Event Testimonials

Magnificent 5-star performance by internationally-acclaimed presenter Maria Ramos. She showed heart, personality and passion for the conference and the cause.

Claudio Tomasi, UNDP - Turkey Director

Maria did an amazing job moderating the high-profile online launch of our flagship report. She was professional, well-prepared and engaged, and her energy and presence contributed significantly to the success of the event.

Alanna Armitage, Director, UNFPA Eastern Europe and Central Asia

TRT World anchor Maria Ramos was a highly-professional MC for the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union’s Global News Forum in Istanbul in July, 2019.

Well briefed, warm and fully committed, Maria was a delight to work with.

Wendy Everett, ABU Director News

Maria was a fantastic MC for our flagship UNDP Istanbul Development Dialogues conference. Curious, dynamic and a pleasure to work with!

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!

Bastien Revel, Inter-Agency Coordinator, UNDP Turkey

Maria’s presentation, moderation and professional touch added a special element which contributed immensely to this important event. It was a pleasure to work with Maria.

Defne Sadıklar Arslan, Director Atlantic Council IN TURKEY

TRT World anchor Maria Ramos was a talented Master of Ceremonies for the Global Tourism  Forum Recovery & Beyond Summit. I totally recommend her to as a Conference Moderator and MC.

Bulut Bağcı, President of the World Tourism Forum Institute.

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.

Luciana Aguiar, Programme Manager, UNDP Business Call to Action

International anchor and journalist Maria Ramos from TRT World showed a remarkable performance during Antalya Diplomacy Forum held in June 2021 both as M/C and moderator, and thus contributed to the success of this important event. We truly appreciate it and extend our heartfelt thanks to Maria.
