  • “We have worked with Jessica for two major events in the last 12 months, as our MC
    for an in-person conference in Perth and more recently as our MC for a virtual conference involving speakers from all over the world. In both scenarios, Jessica was responsive, adaptable, a natural with technology, proactive and highly professional. She was creative, full of humour when appropriate, and brought the best out of our speakers by making them feel supported. Above all, she made us look good!! We would highly recommend Jessica as an MC, and would not hesitate to engage her as an MC for any of our events in the future.”
