Abe Watson

Creative

Abe’s organisational skills are exemplary. All aspects of the production were handled with care, efficiency and meticulous planning. Venue liaison, marketing and technical liaison were all handled with aplomb and the minimum of fuss. Abe’s careful, enthusiastic management of these areas was very influential in the great success of this show.
— John Murray
