Primary Sector Awards - April 2021

Highly recommend Sarah! Sarah MC’d our 500 seated awards dinner and ran the evening like clockwork. Professional, worked to the audience and ensured that she was meeting all of our requirements throughout the evening. Very easy to work with and we have had great feedback.
