Georgina McEncroe was our Master of Ceremonies for the BAA Christmas Lunch ...and did a fantastic job. MCing a BAA Christmas Lunch is no easy feat with our lunches being notoriously noisy and unruly. Georgina did a brilliant job in keeping the audience under control when necessary and providing great comedic relief during the lunch. Georgina is an extremely professional performer. Her relaxed style was very appealing to our audience. I would thoroughly recommend her for any MCing work."
