We needed a host for our EMEA event who understood the business issues and who would be comfortable on camera - Penny excelled on both counts. She brought value pre-event and when we went live on the day, we knew we were in safe hands – Penny made hosting a live virtual event look effortless. I’d highly recommend her.

Panel discussions with industry heavyweights

Penny was the perfect event host for our online event. She chaired panel discussions with industry heavyweights, conducted ‘fireside’ interviews with leaders of large businesses and helped the audience to feel included and heard. Her live TV skills and experience were invaluable, as was her ability to engage and enthuse a virtual audience.

Treading the tightrope between business detail and humanity

A massive thank you for conducting the leaders’ fireside interview at our annual conference. You did a great job and brought out the best in both Minette Batters (President, NFU) and Carolyn Fairbairn (DG, CBI) – treading the tightrope between business detail and humanity is no mean feat but you did it really well. The feedback was nothing but positive.
