�We had the pleasure of having Jacinta Tynan MC our Domestic and Family Violence Luncheon earlier this year.

Jacinta was amazing, her authenticity and her ability to connect with the audience was truly profound, she kept the audience engaged and was very professional, friendly, and witty.

Jacinta made the event a huge success. The subject matter can at times be difficult, but she handled some unexpected situations with grace and I have received many compliments from our guests and staff.

I highly recommend Jacinta Tynan as an MC for any event and Mounties Group will continue to use her for future events."
