“Torie is simply fantastic, a true one take wonder, and best of all a dream to work with. No matter what the circumstances she delivers a bright, brilliant performance. I wish there were more opportunities for TV presenters because Torie deserves to be on our screens. Above all else she is a lovely person. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”
Jonathan Glazier – Former Editorial Head of BBC Light Entertainment, Format and production consultant.
“Once again, thank you so much for your great work in Berlin. Not only for Guava Productions but also for Toyota it was a great pleasure working with a professional woman like you who puts so much enthusiasm in her work. I hope we will have the opportunity to work together in the future…”
Valerie De Coster – Project Manager, Events. GUAVA – Antwerp.
“Torie is professional, gets on well with the competitors, is always on time, great to work with as nothing is too much trouble. She is prepared to do whatever work has to be one to complete the programmes, and is quite understanding if we have to do several takes.
So far she has introduced the programmes from a Helicopter, from a boat and even a horse drawn tram, she is good at remembering lines which are sometimes quite long intro’s.
Importantly the event organisers and sponsors get on well with her and are pleased with what she is doing for the programmes. She has gone to some trouble to research the project and is a joy to work with. She is destined to go a long way.”
Ron Isles, Dream Team Television, Honda Formula 4 Stroke Off Shore Power Boat Championships
“The Honda Formula Four Stroke Powerboat Race events are unique occasions in the UK , built up over 8 years the excitement of affordable one design powerboat racing is not only on water but on land as well as the 40 teams prepare to race against each other and the conditions. On an event its easy to feel the excitement and tension of racing , however its more difficult to translate this to TV, Torie has been able to achieve this . In the short time she had pre season she ensured that she understood the rules , the tactics and the people , this allowed her to ask the questions that the viewer wanted to be asked . She also understood the emotions of the teams , wherever that finished ( or not finished ) in the race and was able to link all aspects of the racing so that the 24 minute programme captured the occasion as if you had been there.
Torie also helped out at our Annual Awards Dinner held at the London Hilton on Park Lane and was stunning in RED …..the Honda colour !.
Off camera she also had a great and interested rapport with teams and supporters and became enjoyed the social activities that make the series what it is , I believe this made her approachable to all.
We have been delighted with Torie and are looking forward to her presenting the next season’s programmes.”
