Mike was absolutely brilliant! For the past 2 AIPP Queensland National Conferences we have had Mike as our Compere/Master of Ceremonies. His professionalism and dynamic personality fitted perfectly into our event. He engaged the audience with ease and made everyone laugh which relaxed the speakers to follow. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mike to any company that us looking for the charismatic professional MC. We certainly will be using Mike again to put a professional face on our events.
Mike was absolutely fantastic. He was professional, friendly, energetic, dynamic, flexible in delivery, and we feel he really did go above and beyond the 'call of duty'. He had exceptional time management skills and was able to assist us in dealing with a couple of stressful situations that occurred during our Conference. He met with us beforehand to discuss our needs and he exceeded all of our expectations. Funny, friendly, fabulous and highly recommended to all.
