A heartfelt thanks for the online closing summit - while we couldn’t meet in person, this really was the next best thing and a masterful use of technology to bring all of us, our ideas and voices together. It’s always so refreshing to have a chance to meet, share and learn from other organisations - and today was no exception.
We reached out to Ay Mey to facilitate our online academic conference that brought together a small group of scholars with the aim of producing an edited volume. In close collaboration with Ay Mey we went through the process of designing the workshop that lasted 2 half-days. Thanks to her innovative format we explored contributions in depth, uncovering new connections between the papers and taking to the surface what participants had in common across disciplines. Ay Mey’s design ensured that all participants felt safe, engaged freely and equally in discussions and were able to focus. It resulted in a fruitful online gathering that was highly engaging and enjoyable from start to finish. This successful format would be difficult, maybe impossible, to duplicate in a physical conference setting!

I cannot believe this online meeting has lasted 3 hours, time has flown by and it’s been a very enjoyable experience. So bravo, it was very well structured and organized.
I can highly recommend to work with Ay Mey. We hired her for two different video projects and she took care of each single step on the way to great outcome. She is very professional and always knows which questions to ask to get to a perfect result. Her calm charisma took away all nervousness from our interviewees and in the end we did not only have a simple conference video, but a real story, received well and shared widely by the community.

Thanks so much for the good design and the good discussions! I think the online workshop was a big success because of your structure too.

For our series of publications, Ay Mey coordinated the complete creative process. She turned our basic idea for a newspaper into a beautiful publication that told our story and managed the project with oversight. We love working with her as she couples great story-telling skills with a hands-on, getting things done mentality.
We have been working with Ay Mey for many years with great pleasure. This has everything to do with the open and honest way in which she communicates, her focused dedication and optimistic curiosity. She closely understands the mission and vision of our artist collective and knows exactly how to articulate the core of our organization.

In a hands-on online session Ay Mey helped us rethink our team meetings and our work processes in a way that made it possible for us to not only start solving the problems that Covid19 restrictions posed, but also making our virtual collaboration more effective and inspiring in general.
