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.

"Your hoax was so well researched you managed to bait, hook and land 60 of the most hardened professionals."
Australian Association of Pathology Practices
"The audience were impressed with your ability to catch them unawares, and they were also delighted with the medical acronyms that you were able to string together. You continued to be the talking point in most conversations the following day."
Infection Control Association
"Fantastic entertainment at our Sydney and Melbourne launches. The doctors loved the David Attenborough script."
Merck, Sharp & Dohme
"Hilariously funny after dinner speaker. Brilliant hoax. The audience laughed to the point of tears."
Australian Hand Surgery Society
"Many thanks for a fantastic effort as our MC at our recent conference. You were a hit with everyone and helped bring the presentations together with humour and fun to make the conference our best ever."
Fernwood Women's Health Clubs
"The conference has been claimed as a great success and your presentation contributed to this with a rating of 10 out of 10."
Institute of Hospitality in Healthcare
"Uncork your Creative Genie was not only very entertaining, but also carried with it an informative message . . . an extremely positive response from our delegates."
Aged Care Association of Victoria
"In the past our AGMs have been very formal and perhaps a little dull . . . the night was a tremendous success, with the feedback from doctors overwhelmingly positive."
John Flynn Private Hospital
"Graeme performed as an Integrated Healthcare Consultant from the United Kingdom discussing International Insights on Liberating Healthcare. The VIA has received great feedback about this performance. Delegates were very positive about Graeme's ability to turn health jargon and acronyms into something funny, and the ability to lead people on from the start with terminology that reflected the current health system."
Victorian Healthcare Association
"Your hoax character, Professor George Connor from Mississippi, fooled everybody. I was actually sitting at a table of Americans and they kept looking at each other and asking where could this man have possibly come from? They were alternatively confused, embarrassed and then outraged by this bizarre personality. It was a great hoax and the crowd loved it. I very much appreciated the sensitivity with which you treated the more contentious issues in view of entertaining an international audience."
International Rhinologic Society
"Graeme played the part of a Game Show Host. This role was quite important; not only did it provide a break between conference presentations but it also enabled many of the pharmacists to relax and have a laugh at themselves."
"There was a need for us to give some very complex, and possibly unsettling information about the future of our industry to the sales teams. How could we expect someone from outside the business to get it right when many insiders had trouble with the changes? Well you did get it right. Your script hit all the important issues and set the tone for the whole week."
"Your performance was enthralling to all who attended, and I should say that even our experienced clinical staff were kept in wonderment and suspense until the very end."
"People are still speaking about the wonderful Graeme Bowman. Guests at the function were either bewildered at this man who was just let out of the psychiatric hospital too early, or nearly wet themselves with laughter. Graeme was not only an excellent actor/speaker, but also an excellent guest to have at our function. He mingled with the group and they were very pleased to meet the man who the made the night. I cannot speak too highly of him."
Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (Victoria)
"Your presentation as Dr George Connor was an outstanding success which continues to amuse us some weeks after the event."
Benalla and District Memorial Hospital
"Feedback was excellent. Some thought you were just joking before getting serious & some thought you were trying to avoid the subject but did not realize the whole thing was a fraud. Some only caught on towards the end!"
Australian Dental Prosthetists Assoc.
"Graeme Bowman - what an entertainer! His hoax character comes on and off like a mask and is very convincing... so much so that one of the VIPs he met just before the event started was convinced he was a visiting American Professor. Apart from the set up, Graeme did a top notch job of keeping the program moving and creating a friendly and congenial atmosphere. Appreciated by all. Some said the most professional Golf Day they've been to."
"Very entertaining and amusing presentation to our doctors at our AGM of the Medical Advisory Council. You managed to put a smile on the faces of some very staid gentlemen at what is usually quite a stuffy affair. The feedback ( ‘fantastic choice of speaker', ‘what a hoot') was a real buzz."
John Fawner Hospital
"Your comedy act ‘Stuck in the Middle' during the conference dinner was well received from your very first word, and helped create a convivial mood that contributed to making the evening an undoubted success."
