I just wanted to say a huge thank you on behalf of the Music Producers Guild and myself for presenting last night’s awards. The Guild and the guests really recognise and appreciate your engagement in the awards. Personally I would like to thank you for the time and effort you put into developing the script and for giving the team confidence that the presentation of the awards is in safe hands!
Shaun did an amazing job and I’ve had some great feedback. Thanks again.
Shaun was a brilliant host; engaging, humorous and genuine. He was a pleasure to work with and up for trying everything we threw his way. We’ll certainly be using him again in the future.
Shaun compered our Christmas quiz and performed a short warm up of stand up ? he was very funny, engaging and a pleasure to work with. He read the room perfectly and pitched his humour just right.
