“We were really impressed with Emma - she was really thorough and that was reassuring for us. It was a nice touch that she wanted to know in detail about the speakers and content in advance and that she contributed to the script - it felt as if she cared for our event and wanted it to be a success for us. Emma had good ideas too - for instance, she suggested speaking to speakers ahead of their sessions on the day too, so there were no pitfalls. Very well prepared and professional.
Emma was punctual throughout the event 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”.

“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. We are delighted to have secured her services again for 2017”
Nicholas Boole, The Beehive Partnership.
“Emma was the consummate professional at our recent Structural Steel Design Awards event. Calm, confident and able to control proceedings throughout, Emma was all you would expect of a knowledgeable journalist, broadcaster and experienced host. Yet she also took time after the formal proceedings to talk to and have photos with our guests, showing a genuine interest in their work. Repeat business is a good indication of client satisfaction - this was the fourth consecutive year that Emma has hosted our awards and we’ll certainly be considering Emma again for our 2017 event.”
