WHAT PEOPLE SAY

COTY PROFESSIONAL BEAUTY

EVENTS & EDUCATION DIRECTOR

“It was a joy to work with Margaret on the Coty Professional Beauty National Conference. Margaret’s knowledge and experience made a huge difference to our workload and the quality of our scripts on this important day. She demonstrated patience and an excellent understanding of our key messages. She worked well with the more seasoned presenters and the less experienced ones. The conference was a great success.”
