  • I want to thank you for your work on the conference gala dinner as our master of ceremonies. As always, you were great to work with and kept all moving smoothly through our very busy evening. With 2200 delegates and 2 stages with multiple artists on each stage through the night, it ran extremely well. Your input through the planning process and your onsite adjustments including the local vocabulary, which was a very fun segment, all added to the success of the event. I look forward to working with you again.

No matter the pressure, Tony was always a calming influence. He made himself available to us throughout the event as we required. Tony was a pleasure to work with and once again comes highly recommend.
