Feedback from attendees has been very positive with people saying he really livened up the ceremony." Auckland University - Exposure Prize Giving Event
Jon was professional and our whole team adored him. We had so many audience members comment on how much of a great MC he was. He incorporated appropriate industry jokes into his speech and he got a lot of laughs. I would recommend Jon to anyone.
