We have produced this event for 5 years now and we had many comments on the night saying he was the best host to date. He did an excellent job at not only keeping the audience entertained and laughing all night, but also controlling the room so that it all ran perfectly and exactly to time…which, considering how much we had to get through, was a real skill! He had the perfect balance between keeping it fun and taking the awards seriously, absolutely ideal for this audience.Caroline Ellison, Client Services Director, Clear Presentations Ltd.
