You really made the whole evening such a great success - from the first contact you were responsive, a pleasure to deal with, and your ideas on how to bring the event to life were invaluable ... keep reading, as well as hilariously funny! Everyone is raving about you and the event as a whole. I sincerely thank you for adding such value to what was a really important event. Thanks again, and I'll certainly be in touch soon for future events. Perpetual
Col did an outstanding job as MC at the MEA Industry Awards Night. He was a complete professional and flexible in adapting to the short notice changes in the program. Our guests loved his hilarious antidotes and laidback approach, I received numerous compliments throughout the evening praising Col's performance. He's a delight to work with.
Col went out of his way to make our experience an enjoyable and fun day for our End Of Year Function. His lively presentation was engaging and he was very brave facing a room full of women - but he soldiered on and did an exemplary job. Well done Col.
