Champions Speakers

Earlier this month I wrote a blog post about event hosting, something I am doing more of. A friend read this and effected an introduction to the Champions Speakers agency, who have taken me on.

"Is that your best friendly, approachable event-hosting face? Are you sure?"
They've got everyone from Michael McIntyre to Jo Brand to Gyles Brandreth to Donal MacIntyre so it feels like I'm in good company.

This is the link to my page on their website, which has all sorts of biographical revelations beneath a rather stern-looking photo.

We'll see how it works out.

Event hosting

This year I seem to be hosting a number of events and giving the odd talk. I like doing this, so if you want to have a chat about any forthcoming event you are holding, please get in touch.

Here is a testimonial from Susie Marshall at Johnston Press South Events about an awards ceremony I hosted in July this year:

"We hold a number of events throughout the year, many of which are prestigious black tie events. We are all too aware of how important it is to have a speaker who is not only engaging, charismatic and professional but is also able to create an atmosphere and maintain it. We hired Nick Wallis for some of our regional business awards and he was all of the above. Not only did the audience love him but he knew exactly how to keep everything going, moving things along when needed, giving people time when needed, he was an absolute pleasure and professional to work with. I felt completely relaxed leaving Nick to run the stage and would not hesitate to use him again in future."

I can also facilitate panel or audience debates, interview celebrities/politicians/business leaders etc as required.

By the way, I have received other testimonials for my work, but they are all before I took up the breakfast show at BBC Surrey and are therefore ancient.

If you want to know what I would have been like to hire 6+ years ago, have a look at this blog post, cunningly called Testimonials. I have put Susie's kind words into that post and will continue to update it so that it hopefully builds into a long and convincing litany of up-to-date recommendations.

Please share this (or that Testimonials) post around if you are so inclined.

Thanks.
