Andrea spoke at the first Women in PR Cymru event, at an Inaugural Media lunch and she was fantastic.

She talked candidly about her career as a broadcast journalist, sharing stories and talking about the importance of honest and truthful reporting. We had great feedback from the audience about Andrea’s speech including how she was feeling about her return to work as a first time mum. Women in PR Cymru cannot thank Andrea enough for setting the tone for our future events and we would have her back without hesitation. The ultimate professional and a true advocate for Women in PR.

I had the privilege of working with Andrea in developing local TV News and “live”magazine shows, Andrea is a first class presenter and I knew that we were always going to be a small stepping stone in the career of someone so talented.

Nigel Taylor, Production Director

The Institute of Directors (IoD) in Wales’ annual “flagship” event is our awards ceremony which typically sees over 400 business leaders attending to celebrate the achievements of Directors in all sectors from all parts of Wales.

Andrea has hosted this prestigious event on many occasions with absolute professionalism, style and panache. It is always a joy to work with her!

Robert Lloyd Griffiths OBE , Director, IoD Wales

Andrea is a fantastic host. She has co-presented the RCN Wales Nurse of The Year on an annual basis in Cardiff City Hall. This is a Wales-wide high profile event and she has been instrumental in ensuring a professional and engaging atmosphere. Everyone enjoys this celebratory event – so much so that she has also hosted the RCN Leadership event where Nurse leaders from across Wales come together to debate serious and contentious issues alongside innovation. Andrea manages to keep the audience and presenters engaged. Andrea is the consummate professional presenter – full of humour and compassion …. loved having her at our events.

Tina Donnelly CBE , High Sheriff, Mid Glamorgan

Andrea has worked for me on a number of awards events and has always done a great job and is a joy to work with. Always professional but has time for everyone on the night and I would not hesitate to recommend her if you are looking for any awards hosts for your events.

Matthew Fisher , Managing Director at Scamp Speakers - Motivational & Business Speakers

I’ve been fortunate enough to work with Andrea in a variety of different roles. I would very much recommend her highly engaging and professional approach to all areas of her work but specifically event compering.

Simon Clarke, Head of Aquatic Development - Swim Wales

Andrea’s willingness to help, plus her understanding of our background in setting up Trust PA in memory of our son Paul-Andre (P-A) has been really heart warming for us.

Andrea’s figurative support and calm professionalism has enabled us to reach a wider audience. This has also raised vital funds to support & continue our quest; to help fund the development of effective treatments. Thank you Andrea, we really value your kindness, generous personal support and valuable contribution.

Rob & Gerri Blundell , Trust PA Spinal Repair Charity

Andrea Byrne was a moderator and facilitator for our online Early Career Researcher networking and skills event. Over two days she hosted panels, moderated Q&A sessions, and introduced guest speakers. She was able to create the perfect informal, yet informative and efficient, atmosphere and met all our requests and changes with absolute professionalism.  We would love to work with Andrea again in the future.

Penny Lauder, Swansea University

FSB Wales has booked Andrea for the last few years to host our Wales final of the Celebrating Small Business Awards. Some of the winners are very nervous about speaking in front of an audience, but Andrea is the perfect professional host and has the rare ability to put the winners at ease when interviewing them on stage.  This ensures that the winners and the audience get the most from the experience.  When things occasionally go wrong with last minute changes or technology challenges, Andrea remains serene and deals with these challenges using good humour and empathy, ensuring that the smooth flow of the event continues uninterrupted. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrea as the perfect event host!

Mike Learmond, FSB, Wales

Andrea is an impressive facilitator and interviewer. She hosted the CIPFA Cymru annual conference with charm and warmth, and expertly ensured smooth transitions between the sessions. An absolute professional, who was able to quickly relate to the topics and themes with skill, and engage effectively with speakers and delegates alike. She really was the linchpin for the day! Diolch yn fawr iawn Andrea!”

Dr Andrew Richardson, Welsh Public Body

It was great having Andrea hosting our conference. We have received good feedback and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her.
