Andrew’s Services

Conference MC

Andrew is one of Australia’s most in-demand Professional MCs.

Andrew has brought his casual yet corporate MC style to countless conferences and events over the past 20 years, engaging audiences across Australia, the Asia Pacific region, South Africa and the USA.

Andrew thoroughly researches each client, tailors his material accordingly and writes his own script notes, yet is well known for his quick wit and ability to think on his feet.

He has also become well known for his ability to involve the audience in proceedings, adapt to vastly different audiences and for his improvisational skills.

His unique, intricately researched speaker introductions, his lively conference openings as well as his final night conference summaries transform a potentially dry conference room into an environment where laughter and learning blend seamlessly.​

Andrew is not a comedian, although he uses appropriate humour constantly. Rather, he is a specialist Professional MC, so he knows how to make a conference Agenda run smoothly and ensure the conference messages are delivered effectively.

The comments from his impressive list of clients (see testimonials) are testament to his prior planning and unique style of delivery.​

Andrew brings a new creativity to your event, creating an atmosphere where learning is easier… as people learn more when they have been having fun… resulting in people gaining better value for their conference dollar.​

"Honestly, Andrew is the best in the business. In my 14 years managing corporate events, he remains my absolute favourite MC to deal with. Yes, of course.... there are plenty of corporate MC's out there, but the reality is that the majority of them are hard work behind the scenes. Not Andrew. He is incredibly professional, takes the time to actually LISTEN to the brief, goes above and beyond with his research and always delivers to the highest standard. Quick witted, highly intelligent and just a joy to deal with. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up".

"The man is a genius and is the most involved MC we have ever had. He knows our group so well that he is now considered part of the Dymocks franchise family. If you need a considerate, intelligent, witty, hilarious MC, then I cannot recommend Andrew highly enough".

"Where do I start? Andrew is a consummate professional and second time running I don’t know how I could ever run a conference without him again! He 100% engages with the group and is now very much a part of it.  Every one of our big extended NMB family loves him, but none more than I! As our events get bigger, my job gets more difficult but Andrew helps me to bring it all together on the day".

"Yesterday we had Andrew come and share with our clients his "Life's a Pitch" session. Having known Andrew for near on ten years and having seen him speak publicly on numerous occasions I had high expectations. Even with those expectations Andrew exceeded them. Feedback from our clients included comments on how engaging Andrew is as a presenter, and how relevant the content was. What I love about Andrew is that so much can be learnt by observing how he does it - how he talks without notes, how his slides are humorous and engaging but they never prevent you from listening to what he's saying - and how he makes everyone in a room feel like he is talking to them personally. If you want to know more about increasing your engagement with your customers, members, stakeholders, volunteers, or staff I couldn't recommend Andrew more highly".

"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 12 of the annual conferences for which we have worked together"

"Andrew’s active involvement in our business to understand our needs and our 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."

"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 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"

"The level of professionalism that resulted from your involvement and the response of our delegates to your style ultimately delivered significant value to Ernst & Young. Our delegates were fully engaged in the conference messages from the outset and I believe your involvement was a key factor in achieving this"

The ‘Guinness’​ Record for the best presenter I saw last year.

Each year through my conference work, I am lucky enough to see a lot of brilliant presenters. Last year was no exception. But the best presenter I witnessed last year was not at a conference. It was in a pub. My family and I travelled to Ireland over Christmas (we had...

I recently went to see the Freddie Mercury movie “Bohemian Rhapsody” (loved it by the way, thanks for asking!). Much like Queen in their prime, critics have thumbed their noses at it, but audiences are hooked. One thing the movie shows is the way in which Mercury and...
