Your important job in events and marketing means you need to run successful events to engage your
organisation’s clients and staff. But you have a lot of stakeholders to keep happy, and a bit of a juggling act to do.

The events need to not only engage and excite your audiences, but also match the big expectations and ambitions
of your leadership team, who may not know as much about how to run these things as you do!

You need an awesome Event Host to help you pull this off, so it’s essential you find the right person that will not
only wow your audiences and keep your bosses happy, but will work well with you and your team.

You want an energetic, charismatic and professional Emcee with great credentials and experience,
who is also relatable, fun to work with, and a real team player.

What I Do

Before The Event

I bring my unflappable style and 20 years experience as a broadcast journalist and business Event Host to become a vital part of your event planning team, lending professional opinions, tips, advice and design ideas to your planning process. And I can help prepare your speakers with presentation training.

I aim to always bring extra value to the party, and the earlier I’m booked the more you will gain.

I attend meetings with your key stakeholders and contributors, work with your agenda and produce a well-written and researched script that reflects all current trends and issues around the event subject but with the tone and message you require.

I can help with pre, during, and post-event social media promotion for example making promotional video messages, sharing content, interviewing contributors.

On The Day Itself

I run the stage, welcome the audience, and give the speakers a warm introduction. I keep the momentum high, and attendees engaged, bringing together all the different strands of your event into one coherent message.

I have an intuitive knack for engaging audiences, quickly reading the dynamics of a room and maintaining high energy levels.

l ensure the continuity of the proceedings, and moderate panels, interviews and fireside chats with an informed voice used to live interviewing.

On the day I use the script as a guide – but I don’t ‘read’ from it; and I ad-lib as required with charm and humour.

Professional and unfazed by glitches, tech problems and on-the-day dramas, I can be counted on as a team player who always goes above and beyond to help event teams deliver the best events with the wow factor for their clients.
