“We were really impressed with Emma - she was really thorough. Very well prepared and professional. Emma was punctual throughout and really lovely to deal with. Nothing diva-ish about her - she is warm, personable, approachable and 'normal'. I would absolutely recommend her to others and would be glad to work with her again”. Association of Event Organisers

“Emma's combination of in-depth business knowledge and interviewing skills created the perfect foundation for our event. She questioned our panel in a skilful manner which helped to articulate our key messages, while bringing a sense of warmth and good humour to the proceedings. Emma is modern, dynamic moderator and one that we will certainly use again”  Henk Potts, Director. Barclays, Wealth and Investment Management.

“Emma hosted the WealthBriefing European Awards 2015 at the Guildhall before an elite audience drawn from the City of London’s financial community. The event, venue and audience required a host with fathomless composure, assured presence, calm determination and supreme adaptability. Emma offered these qualities in abundance and her nerveless performance was a major contributor to the evening’s success."  The Beehive Partnership
