Darryl Buston, Counties Racing Club

Roz has worked with us on 2 National Conferences and we would highly recommend her as both an MC and musician; in fact she has seamlessly merged both roles on one occasion. She has a genuine knack of reading the room and is agile to introduce humour as appropriate. We have found Roz to always be professional, authentic and engaging and focused on delivering a successful event – in short she is a class act!
