Client Comments for Verity James
Verity James travels from Western Australia Australia
- The contribution made by Verity as MC of 2006 Visitor Servicing Association Conference was absolutely superb. She was professional, open, relaxed, entertaining, related well to the audience, and was described by some delegates as the ‘highlight of the conference'. We will utilise her services again.
Meeting Masters Pty.Ltd
- From the comments we received, everyone thoroughly enjoyed Verity's contribution as MC, especially the humour she brought to the occasion. It is always pleasing to have laughter at what can sometimes be a very serious AGM. Great MC.
Australian Red Cross
- We just wanted to say a quick thank you for all your efforts last night. You added some real pizzazz to the evening. Your interaction with the audience and general attentiveness to their mood was handled with consummate professionalism and we're grateful your efforts helped us to run a such a smooth and successful event.
We're thrilled with the results of te auction and believe we have raised around $35K although last counts have not come in yet. We certainly won't hesitate to call on your assistance again for future events.
"Emma was a great help. She took our brief, understood what we were looking to achieve and suggested a range of speakers that was hard to select only one option from. She was always available when needed and made sure that all arrangements were in place once we selected our speaker. I wouldn't hesitate to deal with Emma and/or Saxton again (and in fact a number of colleagues are dealing with Saxton for current and ongoing needs)."
