“I have recently had the pleasure of working with Lorraine, who has become a fabulous ambassador for Silk&Steel. Not only is Lorraine incredibly professional, inspiring and a wonderful person to work with, she is a powerful brand in her own right – with a clear fan base! Lorraine recently wore Silk&Steel jewellery in a well know New Zealand publication, which subsequently generated a number of direct sales for the pieces she adorned. I look forward to working with Lorraine again in the near future and could not recommend Lorraine more highly.” Sarah Cotterall  |  Designer and Director of Silk & Steel

“It was really important for us in the restage of Symbio Probalance that we created a product that had both an effective dose of probiotics so it would work and tasted delicious.  We were absolutely delighted when Lorraine agreed to be our spokesperson and she is both beautiful but most importantly, has a huge amount of integrity and warmth that Kiwis respond to.  This was apparent right from the start.  She went out of her way to make sure that she was well-informed about the benefits of probiotics, and was involved with us in the final stages of developing the product – making sure that both she and her family liked the taste.   She was an absolute pleasure to work with – both before, during and after the shoot.  We really felt that she went the extra mile to make this relaunch a success for us.” Renee Milkop-Kerr  |   Marketing Manager – Cultured   |   Fonterra Brands NZ

“With the introduction of our International Airline Concierges, a world-first for the aviation industry it was important that we gave our Concierges the best tools to allow them to perform their roles to the best of their ability.  Grooming and personal presentation is an important element of the role as it not only gives our people the confidence to deal with a wide range of customer situations but it is also important that our people represent our brand and culture. To ensure our Concierges received the best advice and standards training, we selected Lorraine Downes, Image Consultant, to deliver and facilitate the Grooming training.” Louise Simkin  |  Talent Consultant  |  Air New Zealand

“Lorraine recently spoke at one of our major women’s events (Girls Nite Out) with about 500 women attending. Lorraine was the highlight of our evening with her down to earth, open and honest approach to life. She captured our audience with her genuine and gracious personality. People could relate to her “realness” as she shared her personal experiences. I would highly recommend Lorraine as a key note speaker.” Nicola Gaze  |  Elim Christian Centre  |  Auckland

“The incredibly stylish Let’s hear it for the girls expo is held annually in New Plymouth, Taranaki and a celebrity guest is invited to attend to MC the weekend event. It was an easy decision as to who we wanted as special guest at the 2007 show, Lorraine Downes typifies absolutely everything a women would want to be, she is elegant, sophisticated, gorgeous and extremely professional. We knew Lorraine would be an absolute success at the event. A chic and high profile expo encompassing everything hot in fashion and beauty to home & lifestyle. Lorraine did nothing but amaze the expo visitors, with not only her grace and beauty but her friendliness & warmth. From the moment I met Lorraine, we instantly developed a rapport and the anxiety of being face to face with former Miss Universe 1983 quickly dissolved. Lorraine delivered from every perspective, introducing catwalk shows with style and enthusiasm, networking with expo visitors & exhibitors in such a professional easy going manner and taking personal time out chatting & sharing her knowledge with our own models. Away from the scene, I never questioned my husband’s judgement, that Lorraine was the next big thing for our Company to bring to New Plymouth. The feedback from our exhibitors and the general public was nothing but rewarding. There is certainly no doubt that Lorraine Downes was everything we wanted and more from a celebrity guest.” Nicola Phelan  |  Serene Events Limited  |  New Plymouth

“We were delighted to have Lorraine speak at our Mother Daughter Breakfast, she was an excellent choice who understood our brief well. All our guests were captivated. Lorraine was interesting, spoke well, delivered good age appropriate messages and of course is still gorgeous!” Pamela Peryman  |  Director of School Relations  |  Kristin School
