Nick was fantastic in keeping attendees engaged across the two long conference days and we received compliments from speakers and attendees alike! Nick is funny, cheeky and creative - he was ... keep reading the perfect fit for our conference and I’d absolutely have him back for future events! Westpac Group
Nick was instrumental in the delivery of 3 highly successful events. Through Nick’s lead, the format of the events was improved to an interactive and relaxed Q&A session rather than a dry presentation, and the guests loved the energy and humour that Nick provided. Personally, I gained confidence with Nick’s support & input. I had a lot of fun working with him.
Nick Bartlett was a brilliant MC and the perfect addition to our La Prairie Caviar PR event! Nick brought structure to the event which was needed as the event took place over a 3 level Penthouse. He had great rapport with Guillaume Brahimi as he interviewed him regarding his 5 course caviar menu. The La Prairie team, top editors and influencers enjoyed Nick’s humour & quick wit throughout the evening. We would highly recommend Nick and we look forward to working with him again on our next high profile event.
Nick’s energy was tireless over the 3-day period, which involved very long days in very hot conditions. His banter was lively, fun and appealing and really worked to attract a lot of people to our activation. He was very quick to pick up the brief and match the brand personality and his improvisation skills are excellent. He has a lovely welcoming tone and a fun but professional sense of humour. We were very happy having Nick on our team.
Nick was fantastic, he managed to keep everyone engaged throughout the day and evening events. He is quick witted, on the ball and an asset to any event. We will definitely be using him again!
Nick was absolutely amazing as our MC! He researched beforehand, got the crowd involved and got his hands dirty. He really helped to make the day, his energy was nonstop! We LOVE him and so did KFC. We will definitely look to use him again in the future. Nailed it!
Nick has a natural ability to engage audiences and draw out client (brand) messages authentically. His seamless conversation between guests and the talent kept the event at pace with a constant flow of interesting content. We wouldn't hesitate to work with Nick in the future.
Nick did such a great job MC-ing the Sydney Relay for Life event. His role involved being able to ad-hoc around other key messaging - which isn't always an easy task. Nick interacted so genuinely with participants, ticked off all the right things to say and presented in a professional, affable and really enthusiastic manner. I'd highly recommend him for your next event!
I attended a client’s conference in which Nick was the MC, and immediately I knew we had to have him host our First Annual Awards Night. Nick’s calmness, bag of ideas on ways to engage the audience, and planning methodology prior to the event gave me the confidence that I was in good hands. Even weeks after the event we are having feedback on how good he was. We are looking forward to having Nick host our future events.
Nick Bartlett was an absolute pleasure to work with, from scoping our conference needs through emceeing the two and a half day conference. A team player, Nick made sure he understood the philosophy of CTO and conference delegates, and the particular direction of conference themes. Bright, energetic and appropriately serious as needed for each of the different segments, Nick ably adapted when plans changed. From convening a discussion panel to our annual awards presentation night, Nick did not disappoint. Our confidence that Nick would stage manage speakers and guests with ease, as well as banter with delegates and sponsors, was fulfilled. I absolutely recommend Nick Bartlett as a professional, likeable and desirable addition to any event.
