On behalf of Asialink and Asialink Business I would like to express my gratitude to you for being our Master of Ceremonies at this year’s Sir Edward Weary Dunlop Asialink Dinner. I appreciate the time and commitment you gave for this occasion and skill at keeping the pace of the event moving to keep the audience engaged. You were the perfect Master of Ceremonies. Your personal story on how you overcame gender/race bias was an inspiration for many young women in the room. We received excellent feedback from the audience including our supporters and partners and I know I speak for all of us here at Asialink in expressing our appreciation to you for making the event such a success. Once again, my profound thanks for your contribution and hope to work again with you in the future.
