As a trained opera singer, I have a very healthy appreciation for well-run events! You make a great team. People have flocked to my desk this morning to compliment me on all aspects of the evening, but particularly the food. Please tell the chef how happy we were with the quality of the food and the portion sizes. Really generous and great tastes to everything. "
