"Absolutely hilarious and hit just the right note after a very heavy day of discussing future technologies."
Department of Primary Industries (Vic)
"Our clients enjoyed your learned comments - even those who started taking notes, and then, to their embarrassment, closed their notepads!"
"Your contribution truly added value to our awards night. Your character certainly engaged the audience, captured their attention by bewilderment and then delivered an enormous amount of group laughter."
"Graeme joined us for a 3 day conference as our Master of Ceremonies. His style was a perfect mix of fun, comedy, creativity and seriousness, and his involvement was a big part in this year's event being labelled the 'best ever'. Graeme also brought a number of hilarious elements to our Awards Dinner, and his hoax speech had a room full of geologists staring bug eyed at the stage wondering what on earth was happening. I would recommend Graeme to any organisers of large and complex events like ours."
"Graeme did a wonderful job at our Malaysian conference. For a culturally diverse crowd, I thought he was spot on and kept us all laughing."
Orica Mining Services
"... excellent performance ... one of the highlights of the conference ... provided well earned light relief in the middle of a heavy program and drew plenty of favourable comment the next day. All the sponsors thought their sponsorship money had been well spent."
Australian Institute of Energy
"The audience were in rapturous laughter, transfixed on your routine."
"Graeme's appearance at our National Conference provided light relief during the day session. He appeared in several disguises ... these were received extremely well. That night, Graeme excelled in his role as MC. He combined the right balance of humour to entertain the audience, while at the same time handling the presentation of the awards with the dignity they deserved."
"I figured out pretty early that this was a set up but I didn't care, I was laughing so hard."
"Where did you find this guy? He was fantastic."
11th Underground Operators Conference
"Your hoax delivered the key messages that we wanted delivered in an entertaining and unique way. The night was one that they will never forget. The team loved what you did and are still talking about it."
John Holland Group
"My colleagues were humoured and stunned at times with your apparent local knowledge and insights, laughing all the way to dessert."
Brambles Industrial Services
"Thank you very much for your excellent presentation. You had many in the audience convinced of your "qualifications" for some time, including during the pre-dinner drinks, when you were discussing work in the North Sea! There were a lot of laughs throughout your talk and it was a talking point during the rest of the evening and the next day."
"Thank you for doing such a superb job of Bruce Attenborough, long lost brother of David, at our Management Summit. I am amazed with how you were able to captivate our audience, who, in the past, have been quite a challenging bunch to entertain or impress."
"Graeme was requested to be an overseas HR expert, and give a talk on new directions in HR. His preparation was extensive and his knowledge of the hoax topic was excellent. Feedback was nothing but glowing, which reiterates that he is one of the best in the business!"
"Graeme Bowman was fantastic. He had our clients and guests hooked from the start."
"It was terribly important that we had an MC that could carry the evening, with such a diverse range of industries represented. You did brilliantly."
Australian Institute of Project Management (1)
"Graeme's hoax speech was a highlight of the awards dinner. A completely believable and hilarious performance!"
Australian Institute of Project Management (2)
"Your scripting and speaker support material accurately reflected the input you gained through interviews with our senior management, and whilst it encapsulated several important but complicated concepts, you sympathetically pitched these to an appropriate level of sophistication for our audience."
