“I watched Leanne emcee our special awards night for Professional Speakers Australia – PSA. Excellent job; very professional, very classy, and yet lots of fun. She brings a lot of heart to whatever she does. She was very good at tag teaming as well as doing impromptu pieces to make the evening flow. She is a delight to work with and a joy to watch on stage.” Lisa Mc-Innes Smith CSP CPAE

I don’t underestimate how much of a challenge it was working with a client who doesn’t want to leave anything to chance but also wants a day that’s high energy and good humour. You really made all of us look terrific and we’re extremely grateful.” ANZ
