I can highly recommend Oliver Peterson as a presenter, host or MC. I had the pleasure of working with Oly during my time at the Nine Network when he hosted numerous events including The John Hughes Big Walk, WA Regional Achievement Awards and the West Perth Football Club Annual Awards. He is the consummate professional when taking on these roles. He thoroughly researches any events he is involved in, is personable, has a great sense of humour and fully engages with his audience.

We were very fortunate to have Oliver Peterson MC the John Hughes Big Walk (a fundraising walk for the Perth Children's Hospital) for three consecutive years and just loved working with him. He understood the brief, arrived to the event on time and came fully prepared. His flexible approach and professionalism contributed to each event running like clockwork. He delivered event and sponsor key messages accurately with energy and enthusiasm. Oliver also provided feedback with ideas for the event which we implemented. A true professional and a great guy to work with - Oliver comes with my highest recommendation.
