Tracey was brilliant! Thank you so much for recommending her. She was just perfect for our audience and came across so naturally and friendly. There was humour, she covered her life story, and referred back to Ipswich and Suffolk – very interesting but gracious. She handled the questions really well and didn’t rush off at the end when some of our members wanted to chat. A very successful evening.
