The Brunswick Daily

We engaged Ben Sorensen to be our MC for the Grape Stomp Comp at the festival we held in The Timber Yard this year and we couldn’t be happier with the choice we did. Such a colourful character, funny, spontaneous and good looking too 😉. He did an awesome job and covered all the tasks we required of him with minimal briefing and time spent beforehand. We hope to utilise his skills again in future.

I have had the privilege of working with Ben and his team on the Vitality Show organised by Showtime Events. Ben is an amazing MC. He is able to adapt to any conditions and provide a perfect solution every time. He delivered an entertaining experience for our exhibitors and guests which was unique and professional.
