“Victoria’s excellent commentary ensured that the exhibits took on far more meaning than perhaps they would otherwise have done”
“Our guide was excellent, she was very knowledgeable and I thought she pitched her introductions and thoughts on each piece at just the right level. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or book her in the future”
Constance Gounod, Head of Press and of Business Development, Saatchi Gallery
“Thank you so much for an enlightening evening at the Saatchi Gallery the other evening. You have an excellent presentation style with just the right pitch that was informative, interesting and easy to understand. Your commentary totally changed my perception of the exhibition and perhaps even modern art in general”
Chantal Bertrand from the cultural French charity: Littor’elles
“La visite de la Saatchi Gallery ce matin était superbe. La conférencière était si dynamique et enthousiaste et j’ai appris tant de choses”
