“We were privileged to have Dee as the host for this year’s Skandia Team GBR British Sailing Team awards dinner, which, in such a landmark year for British sport, was a high profile occasion for all of our sailors, support team and key sponsors. She completely understood the tone we wished for from the evening, and took it all in her stride – she was entertaining, engaging and had a great rapport with our guests. I’d have no hesitation in considering Dee again for similar events.”
