Thank you very much for your time and effort in making a valuable contribution to our Commercial training event on Friday, at Highbrook.

Your presentation was informative, relevant and extremely helpful to our salespeople, from whom we have received very favourable feedback.  

We sincerely appreciate the effort you made to engage with our people and help them better understand some of the complexities in relation to earthquake-prone buildings and the legislation surrounding these particular issues.  

We are sharing your presentation with our teams, and on behalf of our sales managers and all of our commercial team, I offer our genuine thanks and appreciation.

Kind Regards

John Urlich, Commerical Manager - Barfoot and Thompson

Letter of Appreciation: Mainly Music

It is with grateful thanks that I write in appreciation of your generosity. Thank you for the gift of computers.

Your timing was impeccable. We had been faced with not knowing what to do about replacing some of the 'slowly dying' computers we had, especially as a funding application for this purpose had been declined.

The role of mainly music, and now mainly play, in New Zealand has been a long one; over 28 years. Originally founded in New Zealand, the organisation is not only throughout the country, but also in other parts of the world. Add to this, mainly music sessions are held in communities where families are vulnerable.

One such location is Wiri Women's Corrections Facility, where low security women have their babies with them. A weekly mainly music session helps these mothers grow in the skills of connection, along with educational and developmental engagement taking place. Not only are they battling lifetime issues, such as addiction and abuse, they struggle to connect with their child. The rtole of mainly music is to contribute to a secure relational foundation for baby.

You have contributed to this outcome as well as to the efficient operation of the Support Centre team.

Thank you so much again for your generosity.

Kind regards



Jo Hood, International CEO - Mainly Music

Letter of Appreciation: Guest Lecture of CIVIL 791 Construction Management (Mike Ellis)

On behalf of my students, I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to you for being a guest lecturer for CIVIL 791 on 02 May 2018.

From the feedback I have received, your guest lecture entitled "Practical Experience Sharing on NZS3910 in New Zealand" was a great success. My students benefit and inspired greatly from your practical experience on contract administration which definitely exposed them to the field practices. In this guest lecture, I truly appreciate the way you covered most topics in this subject area.

I hope that you will consider coming again in the future to give another informative guest lecture and wish you every success in your business.

"I just want to provide feedback on Blue Barn’s performance on the Rural Delineation Plan schemes. It was exceptionally great and all deliverables were well organised and easy to find all relevant information. Considering the significant amount of plans (25 routes) and the short timeframe their performance deserves an A+. I am really impressed with their performance."
