Top Reviews from South Africa’s Leading Speakers


“Working with Marie Grey is “easy”. Direct, efficient and to the point. With her years of experience, she understands exactly what I offer as a speaker and also fully understands the client’s needs for their event. When the two line up she effortlessly makes the match and takes care of all the details, both big and small, easy game.

An absolute pleasure to work with her knowing every event will be exactly as the client visualised. A top professional in the event industry of the highest integrity.”

Marie and her team pay attention to detail, know the corporate and social context, speak to clients and know which speaker to match with an event. It’s always a great pleasure and a professional honour to work with Marie because literally “everything keeps going right”: the clients receive top advice and the speaker addresses the right audience. I cannot recommend Marie and her team enough. They are a gem.”
