Feedback
“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 ensures 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

COMMONWEALTH BANK

“I cannot recommend Andrew Klein highly enough! We have used Andrew to MC our Dymocks conferences for the last five years, and each year he gets better and better! 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!”
