What people said about Mark Dolan

  • "Excellent entertainment for the evening and great awards host!"
  • - Sayer Vincent
  • "Mark was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. He was very well prepared and where he wasn't sure of exact run of play on some of the finer details of the company or the product, he asked instead of blundering his way through. He was very relaxed and as the evening didn't have a rigid fixed agenda he adapted really well - making it an enjoyable event for everyone there and giving the appearance of a very well-polished and organised event. What was particularly nice is that he always referred to staff and guests by first names and didn't appear to have an ego. He was very funny and witty in what can normally be quite a dry and formal atmosphere which was a bonus!"
  • - MahiFX
  • "Mark was extremely professional, polite and friendly. He arrived promptly and was well prepared, he even took the time with me to make sure his speech was worded correctly and that he was going to pronounce staff members names correctly. There was no real "celeb" status he was very down to earth and a pleasure to be around"
