"Thank you for providing us to such great talent and staff! Julia’s high energy, engaging personality, and smile kept each and every audience member enthralled by her interactive presentation with our San Jose TelePresence Center. As this was a live presentation, her ability to ad lib and interact with our person in San Jose, produced a seamless and perfect presentation each and every time. I have been in this industry for over 20 years as an Event Program Manager and can honestly say that I have never worked with a more professional, amazing, dynamic MC, hence being solidified by the metrics of audience attendance. There was not one instance of anyone getting up and leaving in the middle of the presentation, again due to Julia’s ability to capture each audience member. In addition, Dawn and Takara were the most professional and competent crowd gathers I have ever worked with. They captured and scanned an amazing amount of leads. Before I even had to ask, Dawn had summarized the leads for each day broken down by BVDC Theatre attendee, organic traffic, winners for each BVDC giveaway and passport winner of the day. Both Dawn and Takara were always once step ahead of me pre anticipating what I wanted and needed. All three ladies outdid themselves at ASIS making it an outstanding show. I look forward to working with you and the superior level of competency you provide with your staff."
