Richard was the perfect choice for hosting the Design Excellence Awards. His performance was warm, inclusive, authoritative and pretty well flawless. Loulaki Blue

Excellent. Richard was well prepared, extremely professional and a pleasure to work with.

Connections Event Management Pty Ltd

Richard is the consummate presenter. He is meticulous in his preparation; a polished professional, who seems to speak directly to you, with warmth and sincerity, no matter how many others there are in the audience.

Facet Management Pty Ltd

Richard's tone, speech content and delivery style were very appropriate for the evening. He had obviously researched the topic and his comments were empathetic to the purpose of the evening, the presentation of the awards. The audience reaction was extremely positive and his input certainly added to the event, as did his gracious and willing participation in assisting the Minister in handing out the media awards.

A true professional who made life so much easier for us. I've been waxing lyrical about him to anyone who will listen. The client also thought he was a delight. Warm, approachable, charming, professional and a very proactive MC.

Showcase Events

Richard provided two presentations on the same subject and was thoroughly prepared. He presented exactly the right material at the right level. He had an excellent relaxed style which suited his subject material perfectly.

High as a Keyte Pty Ltd

Richard is as always the easiest person I have every had the privilege of working with. He is always punctual, does his 'homework', reads briefing notes, asks questions if needed, is courteous, well liked and is like a member of the family - which is why we have used him for years now! This year he was able to correct a script malfunction made by another presenter and the manner he did this in made the major sponsor ask for his business card for future events!

Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia

Our event was an amazing success and much can be attributed to Richard's contribution. He controlled the discussion extremely well and his relaxed approach meant our panel members were comfortable to convey key information. Thanks again for such a professional facilitation - 10/10!

Thanks for your facilitation of our Forum last week. It was excellent. There has been very positive feedback from staff and from a number of the external participants, and one has started a blog! Your thoughtful preparation and sensitive chairing made a huge difference.

Powerhouse Museum

Richard is just so, so, so professional and so prepared.

Rainmaker Information

Richard did a great job on Friday. He was professional, organised, well prepared and so easy to work with. He made my job easy as I knew he had the MC role under control and checked in with me throughout the day. He was also perfect for the financial topic which ran through the day. Your recommendation has once again been perfect.


Richard's professionalism, care and understanding of our brief and requirements went above and beyond any expectation. Richard's voice of velvet, charisma and charm brought a level of professionalism and showcraft to our event. I simply cannot recommend Richard highly enough and look forward to working with him for many years to come.

Hewlett Packard Australia Pty Ltd

Richard managed to make a daunting experience navigable and even enjoyable! He was engaging and kind while bringing the necessary level of ruthlessness to the task of preparing us for media interviews, both friendly and hostile. He modelled what he was telling us in ways that made all of his points very clear and accessible, and we benefitted hugely from him bringing his long and varied experience to bear on our own challenges.

The Centre for Public Christianity

Richard was wonderful to work with, and the utmost professional on the day. He appreciated a full briefing, which was great - and was then able to bend and move with the program as items shifted due to speaker movements. Absolutely loved working with him.
