Captain Kerryn, yes I know I said this a dozen times yesterday but ‘you are one of a kind’. Your overwhelming, powerful, controlled, loveable enthusiasm is so, so infectious it not only rubs off on the audience but also on the guest speakers. Because of you they start their presentation on such a high all because of the flow and energy you’ve created prior. You control the room at every moment, even when you make a mistake you still have the uncanny knack of getting past it and making it work or be funny. The vibe in the room all day was electrifying.
