Sami was extremely co-operative and accommodating. Nothing was a bother for her and she more than fulfilled our event expectations. We would love to work with Sami again in the future should ... keep reading the need arise. Rothesay Durali International (RDI)
"Sami Lukis has been MC for the Emerald Ball for over 15 years and each year she brings something unique and exciting to the event! Her stage presence is commanding no matter how big or small the audience is and she has a natural ability to engage with guests at all levels. Sami is a professional operator who is easy going, spontaneous and entertaining but simultaneously is articulate, astute and always comitted to in delivering a first class event. Sami's down to earth nature, brilliant sense of humour and professionalism make her an absolute pleasure to work with!"
"Sami is the ultimate MC! She has hosted a number of fundraising galas for Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital Foundation and each time she commands the room with style, class and a great sense of humour. Whether it's a room of 800 guests or 200, she is extremely professional, quick-on-her-feet and unflappable. She relates well to all guests no matter what their background - medical, corporate, political, hospital patients or just your average person-on-the-street. Best of all, Sami is an utter delight to work with. As the organiser of these events, I know that when Sami is on stage, I have nothing to worry about!"
You are the very best MC I have witnessed in many years of involvement in charity gala dinners. Thank you. This year, the event was extra special as it was a celebration of the hospital’s 150th anniversary. Thanks to you, our guests were made more aware of the vital role the hospital has played in the history of Brisbane as well as the role it has played in their own personal lives. You single-handedly managed to bring the room together when needed to focus on the cause and you did so with humor and style.
