Glasgow 2014 was completely amazing and also, probably my favourite event to work on. Thank you so much for all your work. You were fantastic, along with Brian and made our job very easy. You guys did a great job delivering all of the content and getting the crowd vocal when needed. I hope we work together again. Will keep you posted on anything that comes up. Thank you again....

Just to say a huge thank you for doing such a great job at our Queens Baton Relay evening celebration event. We’ve had nothing but excellent feedback and the weather certainly helped us too. We’ll be back in touch with any other community events or awards we may be able to get you involved with.

Outward Bound Trust

Martin Davidson - Scottish Director

Thank you very much for your support of and contribution to The Outward Bound Trust in Scotland Awards Dinner. It was fantastic to have you with us and you added a real sparkle to the evening. I really appreciate you giving up your time to be with us to help celebrate the achievements of our young people and to recognise the support of many of our donors – thank you. The words you shared in presenting the Awards to Joshua and Jamie were spot on and thank you for taking the time to prepare so thoroughly.

University of Edinburgh

Ranald Leask – Press officer

Alison worked with the University of Edinburgh as part of a special honorary degree show, during which the achievements of several top sportsmen and women, including Sir Steve Redgrave and Susie Wolff, were recognised. In front of an audience of over 1,000 people, Alison interviewed the recipients in a professional and engaging manner. Her knowledge of the recipients and their careers was obvious and her ability to put each of them at their ease and elicit interesting and amusing answers was a great example of skilled interviewing. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alison for similar work, where a confident, personable and thoroughly professional approach are key requirements.
