Tennis Sussex Awards (November 16th 2013 at AMEX Community Stadium)
“Jack was a joy to work with in the build-up to our annual Tennis Sussex Awards and on the day Jack’s contributions were excellent and really warmly received by everyone in attendance, Jack created a brilliant atmosphere where everyone felt at ease ready to enjoy the afternoon, his professional delivery, comic timing and solid banter kept the ceremony moving and the smiles on everyone’s faces.
It was great to see Jack engaging so well not only with the group of 200+ throughout but also individually with nominees and winners.
We look forward to welcoming Jack back again in 2014 and would highly recommend him to others looking for a professional and enjoyable occasion.”
– Andy Trott, LTA Tennis Development Manager Sussex
“Jack was asked to compère our charities biggest fundraising event of the year being our charity golf day!

This guy is good!!!”

“Jack hosted the Brighton and Hove Albion hospitality lounge for 2 seasons and was always a total professional. He is great at engaging with a room full of people and was always a lot of fun. Even when the football team may have not got the result we wanted our guests and fans always left with a smile on their faces and that is no mean feat. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him as host for any event”
– Paul Rogers, Business development manager, Brighton & Hove Albion F.C.
“I have had the pleasure of working with Jack at some great venues over the past 6 years including Withdean Stadium, Brighton Racecourse, The Amex and Fontwell Park. Jack was the host for our charity event in 2012 at Fontwell Park for 350 guests and made the event run seamlessly, generated over £15k for the auction and made everyone feel welcome particularly with his extra special charm and wit! I would have no hesitation in recommending Jack for any private or corporate event”
– Dean Harding, Director, Hardings Catering Ltd
“Jack has hosted our annual Christmas fundraising ball at the Grand hotel in Brighton for the last 2 years and there is absolutely no one else we would have for the job!! Not only does he ensure the night runs effortlessly but his fun / high energy style of hosting and his interaction with the audience always ensure that our guests leave with huge smiles on their faces. It is also worth pointing out that he is no mean auctioneer either and our sports memorabilia auction that he hosts always raises a great amount for charity!! Look forward to seeing you in November Jack”
– Dean Brackenbridge, Functions manager, Hove Rugby Club
“Wickwoods is a private members club with 2000 local members. We used Jack to host a quiz night for us and I could have sold the event 5 times over. Our members & guest had a fantastic time and Jack provided a totally professional evening. His judgement of the mix of guests was great and he injected exactly the right level of humour and banter which the members loved. Our only problem is now nothing else will do so, we’ve already booked the next one!”
– Vanesa Goossens, Operations Director, Wickwoods Country Club, Hotel & Spa
