I just wanted to let you know that Steph McGovern 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. Even when the noise levels were creeping up a little, she managed to quieten them down with subtlety and humour. She even took time to personally go around the tables to congratulate the winners afterwards. She was by far, one of the best presenters we have had at the awards.

Just wanted to let you know how well last night went. 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.

Travel Exchange conference:She was fantastic – so professional and she really bought a lot of value to our event
(Speaking after dinner)...Yes 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."
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 adlibs were very entertaining and she got the balance between keeping the awards event formal yet light hearted at the same time just right.

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.
Steph was absolutely excellent, and just delightful!
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!

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.
The Diversity Group
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.
The Chartered Surveyors Company
All our objectives were met. The audience reaction was very positive. We have used Steph for the last 3 years for this event so the audience knows her well and she has a great rapport with them.
Chemical Industries Association
I cannot recommend Steph highly enough! She is outstanding and the best compere we've ever had.
No offence to other people we've had in the past, but no one has worked the room like Steph, we were so impressed.
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.

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. Thank you Steph
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!
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.

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.
Association of Colleges
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.
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 rememberable day was had by everyone. Many thanks for JLA's professionalism throughout the booking process , great job. Regards Dave

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