A high-level conference or prestigious event is no place to experiment with an inexperienced MC, comedian or speaker. Graeme Bowman has a strong track record with blue-chip clients in the Transport, Shipping and Logistics industries.
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.

"The hoax speech was fantastic and beautifully fitted into the format of the evening."
Logistics Association of Australia
"Your performance as Master of Ceremonies and your delivery of a hoax speech was superb and really made a difference to the Awards ceremony."
Seafarers Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Authority
"Your portrayal of a USA based innovation specialist was first class. Our objective of injecting humour into the potentially tense situation of a change of ownership hit the spot exactly."
"Your ‘hoax' speech went down very well ... the audience were delighted with your performance."
"A very funny, professional performance. The group thoroughly enjoyed you. It was great to see people's faces as they gradually realised the supposed ‘expert' speaker was in fact a hoax."
"Your speech was just what the doctor ordered for our sales staff. The audience, being from a very international background, needed some humour that would traverse the cultural boundaries. The reaction was nothing short of a classic. Seeing staff sit up straight, fix their attire and pay so much attention to someone representing our new German owners was very entertaining. Seeing their reaction as it became obvious you were a hoax was just as entertaining. Staff are still referring to Dr. Heinrich Bauer, but only in relation to crazy ideas and sales tactics."
"Congratulations on the way in which the speech and subsequent unravelling went. The evening was a great success and contributed considerably to the overall excitement and energy which was apparent over the following three days."
"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
"The audience were in rapturous laughter, transfixed on your routine."
"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!"
"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."
