‘I cannot praise Greg highly enough for his involvement from the outset which made our event such a success, for his professionalism, his unwaveringly positive attitude, his abilities to enthral an audience, his skills in managing and designing the event and for his ability to ensure that everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable time.  I have no hesitation at all in recommending Greg and I am happy to provide written and verbal references, because I know if you have the foresight to bring Greg into your show or event you will benefit exponentially’  President, Sales & Marketing Institute of NZ

 ‘Feedback from delegates is that the MC was very professional, providing a very smooth conference from start to finish with snippets of humour and acting at the appropriate times.  I learnt a great deal from Greg in terms of preparation and detail required that took my seventh conference to greater heights.  I look forward to working with Greg in the future’  NZ Contractors Federation

 ‘Greg did an excellent job in getting the audience to participate, certainly not an easy task!  Toyota Financial Services

Greg performed as ‘Almost Elton’ at the Applefest Royal Gala Banquet and his show was the highlight of the evening.  His interaction with the audience and ability to do what Elton does so well was outstanding.  Almost Elton is a show stopper and a guaranteed way to WOW the crowd.  I heard many people comment “who needs the real Elton”.   Magdalena VandenBerg – Cellarbrate and Applefest Director

Greg is more than just an MC.  He really took ownership of the event, but not only did he MC, he entertained and was very professional throughout”  NZ Collision Repair Association
