Business events host
On the business side, I am Corporate Presenter and Facilitator.
I have hosted a wide variety of business events, from the serious in-depth interview style to the awards show. Eg: multichannel marketing campaigns ceremonies, banking sales conventions, business webinars,...
My role is, of course, to keep it all on time – politely but firmly.
On the sports side, I have over a decade experience in presenting sports, especially in tennis.
I have been a Stadium Presenter, Master of Ceremonies at 40 Davis Cup and Fed Cup ties since 2002 (off Court: hosting Draw ceremonies, drawing up running orders, staging and timing on-court ceremonies ; on Court: presenting teams, launching national anthems, synthetising and emphasizing players’ records, interviewing players).
Last summer, I was an English & French Voice at the Rio 2016
Olympic and Paralympic Games (3 different sports)
I am also International Tennis Referee, currently acting as Deputy Referee at Roland-Garros.
I gained valuable experience about the dimension of great big events and about how, beyond technical skills, interpersonal and behavioural skills are important.
My style as MC certainly results from his Refereeing style: discretion, self-control and no over-excitement.
