What people say about Michael

If you happen to be organising an event and looking for a First Class Entertainer, you can go no further but choose Michael. For our Annual Dinner last Friday evening, his performance was outstanding, very funny and extremely clever. He was present at our event from the start to the finish, with all of our Members in fits of laughter.

– Lynn Undy: Municipal Works Operation Assoc.

We were lucky enough to secure Michael for our recent Staff Summit and he was absolutely AMAZING!! His fantastic energy and humour had the whole room buzzing….we’re still talking about it and scratching our heads at his tricks! We’ve had so many positive comments about what a great finish to the day it was… We’d definitely love to have you along next time! 

– James Kelly, MD Lifestyle Communities

Michael proved to be a fantastic MC for our recent three day conference in Melbourne. A good MC does just enough to make sure the conference participants stay focused, energized and interested whilst avoiding being the centre of attention themselves. Michael struck that balance to perfection. I was particularly impressed by the genuine interest he took in our business. He recapped the sessions clearly and concisely and even asked some pertinent questions in the Q&A sessions to keep the momentum of the sessions going. He was happy to seek guidance and directions from us when timing got off track whilst at the same time displaying initiative on many of the smaller issues which inevitably come up during the conference. I was impressed, as were many of my colleagues. I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael as a professional, effective and engaging MC.

– David Bell: Kwik Kopy

…we thought he was terrific. He took the time beforehand to prep and suggest program changes which we incorporated. On the day he was professional, entertaining and read the audience very well. His interviewing skills on the day were engaging as was his ability to involve the audience in a couple of fun activities he had prepared. His ability to drive up the bidding at the live auction was fantastic and we ended up with much higher bids than anticipated. We would definitely consider using Michael again.

– Wendy Jenkins: Lungitude Foundation

Though it has been a week since the ceremony, I have been inundated with positive and generous compliments about the pace and enjoyment that all the Franchisees and guest experienced on the night. Your comedic take during the evening kept the tone informal and very upbeat, relaxing the crowd into a positive state of mind. Your attention to detail in the rehearsal made sure that we got all the awards correct, there were no uncomfortable pauses and all recipients felt they had known you for a while.

– Peter Sinodinos: Snap Printing

I couldn’t speak more highly of Michael. He was proactive, gave thorough feedback, imparted creativity, was professional and really took our event to the next level. Our audience left asking how he was connected to Salesian College Chadstone – this was testament to his invested time and energy into making the night seamless.

– Suzie McErvale: Salesian College

Michael, thx for being an awesome MC at ci2019! You brought it to life.

– Warwick Peel. Creative Innovation 2019

Brilliant. Michael puts so much preparation into his dynamic and engaged MC role; our members just respond so positively to the fun vibe that he creates.

– Lorraine Neill: Vic Caravan Parks Assoc

The feedback from the team leading into the Data Directions event was “Michael makes the event”. I would agree your approach and knowledge of our customers was invaluable to the success of our event. Thanks for conducting our conference seamlessly.

– David Skewes: GM Pacific Datacom

Thank you Michael Pope for hosting the ASEAs so wonderfully well and artfully yet again. We really appreciate the care…

– Jeremy Larkins: Australia Service Excellence Awards

It was wonderful working with you for the CAF Conference. I think you brought a great energy to the event and connected really well with our brokers.

– Chantelle Boekel: Connective Mortgage Brokers

I’ve worked with Michael many times and he’s become an integral part of our conference as MC extraordinaire! He goes above and beyond, and I couldn’t do it without him. I’ll definitely keep using him for many more years to come.

– Carly Bowyer: Lawrence & Hanson

He has the knack of commanding the attention of all the people in the room and can quickly convey to the audience the purpose of the function and what is expected of them as an audience.

– PAM BARNES, LOGIES PRODUCER

Thank you so much for a truly funny, witty and entertaining evening. Honestly, the feedback from the staff and management alike has been terrific.

– FRANKLIN PRINTING GROUP

Michael – what an entertaining, energetic and fantastic experience you shared with us! So many wonderful comments, thank you so much…I look forward to more events where you can entertain and amuse our valued clients.

– CATHY ASHTON, MELBOURNE OLYMPIC PARKS

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Michael on a number of occasions and I consider him to be one of the most experienced and professional hosts I know. His interaction with people is fantastic and his public speaking is knowledgeable, humorous and reflects many years in the entertainment industry.
