Clare is an absolute star - she had done some home-work on the market and also made notes during dinner so that she could build an immediate rapport with her audience. She's funny, compelling and engaging.
Farmers Weekly [RBI]
Everyone has commented that you are the best presenter we have ever had and I cannot thank you enough for your contribution to the day.

Clare was an exceptional choice for our awards. She was warm, self-deprecating, quick-witted, and connected with the audience right from the start. Everyone was extremely impressed.

Clare was superb – great ad libs, read the mood of the audience well and looked after the sponsorship side smoothly. Clare was a great entertainer too.

Clare did really well. She was very approachable and met everyone before and after. Her intro to the awards went down very well; she was very professional, and was great controlling a rowdy element of the audience. Very well placed for the event.
Data Publishing Assocation
Clare was an absolute star. The team was initially hesitant in having Clare but she was a true professional and a thoroughly likeable 'star' - even for a subject matter that had no real connection to the host.
Clare Balding did a great job, very enthusiastic.Clare Balding was a very good MC. I liked her'I thought Clare Balding was a great host, by far the best one we have had at a National Sales Meeting.''Clare Balding was a brilliant host.' 'She was relevant, understood the personalities and subject and showed she was listening and taking it seriously''Claire was excellent and kept the energy up.'
She exceeded our objectives; she provided a thought provoking, insightful, energetic speech which predominately focused on the Olympic Games. She brought so many elements into her speech and related her personal insights back the audience. She skillfully brought back the emotions felt during the Olympics and Paralympics. The audience feedback was exceptionally high, and they stated she was every bit as impressive as they expected, if not higher then expected. They all thoroughly enjoyed listening to her very inspiring talk. The talk was relevant to the audience and engaged them all in different ways. She made a great effort to speak to everyone in the room after the speech and was very professional, approachable, welcoming and entertaining.The service provided by JLA was excellent. Everything ran smoothly, the communication was very good throughout the planning stage, the response and delivery times were excellent.

A note to say thank you for arranging for Clare Balding to come in to speak last night. Clare was a great speaker, funny, engaging and stayed longer to network with our clients. We have received some great feedback from our clients and the partners who attended last night. The book was also a great added extra.
Mayer Brown International
Clare met our objectives extremely well. Clare attended a briefing call and was available for a detailed brief on the day. Clare came up with the idea to conduct interviews with the winners on stage, rather than the usual acceptance speeches. This went down very well. Clare was an absolute pleasure to work with and extremely professional.

It’s a little later than planned, but I wanted to say how much we enjoyed Clare Balding’s contribution to our Annual Dinner last week. We were excited to have our first female speaker in 98 Dinners and were not disappointed. We asked our guests for feedback on the various aspects of the Dinner and Clare’s address was well received by everyone. Her promotion of women’s sport fits well with our endeavours to encourage more women into the automotive sector - and it was particularly pleasing that the other award later that evening also went to a woman. Almost as if we’d planned it! Many thanks for your help, Emily. How do we follow that next year?!
Delegate feedback on Clare was fantastic, she was an absolute pleasure and I would certainly recommend again. Her attitude is exactly what we hope all of our speakers will have – friendly, approachable, prepared and entertaining. An absolute delight and I hope to use her again!
