Shane knows this client well. Has great rapport with them and is just naturally enjoyable to watch and doesn't need to be fully scripted to make the event work. He's a dream to work with.

Definitely contributed to the success of the event kept everything running smoothly and dealt with any timing issues on the run. Perfect fit for our event, very strong positive feedback from attendees.

He was fantastic! Great sense of humor, humorus and yet professional. We experienced slight AV technical difficulties and he held it together very well. With his background in event management, he was able to engaged with the guests and keep everything rolling and on track. Everyone said they loved him and if we could bring him back the following year.

Trying to find the words to describe Shane is difficult as I don’t think amazing, professional, outstanding or funny even scratch the surface. He kept the crowd entertained, was open to all guests meeting with him and was a key factor in raising much needed funds for a grass roots charity that has only been around for 5 years.
"Shane was Brilliant!! Our awards evening and dinner was a huge success and Shane’s ability to keep the audience entertained as well as keeping with the formalities of the evening was just perfect!! Shane is a true professional who is very down to earth and extremely easy to work with. Shane was so generous with his time and very approachable throughout the evening. Shane did an amazing job for us and we would definitely look to have him back again. Thanks Shane!"

Client Feedback – SHANE AS A SPEAKER:
Shane Jacobson was absolutely outstanding. He was genuine, warm, very funny and made the day flow extremely well. People were thrilled to have him there. I haven't used a speaker that I would recommend more highly than Shane. I'd jump at the chance to have him at another of our events.
“Thank you once again for presenting at our Making Connections Lunch. Your drive,enthusiasm and success is an inspiration to us all. Our objective for this series of lunches is to provide a relaxed environment for staff and clients to interact, while drawing inspiration from an interesting and thought-provoking presenter. Shane you have helped us achieve this aim and for that we are very grateful”
“Shane was fantastic on the night! We thought he was great at injecting his individuality in to the night's proceedings and had the audience in stitches with his adlib stories and jokes. We have had loads of comments from the dinner attendees - including Comcare Executive who have said that they thought Shane was absolutely brilliant. He was very easy going and a pleasure to deal with. We would love to have him back again and would definitely recommend him to anyone!”

“TOTALLY STUPENDOUSLY WONDERFUL!!!! Shane is absolutely professional, amusing, honest, caring, it's obvious he enjoys what he does and his life. He is brilliant and I think I'm in love!!!! We would use him again in a flash - what a presenter and what a great human being. Shane rated well above any of our other speakers and deservedly so. I can't speak highly enough of what a true professional he is and his honesty is so apparent.”
“Shane's story hit the mark as may members were either from Melbourne or are involved in plumbing wholesale. Story with humour was a success. Photos with Shane also made the night)”.
Shane is a brilliant human being and that's what really shone - we've had accomplished speakers before but he made everyone in the room feel like a friend - amazing skill to achieve that with 120 people. Personally - he was great company and made the event a lot of fun for me. May his star continue to rise!

Excellent, Shane did an excellent job and the audience loved him. He was easy to deal with and highly professional, particularly as we had a few program changes along the way. Highly recommended - a great MC!
John Danks & Son
He was fantastic. I have never seen Shane MC anything before so it was pure delight for me to see him in his element and do such a fine job. He wasn't just an MC, he was entertaining, and that I think is the thing that sets him apart from the pack .I don't know how we can find someone better for next year!

"Shane was highly professional and did a fantastic job of keeping the night rolling smoothly and quickly. Most importantly he was hilarious too, he had the audience members doubling over in laughter and we have had nothing but positive feedback from everyone who attended our event. Most impressive was his improvising and thinking on his feet. Ten out of ten to Shane Jacobson."
Port Phillip City Council
Shane’s presentation was a highlight of our conference, being a thoroughly entertaining and engaging speaker for our Gala dinner. Shane’s talk was a great balance of story-telling, motivation, and comedy all rolled into one. It was even more pleasing to have Shane attend our dinner and stay and talk with all the guests throughout the evening and well into the night, which was ‘above and beyond’ what would be expected of many speakers. I would highly recommend Shane to other corporates looking for an interesting and entertaining speaking for their event.
Victorian Farmers Federation
Shane communicated and engaged the crowd like I’ve never seen before. A wonderful MC with all the skills to ensure the night is a success.
