Di curated our annual Summit with flare and class. In the lead up to the Summit she worked hard to understand the diverse audience and was able to bring the entire event together in a way that I can’t imagine anyone else doing. We were nervous about the flow of speakers and audience engagement, but Di took care of everything. She carefully thought through questions and research on each of our key speakers meant her delivery was poignant, engaging and entertaining. We have received so much positive feedback about the event and her incredible role as MC. What an absolute star!

Di - thank you for an excellent, totally professional and entertaining evening as our Master of Ceremonies. Received nothing but complements and congratulations on our decision to have you manage proceedings.
Di took our conference to the next level! She was dynamic, articulate and capitated the entire audience with her compassion and professionalism. She embraced the challenges of AV & nervous speakers, and mastered the facilitation of some very difficult panel discussions with ease. Di went above and beyond in preparing for our conference and her energetic contribution onsite lead to its success.
