Auckland Convention Bureau
- Feedback from organisers and participants was that Jesse did a brilliant job and delivered an entertaining performance as well as clear communication throughout the event, introducing speakers. Jesse has a great balance between smart and funny and works great for a function that was semi-formal but added a light yet quality approach to the overall feel and format.
- Jesse was fantastic, really professional and friendly. The attendees thought he was brilliant. He kept the evening to schedule and made for a fun night!
Loyalty New Zealand Ltd
- Jesse helped promote a relaxed and humourous atmosphere for our dinner while maintaining the brevity that the event reqired. Jesse was funny while being highly professional and courteous. As an MC he spoke clearly and naturally and socialised well afterwards. We are delighted with his performance and would recommend him.
"The service provided by Celebrity Speakers was very professional and helpful. I was given more than enough information about the speakers that I was thinking of using so that I could make an informed decision.
The follow up communication to any of my enquiries was very quick and I would like to thank both Stephanie and Sam for their assistance and professionalism."
