- Tracey is a very articulate and professional speaker. She was thorough in her preparation and very professional in her delivery.
- I have worked with Tracey on a previous occasion and have found her to be totally professional, yet approachable at the same time. She is articulate with a polished approach to what she does so well, yet funny and engaging at the same time. Under some trying circumstances and time constraints, Tracey worked with me to adjust the run sheet literally on the run to ensure that our event was successful. Very easy to work with and someone I would totally recommend for that special event.
