"From the comments we received, everyone thoroughly enjoyed Verity's contribution as MC, especially the humour she brought to the occasion. It is always pleasing to have laughter at what can sometimes be a very serious AGM. Great MC."

Steve Joske, Executive Director, Australian Red Cross.


"Better than excellent, because just 'excellent' doesn't do Verity justice. She was the consummate professional and helped make the event a great success. She was a delight to work with and added tremendous value to the occasion through her professional, yet relaxed and friendly manner with the audience."

Ian Johnson, Executive Services Manager, Tourism W.A.
