Well done and thank you. You engaged brilliantly with everyone, the students, staff and VIPs. I do hope there is opportunity for our paths to cross again in this way. I am congratulating myself on bringing you in for this event, I knew you would make all the difference.

The Croydon Secondary Pupils' Awards Ceremony is an annual event held to celebrate the success of students in the borough.  This prestigious event is held in the impressive Concert Hall of the Fairfield Halls.  This year, for the first time, we decided we would like a compere for the evening and  Lee kindly offered to host the event for us.  It was a wonderful evening - many compliments were received - many comments saying that they thought it was the best one ever -  and this was largely due to Lee's marvellous "compering" - he held the evening together wonderfully with a very easy, entertaining style.  He was invaluable in the lead-up to the event too.  Without a doubt we will be asking him for next year!

I have been fortunate enough over the past few years to work with Lee and to co-host or to attend events which he has managed. Highly organised, responsible and efficient, Lee has a welcoming, all-inclusive manner and a great sense of fun – he genuinely seems to love what he does and this enthusiasm is contagious.  Undaunted by a heavy work schedule, Lee has great energy and commitment. A professional first and foremost, Lee will ensure that all the ground work has been done before an event so that on the night he can be focused, relaxed and confident, and inspire confidence.

Thank you sooooo much for yesterday, I actually think the event could have fallen apart completely if we didn’t have you there, as always you brought an air of professionalism to the proceedings, and I think it was much needed in this case!  I look forward to working with you again soon.

I have worked with Lee for 9 years and over that time have developed a high regard for his organisational skills, vision and ability to pull together different groups to achieve a common aim across a wide variety of events. He is also a fantastic front of house MC who I would unreservedly recommend.

It has been a pleasure working with Lee - he is a complete professional both as an event organiser and as a compere. He appears to be devoid of stress and manages to complete in-time, on-time...every time.

I worked with Lee for the past three years on the Jack Petchey 'Glee Club Challenge' at the 02. Not only was he extremely efficient,driven and organised but has wonderful people-skills, and managed to make the creative team feel at ease, and supported at all times. The event was a pleasure to be involved with due to his passion and his ability to motivate . I can highly recommend him and hope to work with him again in the future

I have always found Lee to be superb at all aspects of Event managing from original concept to final product. Fab people skills and a very professional approach to every detail.

I learnt a lot from Lee when working with him, he showed such commitment and dedication to his role and he helped me to have the same passion in the role I was doing too. I would say working with Lee, he helped me to understand that organisation is key to the execution of any event. An extremely talented event organiser and a great ambassador. It was a real privilege to work with Lee.
