“Julia Zemiro as host of Opera in the Vineyards 2009 – what can I say…. this lady has it all, she’s brilliant, clever, witty and totally stunning. She was an absolute professional and a great pleasure to work with. I really hope we can work together again very soon!”
Paul Chester – 4D International

“The dinner was a great success due, in no small measure, to Julia’s witty and entertaining performance as MC. It was a real pleasure to work with her.”
Michael Pearce SC – President Liberty Victoria

“Just wanted to let you know how wonderful Julia was last night. The IKEA team absolutely loved her and thought that she was the perfect ‘host’ for the launch. We also had heaps of positive comments from the media and other guests about Julia’s unique humour, charm and professionalism. Everyone had a great time, and Julia played a major part in making the IKEA Catalogue launch a great success, so please thank her again.”
