Geoff Paine is a freelance writer, performer, MC and producer of corporate events, training films and TV and stage productions through his company, Ready to Roll.
As an MC, Geoff's there to keep the event moving, the audience alert and make sure the important information gets through. He has worked as a professional improvisor (winning the national titles in Sydney) and specialises in making live events live.
The skills involved are being able to read the audience - do they need a lift in energy, the chance to speak or ask questions, to feel included in the proceedings or brought back to a quiet focus for the next session - and leading them there so the event flows.
And being on hand to deal with glitches like technical issues or a speaker running late or not showing up; Geoff's dealt with all these eventualities and can act like a human 'No More Gaps' - filling the dead spots and lifting the mood accordingly.
Both engaging and entertaining. ... keep reading Officeworks
Geoff's experience enabled us to take a very bland topic and turn it into an event which was concise, informative and really hit the mark.
Geoff did an amazing job of bringing our event to life using both video and live interaction. Most conference days are long and boring, but none of our 300+ crew even thought about sleep. It was smiles all around at the end of the day. Thanks Geoff!
