Testimonials

Brian read the crowd perfectly and did a fabulous job entertaining our group.
Nutrien AG Solutions

Brian was a huge hit. Our gala dinner was outstanding and in no part due to Brian’s enthusiasm. He is so easy to work with, and is a no-risk entertainer. Clean, appropriate, engaging, friendly … so many wonderful things. Everyone just absolutely loved him and everyone got into the Rockwiz competition. Having Brian as an MC for an awards with a Rockwiz show thrown in is a guarantee to an outstanding dinner event. Highly recommended.

Brian, just a quick note to say I thought you did the most magnificent job at The Logies. Everyone wanted to keep playing music trivia!!! Gary Sweet doing Mick Jagger to ‘Satisfaction'! Seriously, all through the night you were fantastic.

We found Brian Nankervis to be highly professional in his approach as well as an excellent choice for both our MC as well as the entertainment. A few days before our event he was pleased to be involved in a teleconference with our event team and listened carefully to our comments, on the evening of the event he worked through our event plan with us and even noted difficult names in our event awards in phonetic format to ensure everything was correct. His attention to detail ensured that our event went well, plus when we had some minor changes during the evening nothing was too much trouble and he still delivered a perfect outcome for us. We cannot speak highly enough of his professionalism as our MC and, of course, his entertainment capabilities are also exceptional. As a result of Brian’s involvement we had comments that this was perhaps our best event ever!
