"Terry is a fantastic MC. He is very professional and great to deal with. I love the way he really listens to the presentations and uses content to tie together the whole day. It enables delegates to have a cohesive and seamless experience that is imperative to a successful event. The fact that he is also a great Comedian is an additional bonus in keeping the energy alive in the room. I have full confidence in Terry and I would highly recommend him."

"Not unlike a jovial Hughesy onThe 7pm Project from across the ditch in Australia and has a charm of his own... Remarkably good."
“WEX are an IT Company, who have experienced phenomenal growth, and the challenges it presents. Terry presented a seminar on Change, and provided insights into the different personality types that make up the office environment. Presented with more than a touch of humour overlaying a serious message, the office was alive and buzzing afterwards. We have also contracted Terry to MC an event to our ELT team, again with great success”
Director Wex NZ
“Celebrating a 100 years as a company is a major achievement. So when we were put on a function for our professional peers to celebrate this milestone of achievement we really wanted it to go well. With this we wanted a speaker who would be informative and humorous. This would be crucial to the success of our major external event in celebrating our 100 years. We quickly settled on Terry Williams as the ideal speaker for us and when he was able to confirm his attendance we gave him a précis of what we hoped for – and he delivered. A witty , informative, challenging presentation that had the audience laughing as well as giving them great information to take away and ponder. The feedback from our guests has been excellent, Terry’s involvement made it the perfect event we were hoping for. Thank you Terry!”

“Terry is a delight. His energy and enthusiasm is contagious and his presentation hit the perfect note for our conference.

“Terry came to Nelson and presented to close to 200 of our clients. Even though the topic was potentially a little dry, Terry made the presentation fascinating and entertaining. Terry is a fantastic, entertaining speaker and the feedback we got from our clients was excellent. Thanks Terry for a great show on such an important subject”.
Robertson Chartered Accountants
"Your seminar helped transform our company in terms of building and keeping an effective team. I am a chronic sceptic of business seminars and the slightly evangelical feel that many of them have. Your presentation was focused on practical ideas from the real world, and all the better for it."
Kevin Townsend, CEO
"A class act... this new breed... attractive, charming, incredibly well prepared, has good material and, surprise of all surprises, he's actually very funny."
"A unique brand of comedy that inspires as well as entertains, with wisdom among some well-woven tales.”
"He takes to the stage like a seasoned pro... some of the best punchlines I’ve heard. Terry’s superb comedic timing and innate ability to tell and build up a good story will have you hooked. His stories are engaging, well written and just downright funny."
We recently engaged Terry as MC for eight different award ceremonies across the North Island. He adapted well to the different audiences and ensured that our programme was delivered within our tight timeframe while being entertaining and professional
New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards
"Terry is an engaging presenter and works well in small/large group situations. In my case we were wanting to use a comedy ‘bent’ to not only better engage with our customers, but also find innovative ways to consider issues, find solutions and of course ‘connect’ people. Terry did a brilliant job for us in this capacity. Highly recommended."
Jason Roberts, Marketing Manager
"The feedback I have received from our sponsors and media contacts re your performance last night has been 100% positive. I am confident your skills and most importantly "culture fit" will only but complement our desire to provide the most professional hospitality product within the series this season."
Glenn Middleton, Manager Operations
"Thank you, Terry. You are an ingenious performer who invigorated our audience with your rapid-fire repartee and observational wit. A skilled master of ceremonies, assured compere, and polished stand-up comedian.....you left our delegates screaming for more! Sincere thanks, for your commitment to our 2008 Asia Pacific Venue Industry Congress."
Asia-Pacific Venue Management Association

Eka Merdekawaty Talji
Key Media, Singapore (HR Summit 2011)
"Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did as MC. It was great being able to get on with what I was doing outside the room knowing that all was under control inside! The activities with the delegates worked a treat and really helped with the overall feel of the conference. I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a professional MC who is really cool to deal with!"
Annette Vao , Organiser

"Terry added spice and life to our conference. He educated and entertained us with examples of how to communicate with humour, and showed how breaking out of the day-to-day patterns of the workplace can make everyone’s work more enjoyable, and thus more effective."
Trimble Navigation New Zealand Limited
“Terry is a very engaging speaker who presents with passion, humor and a mischievous streak. He clearly knows his subject but much more importantly he is able to impart his knowledge and connects with the audience. He leaves you not just inspired to take action but with the information and tools to do so. Terry’s presentations were interesting, funny, thought-provoking and educational. Many of our delegates gave him two-thumbs up for his session and have asked to hear him speak again next year.“
Key Media, Singapore
“The best corporate entertainment I’ve ever been to.”
Professor Alan Stenger

"Terry’s session as Keynote Speaker finished our conference on the 'high' that we were looking for. His very humorous session gave us skills to apply not only in our businesses but also in our personal lives."
Rothbury Financial Services
"Terry rocked our world! We got him to do a stand-up routine at a celebration event for the whole Macpac team. Breaking all all the rules of stand-up comedy - 10 am start, the audience having no clue why they were there, and no lubricants - Terry had us rolling around the aisles. His gags were funny, original and often deliciously unpredictable. Thanks Terry for a great event."
Macpac Wilderness Equipment
"Why waste time looking for anyone else?"
"I thought you were really good - you are both funny and likeable, and from what I have seen of other comedians, the two don't always go together. I really enjoyed your bit of the evening."
