  1. e-Factor (for RBS)

    Our guests absolutely loved Steph. She was so lovely and down to earth, very funny and interesting to listen to. I am also really grateful she took the time to speak to our guests before and after her presentation. It was a great launch and really set the bar for the events for our Inspiring Women project during the next year. Hopefully we will be able to have Steph back when the project is coming to a close which will nicely round up things.

  2. NCFE

    Steph was absolutely excellent, and just delightful!

  3. Chemical Industries Association

    I just wanted to let you know that Steph was fantastic as our co-host at the CIA Awards last Thursday. She was extremely down-to-earth and charming and had a brilliant rapport with the guests … She was by far, one of the best presenters we have had at the awards.

  4. Carlson Wagonlit

    She was fantastic – so professional and she really bought a lot of value to our event.

  5. Nuclear Institute

    (Speaking after dinner)… Monday night was a big success and Steph did a fantastic job, the client was really pleased. She was fresh, energetic and upbeat and it was especially nice that she joined guests for a drink in the welcome reception and also sat with them for dinner. Steph was excellent and met the client’s objectives.

  6. Findlay Media (Best Factory Awards)

    Steph was absolutely perfect for our event. Her manufacturing background meant she was able to connect to the audience and her easy going manner and fun personality really shone through. Her anecdotes and ad-libs were very entertaining and she got the balance between keeping the awards event formal yet lighthearted at the same time just right.

  7. CESA Ltd

    She took the brief well and was a warm, personable host for our event and an excellent conference facilitator. Great interaction and her style endeared her to our audience of MD’s and CEO’s. She added value to the event from her business and professional knowledge and experience.

  8. Amanda Rayner Images

    Steph of course delivered a professional job as host but she did more than was expected. She was mixing and mingling at the pre-Awards and during dinner went round to tables (of which there were 56) to talk to guests and finalists. She posed for ‘selfies’ and only left when everyone who wanted to speak to her had been able to do so. As far as her actual performance was concerned, as one guest said. ‘Steph McGovern was amazing’. Indeed she was; she kept things flowing beautifully, got the audience cheering and whooping but also got their silence when necessary. She worked from autocue but gave it light, shade and passion. Here’s to the next time!

  9. The Diversity Group

    Steph really engaged with the audience, and all feedback from guests was extremely positive. Many expressed their delight in the way Steph portrayed the inclusion message. Steph went the extra mile to ensure the audience felt a part of the event.

  10. The Chartered Surveyors Company

    Steph had been highly recommended to us by a number of people and I fully understand their enthusiasm. Her style was warm and friendly and the collective hugs certainly got us off to a great start. I received many positive comments during the evening and this has continued over the weekend from entrants and sponsors alike. The evening was a great success, which is in no small measure thanks to Steph’s significant contribution.

  11. Transport Times

    I cannot recommend Steph highly enough! She is outstanding and the best compere we’ve ever had.

  12. Morris & Co.

    She was very positive. She did everything that was required, talked to the judges, students and members of the team. Featured in photographs, had a go at welding, was involved in the judging process and gave a speech. The audience enjoyed talking to Steph and very much enjoyed listening to her speech at the end of the event.

  13. Sage UK

    It was great to have Steph doing a seminar session on our stand during Accountex. She was great – really down to earth, friendly and had our visitors filling our entire stand with her talk. Very impressed.

  14. RICS

    Fantastic – well worth the money and I really feel like she was engaged in the event. She chaired, interviewed and even commented herself on the content and it felt like she had a real vested interest… She did a fab job and really helped elevate the event – would definitely use her again!

  15. Out There Events

    Fantastic as always. She added a huge amount of energy to the event and helped create a wonderful atmosphere for the evening. She is professional but fun which is a perfect mix.

  16. Association of Colleges

    Excellent. Steph’s knowledge and passion for the sector really made a fantastic contribution to our conference, and the feedback we’ve received from our delegates so far really picks up on this. I also really appreciated her flexibility with being able to accommodate the later finish on the Tuesday.

  17. Mindful Education

    Congratulations Steph on a wonderful job hosting the Association of Colleges Annual Conference! I really enjoyed how you spoke up for the sector in the key notes in particular. Thank you.

  18. British Gyspum Technical Academy

    Steph gave an excellent talk around skills / World Skills competitions and is an all-round top presenter, down to earth who engages throughout with the audience. Taking time to get round to talk to as many people as she could was extremely evident on the day and all of our guests have said what a great memorable day was had by everyone.

  19. Brokerbility Ltd

    Steph was extremely well received. She showed good knowledge of the subject matter and displayed great control of the event.

  20. Cohesion

    Steph was really easy to work with. The audience loved her – glamorous but down to earth and could control the audience of mainly men. She interacted well with the audience and seemed genuinely interested in the team and the event. I look forward to working with her again.
