Luke is primed and ready for the next challenge.

Luke Taplin recently hosted a NZME & V Energy activation at Queens Wharf on the 16th & 17th October 2015. The gig wasn’t an easy one as Luke had to keep the crowd entertained for a massive 4 hours on Friday and then 6 hours on Saturday. He was not provided with a massive amount of content for his MC work so he was required to think quickly on the spot and engage with the crowd. Luke did a fantastic job at conversing with different types of people and keeping the crowd entertained over what was an extremely long period to MC. Luke was able to deliver great client focused information to the public as well as some quick witted & fun humour. Luke has MC’d other client activity for us and is one of the first people we look to, to work in this space. A key ability of Luke is his confidence and ability to adapt to any situation, weather the job requires a humorous tone or a serious tone he can do it all. I have full trust in his capabilities and highly recommend Luke for any work.
