What Clients Say:
“Jacinta did a fantastic job as MC of the 2015 Talent Unleashed Awards. A true professional, Jacinta was very well received by our audience and kept the event running effortlessly to a very tight schedule. Jacinta did a great job entertaining our guests and engaging with our other presenters – particularly given the tricky task of managing the arrival of Sir Richard Branson and his on stage antics! We really appreciated Jacinta’s poise and true professionalism, which has certainly contributed to making the event the success it was.”
