"WONDERFUL HOST"


Marie was a wonderful host during Playcon’s 2022 GameDev & Esports Summit. She brings with her years of experience and it shows in the insights given during the show.


We’re very happy to have had Marie for this role, she did her research well and made sure to gather as much information as possible about our speakers which showed when she introduced them on stage.


Marie also acted as moderator on a number of panels and leveraged her industry expertise skillfully to ask relevant questions and ensure the discussions were insightful.

"CAPTIVATING"


Marie was hosting at Nordic Game Conference and Nordic Game Awards gala 2022, and did a fantastic job with both. She was very easy to work with and her communication and preparation for the event was excellent.


Once live, Marie captivated the audience with her humor and charisma and showed great improvisation skills and ‘cool’. No matter what situation was being thrown at her – technical delays, speakers arriving late or award mix-ups, she handled them like a pro and made sure to always keep the crowd entertained. We are looking forward to work with Marie again at future events.
