" Patrick was an absolute delight to work with. He was extremely professional and very calm. We had a few issues with setting up which meant there Was a delay in rehearsing but he was happy to hang around and was very calm and patient. We doubled up the awards for this which meant he had to run across the stage for photos for all the awards and he managed this brilliantly. We would definitely be happy to use Patrick again! "
