Mark Judd - Manager of Energy Services at Mondo Power

"Mondo Power has engaged 'Events that Matter' a number of times over the last 2 years.  Events that Matter have been a key stakeholder in developing the approach to engage and promote our energy services in rural communities in Victoria.   As CEO, Denis Ginnivan has lead the organisation of town hall events, community project launches and other meetings always ensure "all is in place" and importantly with his connections ensuring appropriate rural press are engaged to fully promote the events.

Mondo Power have been highly satisfied with their professional work and easy going ‘rural’ way of working collaboratively with rural communities. We hope to work closely with them again soon on further events and projects which truly do matter!"



Matt Charles Jones - Totally Renewable Yackandandah

"Events that Matter have organised a range of significant community events for our community energy group, Totally Renewable Yackandandah. Denis and his team have provided a unique and compelling blend of passion, enthusiasm, tenacity and patience.  This has resulted in events that are inspiring, popular and deeply meaningful.  Moreover, Denis brings a heartfelt commitment to successful communities and relationships.  It has been, and will be, a real pleasure to work alongside Denis."


Mark McKenzie-McHarg - Yackandandah Chamber of Commerce

"The Yackandandah Chamber of Commerce used Denis from Events That Matter for the 'Back to Yack' street party in November 2016. This was a complex community event with music, food, a live national radio broadcast, logistics, and as always, a minefield of different opinions and ideas on how it should all be run.

Denis was the 'on-the-ground' person who pulled it all together for us... we got peace of mind because we knew he'd organise it all professionally and manage all the relationship issues at the same time. We'd recommend Denis as a lead event manager/ organiser any day."



Bryce Ives - Chief Facilitator, Horizon Scholarship Program and Heywire Regional Youth Summit

"Denis is committed, creative and hardworking. Through his work, Denis Ginnivan combines a great personality, business nous, political skills, management responsibility, community development skills and creative skills, alongside extensive practival knowledge in delivering meaningful and successful events."



GG - Musician

"Having Events That Matter organise and host the evening meant that everything ran very smoothly and on-time. Denis organised a sound engineer, seating, food and drinks, and played a big role in advertising the event. He also MC-ed, and made sure we stuck to schedule. Denis was also very professional in dealing with the finances for the evening, and developed a tally so we could clearly see the expenditures and revenue generated.

On top of that, Denis' role as an active member of the local community meant that the evening had a friendly, relaxed and fun atmosphere. I had a really great evening, and would definitely recommend Events That Matter to anyone organising a big occasion!"
