meeting Tamara has been nothing but warm and welcoming, and has taught me many skills and lessons useful in both the events industry and everyday life. She has also been wonderfully encouraging throughout my internship, and has brought out a confidence in myself that I never knew I had. Her passion for paying it forward and supporting others is incredibly inspiring, and I will be forever grateful to have begun my working life in the events industry with Tamara."

My internship with Known Associates Events has been the best work experience I've ever done. The program is highly personalised and the constraints of your experience are almost entirely up to you.  Tamara ensures you receive value from your work by giving constructive feedback and she will regularly ask you which tasks you want to work on to either utilise your strengths or build up your weaknesses.

Tamara and Sonja not only take you under their wings and have you feeling like part of the Known Associates family, they provide opportunities to work with real clients and complete tasks that truly impact event outcomes.  The level of trust and responsibility is greatly appreciated. Tamara has a knack for maintaining her authority while creating a comfortable work environment where seniority has little impact and every team member feels free to speak openly. You truly feel your input is valued and contributes to the success of every event. I'm thankful to Known Associates for allowing me to express my creative side, work to see my ideas become reality and providing me with invaluable experience and skills I could have obtained very few places.

I admire the way Tamara has curated her own career and focuses the business around the importance of giving back. This has shown me the joy that comes with following your passion and reaffirmed the importance of creating a career which stays true to your ideals.

Above all, the best part of working with the team is the fierce friends I have made, and knowing I will always be a Known Associate."

I can’t recommend Tamara’s work highly enough. Lifeline WA has been fortunate enough to have had Known Associate Events work on their annual Black Diamond Gala Dinner ever since the event was created 5 years ago. Tamara has a keen eye for detail and her passion for creating unique experiences is evident in the high quality events that she produces.

We are incredibly grateful for Tamara’s continued support and invaluable input into creating such memorable Black Diamond events."

I have had the pleasure of both working at and attending events managed by Known Associates Events for many years. I have found all of the events to be professional, unique and enjoyable experiences. Tamara is wonderful to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending Known Associates to deliver superbly your next function or event."

"Known Associates really considered our target audience, our organisation ethos and came up with some wonderful quirky ideas and beautiful branding concepts for our inaugural Giggle Ball Perth 2016. Our event flowed smoothly and a number of guests and staff remarked how much attention to detail there was, from the moment they walked the red carpet to the beautiful table settings at dinner. Working with Tamara and her team has been nothing but a pleasure. They have made my job so easy, and have enabled me to focus on internal actions around our event. Huge thanks from the whole team.

We LOVE working with Tamara Kiragu Cook, we perform at a number of events throughout the year and Known Associates Events certainly know how to take the WOW FACTOR to another level! Obviously attention to detail is of the upmost importance. Warning: prepare to have a HUGE night, you’re goin' to remember this one for a long time."
