    We've had nothing but rave reviews about the evening and much of this can be attributed to your role as MC. Sure 100% Kylie was good but no where near as good looking as you! :-) Your professionalism and ability to captivate and control our audience with your humour was terrific.

    A late but very sincere note of thanks! Your contribution gave the evening that extra 'sparkle' and the event was a great success…

    …Glynn to the rescue!! I knew that you would be funny and that the audience would respond positively to you but did not expect, in the preparation time available, for the material that you prepared to be so relevant to the Advisers and their role in AMP. It hit all the right spots with the audience. You seemed to understand their world and feed it back to them with humour, pathos but most importantly with respect. Your versatility, intelligence, humour and physical performance skills totally engaged the audience. My only dilemma is how I'm going to top that next year.

    Glynn Nicholas was our choice as M.C. He demonstrated an ability to listen, while taking every opportunity to suggest through his own experience (and the routines and characters he can bring to a conference) ways we could achieve our objectives. His research on the company was thorough. At all times Glynn was cooperative, reliable and professional.

    Glynn delivered a key note at our annual dealer conference in Fiji. We were looking for someone to engage the audience with some humour while delivering the message of adapting to change and the challenges of small business. Glynn engaged the audience superbly with mime and audience participation while also weaving into his presentation key strategic business messages from our brief. Our audience is use to high-caliber speakers and Glynn did not disappoint
