University of Sydney

Adam Spencer's role as the MC for the CIO Executive Council Awards night was a perfect compliment for the audience present and the topic of the evening, which was to acknowledge and identify the exemplary efforts of Australia's top CEOs. His level of professionalism partnered with his knowledge of the industry and his incredible wit and humour had everyone commenting on how well orchestrated and executed the evening was. I have attended a lot of events where the MCs over do it, under do it, or are just not the right fit for what needs to be achieved, whereby Adam adapted to the audience and delivered a perfect flawless evening that captured the spirit of the night and his humour added flavour and laughter. An absolutely brilliant, intelligent man.
