As a host or MC for gala events, Julia Streets is the perfect choice. She spends time and effort getting to know and understand the priorities for everyone involved, the organisers, technical teams even the caterers. Her style has the audience engaged throughout the whole event and her experience has set in good stead for handling pretty much any eventuality.
Julia also hosted a 2012 brokerage anniversary gala event at the Cipriani Ballroom, Wall Street New York, for 600 guests and has over the years has hosted a number of large gala dinners in the presence of Sarah, Duchess of York at Old Billingsgate Market in the City, the Kensington Roof Gardens and at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, all in aid of the charity, Children in Crisis.
In March 2015, Julia was the host of the inaugural 2015 Fin Tech Innovation Awards, at The Brewery, Chiswell Street in London. In 2016, Julia hosted the Banking and Tech Awards. In 2017, Julia spoke at the House of Lords Reception with Baroness Goudie. In 2018, Julia will be hosting the Women in Banking and Finance Awards, for the third year running, at the Ballroom in the Hilton, Park Lane.
“Julia Streets clearly enjoys hosting major events. It’s not easy to command the attention of niche audiences like those in the FinTech industry, but Julia’s industry knowledge allowed her to deliver to this audience, with relish. Julia hosted the 2015 bobsguide FinTech Innovation Awards , held at the Brewery, London. Her smooth running commentary and spontaneous remarks delivered the perfect elements for a memorable event.”
