“Cally was by far the most thorough host I’ve ever worked with in terms of her preparation and research, and this is without a doubt what made the awards very individual, personalised and honest. She struck the perfect balance between professionalism and comedy, kept the audience entertained and engaged throughout and was incredibly warm and positive about the individual businesses and the awards themselves. But above all, Cally was down to earth, accommodating and just a downright lovely person – we couldn’t have asked for a better host!”– Cumbrian Tourism Awards

“Cally always delivers. She understands her audience (and the television business, which is a task in itself) and can be relied on to deliver smart, funny curation of even the most challenging events.” David, C21Media
