"Mark was a superb host, striking just the right balance between the seriousness of the evening (since the award entries covered everything from war in Syria to child sexual abuse) and engaging the audience through just the right amount of humour to keep the evening lively. During the on-stage interviews with award winners, Mark gained the trust of those he spoke to, getting them to open up about the challenges of telling some of the most difficult stories of the year. The Association for International Broadcasting has no hesitation in recommending Mark Barton - he will bring creativity, knowledge, understanding and sparkle to any event."- Simon Spanswick, CEO of Association for International Broadcasting
"It has been a pleasure to work with Mark Barton for the last 3 years, where he has moderated key sessions at the annual Zurich Global Risk Management Summit, a business meeting where Zurich's large global customers come together to learn about the latest issues on the risk agenda. Mark is a true professional, who is very easy to work with and he ensures a compelling dialogue on the day."- Tine Thorsen, Former Global Head of Market Development, Global Corporate, Zurich Insurance.
