We have had the pleasure of working with Nicky Styris at two events as an MC - a gala dinner for 400+ guests and an intimate special luncheon for 80. Nicky is incredibly professional to work with. She will read your notes and knows how to follow a brief. She will research your client, she will be aware of critical timings and key personnel - because of this thorough detailed preparation you will find her ready and able to front your event. Nicky will also ask questions of you if she needs clarification, ensuring she gets things just right. We have also used Nicky to interview key speakers, she has expertly drawn out the relevant information required to fulfil the brief/theme of the day. In addition Nicky is immaculately presented, on event day she can move and roll with changes if required but on top of all that Nicky is great fun to work with. We have really enjoyed working with Nicky and hope to have her host an event again.
