Vanessa White | Events Manager

Carol was a wonderful MC for our 2024 conference, she was personable, professional, and engaging. Carol made the effort to understand the themes of our conference in order to ask the fitting questions. She kept our plenary sessions running smoothly and on time. We would definitely recommend Carol as MC for upcoming events, especially those that require someone well known, with a professional reputation.
