Her extensive knowledge base combined with attention to detail results in as ability to draw out interesting angles on a variety of topics. She has the capability to quickly make those that she meets on or off air feel at ease, which ensures the best content from the talent that she is interviewing.Personally, her active interest in my thoughts on social media and my business resulted in a brilliant interview connecting current affairs to real organisational marketing issues that has since resulted in a number of valuable business contacts. It is clear that her ability to present on radio is not only a passion, but a natural talent that has been taken to another level through her dedication and drive” – Nicole Douglass – eNetwork Evolution
