Client & Audience Feedback

“It was so great to have Shivani on Gagan’s Saturday Breakfast show. The texts and emails continued to come in well after she’d gone – she was a big hit with our audience!”
Nishat Ladha, Producer for Gagan Grewal’s show BBC Asian Network | 2014

“Shivani kept a tough audience engaged during the live Blast Blast6 On Tour showcase event, the platform which enabled young people to share their work/perform to the public. Shivani demonstrated her ability to be flexible by responding well to last minute changes to the schedule. She’s an energetic presenter who has great humour, whit to charm and keep an audience engaged, and was able to skillfully control difficult youths at the event.
Shivani exceeded expectations and was a pleasure to work with.”

Dawinder Bansal, BBC Blast Event Organiser | 2009

“Shivani was a vital part of the success of Star TV’s Diwali show in Trafalgar Square and 1 hour programme. Her skill, intelligence and warmth as the presenter made building an instant rapport with the celebrities and the mass audience a breeze.
Off camera she was a pleasure to work with and incredibly organized, which helped with the tight turnaround needed on this sort of shoot.”

Sophie Hodgkins, Producer, The Creation Company Ltd | 2001

“Shivani compered the ?What If! Foundation’s high profile event at HM Treasury in Nov 2007. This was one of the headline events of Social Enterprise Day, during Global Entrepreneurship Week 2007 and was attended by several ministers including Ed Miliband, along with several senior civil servants and leading heads from the social enterprise world.
Shivani led proceedings with her warm style, energy and confidence, but also with a seriousness and sense of gravitas that was fitting to the event and audience. She held together the schedule, and coordinated a not uncomplicated interactive session brilliantly. She was a great asset and really helped us to deliver a very successful and memorable event.
Shivani is also a pleasure to deal with and is a true professional. She was so attentive to our needs and always adds her own touches to a job so that you get more than you originally designed.”

James Baderman | Director, ?What If! Social Innovation Foundation | 2007

“Shivani hosted The Big Boost finale lunch which was attended by social entrepreneurs and vip guests. She presented this event with real style and impact, drawing people into a common sense of purpose and creating an experience the would remember and vale in their future lives.
Her style is professional and relaxed, personal and authentic.”

Cliff Prior CBE, Chief Executive UnLtd: The Foundation for Social Entrepreneurs | 2008

“Shivani really brought the MYM with a Tenner Awards to life with her warm personality and high energy. Faced with diverse audience of children, politians, media and teachers she handled the tone of the day perfectly.”
Fiona Carnegie, Relationship Manager, Enterprise UK | 2009

“Shivani was the compère for Young Voice08 an off-shoot of our annual conference, Voice.
This event was aimed at young people (16-30 years), intended to inspire and educate them in Social Enterprise, and to encourage them to start thinking about it seriously as a career path. The event was attended by approximately 400 people, and was very well received by both attendees and sponsors.
Shivani did an exceptionally fantastic job. Her professionalism was exemplary throughout: she was always keen to engage in the preparation process, and during the actual event she remained calm and composed, but was also enthusiastic and very engaging.
She was excellent at rousing the audience’s enthusiasm, providing seamless links between the acts and speakers, and improvised brilliantly whenever necessary. All in all Shivani did an absolutely fantastic job.
It was a pleasure working with her on this project and we hope to be able to work with her again in the future and we would have no hesitation in recommending her to future clients.”

Mamoona Shah, Events & Marketing Manager, Social Enterprise Coalition | 2008

“Shivani was the perfect choice to compere our Social Enterprise Trade Fair event in 10th Feb 2009 which was attended by over 1,000 visitors.
With her friendly and outgoing manner, she communicates clearly and confidently and really connects with the audience.
She has an enormous amount of energy and enthusiasm, which so many people commented on. Shivani is a true professional, very flexible and easy to work with.”

Ranjit Bansal, Information and Marketing Officer, Social Enterprise West Midlands | 2009

“Shivani was the host and MC for the Young Achievers Awards Ceremony in March 2008. As our event host, Shivani added a great deal to the awards ceremony, bringing a touch of glamour, whilst being fantastically enthusiastic of the award winners.
The target audience was wide ranging from young volunteers, parents, youth workers to chief executives. Shivani had a fantastic mix of styles that really made everyone feel comfortable and included in the ceremony. She was very competent, ad-libbed well in areas that didn’t quite go to plan, really took a potentially dry script and made the presentation interesting and engaging.
She is so professional and very personable and did a great job coaching our other inexperienced presenters to help them present to their best.”

Fiona Jamieson Project Manager, Young Achievers Trust | 2008

“Shivani Mair played a pivotal role in the success of Ethique at Voice 08, the conference for Social Enterprise. In her role as compere for the event and roving reporter for the accompanying documentary, she excelled both personally and professionally, making lots of friends along the way.
Shivani is magnetism on and off screen, her radiant personality is made all the better by the fact that she is a genuinely caring and helpful person on and off stage and camera.
Shivani’s a worthwhile edition to any events/filming team. Her diligence, warm personality and professional skills (including great organisation!) will significantly improve your chances of success with your audience and make your working environment all the more enjoyable!”

Duane Melius, Editor SENSE Magazine | 2008

“Shivani Mair hosted the all day Make it Happen event in West London. The event was designed to inspire, motivate and educate 11 – 16 year olds on the many industries that have become popular to aspire to such as music, media and fashion in a way that captures their attention.
The day went better than expected due in combination to the vast array of speakers such as DJ Nihal, So Solid Crew and Priya Kalidas, who were all eager to interact with Shivani’s insightful and guiding host skills. She really kept the pace moving, interesting, focused and kept both the speakers and the audience on their toes.
Flawlessly professional the entire day through, I’d say without a doubt that she put her heart into the event and it was a breeze working with her.”

Mel Maw, Managing Director Moneypenny PR | 2008

“Shivani did a great job of keeping the link between the audience and the panelists-often panelists language is such that an audience doesn’t understand fully what it is that they are trying to convey.
She successfully broke down the barriers in an entertaining way that made the event less of a specialist event and more of a crossover event.”

Kwame Kwarten, Make it Happen Manager | 2008
