Palliative Care WA ‘Death over Dinner’

In conversation with Dennis Haskell
Joondalup Resort

Di Darmody will delight any crowd with her effervescence, wit and charm. She was the MC for a large event in the country where I was a guest author.

The 200-strong crowd was in her thrall. She was not only the MC, but interviewed a panel of three authors for an hour and was as entertaining as her guests. Several members of the audience commented favourably to me about her professionalism and bubbly personality.

After a long career as a presenter in radio, her journalistic instincts will hold her in good stead at any function. I’d highly recommend her.

Di Darmody with her professional and warm manner brought people together at the Zest Festival in Kalbarri WA.

Her approach to the important role of MC engaged our patrons in not just a “what’s on next” but built the story around all our cultural events with interviews, descriptions and impeccable timing and charm.

We had over 2000 patrons with activities spread over a large distance but Di took the challenge on with style and was able to think quickly on her feet and build rapport with our performers, artists, VIP’s and community members. We definitely want Di to continue as our MC at future Zest Festivals.
