    Matt was absolutely fantastic and did such a great job at managing to keep it up upbeat and entertaining even though we had no live audience. Was a pleasure to work with and would definitely use him again to host a live Ceremony.


    It means a great deal to the apprentices to have somebody young that they can relate to, such as Matt, involved as it really demonstrates the importance of their training and adds credibility to the entire event. The feedback we received on the night was extremely positive and the event would not have been possible without your support. Thank you especially for delivering our awards ceremony and keeping the mood light with your set.


    I speak on behalf of Thinkbox when I say that we were so happy with Matt, he really understood the brief, was professionally and friendly and great with the audience. Do please send through our thanks as well.
