We appreciate your professionalism and good humour in somewhat adverse conditions. We have already received a great deal of positive feedback including one gentleman who described your performance as "a brilliant night of fun which had us weeping with laughter".

"I would like to thank you for the fantastic performance as Master of Ceremonies that you gave at our recent event, Geoff Bebb's Stepping Down Dinner, held on Saturday 13th June 1998. Your efforts in this position were greatly admired by myself along with Geoff and everyone else present on the night that I have spoken to. Personally I would like to thank you for the preparation that you made before the event as well as the ideas you shared with myself. I appreciated your ability to adapt to the agenda and mood of the night, all of which contributed to such a successful event." - Surpac Software International.
