“Maryam coped with everything that the rollercoaster threw at her, without missing a step.I think we coined the phrase in rehearsals, “elegant informality” and she delivered that 150%.She owned the Du Arena and drove the proceedings with such a warm touch.At every mark, Maryam hit the right tone.

Humorous and light with the Champions, respectful and measured with the VIP’s and Guests.As the face of the Closing Ceremony, I for one consider that Maryam represented Abu Dhabi and the UAE in the most professional and engaging way.”

“It was a great pleasure to have Maryam Amiri as Emcee at our very first Responsible Care Conference, this was an important industry event for us, she kept the event running smoothly with professionalism and eloquence. She moderated engaging panel debates and managed the sessions beautifully, I would not hesitate to recommend her.”

– Dr Abdulwahab Sadoun, Director General, Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association.

“I was invited to be part of a panel discussion at the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week event. This was the first time I had ever been on stage, and it happened to be in front of hundreds of people. Naturally, I was very nervous. Questions in my head included: How can I be confident and comfortable? What if I get asked a question I haven’t prepared for? How can I maintain engagement with the audience?

Given that Maryam has plenty of on-stage experience, I approached her for some advice on how to go about this panel discussion. After several sessions, not only did I receive advice, but I received practical coaching on stage presence, communicating my messages, and learning to enjoy the opportunity at hand.

Since then, Maryam has helped me find my voice and package messages I want to communicate which took place in diverse settings such as preparing for TV interviews and discussing project proposals with big companies.

For anyone wanting to better their public speaking and even find the joy in it, I highly recommend coaching sessions with Maryam!”
