Back-Up Plans

After hosting more than 700 events, I have a host of back-up plans should the unexpected happen.

Why choose me to be
YOUR Event MC?

Your event may have taken hundreds of hours to plan, so it’s important to choose a host who is a right fit for your event. Some functions require a straight approach, while others need an Event MC with an entertaining high energy level, which is why the choice can be a tough one.

 

That’s why I customise my style for every client, looking at how how my clients want me to be, enables me to cater for a ride range of events, while always exceeding my client’s expectations.   

Endorsed by Deborah Meaden, Lord Coe and many corporate heads

700+ Happy clients, 100% positive feedback

A fair and balanced contract issued for every booking

I go through a detailed Event Host consultation with every client

Award Ceremonies

Award Ceremonies can be long, which is why it’s important to hire an Event Host who will keep your audience engaged. 

Entertainment

On request I’ll keep your audience entertained with a wide range of games. 

Family Friendly

I’ve hosted events for kids of all ages and family events including fireworks displays, Christmas light switch ons and town centre events.

Auctioneer

Aside from my work as an Event Host I’m also a charity auctioneer. Click on the link below for further info. 

Key questions every Event MC should be able to answer

Here’s some key questions that every event host should be able to answer without missing a beat. I’ve included my own answers in the drop down menus.  

Are you fully insured as an Event MC?

Yes, I have PLI cover of £2,000,000. I’m happy to provide an insurance certificate on request.

If you hire an Event MC who isn’t insured, then there may be a long and lengthy legal process to recoup any costs as a result.

What type of events have you hosted previously?

Award Ceremonies (adults & kids), Gala Dinners, Charity Auctions, Business Conferences, Product Launches, Store Openings, Christmas Parties, Fireworks Events, Marathons, Sport Days, Company Anniversary, Female Sexual Empowerment (Shallis) and a range of private events.

It’s important to check that your Event Host has hosted a range of different events, as it shows that your host has the ability to change and adapt their presentation style in any given situation.

What would you do if X happened? - The Curve Ball

Even with the best planning in the world, the unexpected can happen. Suppliers can get caught in traffic, a fire alarm could sound, the food the catering supplies could be off, there could be a power cut, a fight could break out between two guests and the list goes on. 

The question is what would your Event Host do in each of these situations? Don’t be afraid to chuck a curve ball question like this, after all you want to know that you’re in a safe pair of hands for the evening. 

After hosting over 700 events and running my own Event Management business I’ve seen it all and as such I’m well prepared to deal with any emergency that may arise. 

Do you have video testimonials I can see?

Any one can draw up a testimonial and post it on a website, which is why in this day and age it’s important that you see video testimonials of previous clients.

That’s why you’ll find dozens of video testimonials throughout my website, including from Dragon’s Den’s Deborah Meaden. 

About Me

Aside from being an Event MC, I’m a comedy producer, father of two and small business entrepreneur who has built and sold 5 businesses in the past.

Previously I was a radio and TV presenter, who was regularly on the red carpet. In late 2023 I produced my first feature film  and plan to build on this in 2024 with my first web series.

Kevin was a brilliant host for our event - incredibly well prepared including double checking pronunciations of names, turning up early to complete a dress rehearsal and helping out to run around with a card machine for charity in his breaks from hosting without prompting - would highly recommend for any event.

Kevin was the auctioneer at a recent fundraiser, and he was *outstanding*. He worked hard to understand our audience and our auction items, and provided so much energy and humour in the auction itself - there is no way we would have been close to reaching our fundraising target without him. Thank you so much Kevin!

Kevin is a fantastic host. I used him as a toastmaster for a corporate event. I booked him last minute and with minimal prep time, he managed to provide an exceptional service. He was professional and went above and beyond to ensure that our guests were engaged throughout the course of the event. I highly recommend Kevin!

Kevin was an absolute star! From start to finish he was professional, approachable and nothing was too much trouble. This was our first ever charity ball and with him on board we smashed our target by £12,000, and I know without a doubt a large portion of this was down to Kevin's hard work. Everyone had a fabulous time and he set the perfect tone throughout the evening. We would book him again in a heartbeat - thank you Kevin!

Kevin went above and beyond on our special day! He provided a clear structure for our day, but delivered in such a way guests were comfortable! He also stuck his hand in to help with other areas of the day! Constantly checking in with us too! Thank you Kevin for everything you helped with on our wedding day! You were amazing.

When planning our wedding a toastmaster wasn't something I was fully sure we needed. However, upon research and coming across Kevin's website I knew he was absolutely what we needed! I had a few fears about the wedding but mostly 1) something major going wrong on the day and 2) people not being entertained enough . By booking Kevin I knew both would be covered and this was a huge relief for me. My Husband and I wanted quite a relaxed wedding which is another reason we opted for Kevin rather than a more formal ("stuffy") Toastmaster. His relaxed friendly style fitted in perfectly with our day. He also made sure we were fed and had a drink during drinks reception which was highly appreciated! During our pre-wedding meeting with Kevin we had originally said no to any games, however Kevin pushed us on this and we are so glad he did. During the wedding breakfast Kevin played Heads Up with each table separately, and the two tables who scored the highest went into a final battle in front of everyone. It was so lovely to sit at the top table watching it all going on and how much fun everyone was having (and how competitive people get!). Thank you Kevin for encouraging us and we would 100% recommend others to do the same! Also the day Kevin had also been recording video messages and advice from our guests. It was lovely (and very funny) to watch these back on our Minimoon! Thanks again Kevin, would 1000% recommend.

Kevin was brilliant from the moment he arrived. He ensured the wedding ran smoothly and was in complete control meaning we didn’t have to worry about a thing. I could not recommend him highly enough, thanks Kevin
