“Tanya was brought into a programme with an existing formula.
Professional Presenter interviews Sir Fred Goodwin about the half year figures and the why’s and wherefores. It’s never easy to just walk into a tried and tested formula and make it work, but that is exactly what Tanya did, within minutes she had established a rapport with the Director of Marketing for RBS and then during the interview with Sir Fred. Tanya was knowledgeable and very well prepared she made a very lasting impression on her interviewee not just for her professionalism but for her obvious understanding of some very in-depth and highly complicated financial matters. It was a pleasure to work with her.”
