After Dinner
Awards Host
Conference Chair / MC

Mark Lewis

Thank you for the intrinsic role you played in making Friday’s Back to the Floor event such a roaring success. I can only imagine how draining it must be, to bear the responsibility for keeping an evening with so many moving parts on track – and then to have to play the crucial role of auctioneer. Watching the evening unfold from my seat, I was immeasurably proud of what you, Danny. James, Sophie and Astrid had achieved. It was clear that guests and participants had a whale of a time – the atmosphere was wonderful. We’re so proud to have you as an HA Ambassador! Of course, the most important aspect of the event was the mind-boggling amount raised, which will enable us to transform the lives of countless hospitality families.

You are always able to hold the audience so masterfully and deliver the proceedings with such humour, and the reception would never be the same without your skilful touch.

As per, you were fabulous and well researched on the topics and speakers - it doesn’t go unnoticed! I just wanted to say a huge thank you from the board, who yet again happily sung your praises.
