He's a proven performer as a Hoax Speaker, Master of Ceremonies, Corporate Comedian, Creative Thinking Presenter, Workshop Facilitator and Writer. All this adds up to someone whose ‘seriously quirky' approach adds genuine value and versatility to conferences, events, product launches and awards dinners.

"Absolutely hilarious and hit just the right note after a very heavy day of discussing future technologies."
Department of Primary Industries (Vic)
"Graeme Bowman aka Dr Heinrich Bauer - a German Consultant in Innovative Safety Procedures - provided a hoax presentation like no other at our Awards evening. He was absolutely brilliant and had the audience in laughter throughout."
"One of our Directors said that your ability to link the whole day together was the best she has ever seen an MC do."
Business Improvement in Government (Qld)
"Thank you for an outstanding performance. The number of staff who did not realise you were a hoax until the end was amazing. My expectations were exceeded, and the afternoon with staff was consequently a great success."
South Gippsland Shire Council
"Your flawless impersonation of the late Sir Joh Bjelke Petersen was a highlight of the evening, nothing but rave revues."
Tasmanian Export Awards
"The session was extremely well researched and put together by Graeme, and his ability to deceive a somewhat cynical audience was testament to his talent."
"Your hoax was incredibly convincing and enabled the meeting to commence on a more relaxed note that continued throughout the rest of the day. All of the staff that I have spoken to compliment the way in which you both controlled and entertained the meeting and I heard many ‘best ever' comments made afterwards. Staff were able to enjoy themselves and actively contribute to the meeting outcomes which is a win-win all round."
Country Fire Authority
"Project Meridian recently finished a large-scale systems implementation. The project team wanted a facilitator to host an entertaining debrief that would give the project team members time to reflect and unwind. Graeme opened the event pretending to be an international guest and tricked the audience into thinking there was a new project they'd all need to be involved in. It was a hilarious ice breaker that had everyone talking for days. Graeme then facilitated the event by using interesting and humorous activities which by the end of the event had everyone sharing their experiences. Graeme had not been given a lot of information to work with and we were very impressed at how he still managed to understand the needs of the group and apply his facilitation skills to achieve our objectives."
"Your hoax speech and creative thinking session received an average rating of 5.6 for the presentation and 5.4 for the content, on a scale of 1 to 6."
NSW Department of State and Regional Development
"Thank you for a humorous and most entertaining presentation at our Annual Business and Environment Awards Presentation. Feedback has all been very positive. Some of the audience looked a little shocked, while others had tears streaming down their faces."
"It was a great evening and the feed back has been extremely positive ... the talk of the day was the German Professor at the dinner!"
Local Government Association of Tasmania
"Thank you very much for your contribution to the recent anniversary dinner for the Victorian Government. This was a very prestigious event, with high profile politicians and industry leaders as far as the eye could see. The Premier made special mention of your contribution."
Australian Business Theatre
"Your stand-up comedy routine was excellent. But the crowning glory was the 'This Is Your Life' segment which made us laugh and cry simultaneously."
"Thank you for performing at my End of Mayoral Term Dinner Dance. I received very positive feedback about your speech from the other guests. I for one will certainly never look at a worm in the same light again."
