Testimonials for Ricardo Goncalves

"I have admired Ricardo's work as a finance journalist and news presenter for many years, so when we were searching for an MC for our inaugural Import Export Industry Awards, Ricardo was our first choice. As MC, Ricardo delivered very insightful and relevant opening remarks that impressed our audience. He was quick-witted, extremely professional and it was so easy and enjoyable working with him. I can honestly say, his presence as MC made our event the success it was. I would absolutely hire Ricardo again and wish him only the best for his future."

I had the pleasure of working with Ricardo recently in his capacity as MC. Ricardo is professional, charismatic and warm. I strongly recommend Ricardo to anyone looking for an MC that is not only engaging with the audience, but is knowledgeable and has a full understanding of what the MC role entails.
