I have had the great pleasure of working with Deborah Hutton on numerous occasions over the last 5 years and think she is one of the best MCs and interviewers I have come across. Deborah knows how to really engage an audience at all ages and levels of any organisation. From internal company events to public events Deborah is brilliant at really helping to get your messages across.
Deborah is also a delight to deal with in the preparation stages and is extremely diligent in making sure she really knows the audience and the information she needs to make the event a great success.
The working relationship has always been extremely professional and I am always confident when seeking Deborah’s MC/hosting talent.

Deborah's willingness to go above and beyond was demonstrated when her Co-MC for the 2013 ONJ Gala cancelled at the last minute. Deborah didn't miss a beat, flying solo for the night and ensuring that the event remained a success.

I have known Deb for near on 30 years and have watched her flourish under the careful mentorship of the great Harry Miller.

It’s why our national carrier signed her as their on-board ambassador and presenter and it’s why, today, she is a signature talent for Foxtel, where she is the face of our coveted Arts channel, where she hosts its flagship series, “Stage and Screen.” I love so many things about Deb, but especially her down-to-earth approach, her remarkable style, her curiosity and intuitive interviewing technique and her great sense humour. Deb is loads of fun. She has a natural affinity with people and makes anyone she interviews feel naturally at ease. You simply won’t find anyone more professional, or loyal.
