Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Let me start by saying that this 'chaise' is uncomfortable. A beanbag would have been fine. Anyway...
I'm a professional, highly experienced (over 25 years), fun and relaxed Master of Ceremonies (MC).
I'm not a corporate MC who tells a few jokes. I'm a professional Stand Up Comic who loves to MC. I know 'corporate' and I know comedy. I've worked with 5 year olds, bank CEOs through to interviewing South African President F.W. de Klerk.
While you're here, let me tell you that I'd love to MC your next conference or special event and help you make it an unrivalled success. See my bio for more information about me.
In short, MC, Stand Up Comedian, Creative.
I also offer multiple services to enhance your event.
But, I need to know about you. Send me a message below. Let's do this!
The MC process involves meeting you and understanding what you want to achieve at your important event. It may be to celebrate a company milestone or anniversary, launch or raise awareness of a new product or raise money for your charity. Each event has its own challenges and requires great thought and care and given that audiences are unique, a positive attitude and an ability to adapt and improvise is vital. I've MC'd hundreds of events in over 30 countries and I'd love the opportunity to meet you and discuss your important event.
Col offers bespoke Event 'Teaser' videos to call your guests or delegates to action. Filmed in a professional studio, you can expect high quality vision and sound, plus copywriting. Simply supply Col with your quality background image and important information and he'll do the rest. See examples in the video section below.
In Col's keynote presentation "Stand Up Comedy Secrets to Increase Your Success - Life lessons from 'The Hardest Job In The World’" Col teaches his audience the amazing and often unexpected lessons he's learned from Stand Up Comedy. He breaks down the psychology and physiology of the job as well as exploring lessons in resilience and wellbeing. Audiences will leave with practical techniques to use in their every day lives. Delivered in Col's hilarious style, this interactive and practical keynote will be remembered long after your event.
Have a speech that needs a comedic touch? Is the CEO retiring and it's hard to find someone to speak? Col loves to create memorable moments in surprising ways. Contact Col and start jamming ideas!
Sales & training
As a professional communicator, Col will deliver your training for you. Companies that have engaged Col to deliver their key messages in a training context have been thrilled with the response. I am regularly asked to assist sales teams by adding comedic content, whether it's to keep delegates engaged or to add emphasis to points that are made. Col has written and co-written presentations for hundreds of national retail managers and entire sales presentations, nationally, increasing sales five-fold year on year. Need to add some fun and sell more successfully? Contact Col.
How about a bespoke Company Quiz or Heads & Tails? What about hysterical team building activities? How about some custom written activities to match your theme? These are just some of the extras Col adds to events. Find out more!
I’m sure you get this all the time, but I can’t even imagine what today would have looked like without you. You were an absolute genius - and saviour- of this presentation. We really can’t thank you enough or underrate what you were able to turn that rotation into. Thank you so much for your work and creativity. Thanks again Col, and I'm sure we'll meet again as I won’t be doing another one of these without you!
