"Having assembled the speakers for Leave and Remain we asked Daisy McAndrew to chair the meeting. We could not have asked for more.  Daisy made the evening!  With effortless charm and a twinkle in her eye, she kept the debate balanced, forthright, informative and yet fun. Daisy engaged and encouraged the audience and where necessary needled the panel. We - and our members - were delighted with the event and it was in no small part down to Daisy." The Royal Warrant Holders Association  - 2016
"Daisy agreed to chair what turned out to be by far our best client event in Pagefield's five year history. We decided to offer up an expert panel to discuss the consequences of the referendum result the morning after the night before. With an unexpected Brexit result, we have never had a better attended event - and with a lot of rather nervous business folk. Daisy took command of the room, set the perfect tone for what turned out to be a Brexit Brunch and prompted an expert (and opinionated) panel to give some serious insights into what our audience could expect to see in the weeks and months ahead. Client feedback about Daisy's performance was glowing and we were one very happy consultancy." Senior Partner & Founder, Pagefield Communications - 2016
"Daisy was a fantastic asset to our project astute, engaging and charismatic, she put everyone at ease with her warm and professional manner and hosted our Google Hangout faultlessly. I would not hesitate to work with her again."  HSBC - December 2015
