Nicky related to our audience very well, they all praised how well she spoke and the message she conveyed was well received.
Nicky did a phenomenal job at conference this year, there was a lot that we wanted to deliver as part of the program and Nicky played an important role.
Everything went really well on Sunday and Nicky was fantastic as our M.C. The feedback from guests was also very positive about Nicky’s role. I hope there’s another occasion that I can work with Nicky on in the future.
I just want to pass on my thanks for having the opportunity of working with Nicky today at the MYER Jamie Oliver event. Nicky was an absolute pleasure to work with – so professional yet relaxed and outgoing! I think she loved it as well – a huge Jamie fan.
Just touching base in regards to Nicky's hosting role on Friday. She was a fabulous host and was very approachable. Nicky and Agnes had a really nice connection on stage and engaged well with the audience. The customers adored her, especially because she made time after each show to chat with the customers.
Thanks so much for your support in making Friday night so successful. Your expertise in polishing the rough ideas I had for how the evening would work were really appreciated. The evening would not have been to success it was without you.
Thank you for Saturday night, you did an absolutely fantastic job and we loved the way you interacted with the speakers and the entertainers! Very excited to announce that we made $52,000. We can hardly believe it! Plus on top of that a guest donated another $25000!
