Martha was a great host and we have received some excellent feedback on how well the whole AGM went. We would certainly be more than happy to work with Martha again, she was extremely professional and also very friendly towards myself and my team.


Martha was excellent and the audience really enjoyed it.


I am writing to express my sincere thanks for chairing our human rights debate earlier this week. Feedback from attendees has indicated that they found this to be a hugely enjoyable, helpful and mature debate: due in no small part to your excellent chairing.


Thank you for participating in the Heritage Question Time event…it was a fantastic evening… You were quite wonderful! I am new to that sort of occasion and can only admire how skilfully you managed the event, keeping the debate engaging and to time ? not an easy task with a group of people with a lot to say!…Thank you once again for being such a professional and for your advice and guidance about these future event.
