“Cally is as good in front of camera as she is on stage. As witty and funny on the first take as the 15th. She is a pro and a pleasure to work with”

“Cally is warm, funny, articulate and what she says is perfectly pitched to her audience… she had us all in stitches as we recognised (and despaired at) the stereotyping women have to contend with. And all this at 8 o’clock in the morning!”
