What clients say...
“Désirée Duray is the most professional moderator I have worked with.
Our company ABB has worked with her on several events, and her stage presence is professional, authentic and charismatic.
She engages naturally with everyone on stage and the audience.
What I like most about her moderation, is that she improvises naturally when needed and makes the entire event fun, bringing it to a next level.
Her professionalism and attention to detail, to make the event perfect, starts with the first briefing call to the delivery of the event.
During the preparation process, for her script, I was super impressed as she delivered, already with the first draft, exactly what the company expected - and indeed, exceeded our expectations.
Her broad knowledge of topics, in particular for our industry, is outstanding.
Desiree is fun to work together with, she brings in a lot of great ideas and goes beyond her mandate as a moderator.
And also, gave us great ideas and inputs for the delivery of the overall event, to maximise the customer experience.
I would warmly recommend her to anyone looking to deliver a professional, engaging and fun event.”
