Just a quick personal note to say ‘thank you’ for your involvement as our Congress MC at the AIS last week.  I really appreciated your flexibility with timings of the program, and your professionalism in MC’ing the event.  We had numerous positive comments and feedback about your involvement, and I just wanted to pass it on and say that you were very well received.

I hope from your perspective it went well, and again, I just wanted to thank you again.  It was a pleasure to meet you, and perhaps we’ll cross paths again in the future.

Tony was extremely professional, the event ran very smoothly and attendees commented on how good Tony suited our event. He brought his own personality and made a great impression.

Very professional, very funny - Tony wove the serious conference content with a great light hearted wit, that created seamless & relevant links between conference sessions, and provided the event with excellent light & shade
Experience DNA

From a very short briefing, Tony ‘got it’-he understood our objectives, did copious research and prepared meticulously.  He presented us with a hypothetical-“A Difficult Day”- that was timely, relevant and thought provoking.  His presentation was well written ,and delivered in a relaxed, but business-like style, balancing humour with challenge and constantly adapting to the group’s responses, ensuring that we were  fully engaged throughout the session. It was a stimulating and thoroughly enjoyable part of our programme.

Your recommendation of Tony Wilson (a superb master of ceremonies) for the event ensured that the night was a fantastic success.  I was particularly impressed with the amount of research Tony conducted prior to the event on each of our speakers, and on World Visions work.  His input of key factors, anecdotes and light hearted humour throughout the night was much appreciated by all those attending, including our chief executive Mr Lynn Arnold and our board of directors.
World Vision

Tony’s “MC’ing’ & performance during the Thursday Luncheon received some very positive comments and provided a real contrast to the seminars held during the rest of the day … We appreciated his level of professionalism which made working with him very easy.
Law Institute of Victoria

Thanks for recommending Tony Wilson. His role as an M.C. was smooth and relaxed. We thought he was just great with the kids. Tony asked all the right sort of questions, got them laughing and made them feel relaxed.

Tony spoke so well at the President’s Luncheon at the Law Institute that he was asked to entertain members and guests at The Institute’s major social event of the year, the annual dinner.   Again he did this with style and wit.  He was a big hit

Tony’s Speech provided a most entertaining and inspiring beginning to what proved to be a marvellous event for young Australians to participate in the current debates on constitutional issues.
Constitutional Centenary Foundation

Well judged in terms of tone, content and length, Tony enthralled everyone with his fine mix of acute wit, consisted advice, subtle motivation and relevant anecdote … The speech was clearly fashioned for the occasion and the audience of almost 800 people. I recommend Tony without reservation as an outstanding public speaker and look forward to the next occasion that he can return and speak at a school function.
Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School

Presentation not only captured the theme of the evening, ‘It’s never too early in your career to network” – but was also entertaining, witty and informative … I look forward to being able to invite you back to Deacons in the future.

I received heaps of feedback about your performance.
CPR Communications

As a result of your performance, the 370 guests in attendance enjoyed a wonderful evening of wit & satire.  The feedback I’ve received from both legal and non-legal types has been fantastic.  You are a natural stand-up comedian and did a great job as the adjudicator.
Law Institute Victoria

It was a great success and you were integral to that success, six hours is a heck of a long time to pad and inform.  You really earned your tee shirt and make many RRR ‘conversations’ on the day.
Russo & Russo

He’s not the traditional “bell ringing” MC but rather a quick thinking, talented, light hearted, entertaining, and great impromptu performer under pressure.
Institute of Body Corporate Managers

It is a pleasure to provide this reference for Tony Wilson who recently volunteered his excellent comic and MC skills for the Public Interest Law Clearing House (Vic) Inc. (‘PILCH’) 10th anniversary dinner charity auction. The dinner was a huge success.  Tony contributed in a large part to this success.  He poked fun at various people attending the dinner in a way that only a good comedian can.  There was a lot of laughter during the auction and many people commented on how much they enjoyed his auction style. He did an excellent job in encouraging people to bid for items and compete against each other. PILCH is very grateful to Tony. His contribution is valued very much.

Tony Wilson was our Master of Ceremonies. His commentary was funny and witty. His preparation for the function was clearly demonstrated by the questions he asked our guest speakers and the response received from our audience. The IWIRC committee highly recommends Tony's skills as a Master of Ceremonies.

Tony was really receptive to what we were trying to achieve with our event and he was a pleasure to work with. He was well organised, slotted into the MC role beautifully and was well received by our guests.
Irvine Club

Excellent. Warm & inviting personality. Great presence. My guests are very talkative & Tony knew when to wait for their attention or tell them to be quiet, but in a professional manner. Intelligent humour which went over well with the guests. Worked the floor well during some of the. competitions. The script demanded much from Tony & he didn't let us down. The 7 sponsors were very pleased with each individual key pitch Tony announced.
Australian Property Institute

Tony did an exceptional job as MC of our launch event.
