"The evening was a great success and Claudia made it such a great success. Claudia was not only an excellent host who drove the whole positive energy in the room but she absolutely made our night by sitting with team cma for dinner. Claudia is wonderful company, down to earth and hilarious, she is a fantastic host. We had countless positive comments from all of our attendees many of whom practically mobbed her for selfies and she was gracious enough to oblige."
