‘Alison’s professionalism and expertise was a main contributor to the success of the World Employment Conference 2018 and her personable interest in everyone who graced the stage allowed them to feel a main contributor no matter how small a part they played.
I have never seen anyone to be able to manipulate and remove so gracefully strong personalities from the podium and have some banter with them as well, especially the ones who are used to getting their own way. It was thrilling to watch!
It was a pleasure to work with Alison and my main memories are how calm she made me feel as an organiser over the three days, because if anything went wrong I knew she would be able to cover it.” Geraldine King. CEO National Recruitment Federation
Alison was an excellent MC for the World Employment Conference 2018. Her experience, natural charm and obvious in-depth research into the subject matter and speakers made the entire conference flow seamlessly. Many of our international speakers commented on her true professionalism and ability to keep to time – an essential element in any conference programme. We would have no hesitation in recommending Alison for any future conferences and hope our paths cross again soon. Anne Doherty – CEO Happening Events.

“Alison Comyn is a noted Irish broadcaster, but she is also a top class communicator and convenor on whatever topic is presented. I could not recommend her professionalism higher. In Ireland she is indeed among the best.” Sean Collins M.A.
“Since meeting Alison Comyn and working with her on a variety of events and ventures, I have found her to be very organised, committed, thorough and totally professional in her attitude. This is matched by her superb presentation and flawless delivery which is just as much suited to a light hearted audience as it is to a serious current affairs topic.
She has lent her considerable talents and public persona to many successful fundraising ventures for Boyne RFC, compering several major fundraising ventures, plus also receiving the honour of being the first lady to be invited to be Guest Speaker at the rugby club’s annual dinner which involved Presidents of all the senior clubs in Leinster.
After joining The Drogheda Male Voice Choir as Public Relations Officer, I proposed that she become the choir’s Continuity Announcer. Despite her heavy work schedule at that time, she very graciously accepted the role and in the process gained the respect and admiration of not only the audiences but, the 55 members of the Drogheda Male Voice Choir. This admiration and respect for her role as compere, was complemented by the conferral of Honorary Life Membership of the choir which is indeed a unique commendation for her compering success with the Drogheda Male Voice Choir.
In all aspects of professional and personal friendship with Ms Comyn, I have found her to be a person of sincerity and loyalty. ” Seamus Briscoe – Boyne Rugby Club & Drogheda Male Voice Choir
“Alison presented Drogheda 600 a programme of poetry to celebrate the town and its 600th year. As director of Drogheda Creative Writers I was struck by the beautiful voice and her well assembled introductions. As others have cited the consummate professional with spirit and a smile. John O’Rourke – Director Drogheda Creative Writers
