Conference MC / Host

Alan Shortt is a professional MC/Host with a difference. As a broadcaster and entertainer, Alan brings his casual yet corporate style to proceedings, while adding an extra level to your event with a stylish mix of his sophisticated humour, high energy style and creative use of his ad-libbing skills.

Alan’s in-depth research of each client allows him to become familiar with the company culture, jargon and personalities. In fact on many occasions employees and delegates thought that Alan actually worked for the company, so good was his knowledge and understanding of their industry.

Alan’s role as MC is to make themes, transitions and event logistics look seamless, while you sit back and enjoy the program you have planned. His aim is to entertain, inform, introduce and communicate important conference messages to a focused audience.

Alan will become the public face of your conference and elevate it from being “just another conference” to an event experience your delegates and employees will remember!

Alan can also run a tailor-made team-building afternoon/evening at your conference.

“Alan, thank you so much for coming to our rescue for our event in The Mansion House last week! You were absolutely brilliant, we really couldn’t have wished for more, you kept the audience beautifully entertained, held the whole night together and you were so professional in communicating everything that was important to us. Thanks again for everything, it was very much appreciated.”
