He was a real pleasure to work with. He asked all the right questions in the initial briefing call which was extremely refreshing. He was really engaged throughout the whole process and full of enthusiasm for the event. His experience as a presenter meant that he perfectly judged the mood of the room and managed the pace of the awards presentation accordingly.
