Here's some things our clients have said about Greg and the team:
"Des Lawson has certainly taken on a whole life of his own and developed a cult following within the Wellington community over these past 10 years.
It was an excellent performance and added considerably to a very successful night of celebration."
John Dow, Wellingtonian of the Year Awards
"Thanks Greg for the great night. Everyone was still talking about you on Friday."
Lynn Hansen, Nurse Managers' Conference
" Greg, you were great! Our varied audience; from dignitaries, trade industry executives, to our valued members and their partners were all catered for. Your versatility and sense of humour was just perfect! Thanks..."
Eve Cooper, NZ Certified Builders
"...the delegates thought they were great. Of special note was the Shakespearian segment - very clever."
Brenda Allum, Sports Medicine NZ
"Greg was our primary point of contact for the programme. We chose him as our partner because he totally ‘gets’ people and how they learn. He is great at the programme design piece. We loved his ability to improvise and to be able to quickly understand what we wanted and to translate this into a solution. Greg is highly responsive, a great problem solver and, as you’d expect, has a wonderful sense of humour! With a project of this scale, there were plenty of opportunities for things to go wrong (due to bad weather, transport problems, crew illness, participants being in the wrong place at the wrong time etc etc) but in reality we had very few issues and nothing that disrupted the plan! This is truly incredible. "
Christine Sewell, Head of Culture & Communications The Warehouse Group
"Greg is a very accomplished MC. His ability to improvise in ALL situations is an incredibly value commodity to have in an MC and not one that is easily found. His humour is appreciated by a very large majority of conference delegates, which again is unusual. Often humour can be polarising for audiences, but that is not the case with Greg."
Glenda Harding, Harding Consultants
"Greg is a very likeable professional who has a very proactive and energetic working style. His adaptability enables him to be a valued team member, in a number of industry sectors. We have found Greg to always be very well prepared and he also has the ability to act quickly on his feet, as and when required. Greg's experience with live sports events, where there is no second chance, is second to none..."
Steve Dunbar, CEO Wellington Sevens
"In a word - brilliant."
Joanna Batchelor, Plumbing World
"You are a totally professional act and we have loved working with you. There is no one else we would ever use!"
Leanne Fecser, NZ Veterinary Association
"The way you started off which had the audience on your side within 30 seconds! I've been racking my brains over it for days trying to figure out WHY it worked, and I still don't know! ...you obviously know your stuff (which I knew and which is why I hired you)."
Francesco van Eerd, Fragrifert
"Thanks for today, everyone loved it and was a huge success, especially at such short notice - YOU SAVED MY LIFE!!!!"
Lesley Enright, Naylor Love
"Great quality MCing!"
Phillip Harris, Mary Potter Hospice
"Greg is an absolute delight to work with. He really takes the time to understand the business, the issue and then sets diligently about finding a creative way to solve it with the business. He takes the work really seriously but genuinely believes that laughing is the best way to solve and issue and the results that this approach delivers should not be underestimated. Our team members loved him and the message got through loud and clear. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Greg again in the future or to recommend him."
Anna Campbell, Chief People Officer at The Warehouse Group
" Greg was super easy to work with and the improvisation worked perfectly with time changes on the day. I really enjoyed working with Greg, he was friendly and knew the audience and the content of the day. I will definitely recommend Greg as an MC for the next events to come."
Christine Pugh, Grow Wellington
