"From the very first phone call to Kris McCartney the bureau were extremely helpful and accommodating. Our engagement was a last minute request when a previously booked speaker from another agency fell ill. Kris was positive and gave me confidence she would identify and provide an appropriate speaker, given the tight time frames everything was organised quickly and professionally. I was very happy with the overall level of service and quality of presenter."
