To Whom It May Concern,

This letter serves as a reference for Amanda Christensen, who worked within my office at the Manly Chamber of Commerce, operating as Manly Centre Management.

The Manly Chamber of Commerce liaises with Manly Council on behalf of the precincts businesses and key stakeholders, to coordinate one of Sydney’s premier tourism and retail precincts – Manly Beach, Sydney - Australia.

Amanda, through her 2-month internship was involved with all promotional planning and events in Manly, alongside complex leasing and operational issues, in a diverse, sensitive and ever changing retail environment.

She was involved in all facets of the office, from extensive business and budget planning, to administration, research, marketing, planning and events organisation.

With all correspondence and communication Amanda proved to be honest, helpful, flexible, punctual and reliable. She always displayed a determined nature, even when put in a high stress situation that would test most staff.

An autonomous worker, who is mindful of staff’s workload around her, she was of great support and kept ‘the machine’ well oiled and running at high speed, whilst we as a small team reacted to never ending daily problems.

The office has a varied focus, and Amanda managed the diversity well, keeping on track and enthused!

I wish her all the best for the future, knowing that she will be a success at whatever she puts her hand to and an asset to the company that employs her.

Meegan Clancy Centre Manager

We just had our daughters wedding here at Turnip Rose Promenade and all we can say is WOW!!!!! EVERYTHING was top notch & perfection. We are still getting emails. & texts saying how amazing everything was. Guests could not stop raving about the food which they ALL said was the best wedding meal they've ever had. We were just at a wedding at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills and Turnip Rose was far superior. The service was classy & impeccable. White gloves & jackets along with silver domes added elegance to a gorgeous wedding. Barbi  & Amanda were sensational! The day of the wedding Amanda took care of EVERY detail & kept us on a schedule that flowed beautifully!!! She had our backs! When bride. & groom were about to make grand entrance a guest was about to walk in. & Amanda stopped what could have been a disaster. She is worth her weight in gold. They also work with Creative Cakes in Orange. & Cinderella Cakes for the wedding cake, which is included!! Creative Cakes was far superior in every way to Cinderella Cakes  and fantastic!!! I could go on and on about this amazing venue for a wedding or event. All I can say is they're THE BEST!!!!!!

We had our wedding here on 3/22. Thanks to Chrissy. Amanda, and their staff, we had an amazing. Just as important, we got feedback from our guests and everyone had a great time with special compliments to the service. I especially want to thank Amanda who made the entire event went by so smoothly. If you're going to host an event, I highly recommend this company for their service and professionalism. 

Amanda - thank you for saving my jacket :)

If I could give Celebrations by Turnip Rose 10 stars, I would!!! .... With all of this, there was not much needed from outside vendors. That lead to less planning and we were happy about that! Cut to the wedding day, we were greeted by Chrissy and our "day-of" coordinator, Amanda, while our guests enjoyed cocktail hour. I can't even say enough about the service by all of the staff at Celebrations! They were all SO on point and friendly! But Amanda, oh boy! She was such a lifesaver! Anything I needed, she was there! She even sewed my dress about FIVE TIMES after people stepped on it and ripped the bustle! Holy cow! Really, the service is just above and beyond at Celebrations--Worth every penny! It's weeks later and we are STILL getting compliments on how our wedding was "the best wedding ever" and that the dinner was the "best food at a wedding" they've ever had! :) We couldn't have done it without Chrissy and everyone at Turnip Rose. Thank you SO, SO much for making the biggest day of our lives the BEST day of our lives!!! :)
