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.
Mark did an excellent job. The best yet. He was funny, irreverent and made everyone feel included with his infectious humour. He had clearly done his homework too on the winners as they went up to the stage. We were very pleased. Some great feedback from guests too….We will definitely be booking him again!
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”
