The contribution made by Verity as MC/facilitator of 2006 Visitor Servicing Association Conference was absolutely superb. She was professional, open, relaxed, entertaining, related well to the audience, and was described by some delegates as the ‘highlight of the conference’. We will utilise her services again.

From the comments we received, everyone thoroughly enjoyed Verity’s contribution as MC, especially the humour she brought to the occasion. It is always pleasing to have laughter at what can sometimes be a very serious AGM. Great MC.
-Australian Red Cross
Better than excellent, because just ‘excellent’ doesn’t do Verity justice. She was the consummate professional and helped make the event a great success. She was a delight to work with and added tremendous value to the occasion through her professional, yet relaxed and friendly manner with the audience.
