“Andrew’s active involvement in our business to understand our needs and people, is what differentiates him from other speakers and MC’s. Onsite Andrew’s observations and insights on the overall conference experience for our people goes beyond the brief of his role. His ability to communicate in an engaging and uplifting way to his audience sets him apart. He is now part of the fabric of our organisation balancing his professionalism with building strong personal relationships, so much so our people look forward to seeing Andrew each year and our executives advocate him as our MC.”


“Andrew just hosted our annual conference for the 6th year running…. and we wouldn’t use anyone else! And it’s not just his ability to MC – which he does brilliantly – but his homework on the speakers and willingness to be involved in activities, to the point where he is now ‘one of us.’ His humour (always appropriate to the audience) is also appreciated. Surveys of our franchisees and staff consistently rate him 9 out of 10 (he’d be a 10 but we don’t want him getting a big head!) with one commenting ‘how good is this guy!’ To answer the question – he is good, very good!!”


“Outstanding! Many of the attendees listed you as a highlight of the 2010 HSS Expo event! Thank you for jumping in wherever needed and providing some much-needed humour throughout the day! It’s always wonderful working with you.”


“Thanks for doing a fantastic job both on and off the stage. The feedback on your MC’ing has been superb. It was a pleasure to work with you. We will certainly keep you in mind for future events and would be happy to provide any references or testimonials for you.”


“Because there was a lot of information to be absorbed, it was important to inject some light-hearted moments into the agenda and you achieved this splendidly. It is not an easy task to keep people motivated and interested over such a long period and your professionalism and attention to detail throughout the conference was very much appreciated.”


“Thank you for the wonderful way you facilitated our recent Star Forum conference. Your authority and vitality kept us all attentive, energised and focused throughout some long sessions. The personalized introduction you prepared for every speaker was appreciated by all. Andrew, it was a pleasure working with you.”


“We were incredibly impressed with the manner in which you managed to hold a very difficult format together so seamlessly. Your performance was superb.”


“Incredibly professional. You turned a fairly serious topic, with serious speakers into a pleasurable meeting for the doctors.”


“One of the key determinants of a successful conference is the professionalism and energy of the MC. With Andrew Klein’s preparation and humour, speakers are at ease and ready to perform well, and the vibe of the event is lifted. With Andrew’s contribution, the Financial Planning Association’s 2010 National Conference was a great success.”


“Thank you for being MC at our recent conference for our Legal team. Within seconds of commencing you turned a room of 150 semi-sceptics in to enthusiastic participants. Your energy & enthusiasm, not to mention fun activities won them over and set our conference off to a great start. People immediately relaxed and the ‘Oh no not another conference!!’ feeling was immediately dissipated. Your humour and ability to engage the team made the conference one of the best ever held by Telstra Legal.”


“Andrew – I have only received positive feedback – you did a great job.”


“Brilliant. I cannot explain how well Andrew handled EVERYTHING. He was amazing and we shall definitely be booking him for our next conference. So helpful as well. Will be recommending him to everyone I meet.”


“Andrew has helped us deliver a number of fantastic conferences which received outstanding feedback from our teams and clients. The level of enthusiasm and engagement from all the participants was at an all time high and his mix of humour and time management lead to very successful events. I would strongly recommend Andrew for your internal and client event – the presentation skills session is also a must and had a marked impact on the quality of our sessions.”


“You did an outstanding job. The franchise owners welcomed you with open arms.”


“Once again, Andrew delivered a sterling performance as MC of our 2011 annual conference. This is the third time in a row we have used Andrew, and he once again managed to come up with new and exciting material. Our team love him and expect to see him again next year, and we have no intention of disappointing them.”


“Thank you for your role as MC host for our National Roadshow. You ensured that the messages about our new products and their features were effectively communicated to the attendees and you did it in an exciting and entertaining manner that did not bore our audience. The event was a resounding success.”


“You were terrific and a large part of the success of the conference. Your professional yet casual approach was just what the event (and organisers!) needed. The time you took to prepare and learn about our business / speakers really showed and was clearly appreciated by the audience and speakers alike – thank you for your approach to the entire event.”


“Your warmth, wit and enthusiasm helped make sure it was the most successful roadshow we have had to date. Thanks again for the professionalism, I look forward to working together again.”


“Brilliant job. You were at all times professional, well organised and you achieved just the right balance of control with your relaxed friendly and open manner.”


“Andrew – you were brilliant. Your energy, humour and professionalism helped make this a great conference. Corporate conferences of this nature can often be quite sterile and low in oomph but your involvement really helped facilitate the learning process and allowed us to effectively deliver our key messages. Again, many thanks.”


“Andrew, thank you for MC’ing our recent BPA Leader’s Conference. Your professionalism, energy and enthusiasm, not to mention your humour, helped us make this one of our most successful conferences.”


“Many thanks once again for a job well done! We were really happy with your performance at the Bangkok Kick-Off. Our event wouldn’t have been such a success without you.”


“A very special thank you again – after 5 years in a row now with us. You are a STAR. Your professionalism, humour, attention to detail, ethics and passion for what you do is to be admired. I know from the moment I get your text message that you have arrived at the conference venue prior to the commencement of the conference is a AAHH! moment for me, as the conference manager. Now we are under control in a sense and I can get on with putting out the little fires that crop up with a conference like ours! Our Members love you.”


“Thanks for your efforts coordinating the running of our 2011 national conference. Your quick wit and thoughtful research on the presenters and others, linked the conference together with your witty introductions. This gave a light-hearted interlude between presenters and I feel helped to keep the audience involved and attending on all days.”


“Professional yet entertaining – the best way to describe Andrew! From his personalised introductions for our presenters to dressing up for our themed dinner, Andrew’s prior research turned 320 sceptical delegates into engaged people ready to work and play hard for 3 days. Our delegates positive feedback was being received from the moment our conferences commenced, so much so, we have already booked Andrew for next year.”


“From the moment Andrew welcomed our delegates to the 2011 Securitor Convention in Singapore, he had them in the palm of his hands. From his self deprecating wit to the energy in his presentation, Andrew lifted the mood, energy level and feel of the room. Particular highlights for me were Andrew’s rhyming summary of our time together at our gala dinner and his ability to get 300 delegates, (average age 50+) to participate in chair-airobics – priceless. I would be happy to commend Andrew to anyone looking for an energy boost at their next function.”


“Andrew, your attention to detail was amazing. You are clever, quick, witty and a consummate professional to work with. Our conference crew and management team really rate you!”


“Andrew – you made our Conference ‘happen’ – I received so much positive feedback about you it was almost boring hearing it in the end!! They all loved you and deservedly so – you have a job for life with our conferences. I am still laughing at some of your one-liners – absolute magic. The conference will be remembered for the way in which you held it all together and made everyone feel good. I am indeed indebted to you.”

OAMPS Insurance

“I have received excellent feedback from conference delegates, both advisers and sponsors. Many delegates specifically praised the energy and vibe that you created and have requested that you join us again next year (for the third time!!!). Once again, your involvement exceeded our expectations. Thank you for again helping us make our conference such a success.”


“Thank you for helping to make our celebration a truly memorable evening. You brought a great sense of timing and professionalism to the night and achieved the right balance of humour and engagement. The interview with our visiting international executives was terrific. The way it worked was a reflection of the time you put into preparing the night.”


Andrew, as our conference MC, you were absolutely fantastic at keeping everything on track and on time as well as being extremely entertaining. In the past, we have generally used internal people to co-ordinate the sessions but you certainly added a level of professionalism and entertainment which is why it was such a success. Your Zoo Safari was a huge hit with every one of our employees who had a great time working within their teams to complete the challenges you had set. The feedback has been phenomenal on what a difference you made to this conference over previous ones. I hope you are available when we look at planning our next conference or event.”

PRYSMIAN Cables & Systems

“Many thanks Andrew – you did a simply fantastic job for us.”


“This is the second time we have used Andrew to MC / facilitate at an EMC conference and on both occasions he put in a great deal of effort up front to research the company, our culture & business and the details on the personnel who were presenting. This resulted in a performance from him in Bangkok, that was not only highly entertaining and very amusing, but also had the audience feel as though he was part of our team. His style is lively and fast paced which suited our situation perfectly. On one of the evenings he ran a brilliant quiz as a team building exercise that was a huge success and was a real talking point with the team the next day… I would thoroughly recommend Andrew and his team to any organisation who wants to liven up their event in a unique, entertaining and professional way.”


“Andrew was great. Extremely professional, perfect for the audience and really did his homework about the client, company and the individuals who were attending. A rapport was built with the client which is fantastic. I would definitely use Andrew again.”


“We engaged Andrew in 2011 as MC for the first ever bringing together of our whole QLD team. From first discussion, Andrew worked with us to understand our goals for the day and the way we wanted the message to be delivered, adding value to the agenda and timing along the way. Come show time, Andrew’s performance was first class – engaging the team and keeping energy levels high from start to finish with a room of 450 bankers which is quite some achievement! The feedback from the day has been stellar and is a tribute to how it was brought together and the role Andrew played in that.”


“Like last year, you once again delivered on our brief which was to keep the Convention on track, all while adding in a mix of humour that did not offend. You did both with ease.”


“Although we have been running conferences for years, we had up until now never used a professional MC. Having Andrew made a huge difference to both the efficiency of the conference and the feel and atmosphere. He was easy to work with, professional, funny and highly adaptable. It was genius to ask each speaker something small or personal about themselves to use as an introduction. On the day he kept our packed schedule running like clockwork and it was obvious that he had done a lot of research and preparation prior to the day. Excellent, could not find any fault!”


“Andrew did an outstanding job and really got the conference off to a fantastic start and continued with a consistent coverage that had humour, depth and brought together our clients and staff beautifully. I would recommend Andrew to future people that are looking for a professional MC that works well to understand your people and clients.”


“I would have absolutely no hesitation as describing Andrew as the best corporate host I ever worked with in more than 12 years of running corporate functions in Australia and Britain. Grand praise indeed, but absolutely deserved! Andrew’s preparation for this event was just fantastic. He went out of his way both prior to and during the conference to understand our organisation, people and culture, and used this knowledge to unite the speakers and the audience, and build a fantastic, collaborative atmosphere and rapport amongst a group of more than 260 employees, the majority of whom had never met. In addition to MC-ing the formal part of the conference, he ran team building events and hosted the gala dinner. Andrew’s ability to put people at ease, make them laugh, make them think, relax them, get them thinking and involved during the longer, more technical session was without doubt a key reason for the success of the conference, and feedback from evaluation forms submitted at the conclusions of the event bears this out.”

EMC (Australia/New Zealand)

“You were great and really demonstrated the value that a professional, fun and imaginative MC can add to large corporate events.”


“If you’re organising any type of corporate function, you can’t go past Andrew. Andrew’s approach is clearly based on the principle of ‘preparation is the key to success’, as he leaves nothing to chance. He has a unique ability not only to create, but also to deliver. Our conference was a rare occasion where every one of the staff raved about the facilitator.”


“Andrew made an enormously important contribution to the success of our conference.
He successfully incorporated the goals and themes of our program, as well as corporate culture, in his hosting of this important event. He was professional, amusing, and quick-witted. The research and preparation that he invested was very obvious allowing the event to be taken to another level. Many thanks Andrew for your commitment to excellence and fun!”


“Thank you for compering the event at our recent Healthcare conference. 300 people entered the room not knowing quite what to expect and 300 people left raving about the entire event. You carried the night in a way which nobody from inside the company could have come close to. My personal thanks again for your highly professional work.”


“Andrew – you were excellent! The conference feedback was great – with a large part of the success due to your kind self!! Your fresh, light hearted approach kept everyone involved without people feeling threatened or embarrassed.”


“Andrew, from my point of view, I was wrapped with the job you did. Your professionalism and ability to think on your feet made our lives so much easier. With this kind of event there are always going to be last minute changes and fine tuning to be done. The fact that you had taken the time to really familiarize yourself with our event and adapt to any changes in the format (all with a cheerful attitude) helped to make this a success. Thanks for a great job.”


“Thank you so much for your work at the franchise conference, and behind the scenes, on assisting making our conference the success that it was. Feedback was very positive, so positive in fact that we all agreed to use you again, if you are available, next year. Once again a huge thank you.”


“You did an absolutely fantastic job on all three occasions in all three States and the feedback from our franchise owners was indeed very positive…a fact of which you can be justly proud. Clearly you were in tune with the audience and clearly they related to you….Well done.”


“Nothing but great things, you did an outstanding job!”


“When Andrew came on stage the crowd from 2 years ago remembered him and knew what they would be in for; ‘a professional with quirk!’ Andrew gave a unique edge to a rather serious convention and literally had everyone standing up and paying attention and reacting just in the way you’d expect a crowd would when entertained by the likes of Klein!!. A job well done and enjoyed Andrew” ; the feedback has been fantastic!”


“It is an ongoing challenge to find professional speakers for industry conferences who can communicate effectively with their audience, both on and off-stage. Andrew Klein is one of those unique people. Not only is Andrew an excellent MC and entertainer, but he also has the ability to facilitate workshops and open forums. Our association has hired Andrew a number of times because of these abilities. In addition, his pre-event research and planning and contagious sense of humour mean that he quickly endears himself to audiences.”


“The feedback has been positive beyond our expectations which is due in part to the manner in which you discharged your role as MC. It was the first time that we have engaged an independent party to carry out this role and our selection of yourself was due to what we saw of your performance as MC of the FCA conferences and recommendations from conference organising professionals. We were not disappointed by our decision as your contribution was fantastic and contributed greatly to the success of the event.”


“It is now the 3rd time that we have been involved with working with Andrew Klein in the capacity of MC, everyone of those with the same acknowledgements from the delegates, “Bring him back, that MC guy was fantastic,” “he is funny and seems to relate to our business”. Andrew’s approach has been one of understanding, and adding his own flavour to the role of MC at our conference. In the past we have tried to MC ourselves, but after Andrew’s latest efforts we will always use an MC – and if our franchisees have any say in it, more than likely they will ask us to bring Andrew back. Anyone who is looking for an energetic and involved MC, I would be happy to recommend Andrew Klein.”


“Thank you so much for your contribution to delivering a smooth, very well-received event. It was the first time a professional MC had been used for the forum and everyone noticed – and appreciated – the difference. We’ve received lots of compliments on the MC and from my point of view it was fantastic knowing that the afternoon was in capable hands and that I had one fewer
thing to worry about.”


“Thank you Andrew for all of your help! You were sensational and the feedback I’ve received has also been extremely positive. Having a professional, external MC this year has made the world of difference.”


“Thanks so much for the great job. There were many people who commented on how great you were and how relevant you were for the celebrations.”


“Thanks for the great job you did at our 2011 conference. Those that had attended our previous conference were thrilled to learn that you were once again going to be our MC.
Your energy and humour certainly kept participants interested and energised which is not always easy given the material you had to work with. Certainly the summary of the conference that you made at the dinner was very clever and very, very funny and had all of us laughing heartily as well as really setting the right mood for us.”


“Andrew, I would like to personally congratulate you on yet another exemplary performance’ as MC for our conference. Like you did last year, you have lifted the bar. The feedback on your performance from this end was amazing.”


“Andrew brought an exceedingly professional and entertaining style to his role as MC at our Aged Care Assessment Program conference. We were delighted with his ability to engage the audience from the beginning and then sustain such a high level of positive energy throughout the whole conference. Both conference delegates and presenters have commended Andrew on the wonderful rapport he developed with his audience – a rapport that generated an extremely interactive and fun response.”


“As always Andrew, a masterful job. The only feedback I have is good – thank you. I believe that maintaining flow and interest (and introducing some humour and levity into an otherwise fairly dry affair) is critical, and you do that job very, very well.”


“A fantastic job. You built up a rapport with the delegates quickly and with respect of the difficult time that we are going through. Thank you particularly for helping me manage the senior team and getting them to focus on the last minute sessions that we had to put together, a very hard task!”


“Your role was so important to keep the day flowing and your extra duties of introducing speakers and facilitating the Q&A were much appreciated. You had everyone entertained as well as informed. You made my job that much easier knowing I had a professional keeping the event flowing.”


“Feedback was fantastic – an appropriate level of formal, keeping the show on the road, with the informal humour and insight into the participants. Small business events can often be deadly and I wanted to create an entertaining, as well as educational event. You created the right balance to achieve this.”

Victorian Government – Office of Small Business

“We have now worked with Andrew many times, in fact ever since he had hair!! Over this time, we have been delighted with the professionalism, intellect, humour, passion and energy that he has been able to deliver and engage to the various audiences. Andrew is amazingly quick-witted, can deliver a funny anecdote about the night before and then host a serious business panel with professionalism and enthusiasm. Andrew’s warmth both on and off the stage has seen him adopted by our franchisees and his humour and communication is always tasteful and inclusive of everyone in the room. To get an audience to feel part of one team, have fun, and also deliver key messages, Andrew has proven to be an asset at all of the conferences for which we have worked together.”


“Andrew was the perfect host. He had the right mix of humour and timing to ensure that the evening ran smoothly. His enthusiasm ensured that the crowd was kept entertained and focused on the competition aspect of the night. We have had some extremely positive feedback from the night which was largely due to Andrew’s skill at keeping things light-hearted and constantly moving. He researched our audience and provided a performance that was appropriate and endearing. I would highly recommend him for any other corporate MC job and found him motivated, personable and easy to work with.”


“Once again, the decision to have Andrew MC our National Dealers Conference has paid off in many ways.
The delegates’ feedback was better than ever before due mainly to the level of professionalism mixed with humour that Andrew adds to an event. Andrew worked with the management team well in advance to plan the finer details and throughout the 3 day conference spent many hours ensuring the delegates were getting real value for money from their conference. The tone that Andrew set through his expertise allowed us to focus on the real issues facing our group.”


“Despite some initial scepticism from certain quarters on the need to use an external MC, you blew away all the doubters and everybody was extremely impressed by your skills and capability. Personally, it was great to work with you – I have never met an MC who has been so thorough and diligent with their preparation and your professionalism shines through. Needless to say, the next time I need an MC, I know where I’m heading!”


“Brilliant; exceptional; engaging; energetic; his enthusiasm flowed through the conference; very very funny; he made it all come together; professional, clear and upbeat.” (2011 Client evaluation comments)


“Andrew brought a level of professionalism to MC’ing our annual conference, which we did not realise we were missing…..until he did the event. He kept the conference flowing and on time, and used his humour to keep the team engaged. His affable personality made him easy to work with. Andrew’s participation was highly ranked by our team as being a core contributor to the success of our conference.”


“We have received nothing but positive feedback to the conference and in particular to your efforts as MC, there is no doubt your mix of being able to keep us focused and on time, while having us all laughing was pivotal in the success of the conference. See you next year.”


“Andrew, thank you for your involvement with our product launch.
Your interaction with our staff was fantastic and it made a possible dull day turn into positive vibe and an interactive session. I look forward to working with you again.”


“Andrew, thanks for all your help keeping our conference on track and making it an interesting and memorable day. We were concerned that our content was very dry and we might have trouble keeping our people engaged. Your energy and enthusiasm helped make the day a great success.”


“Andrew was absolutely amazing! Everyone loved him, both Caltex and Starlight and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. I’ve never seen someone able to talk for so long, with no complaints, with such passion and humour. He definitely made a lot of people laugh on Martin Place [a tough crowd] and kept the spirits high of all our volunteers on such a horrifically long day.

Thank you thank you thank you!”


“Having worked several times with Andrew I cannot recommend him highly enough. He thoroughly researches the client, he’s a great MC who runs a punctual and professional show while always incorporating humour. He gets any message across without offending anyone – no matter how delicate that message might be. The best part about working with Andrew is the ease of it all. He’s totally unflappable and totally organized.”


“Andrew, the feedback has been very positive, citing your ability to “lift” the energy levels throughout the long two days as exceptional. From my perspective, you used a range of techniques including humour to enable the participants to relate to the presenters – some of whom were very senior executives. I will certainly call on you again to reconnect with the team.”
