Malcolm’s imagination and performance skills helped BP design and deliver a safety learning event that was entertaining, engaging and effective. Malcolm is a master at setting the right mood and guiding an audience on its way to the intended outcome. A total pleasure Malcolm – thanks!” (Aug 2014)

Liana Cobby - BP Developments Australia Pty Ltd

Malcolm is the consummate professional and his ability to keep the conference running smoothly and create an energetic and fun atmosphere was what made the event such a great success. He added a level of professionalism and fun that we haven’t had nor experienced before. On the final night he also delivered a comedy hoax.  The information that Malcolm gleaned throughout the few days he spent with us was perfectly woven into the hoax and had everyone in raptures of laughter. (Aug 2014)

Steve Sanders – Vice President Association of School Business Administrators SA/NT

I knew that choosing the right MC would 'make or break' the tone for the day...thankfully we chose Malcolm. His research into our organisation along with his interaction and humour left the room buzzing and delegates loved him. Thanks so much Malcolm. (Aug 2014)

Marcia Barclay, 'Read Write Now' CEO

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! People have been raving about the event non-stop. You were a smashing hit and just the perfect 'ingrediant' we needed! (July 2014)

Dee Faulkner, Communication and Culture Manager, GESB

Thank you so much Malcolm. You certainly made a lasting impression...I was sitting with some conference delegates three days later and we were still laughing thinking about your hoax. One gentlemen even told me he had never laughed so hard in all his life. Simply wonderful. (July 2014)

Janet Hewitt, Tourism Development Manager, Ipswich City Council Victoria

Malcolm created a new character for our 'Paint & Panel Conference' for smash repairers. His European 'crash repair expert' was totally spot on, brilliantly received and thoroughly researched. Not only was the presentation very funny, it also effectively hammered home the main themes of the day. (May 2014)

Sam Street, Editor, Australasian Paint & Panel May

Hiring Malcolm for a corporate hoax to motivate my sales team was the best career decision I have made to date. Not only did he have everyone laughing and engaged, but he also managed to get across a crucial motivational message that reinvigorated the team’s excitement around a product portfolio that had preciously struggled to meet budget.

Malcolm is a true professional who is not only a pleasure to work with but also an outstanding entertainer. (January 2014)  

Tessa Busbridge - Marketting Manager IDEXX Laboratories Victoria


Malcolm's skills as an MC and presenter were outstanding. He absolutely made the difference between having a good conference and an exceptional conference! It was fantastic to have someone who understands our business, acknowledges our work, and at the same time enables us to laugh at ourselves.

He brought energy, vitality and humour, and effortlessly made the conference flow. The feedback from staff was exceptionally positive, and left all participants wanting Malcolm to return again next year! (December 2013) 

Mark Richards - District Director Department for Child Protection & Family Support WA

Well what can I say, other than a BIG thank you for your wonderful contribution in making this years conference on the Gold Coast another huge success. In fact some Franchisee's rate you so highly they are saying you were the highlight of the conference! Your professional MC work and also your efforts in setting the tone and participation at the social events was greatly appreciated.

Joe Siriani - Smartline Director Victoria

I just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH.

You did a wonderful job and so professional. I don't have the words to describe how much I appreciated your humour and empathy etc. Absolutely brilliant.

 Sue - Chairperson Social Work alumni UWA

Malcolm was fantastic, he did a superb job and we were amazed at how well he knew what was going on and what the issues were, very clever using the information we provided to create what he did.
Once again many many thanks to Malcolm for an excellent job!


Thankyou for the laughter you created for the Hyundai Team. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed your sense of humour and many have phoned to say how wonderful the night was and commented on some of your quotes. You really helped make the night a huge success.


This was the second time Woodside has utilised Malcolm's services and he certainly did not disappoint. It was very, very clever and extremely funny: a most polished performance.


The best speaker was the loud, brash 'American' whom we fell for hook, line and sinker.

Thank you so much Malcolm for tailoring your presentation to the specific requirements of our group. The National Conference delegates founf extremely funny and entertaining - even more so once they realised it was a Hoax!

Thanks Albany...

Well I had the absolute pleasure of MC-ing last weekend's Community concert in Albany with WASO, the Waifs and many more incredibly talented folk. I have to admit I was a tad gobsmacked both by the talent and the 12,000 to 15,000 people who rocked up and heckled me when I had to bring the night to a close. Pretty darn funny.

Mind hooks ahoy

In spite of the six thousand manuals on child-raising in the bookstore, child-raising is still a dark continent and no-one really knows anything. You just need a lot of love and a lot of luck - and of course, courage.

Mr Bill Cosby.

Bill is right. Sometimes we over complicate this kid raising caper. We do need a lot of luck and a lot of love.

 Being a mum and dad in school holidays can be downright challenging at times. It's the time I have to pay particular attention to how I parent. Often, particularly when the kids are driving me nuts, I need to stop, unhook myself from the unhelpful thoughts whizzing about my head and breathe deeply. Give it a try - right now - 5 long, slow deep breaths. Don't worry no one is watching.

It's easy to forget that our thoughts are not us. Their just random thought's drifting on by. We have around 70,000 thought's each and every day and isn't that exhausting in itself? Thoughts are perfectly natural. It's when we get hooked by them, stuck or trapped that they becomes unhelpful. Or is that just me!

The kick arse joy of failure

But what if I fail?

The answer to the what if question is, YOU WILL.

A better question might be, "after I fail, what then?"

Well, if you've chosen well, after you fail you will be one step closer to succeeding, you will be wiser and stronger and you almost certainly be more respected by all of those that are afraid to try.

Seth Godin

I'm a big fan of Seth and he will be here in Oz in the coming weeks. Such a bugger I can't get to Melbourne or Sydney but alas. (www.sethgodin.com)

I'm guessing the above quote was not directed at parents but it applies to us mum and dads just as well. Personally I still feel I have 'failed' at being a good Dad from time to time, but thankfully these days I know that's absolutely okay. As Seth says, that brings me one step closer to getting it right.
