Event Hosting

John has often acted as an entertaining host at Awards dinners, or as a conference anchor, facilitator and MC. He is happy to “take charge” of an entire conference and “run the show”. His duties have included liaising with venue and a/v staff, welcoming delegates, introducing speakers, and generally ensuring the smooth running of the whole event with his trademark humour and wit! (Take a look at some Case Studies from previous events.)


With a good brief, John’s lively immersive approach ensures he keeps delegates involved and energy levels high to help deliver on conference aims.  (As an ex-teacher he is used to making sure those at the back pay attention!) John has also chaired Q&A sessions and interviewed senior executives on stage as part of his hosting duties.  As a bonus he is able to summarise results and draw together action points and circulate these to delegates after the event to aid implementation of the event’s findings.

“Wow, what a fabulous contribution and impact you made to our EMEA conference in Lisbon!

Without exception everyone has said what a brilliant job you did! You truly were the glue that made everything stick together, keeping energy levels high and the momentum going! It was our best ever conference – of that I am convinced – and you played a big part in making that happen. You have set a high standard for all our future conferences!”
