Domain Principal Group

Prior to event, Liz showed a genuine interest in the event and was thorough in working through the script and briefing document.  On the night she engaged with the audience with a perfect balance of humour and formality of the event.  Liz also connected with the audience through personal stories of her experience with Nurses (who were the focus of the event.)  Liz took the time during the course of the night to talk to guests and have selfies (even giving the crowd tips on the perfect selfie.) Liz was outstanding and I would highly recommend.
