The brief for the MC was that it needed to be someone who was in tune with the latest developments in the country and who would be able to command the room.
From the onset of my interaction with Ms Qunta, she handled herself with the utmost professionalism, providing quotes, biographies and photographs on time. She attended briefing meetings diligently and interrogated the content of the briefing documents in order to ensure that she was well informed on the subject matter of the event. I received high praise for selecting her as the MC for the event and even received a personal mention from the CEO in the after-event review.
In conclusion, it is my greatest pleasure to give Ms Qunta my highest recommendation as an event MC. She will deliver the content that she has been briefed in an insightful and charming manner.
