"Susan was the host at the recent industry awards with IiRSM. I don’t think I have ever been to an awards dinner where the host has taken so much care to prepare her talk to ensure relevance to the organisation, the topic and the audience. 

So many hosts think it’s about them and Susan made it about the audience and enhancing their enjoyment and their celebration of hard work and achievement. This is a model of how hosting should work and was truly professional. Witnessing a master of her craft at work. Thank you Susan." 

Highly recommend 

Your absolute professionalism and dedication to the subject matter really did shine through and enhanced a very positive day and a great showcase of what this sector is capable of.

The feedback we have received so far has been absolutely fantastic, with so many people commenting on the outstanding job you did. Enthusiasm, guidance and positivity is what the event needed and you certainly bought an abundance of that!
