Full Presenter Profile & Bio
Michael Pope holds a unique place in the Australian entertainment industry. A former TV presenter himself, Michael has been the first choice for audience warm-up since 1990 and has worked on more studio audience-based programs than anyone else.
Transforming a disparate group of 200 into one cohesive audience is what Michael does better than anyone else through his energy, quick wit and great sense of fun. In the past 12 months Michael has worked on The Voice, Dancing with The Stars, Talkin' 'Bout Your Generation, Mad as Hell, The Footy Show, Hamish & Andy, Millionaire Hotseat, The Logies, The AACTA Awards, The Australia Day Ceremony and many one-off recordings.
It is this same sense of entertainment that he brings to his corporate work. As well as MC-ing the night, Michael can also perform any number of 'acts' ranging from 5 minutes to 45 minutes. His forte is in improvisation and inclusion, and guests feel very connected to the event during any one of his “you had to be there” moments! With over 25 years of experience in the corporate sphere, Michael can be relied upon to bring professionalism, enthusiasm and a sense of fun to all his work.
Distilling his experience over the years, Michael now presents a keynote address on “Points of Presenting Explained: P.O.P.E.” This 45 minute presentation is well suited to anyone who needs to address an audience - whether it's around the boardroom table of 20, or to a larger group. This presentation delivers sharp and insightful messages in an entertaining and interactive way.
In addition, with Michael's experience as a theatre director and television producer, he can offer a broader perspective if desired. He is happy to meet at the early stages of event planning and offer his experience and perspectives. His work spans theatre, cabaret, corporate presentations, breakfast radio and television as both host and producer.
