How Tim Impacts Your Audience
Tim has had thousands of conversations with people. Whether it is the Prime Minister, The Ambassador or the youth activist, that conversation is a moment to engage and share with your audience using the media of choice. They can be a series of podcasts, video or live social media events integrated into your current media strategy or for your conference event.

Keeping it to time and ensuring there is engagement and energy in the room however large or small the audience. You know what effort and investment went into the planning for the event, now it’s over to the skill of an experienced MC to bring your event to life.
At a recent event the smoke machines set off the fire alarms in the building which then took out the entire audio system. Fast thinking required Tim to keep the event going and flowing and importantly how do we catch up time (which they did) after the ‘smoke had cleared’
the panel host
Making a business event more than just a meal is a terrific way to engage stakeholders and guests to attend, particular with questions from the floor or prepared earlier. Ministers past and present, business leaders who share experience even if it is Chatham House rules! You need a panel host that can steer the conversation and keep it on track and on time.
PWC Federal Budget Breakfast Panel
Former Federal Treasurer Peter Costello now Chairman of Nine Entertainment Limited was terrific at a Federal Budget Breakfast panel discussion. Tim shared an idea for a new game show idea for TV – Treasurers Island, where the Federal Treasurer and the opposition spokesperson were at each end of the island vying for the best set of numbers to return Australia to surplus (We think it’s still on the drawing board.)

Considering what’s working, what’s not and perfecting your pitch to your ideal audience.

The Awards Host
There is something really special about a room full of finalists who know they have come together to celebrate their industry contribution. We know the star performers are recognised by winning awards. Tim wants everyone to feel like they are a winner, for just being there, and sharing that success with others. That’s why he loves hosting awards!
