VISIT CHESTER AND CHESHIRE ANNUAL AWARDS
"I would thoroughly recommend Mark as an awards host for corporate events. His fun, vibrant style really helped create an excellent atmosphere, and he had obviously done a lot of research in his own time on the presenters and winners of our awards, as he ad-libbed stories about them throughout the night. He stayed on to celebrate with the winners after the awards, and we were so pleased we booked him"

HOLIDAYWORLD ANNUAL EXHIBITION, BELFAST
My client was absolutely delighted – I’ve had so many emails and texts singing his praises. He charmed the pants off everyone at the event. I have been doing the show for 6/7 years and he is by far the best person we’ve had to date. It is a busy day, with lots of meeting and greeting, and Mark was as polite and interested in the 100th person as he was with the 1st! He made my job so easy. I would recommend Mark any day. Please pass on my HUGE thanks!"
