Alex and the I Need Helpers team offer passion, professionalism and dedication to the Festival and consistently exceed expectations in their service offering. They demonstrate an eagerness to represent the Festival and its ethos, which translates to the team of Staff & Volunteers recruited, briefed and managed under I Need Helpers.

The Volunteer Management System and service provided by INH was invaluable for the efficient management of Staff & Volunteers, allowing targeted and personalised information to view live rosters, manage personal details, access event information etc, plus receive timely comms from the Festival team – a fantastic resource.”

“Working with I Need Helpers has been incredibly valuable for both the St Kilda Festival and the St Kilda Film Festival. The I Need Helpers model is perfectly suited to both our events, and has taken all the hard work out of our volunteer programs. Working with Alex and his team is always a pleasure, and we have found them reliable, professional and always willing to go one step further to help. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend I Need Helpers to any other festival or event considering working with volunteers.”

“We simply could not run such a terrific Festival without our extended family of Festival Volunteers – they are integral to the success of our event operations and customer service.

It was a great decision by the Festival to engage I Need Helpers for Volunteer Management for their professionalism, smooth operations and terrific engagement initiatives. Their Volunteer Management System proved best suited to our event requirements.

A massive well done the INH team. An outstanding report and we applaud the way INH are engaging the volys and telling’ the untold story’ of the Festival.”

“We enlisted the help of ‘I Need Helpers’ for the Financial Education Summit 2011 – our biggest and most important event to date – and couldn’t have been happier with the result.

All of the volunteers were friendly, professional and enthusiastic and were able to assist in a range of tasks, including event set-up, registration, ushering, customer relations and much more. The additional benefit of having an on-site volunteer coordinator was absolutely invaluable during the event.

I would certainly recommend the services of I Need Helpers to any event organiser seeking a hassle-free way to enlist quality volunteers that are dependable and professional and I look forward to working with them again on future events.

A big thank you to Alex and his team for all their amazing work!”
Angie Tsoungarakis – Event Coordinator, 21st Century Education


“We couldn’t be more happy with the performance, professionalism and can-do nature of the volunteers from the I Need Helpers Team. Working with them from planning the event to execution on the day has been flawless, and this is to the credit of Alex Rixon-Booth, the director of I Need Helpers, and his meticulously thought out systems, rosters and communication.

Volunteers did everything from register attendees, ushering, and even microphone running during the conference – and they all did a fantastic job. We will absolutely be working with I Need Helpers on all of our future events, and look forward to growing our business relationship.

If you’re looking for quality volunteers for your next event look no further than I Need Helpers.”
Sean Qian, Event Manager, Crisp Entertainment

“The whole crew had a wonderful can-do attitude, nothing was an issue and they were all were extraordinary. The team really were the glue to hold us together on the outside activations – the speed they worked in unpacking the truck, setting up banners, inflatables, bumping out the MFOW, moving the promotional items between gates etc etc – all AMAZING!

The whole process with I Need Helpers was so smooth and we could not recommend the company more highly. “
 Cara Davey | Fundraising Events Manager, Breast Cancer Network Australia

“I used I Need Helpers for the Eureka Climb and it made organising event volunteers a dream! Usually finding volunteers can be a challenging task but this service made it easy and all volunteers were of a high quality. As most of the volunteers were event students they understood the fundamental goals of the event, feedback from competitors was very positive as they said all volunteers were helpful and exceptionally enthusiastic! I would highly recommend this service to companies organising both small and large events”

Tara Miller, Events and Marketing Coordinator, King Performance

“I Need Helpers played a very important role in the event planning and execution. We employed their volunteer coordinator service in which we met with Alex prior to the event to discuss our needs and saw these needs met on the day of the event. All volunteers on the day were very helpful and enthusiastic.

I would not hesitate in recommending Alex and I Need Helpers – thank you for all your help and professionalism.”
Catryn Zappia, Administration and Event Coordinator, Bone Health Foundation.
