Doug is an exceptional MC, and very professional to work with. His talent as a performer was a special bonus none of the delegates saw coming...everyone loved him! Business Event Industry Aotearoa (BEIA)

Doug's skills as MC at business sessions and night events was fantastic but it was his creative and entertainment experience that really got our delegates eyes lit up - Doug is a true triple entertainment threat!

NZ Bus & Coach

I was impressed by your MC Doug Kamo who managed to hold the proceedings together in a humorous yet topical way throughout the event. I was also impressed with his versatility throughout as he popped up in the various acts over three excellent dinner events.

Alexander Dennis Ltd

Doug did a superb job MCing our awards, accurately gauging the audience with his humorous quips while still maintaining the appropriate level of professionalism to reflect our annual design awards event."

National Kitchen & Bathroom Association

Thanks so much for a great job, your contribution really helped keep the day upbeat and gave our conference a level of professionalism that we have been looking for.


WOW! No doubt you have been told that our attendees had a great time and for some I believe it was the highlight of the week, so thank you very much for a very entertaining evening.

Motel Association New Zealand

Doug was outstanding. Different, funny and highly entertaining. We felt exhausted just watching the energy he put into his presentation and how he held our audience captive from start to finish.

Otago Community Trust

What a fantastic welcome you have given our first two teams and I cannot thank you enough for your part in making all of this the great success it has been. The feedback from both teams, media and public has been nothing short of outstanding so thank you!

Rugby World Cup 2011

I just wanted to say thanks to you and the team, and especially Doug, for making our awards so successful. It was really disappointing to cancel the live event due to Covid lockdowns. Doug’s professionalism and quick response to assist us in Plan B - our virtual event - was pivotal in making this happen. He recommended a film and editing crew who were fantastic. The changes to the script, the segue to an online event and coordination with the filming were handled smoothly and provided an easy experience during a stressful time. I also loved the selection of jackets for changing each filming segment - something that was thoughtful and worked brilliantly. We have had such great feedback from our sponsors and members about the quality of the awards and Doug’s name has been synonymous with this feedback. I would be happy to recommend Doug to others holding an event, either live or broadcast - he’s a consummate professional and working with him has been a pleasure.

We engaged Doug as MC for the two days of conference and three evening events, and he ticked all the MC boxes - high energy, engaging and efficient in his delivery, and easy to work with!

Our people loved Doug! He was energetic, engaged and brought a lot of fun to our three-day event. He was a great fit for us and did an outstanding and professional job both on and off the stage.

Rothbury Insurance

Doug did a great job, he really tapped into the mana in the room and celebrated the achievements of the nominees and winners. He brought humour as well and ran perfectly to time and adjusted to suit changes we asked for. He worked well with my AV team freeing me up to focus on my role. Always a pleasure to work with.
