  1. Carlson Wagonlit UK Ltd

    Very pleased with Cathy, she was a great host for the evening. She took the time to work through the script pre-event and tailored it to suit the audience. Comments made on the evening about Cathy were very positive, she made the audience laugh and those sat on her table said she was great.

  2. Capita Health Partners

    Excellent – professional, supportive and delivered as expected.

  3. i-Movo

    Absolutely perfect, she really complimented our event. Cathy had clearly done lots of prep and gave a really in-depth introduction to the presentation section of our afternoon, then led Q&A with carefully thought out questions. Our audience seemed impressed not only with the choice of speaker but her understanding of the subject matter. She stayed afterwards and very kindly spoke to several of our guests and was genuinely interesting company.

    Thanks for your brilliant chairing of the three events and for being so patient with my emails! As you probably know, the debates are being hailed as the ‘best health hotel event ever!’ (Health Hotel has been going for about seven years). One of the many great comments was that the level of debate was on a par with Newsnight. Please take that as a compliment. I very much hope we’ll get to work with you again in the future.
