The Hype Man
Aaron is a professional MC, hosting conferences, special events and festivals. He was thrown in the deep end from his very first day in radio in his 20s, hosting some kind of wearable arts thing in front of hundreds of people and literally died (and cringes often about it). Aaron made it his mission to understand how to truly connect with the masses and turned it into a fine art. Aaron then went on to tour internationally with a comedy troupe for 3 years, returning to New Zealand to apply his witty banter as a youth speaker, and eventually to corporate and special events.
I've heard grooms say that this is most nerve wracking part of the day for them. My job is not only to transition between speeches but to warm up your crowd so you won't want to get off the mic. As MC I ensure a fun, light & happy vibe thanks to a few crowd-pleasing tricks up my sleeve. For nervous speakers I even supply my trusty speeches cheat sheet which is guaranteed to help you create and deliver an awesome speech.
"Just wanted to take his opportunity to say what an amazing job you did at our wedding. We knew you would do a great job but we did not expect just how much of an impact you actually had and the positive feedback we received. People are still mentioning you today and asking about your services so I expect a few more enquiries your way. The way you performed, made sure everything went to plan and entertained everyone cannot be underestimated and we are super grateful for your work. You’re a star."
