  • We had Vanessa as the MC for our charity gala ball in April 2017.

    Vanessa was very professional and well-prepared for the evening. Vanessa demonstrated her ability to adapt to the changing environment in the room well, responding to challenges with speed and poise. We thank Vanessa for her professionalism and support of Ronald McDonald House Canberra.

  • Vanessa brings to an event and indeed any piece of communication, a freshness and an enormous sense of knowing.

    Her ability to research the subject matter and contribute to an organisation’s needs, whether it is to MC an event or to be the anchor for a video segment, her professionalism and skilled execution is of the highest standard.

  • Vanessa brings to an event and indeed any piece of communication, a freshness and an enormous sense of knowing.

    You excelled in the role of Host/MC. It was a very full program with a challenging timeline and a very ‘active’ audience. We greatly value and appreciate your skills to ensure the evening ran as smoothly as possible, displaying a warmth and empathy with everyone. Your personal presence and professionalism for the role were admired by all.

  • I had the pleasure of working with Vanessa in co-hosting the 2012 Australian Service Excellence Awards at Crown Palladium, Melbourne. Vanessa is a professional and experienced speaker who was able to keep our audience of 800 people engaged over the course of the night. Vanessa was humourous, entertaining and brought prestige to the event. She kept the night smooth and seamless for our guests, helping contribute to the success of a fantastic, well-received event. I would like to thank Vanessa for her professional approach, and would recommend her work to anyone looking to engage a polished speaker or presenter for a large event.
