I can’t praise Hazel highly enough for her charming, focused and highly professional approach; supporting and motivating everyone on stage and also behind the scenes... I doubt that the events would have been so engaging and enjoyable without her commitment and support. Entertaining and training 15,000 people over a two day period was no mean feat – and her presenting talents, phenomenal sporting knowledge and passion for the volunteers and the Games played such a massive part in our success. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with and I hope we get to work with her again soon. There have been so many positive comments from staff, volunteers and stakeholders about Hazel’s involvement and we were delighted she was able to join us for our events.

You made it all look easy. Not only did you deliver the show as written, you tweaked, embellished, personalised and generally improved every part of the script and threw yourself into the spirit of things…….. Your chemistry with our various guests and most importantly the audience, was great to see, and I know from our backstage chats you kept trying to make the show better, despite a tiring schedule.
She was the best host we'd ever seen. The perfect blend of humour, seriousness and professionalism. We also loved the fact that she was so approachable as well.

Just a quick not to say a huge thank you for hosting CYMA in such magnificent style – the room was buzzing afterwards with everyone I talked to singing your praises – the best ever! Amazing, fantastic and I’ll stop there to save your blushes.
The evening was a great success - mainly because you got the best out of the guests…you somehow get gently under the skin and get us to the real person versus the external celebrity persona. Pleasure to watch and experience.
The Golf Business Forum at St Andrews was proud to welcome you…. You are the ultimate professional and we really appreciated the amount of preparation and research you had done to stimulate a realistic debate. It was refreshing that you were not afraid of controversy and drilling down on the topics that really mattered, moving effortlessly from anecdotal comment, strategic business issues, to interaction with the international delegates in the audience. Your style and experience was first class and fitted perfectly with our agenda.
A smashing venue and marvellous to hear Hazel recount her life experiences as a top notch sporting presenter!
It was a lovely evening and Hazel was enthralling
...it was great to hear Hazel Irvine speak as it brought back wonderful memories of the golden summer that we had in 2012
Not only did we enjoy the discussion but I particularly value the way that Hazel engaged with my clients and guests throughout the night.
I wanted to pass on my full gratitude for all your tireless work both prior and during our Conference... It was a pleasure to work alongside you once again – you make the whole thing actually work.

There were too many highlights to list them all, but I thought Hazel Irvine was outstanding in compering and linking the sessions – more than this, she has an empathy with sport and those involved and her “links” were as valid as many of the Keynote speeches... she was professionalism personified, with incredible insight.
Performance Director, British Skeleton
You have been a consistent figure at our event for the past eight years and are considered a fully fledged member of the team... Your preparations and conference summations are worthy of an elite athlete...
