On behalf of Asialink and Asialink Business I would like to express my gratitude to you for being our Master of Ceremonies at this year’s Sir Edward Weary Dunlop Asialink Dinner. I appreciate the time and commitment you gave for this occasion and skill at keeping the pace of the event moving to keep the audience engaged. You were the perfect Master of Ceremonies. Your personal story on how you overcame gender/race bias was an inspiration for many young women in the room. We received excellent feedback from the audience including our supporters and partners and I know I speak for all of us here at Asialink in expressing our appreciation to you for making the event such a success. Once again, my profound thanks for your contribution and hope to work again with you in the future.
Mimi was a true professional. Friendly, on time, focussed - she did an outstanding job. I would definitely work with Mimi Kwa again.
Journalist, presenter and author, Ms Mimi Kwa, stepped up to the Keynote Speaker plate brilliantly at our recent Ruth Langley Luncheon attended by almost 300 guests. Mimi regaled the audience with her uplifting early career highlights as a young journalist working for the ABC, and later Channel 9. Her Keynote Address provided laughter, smiles and was truly inspirational as she shared moments of vulnerability that are familiar to us all. I am looking forward to reading Mimi’s recently released book, House of Kwa. Her honest and vivid storytelling promises to be a wonderful read over the summer months.

Mimi Kwa was highly professional and engaging as the CPA Virtual Congress MC this year. Her preparation was immaculate and in-depth and this showed in her delivery of the conference.
Mimi, as usual, was wonderful. She is a great MC/Facilitator, an incredible speaker and really takes charge of the conversation (which is perfect!).
Mimi Kwa hosted and MC'd our virtual Monash Tech Talk on Agile Nations: Recovering in a pandemic in 2020. All event participants and panelists have been giving glowing feedback about her energy, dynamism and grace in drawing out interesting points on an incredibly complex topic. Personally, I loved the way Mimi encouraged engagement and wove personal experiences into discussion about agility during a tumultuous time such as COVID – which is what being an MC is all about. Mimi's passion for change was infectious and she was incredibly flexible, friendly and easy to work with. Mimi - We learned so much from working with you and would love to do it again. We can't wait to work with you again in the future.
