Andrew is one of Australia's most in-demand professional MC / facilitators and a respected authority on presentation skills.
A former corporate lawyer, Andrew has brought his casual yet corporate MC style to countless conferences and events over the past 15 years, engaging audiences across Australia and the Asia Pacific region.
Andrew thoroughly researches each client, tailors all his material accordingly and writes his own script notes, yet is well known for his quick wit and ability to think on his feet. He has also become well known for his ability to involve the audience in proceedings, adapt to vastly different audiences and for his improvisational skills.
His unique, intricately researched speaker introductions, his lively conference openings as well as his final night summaries transform a potentially dry conference room into an environment where laughter and learning blend seamlessly.
Andrew is not a comedian, although he uses appropriate humour constantly. Rather, he is a specialist professional MC, so he knows how to make a conference agenda run smoothly and ensure the conference messages are delivered effectively.
Andrew brings a new creativity to your event, creating an atmosphere where learning is easier, as people learn more when they have been having fun, resulting in people gaining better value for their conference dollar.
Andrew Klein has hosted countless events over the years for Westpac, Ernst & Young, Telstra, IBM, LG, Bayer Healthcare, Dymocks, Coca-Cola, Commonwealth Bank, Aged Care Association Australia, Optus and Allianz to name a few.

“I have had Andrew as MC at our annual conference for three years now and he is the first person I book once our dates are locked in. Why? Because he is great to work with, proactive and ens ... keep readingures everything runs smoothly. As an event organiser, it is great to know that Andrew takes an active interest in our event, with a detailed briefing prior to the event, great suggestions on how things can be improved, then actively seeks me out to ensure the next segment is ready to go and that there has been no changes or additions during the event. I am also very impressed with the amount of pre-work he completes to ensure that every introduction is personal, funny and right on the mark, keeping it fresh even when he introduces the MD of our organisation time after time. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Andrew as an MC for any event … I think he amazing both as an individual and an MC!” SUNCORP

Andrew's professionalism to his role as MC is beyond any other MC that I have worked with. He researches thoroughly, personalises every experience, and uses humour brilliantly to inject energy and laughter to the group. Our conferences have been a great success over the years, and much of that is down to the job that Andrew does for us here at Dymocks!”
