What can I say? Over a 20 year corporate career and the innumerable conferences/dinners/events that that has involved, I have observed , and occasionally endured (!) many MCs/motivational speakers ....
You, for us today, were the absolute tops in my experience! Kerri, you were just fantastic . Your energy, passion and presence combined with your very confidant style and ability to relate to an audience (& ours is not always an easy one!) and to get them engaged both through those skills and what you spoke about was simply outstanding, and on behalf of all of all at Womensport NSW, a HUGE thank you!

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Stewart House I would like to thank you for, not only stepping into the role for Gala Ball MC at the last hour, but for providing extremely professional, often amusing and sensitive links to our evening program.
We look forward to working with you in 2008 and beyond.

I didn’t get a chance to see you again at the end of the evening on Tuesday, but I wanted to say thank you so much. You did an amazing job and many people have commented to me how you made the night interesting by asking such great questions.
You impressed many people and you certainly impressed the NSW Sports Federation… I would love to work with you again next year, so I hope you enjoyed the job!

Thank you so much for the great job you did for our dinner for Ovarian Cancer Research last night. It was a delight to have you there. You made everyone welcome, and managed the night tremendously well. I have received nothing but praise for the job you did. Three words seem to be common in the comments I have received - "Excellent" & "Absolutely Fantastic". You did everything we asked and more, you certainly made my job easy on the night. Thanks again.

“As such a successful athlete and a natural communicator, it was a simple choice for us to adopt Kerri as the ambassador of our Australian Tour. Kerri has been involved in all aspects from the development of sponsor ship and marketing packages to the commentary on the television broadcasts.
Kerri proved to be the secret weapon whilst negotiating with sponsors, always managing to impress; her involvement in these sales pitches was recognised by all as priceless.
Once all sponsor negotiations were finalised, Kerri then assumed the role as MC for all media launches and conferences. She is a rare talent who is interesting, humorous and succinct. The media could not get enough of her...”
Andrew Fraser - Tour Director
"On behalf of ICEE – International Centre for Eyecare and Education, I would like to extend our sincere thanks for your kind efforts in being an MC for our Valentine’s Day Gala Dinner.
Kerri we have had tremendous feedback regarding your involvement on the night in particular the ability in which yourself and Peter were confidently able to work with each other hosting the evening and our guests.
We were absolutely delighted with the dinner and felt the night was an outstanding success. We are thrilled to say that we raised just on $20,000. Your kind and generous support contributed greatly to a success evening."
