Lehmo had the audience in stitches and had perfectly tailored his performance for the group. I would highly recommend him
Lehmo… you had 300 accountants and guests in stitches from the moment you walked on stage at our National Congress in Melbourne. You have a great ability to work the room and get maximum enjoyment for all. We have had so much positive feedback on your performance and hope you can come back again soon! Thanks a million!
The room of over 500 guests in hysterics and was undoubtedly a highlight of the evening! Extremely funny and appropriate performance, lovely guy and a pleasure to work with.
Lehmo was an excellent MC and fitted perfectly for our event. He was easy to work with and was flexible with the continual changes to the run sheet.
I just wanted to say a big thank you for Wednesday night on behalf of the Deloitte Human Capital Consulting team! It is a hard act to engage virtually over a Zoom audience to a large group of people who have been in lockdown for over 100 days, and you really reached our diverse audience with appropriate humour and impact. We have received so much great feedback across the team and that is was the most fun/funniest virtual event they have been to.
From the first 3 minutes, you had the full attention of all 430 guests, had them all laughing and engaged! We look forward to hopefully working together again in the future!
He was a perfect fit for our audience and they all had very positive feedback. A great mix of being funny/entertaining but also a good MC for our Awards Dinner to keep it moving along.
Lehmo was a hit from the minute he took the stage. He brought the event in effectively and on time. His short comedy spot had the audience in stitches.
1000 guests were thrilled by the quality of professionalism & entertainment Lehmo brought to the evening. One of our best MC’s yet!
Lehmo managed to turn our potentially mediocre engineering awards night into an interactive, entertaining and super fun event.
Lehmo was awesome. He was so professional and funny and his Covid anecdotes were so on point. I thought he was brilliant and so many people said as much in the days after. He was 100% brilliant- thank you!
We had a blast working with Lehmo and would not hesitate to book him again! He was the ultimate professional to work with - funny, engaging and worked his content to match the event narrative. Nothing was too much trouble and he always had a smile on his face.
