mc for the Air New Zealand Millennium Hotels Fashion in the Field at Riccarton Park during Christchurch Cup Week

01, December 2004

your MC decision could make or break your event or conference 

One of the first things to ensure you get a return on your investment for an event or convention is who will be your Master of Ceremonies or MC? 

Their role is to make themes, transitions, and event logistics look seemless. A good MC is the cement keeping dozens of pieces together. Effective planning and good communication with your MC brings confidence to any occasion. 

Working with your MC can ensure your event runs to time with an injection of fun and humour   while you enjoy the program you have planned.

some feedback

At our recent Convention in Queenstown we included John in a number of roles - as our MC or Conference weaver, as an entertainer, and as a Conference presenter/speaker. John was able to separate the roles and to perform at the highest level for each of them.  His enthusiasm and willingness to create a great show and rally the delegates helped make our 2005 Convention one of the most memorable in recent years. John is a delight to work with, extremely accommodating, and I am positive that anyone employing his services will find that John “over delivers” on what he promises.  We will certainly be using John again.

You came highly recommended to me for your expertise in public speaking and your ability to adapt to any situation whilst portraying  a professional image. I can honestly say that your "performance" as Prince Charming, our MC for Cholmondeley Children's Home "Cinderella Ball", far exceeded my expectations !!! You were fantastic, and the feedback from those who attended the ball has been very positive. I will certainly be recommending your services and look forward to working with you again in the future. Thank you so much for your part in helping us raise money so we can continue to support children and families in crisis.

John was excellent as MC at our recent Crafar Crouch Crazy Commuter bike race. He firstly did his homework on background facts and figures, then on the day he kept the spectator crowds entertained and informed. Very professional! Thanks John

As an MC John was extremely professional meeting me before the event to go over the brief and discuss the run of night.  As Austin Powers he had the entire group eating out of his hand as soon as he entered the room.  This is no mean feet as our group is an extremely diverse one, but his energy level made him irresistible to all who attended – they loved him!  He got everyone interacting with each other and got them up and moving. He was brilliant and went well above and beyond what we expected and I'd certainly recommend him to anyone who was wanting an unsurpassed entertainer and MC.
