Our original emcee had a last-minute urgent engagement that meant we needed someone to step in at the last minute to fill the spot! Carrie rose to this challenge and in spite of being brought in just two days before the event, worked with our organisers to put together a dynamic, engaging and utterly professional script that both my team and myself thoroughly appreciated."
