SIMON WALLER

event host and emcee

a thoughtful and dynamic event host for your next event

Over the last few years our understanding of what makes a great event host has changed. Whereas in the past an event host just needed to introduce the next speakers and read a pro forma bio, a modern event host need to be able to respond to the audience, manage the energy and keep the event on track.

Simon is an experienced and engaging event host who works across Australia and New Zealand. Over the last few years he has also built a successful online event business called Pirate TV. Through this Simon has developed extensive knowledge of virtual events and when he’s not on the road he works out of a fully equipped studio to ensure  both the quality and reliability of his online content.

As a futurist with deep experience in leadership and management Simon is particularly suited to hosting business and industry events. His inquisitive nature and breadth of interests means he is comfortable engaging with even the most experienced leaders and the most technical of content.

Simon ideally likes to get involved early in the event planning process so he can share his expertise on how to bring your events to life. If you’re seeking a thoughtful and dynamic event host for your next event please get in touch.
