"I will be eternally grateful to you for hosting HOSPACE 2016 so fabulously. You were so easy to work with and took everything in your stride with a smile on your face. Your transition from 'daytime professional host' to the 'smooth MC' at the Gala Dinner was seamless and you carried off both roles with aplomb. Your humour and charm along with your good looks will ensure we invite you back year after year!" - Jane Pendlebury, Chief Executive, HOSPA

This year with the added excitement of the attendance of Her Majesty The Queen you still kept events flowing effortlessly and with such a friendly and warm tone. I can think of no-one who represents hospitality better and we are deeply indebted to you." Alastair Storey Chairman - Gold Service Scholarship.
