There are Masters of Ceremony

…. and then there’s John Deeks.

The pivotal role of Master of Ceremonies can mean the difference between the biggest night of the year being a success that’s talked about for weeks, or just another night. There are good reasons why John Deeks is one of Melbourne’s most successful and highly regarded Masters of Ceremony.

Experience:
The list of corporations both large and small that rely on John to host their annual conference, Gala or ‘Night of Nights’ is both extensive and impressive, from roof/peak bodies handing out Industry Awards, to some of Melbourne’s most prestigious companies, associations, schools and societies. Whether it be in the fields of Sport, Commerce, Administration, Education and Training, Finance, Local government and more, John will work with your key personnel and your team to ensure that every speaker, every Award and every performer is appropriately named, introduced and thanked –on time and on schedule.

Extra sparkle!
If it is appropriate, suitable and required, John can also, on request, provide a speech touching on different aspects of his 40+ year career in television and radio, providing a light hearted and entertaining moment in the evening’s proceedings that many have called the ‘highlight of the night’!

Something extra!
With his extensive years of experience in Television, John can also organise some fantastic Video packages to enhance the evening and its aftermath. You may wish for your event to be filmed, as a record or archive of the night. Many of John’s clients rely on recording the night’s proceedings in order to reach those stake holders (staff, suppliers, customers or clients) who were unable to be present on the night. We can also edit the event to create a shorter cutdown version or ‘highlights’ video that can be placed on your website, for example on the front page, or perhaps under ‘Latest News’ or even ‘Recent Events’.

This can be especially useful where you wish to thank or acknowledge your Gold or Platinum sponsors, for example by highlighting signage used on the night, or key speeches that ought to be seen by a wider audience.

John can also assist in preparing, hosting or narrating any special Video that you may wish to be screened on the night. This could be anything from an interview (or interviews) with an individual you may wish to honour, a review of the company’s history leading to a milestone anniversary, the launch of a special project or product, or a Video review of the year’s key events. Such a Video played during the night can often give your event a real ‘Wow!’ factor that will impress your guests. We can also arrange for such a video to be added to your website to be enjoyed over, anywhere in the world.
