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

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.

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.

 WOODSIDE


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!

Respct the Wee folk

 

So said the wonderful Ms Aretha Franklin.

This applies especially with the shadow people we encounter every day, the people we hardly notice, pay little attention to and/or ignore (consciously or not)

Lately I've been facilitating a lot of conferences, and while most delegates are fantastic, you can guarantee that 10% of them will be an absolute pain in the arse for whatever reason.

They will disrespect the band, the bar and wait staff, ignore the tech Crew and give venue staff a hard time.


They fail to understand that everything, everyone, every event is inter connected.

So can I suggest that at your next visit to your lunch bar, cafe, when attending your next conference, dinner, awards night, whatever it is, take the time to thank the 'nobody's,' the anawin, the hidden folk.

They have more power and influence (good and bad) than you will ever know.

And yes, behind the scenes, back stage or in the greenroom, they know exactly what the deal is and trust me, word and deeds spreads fast.

So if you want your next coffee, lunch, Conference to kick arse, then take a few minutes to say thanks to the little people in the shadows.

It takes sod all time but trust me it will makes one hell of a difference.

It's time to start paying attention to the little things hidden in plain sight.


Rock on good people.

Malcolm.
