Talking Points

Master of Ceremonies

Andrew is one of Australia’s most in-demand Professional MC / Hosts (both face to face and virtually).

Andrew has brought his casual yet corporate MC style to countless conferences and events over the past 20+ years, engaging audiences across Australia, the Asia Pacific region, South Africa and the USA. Since March 2020, he now also works as required “live” from his home office or local studios.

Andrew thoroughly researches each client, tailors 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 conference 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.

Having worked (pre-Covid19) on several virtual events, appeared on TV many times and presented countless webinars, he is well versed in the world of online events and has now (since Covid) hosted, spoken and trained extensively in the virtual format. See link below.

He is now very comfortable to say he is “Virtually an MC.”

Andrew will partner with you to bring 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.

“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

“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!”


“I have asked Andrew Klein to MC 3 of our National Conferences and he's always a crowd favourite. His well-placed humour and wit, coupled with outstanding organisational skills have ensured each conference to be a success!”


“Andrew was an excellent MC and we would definitely have him back at our next conference. He was very responsive and very understanding when it came to the challenges and changes had to deal with at the last minute”.


Thanks Andrew. Wonderful. It made my job so much easier knowing that our MC had everything under control"
