Nicolas Douillet, Head of UNDP Eurasia Communications

I had the pleasure to meet Maria and it exceeded my expectations for her fantastic moderating skills during a high-level Forum on Sustainable Development that was co-organised by the United Nations and the government of Azerbaijan in Baku in October 2018. Maria was assertive in interacting with high-level delegates including her high respect for protocol and rightly putting subject matter for discussion in an easy to understand manner.

Delawar Barekzai, United Nations Senior SDG Advisor

Whether Maria moderates a session with 4-5 participants or she holds one-on-one talks and discussions, she always keeps the debate alive, captures the attention of the audience as well as bringing joy to the Forum.

Onur Kanan, TRT World Forum

Maria did once again a fantastic job moderating the launch of UNDP-Atlantic Council joint report on refugees resilience. She has a unique ability to both raise the profile of the event to the highest standards while creating a warm atmosphere engaging panelists and presenters. Refugees issues are close to her heart, which is really key to keep the audience focused during and beyond the event!

Maria, we want to give you a big applause for your professional, straight forward, serious and and  up-to-date master of ceremony management  in REM Convention 2021 – which we believe are the most important attibutes for a journalist. In the two days, you did not only manage our event perfectly but had lots of fun at the same time.

Burçin Girit, BSH, Bosch/Siemens

Working with Maria was an absolute pleasure. She was professional, yet personable and very well prepared for the event. We would not hesitate to select her as a presenter for our events in the future.

Maria was a delight to work with as a moderator. She embraced the subject matter with conviction and enthusiasm, was well prepared and knowledgeable about each of the speakers, and was amenable to the last-minute changes that so often characterize an event of this scale. I look forward to working with her again at future events.

Paige Kollock, Deputy Programme Director, Doha Forum
I want to thank you Maria, for hosting the WTTC’s 22nd annual Global Summit. The event was the biggest in our history – and it was no small task to shepherd the many speakers, ministers, chief executives and delegates between their panels and speeches. Not only did Maria inject energy into every moment, she spoke with so much grace and positivity – it was a delight to watch a true professional at work. And on a personal note, I wanted to thank Maria for the incredibly thoughtful way she engaged with all the WTTC staff behind the scenes – making everything appear easy and seamless, both onstage and off.
Julia Simpson, President & CEO World Travel & Tourism Council

We were delighted to have Maria present at the Global Vaccine Impact Conference in Madrid and are grateful for the contributions she made during the event.
Specifically, her moderation of the panel focused on the malaria vaccine and preventative measures for that preventable disease is one that is very close to my heart. Thank you Maria for your contagious enthusiasm, warmth and professionalism throughout the three days of the Gavi MTR.

Dr Seth Berkley, MD Chief Executive Officer Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance.

‘Maria was a fantastic Master of Ceremonies (in English and Spanish) for a high-level event celebrating the start of Spain’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union.  It’s always a pleasure to work with Maria. She makes the process seamless, stress free and brings great energy and professionalism to such an important event.’

Javier Hergueta Garnica, Spain’s Ambassador to Türkiye

María Ramos was an outstanding Master of Ceremonies for the UN World Tourism Day 2023 global celebration in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This year’s celebrations of World Tourism Day were the biggest held so far: We welcomed more than 40 Ministers of Tourism, hundreds of delegates and hosted several high-level panels. At every stage of her participation, Ms. Ramos ensured the conversation flowed and remained on topic. She was able to engage the audience and uphold the energy levels high. I am grateful to Ms. Ramos for her professionalism, and I am confident, without reservation that Ms. Ramos would develop the role of Master of Ceremonies or Moderator, at the highest standards.  At the World Tourism Organization, we are looking forward to working with her again.

Zurab Pololikashvili , UNWTO Secretary-General

It was a great pleasure to work with Maria Ramos and host a very timely important meeting about the “Black Sea Grain Deal Initiative” in the European Parliament together with the EU Agricultural Commissioner and Ukrainian Ministers. She is an excellent Master of Ceremony with a strong personality and her professionalism made our event very successful.
