Sam McCool

As a creative artist and entrepreneur, Sam McCool is always looking for an opportunity to decipher everyday experiences into artistic expressions and commercial ventures.

As a comedian, Sam burst onto the scene as a finalist on Australia’s Got Talent. He soon followed with sell-out solo shows at Sydney Opera House, several DVDs from his 1 hour comedy festival shows, and became a hit on the international comedy circuit touring from Bollywood to Hollywood and far beyond.

His MC skills are in high demand, having hosted events for TEDx, DELL, ACCOR, OPTUS, MIRVAC, SAMSUNG, AIRTASKER, ING DIRECT, AUSTRALIA POST, CANADIAN TOURISM COMMISSION, and the AUSTRALIAN EVENT AWARDS plus many other trusted brands (detailed list below).

Sam has become a trusted host for pitching, start up and tech events such as:

- TEDx Sydney (host in 2017, 2018, 2019) of St George’s Kickstart business idea pitch competition

- DELL Technologies South Asia Partner Summit (2018 in Fiji, 2019 in South Korea)

- Regular event host & founding member of The Studio - Sydney’s creative & media-tech incubator

- Host of Debate: Media-tech vs Fin-Tech: “MediaTech is the new FinTech”

- Host of Singularity U Summit - (at Sydney Opera House & ICC Sydney)

- Artificial Intelligence hoax for Taysols, a business analytics company

- Wearable technology hoax - CBHS & Lovisa - (in Melbourne)

- MC of Ducatus launch - a blockchain based cryptocurrency (in Bali for Asian and European audience)

On the speaking circuit, his keynotes include:

“Embracism” - Embracing difference and overcoming discrimination, while bringing dichotomous oppo- sites closer together whether it’s race, religion, gender, age, or sexuality.

“Mid Life Oasis” - How to avoid a mid-life crisis, by finding and following your true passion, and actually doing what you really love

“9 Lives” - lessons learnt from multiple near-death experiences - open heart surgery, car accidents, bike accidents, the Bali bomb, 2nd degree burns... and how to keep reinventing yourself.

On top of this Sam is also a published playwright with “Lighten Up” through Currency Press - developed by Sydney Theatre Company and performed at Griffin Theatre Company.

Sam’s one of Australia’s most multicultural ambassadors and expert in ‘TLC’: Travel, Languages and Culture. He’s traveled to over 70 countries, speaks French, Arabic, Indone- sian, Spanish and English in all it’s variations. Currently he is the host and co-creator of Australia’s first Multicultural game show “Melting Pot Luck!”

Sam is an expert in curated event hoaxes, where he speaks at your event under the guise of a fictitious character. Past examples have included: a Greek Diplomat delivering a keynote on the Greek Economic Crisis, a cross-cultural consultant from India for an Australian company bought by an Indian one, a Scottish comedian for AHRC, an English property expert for a Real Estate company, an American CEO of an Artificial Intelligence firm, and an expert in Wearable Technology for a fashion brand.

He has since pooled all this worldly speaking experience and coaches other speakers through his public “McCool Method of Speaking Success”, and corporate training with clients such as The Sydney Cricket Ground.
