Her performance work has been complemented by her Masters Degree in Creative Arts Therapy, during which she worked with groups ranging from adolescent psychiatric to senior management (no surprise there!)

"Chris Keogh acted as MC for the Infosys Australia’s Annual Awards event in October 2009. Chris was a joy to work with: flexible, responsive and professional. She seamlessly integrated our stated requirements into her own energetic delivery style, resulting in an event which engaged the audience and led to many positive comments from attendees. I’d recommend Chris to any organisation looking for a dynamic MC/Facilitator who brings a great sense of fun, whilst ensuring that the formalities flow smoothly." Sonia Edwards - Infosys Australia
