“I have worked directly with Deb and Dbusiness for 2 years now with fantastic results. I went directly to Deb after being a participant at events Deb had organised for other businesses, having been on both sides of the fence it’s easy to see why Deb is so successful. My recent experiences have been fantastic because Deb listens, and spends a lot of time making sure she understands what you are trying to achieve. Great ideas, Deb’s resume allows her to bring innovative ideas and thinking at all stages of her event management. Finally, Deb has been involved personally at five (5) events she has organised for us over the last 2 years to ensure they run smoothly, are kept on time and importantly we have discussed ways to get better next time. Our Weber Genesis product launch in Melbourne in 2017 is still talked about as being the best one ever – thanks Deb.”

“In 2017, Walkerville Council engaged Dbusiness to revitalise and revamp its traditional Christmas event. Dbusiness – and Deb Budich in particular – provided flawless attention to detail and liaised on behalf of the Council with schools, businesses and community groups to ensure the event had a truly local flavour. The feedback we received from participants was excellent. Through Dbusiness, we were able to introduce a number of new elements that proved extremely popular. Council was able to secure far more competitive rates for services and event infrastructure than we would have achieved on our own – in other words, we got a lot bang for our buck! Dbusiness ensured the process was collaborative from start to finish and the end result reflected Council’s strategic objectives of promoting a ‘lively, local culture’. Since then, Council has engaged its first in-house event specialist, however the model created in 2017 will be utilised as a template for delivering an outstanding, inclusive and stress-free (for Council) event.”

“Just wanted to say a personal “thank you” to you for all your fantastic support and hard work. You are definitely the glue that holds us all together! Your professionalism and experience has helped us enormously in getting us to the high quality event we have been striving to achieve.
Deb, I am very thankful to Mark Aiston for referring you…otherwise I don’t think we would have been able to resurrect this event as quickly and seamlessly as we have. I appreciate your humour and always smiling face, which always puts me at complete ease….
You cannot retire….not until I do anyway….lol!
Anyway…looking forward to a debrief and lunch…at a very minimum! There are certainly things we need to do and consider to move forward onto bigger and better ;)
Kristen Hardy, Community & Relationships Manager
“Our Annual National Retail Conference is a BIG deal. We bring together our entire network of Retail Store leaders along with our supplier partners and key internal functional teams. Our goal is to Connect, Communicate and Celebrate. We respect our conference attendees and seek to deliver strong content while providing a unique and fun experience. This year we decided to return to our roots of Adelaide and as a proud South Australian family owned business we wanted to celebrate an additional goal, to ensure everyone visiting Adelaide left with a real sense of “Wow, what a place”.
For this reason we engaged Deb and Tracy from Dbusiness Events to assist us in organising and planning the logistics of this conference. Deb and Tracy were fantastic support and guides throughout the entire conference organisation process. They have a series powerful tools to ensure tasks are completed progressively so you stay in control and have the time to remain focussed on making sure everything works.
With the conference being in Adelaide we wanted our attendees to see and experience (even taste) some of Adelaide and South Australia’s greatest icons. For this reason the “Race Around Radelaide” concept evolved under the guidance of the DB team. It was designed to offer attendees the opportunity to actually experience and see the location they are visiting, while also allowing ongoing networking and team building connection. The Race received overwhelmingly positive feedback from all attendees. It was unique, engaging, eye opening and above all fun.
We would like to thank and readily recommend the Dbusiness Events team.”
Australian International Three Day Event
“dbusiness events have been managing the operations, hospitality and sponsorship & signage requirements for the Australian International Three Day Event for 4 years. The event is one of 6 in an international series and the only one held in the Southern Hemisphere, governed by the Federation Equestre Internationale. The competition is a qualifying event for the World Federation Games and/or Olympics. As such the event must deliver the highest level of governance and professionalism. dbusiness through it’s longevity with the event has an excellent understanding of the strict requirements and complexity of delivering such an event with a high level of professionalism. Events that are conducted externally bring with them a high degree of challenge across a broad spectrum of factors including from a risk, crowd control, road closures, permits and licensing restrictions, to name a few, and dbusiness take control of these factors reporting back to the Event Director and Board to ensure that all requirements are met.
