“A heartfelt thank you for your MCing brilliance at the AIM Management Excellence Awards. Your professionalism and energy really added to the evening and gave the formalities the polish they deserve.”

“Alice and Rick were just what we needed. They were a professional duo who were able to read the 650 member audience and meet the needs of the event organisers. Alice and Rick were able to bring humour and energy to the event, while also acknowledging when a more serious tone was required. Nothing was too difficult and they were able to quickly learn the run sheet, allowing the event to run smoothly on the evening.
Both were immaculately presented and arrived well in advance to familiarise themselves with the venue. It was a pleasure working with the two of them, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for any public speaking events.”
– Danielle Lede, Executive Officer to the CEO, Department of the Chief Minister, Northern Territory Government

Alice’s dedication as MC assisted greatly to ensure the evening’s proceedings were carried out with humour, punctuality, quick wittiness and above all grace and professionalism.
Alice can be relied upon to be thoroughly prepared and well versed with a subject matter and is particularly competent in ad-libbing when and if necessary. Working with Alice is always a pleasure and the Foundation wishes her every success for her future.”
– Vicky Hunt , Chairman, Government House Foundation of the NT
“Alice was the perfect choice for the role of roving MC for the 2014 NT Skills, Employment & Careers Expo held at the Darwin Convention Centre.
A big event, which attracted close to 100 Exhibitors and over 3000 attendees, Alice was very professional, engaging and approachable. She made everyone feel at ease as she worked her way around the crowd and drew attendee’s attention to the various exhibits. We had never engaged an MC for the Expo before but will be doing so from now on. Alice certainly added to the atmosphere and gave the Expo a friendly face.”
