Helping You Achieve Success
Supporting Your Event and Your Stakeholders

Why Engage a Professional Master of Ceremonies?
Or more specifically, why work with me? I become part of your team working towards the common goal of achieving the best possible outcomes across a number of areas…
When it’s time to bring it all together, I approach the ‘up front’ part of the job with a relaxed, confident style that can be adjusted to suit the mood and nature of your event and audience.
Enhanced Guest Experience
I am always thinking from the audience’s point of view.
What do they need to know?
How do they feel about what they just saw?
What messages need to be conveyed?
How can I add to the connection between the audience and those on stage?
I ensure I liaise closely with other event staff so that my part of the ‘chain’ is strong. On those occasions when things don’t quite go to plan behind-the-scenes, I stay calm and manage the public side of the situation for the best possible outcome.
Best Possible Results for Stakeholders
I always ensure that sponsors and others who require recognition get what has been promised to them, and more if possible.
As a marketing and communications professional, I have experience constructing relevant (but not overbearing) promotional messages. I can also conduct quality interviews.
Less Stress for the Event Manager
As an event organiser, there is peace of mind in knowing that the person who is the public voice of your event is capable, professional, and has your back.
Unlike many professional MC’s, I didn’t get into this line of work because of who I am. I’m not a celebrity, media personality, or retired sportsperson. Simply, it’s more about what I do which is all based around preparation, cooperation, and presentation to achieve the best possible results.
Service Area: I mainly work around the Wide Bay region of Queensland however I am happy to travel to all areas. No travel charges apply for events in these regions – Bundaberg, Fraser Coast, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Toowoomba, North and South Burnett, and Gladstone.
By the way, this is just part of my overall business, Wise Words Communications. I am also a communications skills trainer, copywriter, and marketing and communications strategist. Plus, I have been in your shoes as the overall event organiser.
I’d love to talk with you about how we can work together.
What Event Managers Are Saying…
“An extraordinary amount of time and effort went into planning the day long Emerging Markets Forum – planning that can come undone very quickly on the day without a polished Master of Ceremonies. Thankfully our planning included David Wise as MC who had done his ‘homework’, welcoming the Queensland Trade Commissioners to China and South Korea in their languages, not to mention pronouncing their names correctly – acknowledged by all in the audience. David also studied the background of all the speakers and their field of expertise coming across very naturally and comfortable throughout the whole day – a very accomplished MC.”Peter Peterson
“I’ve used David on several occasions for a range of different events in his capacity as a speaker and on every instance he has gone above and beyond to deliver. Not only is he an exceptional host and speaker, David was always happy to provide recommendations and insight into the strategic delivery of the event.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for an experienced and respected event host, speaker or MC.”Aaron Ng
In my experience as Events Coordinator, the key elements which have enabled event success for me include comprehensive planning, creative and detailed organisation, and careful, systematic communication with everyone involved. In keeping with these imperatives, we were privileged to have David Wise as our MC for the Bargara Strawberry Fair. With his impeccable eye for detail and his methodical, creative and thorough approach, David soon gained our confidence. His planning proceeded with purpose and precision.
An articulate and skilful communicator, David delivered a very professional presentation for our Fair.Beth Scott
