Type Of Speaker


Mark is one of the best presenters I have worked with. He has a rare attention to detail and work rate that most other presenters could learn from. He quickly establishes a relationship with the audience and always manages to be funny without being offensive and serious when the occasion requires it.
Awards for Business Limited 

Once again, Mark proved to be a very entertaining host for the evening and was enjoyed be all. He is a joy to work with and we would not hesitate to invite him back to host these awards once again. We would also have no hesitation in recommending him to others. The majority of the tweets about the event were about how funny and entertaining he was. He was excellent.
Chartered Institute of Building 

Mark knows our event well from previous years and is always knowledgeable and helpful – his performance is always warmly welcomed by his audience at the Awards and he is really good to work with. He helps make the Awards Ceremony the success that it is…We very much hope he will be able to do our event again next year.
Police Bravery Awards

Mark was absolutely fantastic and we will definitely eb suggesting him to other clients for their awards.
Hairdressing Business Awards

Mark was fantastic as our awards host…He really resonated with the audience, and obviously spent some time doing his homework on the event and the audience that would be attending. His humour and light hearted but professional approach worked really well and elevated the event to a new level. This is quite a hard event to host but Mark’s approach and control of the audience was just what was required – he really kept their attention. Mark also spent time after the awards ceremony chatting with our guests and generally made himself available, which was really appreciated by all those that attended. He was funny, charismatic and related well to the audience.
Adobe Channel Awards

I would thoroughly recommend Mark as an awards host for corporate events. His fun, vibrant style really helped create an excellent atmosphere, and he had obviously done a lot of research in his own time on the presenters and winners of our awards, as he ad-libbed stories about them throughout the night. He stayed on to celebrate with the winners after the awards, and we were so pleased we booked him.
Visit Chester and Cheshire Annual Awards 

We have worked with Mark over many years and for many different awards ceremonies. He goes above and beyond by researching key members of the audience in advance to give that extra personal touch on the night. He brings a lovely charm and character to any event and is extremely easy to work with. Mark will take your technical script and add his own personal touch to ensure your event stands out from the crowd!
South West Built Environment Awards 

He was fantastic and probably the best host we’ve had in 30 years!
National Tyre Distribution Association Awards

He was excellent. Mark adds a lot to the show – he was funny, had done his homework and everybody loves him!
