What the Clients Say:
Fi Glover provided an opening speech and hosted The London and South East Regional Awards for The British Council for Offices. Feedback has been very positive, particularly comments regarding her beautiful voice and impressive command of the room. Her intro speech was compelling, appropriate and enjoyable and her pace and pitch during the actual awards ensured she kept the audience?s attention throughout. Fi was also friendly and straightforward to work with, and made time to be thoroughly briefed and prepared before the event and engage with the client over lunch. Many thanks for your help and we?ll be recommending her for other events. - THE BRITISH COUNCIL FOR OFFICES LONDON AND SOUTH EAST REGIONAL AWARDS
I wanted to extend my thanks for Fi again, for her wonderful Q&A hosting last night. It was amongst the liveliest post-screening Q&A’s I've ever seen which is exactly what we'd hoped for from this. Do pass on our deep gratitude to her for so brilliantly bringing it all together.- Sky Arts Drama Premier Screening
