MC for Airways Safety Conference 2022

28th June 2022 (Te Pae, Christchurch Conference Centre)

"When our MC was taken down by illness the day before our conference, we needed someone who could step in at short notice and help keep our day on track.  Ali was recommended to us and what a recommendation that was!  She made herself available to meet with us the afternoon before the event to run through the day. She had already done some research into our organisation and came prepared with a list of questions. 

On the day, Ali was professional, energetic and engaging. Not only was she a fantastic MC on stage, she was amazing at helping to support our speakers – a number of whom had also stepped in at short notice. 

We received great feedback on how professional our event was, and a lot of that can be attributed to Ali keeping us on track, ensuring seamless transitions between speakers and maintaining the energy in the room throughout the day". 

Jamie Gray
Head of Public Affairs & Communications


MC for NZCFI Conference 2019

11th - 12th September 2019 (Blenheim)

“Ali was terrific as both an MC and entertainer at our conference. I had many of our guests (delegates) comment to me how she welcomed them personally to conference during the very first morning tea on day 1. Top marks for that one particularly for our 2 Australian guests. 

They were truly moved by her performances on and off the stage. Ali’s light-hearted words came at just the right times which broke up what can be a very ‘dry’ subject matter event. 

 Her introductions of all our guest speakers and thanks to them were handled very professionally.”
