Testimonials for Beverley O'Connor

By far the best MC experience I've ever had. Beverley was unbelievably good to deal with. Very patient during technical hitches that made sound check drag on. Very professional, and really bought a lot of her own personality to the gig. Took the time to move around the room during meal breaks an talk to guests, and then integrate their stories into her presentation. After the formalities were over she stayed around for ages, even hitting the dance floor with guests. She was a huge hit!
