Whatever your event, I can compère it with professionalism, style and humour. I will make whatever announcements you wish, attract the attention of your audience, introduce your entertainers, draw your raffle, run your auction etc etc…

I am available to MC/compère for

  • Concerts
  • Shows
  • Charity Events

  • Fêtes and fairs
  • Gala evenings

When acting as a compère rather than a Toastmaster,  I am able to adapt my clothing to suit the style of your event – whether you require the formal Toastmaster Livery,  a Tuxedo, a Lounge Suit, Casual  or Themed Clothing…I am happy to dress according to  your requirements.
