My experience of running an event management business gives me a unique skillset whereby I can present a conference, manage the stage as well as give full support behind the scenes as and when it’s needed.
EMERGENCY BACK-UP PLANS
Sometimes things don’t go to plan. Speakers get caught in traffic, creating time in the schedule that needs to be filled or a problem with the mic cuts the sound.
I have a range of back-up plans in place which cover a number of different scenarios to ensure, no matter what happens, the show will go on.
PREPARATION & REHEARSAL
I go through a detailed consultation with every client before each event takes place. Where possible I’m always keen on a dress rehearsal with the stage team, to ensure that the event runs smoothly and to plan.
Hiring a Conference Host for an all-day event is different to hiring a host for the evening. As well as having good stage presence a Conference Host must have excellent stage management, and interviewing skills, as well as be able to manage the agenda throughout the day.
Booking a Conference Host without this experience can lead to the your audience becoming disengaged, Q&A opportunities being wasted and even the event being cut short, because its overrun.
I have the experience as a conference host to make your event a success. I’ll work closely with you to ensure your event runs to time. My experience with interviewing business leaders and A-list celebrities will make for an engaging Q&A without any mishaps.

Beside from interviewing business leaders and employees at different levels, I’ve interviewed some of the biggest names in Hollywood including Robert Downey Junior, Robin Williams and Jude Law.
Live Q&As are often an essential part of any conference and provide an excellent opportunity for a speaker to share more about their achievements, motivational talk and for the guests to ask questions as well.
A great Conference Host must be prepared with their own questions, but more importantly the Conference Host but be prepared to listen. I’ve been to many events as a guest, where a great follow-up question was missed, because the host didn’t listen to the answer given by the interviewee.
I listen to the people I interview, asking them questions which lead onto answers that forward the overall conversation. I also spend the time before every event to research the people that I’m going to interview, so I can fully engage with them and ask them questions that people want to know the answers to.
