I have been running the AIOFP for 20 years. Steven Bradbury was our onshore conference Emcee and dinner speaker on Hamilton Island in November 2017. The overwhelming positive feedback I had from the members on Steven’s services made it a ‘no brainer’ to bring him back for our offshore event in June 2018. Steven Emceed our events in New York, Washington DC and in Cuba. Again the feedback from the members has been exceptional, Steven is a pleasure to work with, a professional on and off stage and always available for social events outside of his official duties. We will be using Steven’s services again.
Hi Stephen I just want to thank you again for your amazing effort last night as the MC for our Awards dinner. Your handling of the night was both professional and entertaining. The positive feedback I have received on your role and the evening as whole is a testament to that.
Steven, Thanks again for a great job last week as MC and keynote speaker at our 3 day conference on Hamilton Island. You kept everyone entertained and inspired, kept us on schedule and were an absolute pro on and off stage. Your ‘Last One Standing’ auction was an amazing addition raising an unexpected $4,500 for our charity, awesome! Thanks for being so obliging
We hired Steven Bradbury to MC the launch of our TBC (Telstra Business Centre) Solutions platform. He did an amazing job intertwining our event goals, his own Olympic story, motivation and kept us all laughing throughout. Steve added the celebrity angle and his professionalism and homework on our company and our people 'hit the mark' perfectly. Anyone looking for a motivational speaker or an event MC Steven Bradbury should be at the top of your list. Thanks Steve for helping make our product launch memorable.
Steven Thanks so much for being our MC and making our event even more special. Everyone in attendance had a fantastic evening and loved your motivation and humour on the microphone. They also enjoyed that you stayed around for drinks and a chat with everyone after your official duties were over. Many thanks again for helping to make our evening a success and I look forward to future events.
Steven, Thank you so much for your wonderful job as our MC. The way you weaved humour and warmth in amongst our business speakers was exactly what the night needed.
Can I just start by saying how brilliant you were yesterday! Such an honour to hear and learn from your story – truly inspiring. Accepting the gold medal for 12 years, not 90 seconds speaks volumes for your maturity and given how hard I work, I know that I am not defined by 1 day! You would be a great speaker for our events, will be in touch!
Conferences are all about experiences and you topped this off very well for us. People are still talking about your presentation. For some feedback I will quote our CEO from South Australia, Grant Miles; "It was the best session I have ever been to at any conference I have ever attended…..second to none”. Grant attends many conferences and is generally a pretty hard marker so make sure you add his comments to your testimonials.
Steven was the keynote opening and closing speaker plus MC for 4 days at the most recent Laser International conference in Hawaii. Wow did he deliver, personable, inspirational, funny and totally hit the mark with all the members and their partners. We are looking forward to working with him again in the future. He was also the last man standing at the bars when socialising with the delegates. Awesome stuff Steven!
Steve, It was great to meet and have the opportunity to work with you on the roadshow. Aside from the fact that you're professional and very good as an MC, you are also an absolute pleasure to work with - kind, respectful and engaging. It really felt like you were an extension of our team which is important when you're on the road for four weeks!
It is without reservation that I provide this endorsement for Steven Bradbury. AMP used Steven as MC at our financial planning conferences held in the key capital cities around Australia. Steven, as the MC, made a major contribution to the success of all five events. His MC style appealed strongly to the audience and his ability to relate some of his life experiences to the messages on the day were first class. Steven was also keynote speaker at our National conference. Bringing him back as MC for our state conferences was a big success and I would highly recommend him as both MC and motivational speaker. He has broad appeal for business and private functions or conferences.
Dear Steven, On behalf of the Sunshine Coast Council, I would like to extend a thank you and congratulations to you for your services as MC at our Australia Day Awards. There has been nothing but praise and thanks from all who attended, especially regarding your humour and relaxed style behind the microphone. We also appreciated your preparedness to mix with the invited guests after the event.
Thank you again for entertaining our guests and for being our MC. We have had some fantastic feedback and we will definately keep you in mind for further functions.
Steven Bradbury was our MC for the official launch of the ISEEK Data Centre today. With the Qld Premier Anna Bligh, other dignitaries and TV Cameras in the room, for me it was a little daunting. Not so for Steve. Whilst keeping to schedule Steve’s MC style and use of comedy helped make the opening of our new Data Centre a great success. He was also generous with his time and made the extra effort to come in the day before our opening to go over all the details. Steve exceeded our expectations.
Thank you so much for your excellent job as MC at our national training awards night. Not only did you mange to keep the entertainment flowing, you kept the night humming along at a good pace. This is a rare combination at an awards night.
Dear Steve, Please accept my sincere thanks and congratulations for the superb job you did as MC of the Awards Night at Longreach a week ago. From my previous experience hearing you as guest speaker at our National Sales Conference last year, I knew that the MC role was in the most capable hands. The result at Longreach was a most enjoyable and memorable one for all present, due in no small way to your relaxed and humerous management of the night, together with your warm interaction with the crowd. As subsequently discussed, we would greatly appreciate your involvement as MC for our annual Fleet Golf Day dinner, as well as at other Dealer and Customer events where I have every belief that your expertise in that capacity will ensure a most successful occasion. Again, thanks so much for a top job well done.
Please accept our sincere thanks for your services as MC at the Australian Trucking Convention 2010. Our delegates enjoyed your stories and we have had only positive feedback on your appearance. Your job as the MC at the Volvo Auction Luncheon was fantastic and highly entertaining. Your “Last Man Standing” auctioneer skills got the bidding off to a great start too.
Dear Steve, On behalf of the Olympic Winter Institute of Australia I would like to thank you for your efforts in making our ‘Dine with an Olympian’ fundraiser a great success, in total the evening raised $23,000 towards OWI programs. Your services as MC for the evening were much appreciated by the athletes, staff and directors of the OWI. It was fantastic to have such a relaxed and light hearted host; I think it really set the tone of the evening. I was also pleased that we were able to balance the formalities of the evening whilst allowing our guests time to mingle and enjoy the food and wine. Much of this can be attributed to your thorough preparation and understanding of what we were hoping to achieve with the function. On a personal note it was a pleasure to work with you and I hope we can do so again in the future. Once again thank you for your efforts. Kind regards,
Steven was the MC at our Quest Newspapers annual YoungStar Awards, the event was attended by around 600 people including the Deputy Premier and Minister for sport. Steven's performance was refreshing, humorous and definitely not your traditional stand up presenter. His approach was professional and while working from our script, managed to personalize it with timely ad-libs to suit the moment. Quest run around 20 major award events each year around Brisbane and never before has our MC been in demand to sign autographs at the end of the night, Steven really aided in the success of the evening. If you are looking for Different, Quirky and Memorable, Steven could well be your man.
