"A sincere thank you for being so incredible at VeeamON. The feedback has been glowing! From attendees to execs, everyone has said how strong we came back after a 3 year hiatus and how trailblazing it was to return with a simultaneous hybrid offering. Watching those "Live from Vegas" segments, I was blown away. You came across so warm, knowledgeable, comfortable and crisp that it seemed as though you’d been our virtual event host for years. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and I know our audience responded extremely well to you as our virtual host. Veeam will definitely want to see Amy McWhirter grace the stage or screen again in the future."
