15 Jul Venue review, Gambaro Hotel, Brisbane

Gambaro Hotel – April 2017 Thanks to Marie Edwards, Iceberg Events & Travel we had the opportunity to view the Brisbane Restaurateurs latest venture, The Gambaro Hotel. Gambaro Seafood Restaurant Brisbane is an icon.  Located in Caxton Street at Paddington, is the restaurant that I aspired to be rich enough so that I could eat there on a regular basis!  It was the 80’s and Caxton Street was the place to be seen, and Gambaro’s was the restaurant to be seen at. Fast forward to 2017 and the Gambaro Hotel has emerged above the restaurant and is the ideal spot for guests attending events in and around this popular destination.  In the heart of the precinct is the famous Suncorp Stadium.  Caxton Street is still known for its great vibe around game time, particularly State of Origin, and is bustling with people when the super stars come to town. As a conference and event hotel, Gambaro Hotel is ideal for anyone wanting to make sure that the food is the top of the priority list.  The multi award winning restaurant is still on the top of all the “must do” lists, and as a family business, this care and attention to clients is evident in everything they produce.

Sally and I have been on the Fostering Executive Women Committee for the last 12 months. In that time I worked with Sally developing the Executive Conversation program for the year. Sally also worked on the FEW Mentor program and coordinated our annual gala dinner. Sally is an events coordinator/manager/creator extraordinaire. She is quick to understand what is required from the broadest concept to the minutest detail...and nothing is too much trouble. Sally makes it happen! and she makes it happen to meet - or indeed - exceed her clients expectations. Further, she is full of grace and humour in all she does. I have no hesitation in recommending Sally to lead/develop/manage your next event!

— Nothing is too much!

Sally Porteous is direct, efficient, honest and effective. I met her first as a university student, one of the postgrads it's a delight to work with - people who choose higher education for a purpose, know why they're there, and commit heartily yet critically to activities. Then I knew her as an Edgie - an ethical entrepreneur and part of a peer network in Brisbane and beyond which encourages and supports creative business that makes a difference. As was the case at the university, Sally embraced the opportunities we provided and in return added energy, confidence and verve to the group. Now I know her as an entrepreneurial peer, and I look forward to further conversations and perhaps even collaborations in the world of ethical commerce. I strongly recommend her services.

— Honest and Effective

Sally successfully produced the end of event concert for City Romp in 2008. In the space of 2 months, Sally single-handedly identified candidate acts, contacted their managers/agents to negotiate their involvement and meticulously planned all details of the concert, including the preparation of promotional notes to publicise the concert to the music press. On Romp day, Sally produced and stage-managed the concert to perfection, ensuring that the needs of all bands were met at that the tight running sheet was delivered with precision. The level of dedication and professionalism shown by Sally was exceptional and I would have no hesitation in recommending Sally as the producer and stage manager of any major concert.

— Dedication and Professionalism
