Host, Curry Life Awards

Cathy was wonderful. Cathy managed the event so professionally, simply amazing. She was the best host we had so far for our events. She is very approachable and easy to work with. Even though we had one conversation over the phone prior to the event and she was only given the script few hours before, she managed it so well, cannot find any fault. We had so much positive feedback. Please pass on our gratitude and appreciations to her.

We would love to work with her in the future.

 

Host, Engineering Awards Dinner

Everyone who attended the event agreed that you were an excellent host for the evening, pitching your remarks and insights at exactly the right level, and presenting the awards with the panache.

A note to thank you for your wonderful chairing of the conference. Your chairing was excellent, and we very much valued your thoughtful approach and poignant questioning.
