Pat is expert at knitting together the various elements of a lunch or evening function. As compere/master of ceremonies, he does his homework, turns up early, ensures the acoustics work and remains flexible throughout, keeping his contributions short and sweet where necessary. He keeps the spotlight on the focus of the event and the deserving people. He has the knack of accurately gauging just the right amount of talk needed to gel a successful event, while leaving plenty of time for the guests to talk among themselves.
