I think the function went very smoothly… and your sequins weren’t too blinding!”

“Phyllis did a fantastic job of hosting our annual Australian Magazine Awards on Friday October 31 2014. She engaged the audience of 300 leading magazine executives in a fun, professional and lively manner.

Her preparation in ensuring all areas of the event brief were delivered, was simply first class. The event was professional and well executed, all made much easier by the great energy and enthusiasm that Phyllis delivered on the day.

A job well done! I would highly recommend Phyllis for any MC work, she will deliver a fantastic experience and atmosphere for any event.”

“We had the pleasure of having Phyllis emcee our recent Australian Magazine Awards. Phyllis was a breeze to work with, always enthusiastic and brought her fun loving attitude to every encounter we had.

The Awards themselves went off without a hitch in her capable hands. She kept the event moving along swiftly whist still giving credit to those invited to stage. We look forward to working with her again!”
