“Thanks a million for your participation in Nu Skin LIVE. You truly took our event to the level we wanted, and we are all very happy about the results. It was a real pleasure working with you, and I hope we will have an opportunity to do so again on another occasion.” - Veronica Jensen, Events Manager
"It was a true pleasure to spend a few days with you and even if I knew that we were in good hands, to witness how you controlled the flow of the event was really impressive!! Multitasking on steroids... The whole team loved working with you and we have also received so many positive messages from our Brand Representatives. So, we will definitely stay on touch for future events."
"Emma - huge thanks from all of us for being our World Congress MC! You were a most charming, excellent host. We are so glad you were part of our best World Congress and you contributed to make that happen as MC plays such an important part. We certainly will have you in mind for our future events and I am sure many others too."
“Emma was the consummate professional at our recent Structural Steel Design Awards event. Calm, confident and able to control proceedings throughout, Emma was all you would expect of a knowledgeable journalist, broadcaster and experienced host. Yet she also took time after the formal proceedings to talk to and have photos with our guests, showing a genuine interest in their work. Repeat business is a good indication of client satisfaction - this was the fourth consecutive year that Emma has hosted our awards and we’ll certainly be considering Emma again for our 2017 event.”
“We were really impressed with Emma - she was really thorough and that was reassuring for us. It was a nice touch that she wanted to know in detail about the speakers and content in advance and that she contributed to the script - it felt as if she cared for our event and wanted it to be a success for us. Emma had good ideas too - for instance, she suggested speaking to speakers ahead of their sessions on the day too, so there were no pitfalls. Very well prepared and professional. Emma was punctual throughout the event and really lovely to deal with. Nothing diva-ish about her - she is warm, personable, approachable and 'normal'. I would absolutely recommend her to others and would be glad to work with her again”.
“Emma hosted the WealthBriefing European Awards 2015 at the Guildhall before an elite audience drawn from the City of London’s financial community. The event, venue and audience required a host with fathomless composure, assured presence, calm determination and supreme adaptability. Emma offered these qualities in abundance and her nerveless performance was a major contributor to the evening’s success. We are delighted to have secured her services again for 2017”
