Quotes 02
"I invited Zoe to introduce a talk from Vint Cerf, one of the founding fathers of the internet. As he is a high-profile speaker, we required a host with a deep knowledge and experience of the tech sector. Zoe was fantastic throughout. She was well-prepared beforehand, completely profes-sional on-stage and a delight to work with off-stage. I would not hesitate to recommend her to host any live talk or panel discussion. I hope to see her at the Royal Institution again soon."

"Zoe was a consummate professional - our audience is very technical, but her experience in this field shone through, as she was able to explain all the technical language in the questions without batting an eyelid. She had the perfect balance of gravitas and fun, and her live broadcasting credentials meant she was able to cope with the complexities of multiple messages behind the scenes, ensure her own audio lines were correct, and keep the whole segment exactly on time."
