We ran a national conference where many of the delegates did not know each other on a personal level. By using Nic Yates to design and run some appropriate activities, participants developed ... keep reading a great rapport in a fun and less structured environment. We received great feedback on the activities via the surveys post-event. We would certainly use Nic Yates in the future. National Australia Bank
On behalf of the MEA Victoria functions committee, I would like to sincerely thank you for being a wonderful Master of Ceremonies at the Annual Awards Dinner held at Central Pier. The functions committee is constantly striving to deliver unique and exciting events to our members and you certainly assisted us in accomplishing that goal. We are thrilled that you were able to work with us on this prestigious event and appreciate the time you spent in preparing for the awards which resulted in a most entertaining and professional delivery on the night. The evening was a total success and we have had nothing but positive feedback on all aspects of the event.
It has been a pleasure to work with you and we have felt at every point that we were in capable and professional hands. Your ability to focus everyone's enthusiasm and then kick it up a notch was brilliant.
Your humour blended excellently with the more serious items on our program and you helped us achieve a sense of continuity through the plenary sessions.
Nic delivered a faultless performance which was entertaining, witty and interactive.
