I would recommend Melissa highly
“Melissa was MC for me at a recent event and she did a fantastic job. The feedback was amazing. During the build-up to the event, Melissa was very professional, prepared, and organized. She ensured we were well set up. Melissa's technical knowledge of the platform used was also an added bonus as it gave me the extra confidence the event would be broadcast seamlessly. I would recommend Melissa highly and will use her services again to MC with no hesitation. Thank you Melissa”
