NZ Breakers 2018-19 Season
Jo was the Hype MC for our 2018-19 SKYCITY Breakers season and was the consummate professional throughout. Jo was innovative, enthusiastic and had a great critical eye for how to improve the entire event experience. In the face of technical sound issues Jo was calm and methodical, she even liaised directly with our suppliers to ensure that we were able to work out a fix. Jo really shone at our intimate season launch and awards night events where she would interact with our guests and improvise to engage the crowd.
