“I have organised many conferences over the past 30 years and it is extremely rare to find a compère as entertaining and as professional as Steve. He is at the very top of my very short list of people to work with. Off-stage he was brilliant, providing the organising team with support and advice to make the event go smoothly. On-stage he was entertaining, witty and thoroughly engaging. If you want a compère who is highly professional, entertaining, sticks to time and engages the audience, you do not need to look any further; you have found him.”
Graham Jones, Helping you understand your customer behavior

“Working with Steve Bustin takes all the stress out of your event preparation. Bringing years of experience to the table you can rest assured that he will add a capital P to professionalism and your audiences will love him.”
Tracey Allen, SEA PR

“We recently had the great pleasure of having Steve Bustin as our Master of Ceremonies (MC) for the University of Brighton’s Enterprise Awards. Steve was a delight to work with, and set the tone perfectly for one of the biggest high profile events for my department. Steve responded really well to our brief, and was an integral part of the success of the night! This was the first time that I have worked with Steve, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a professional MC, who is flexible, humorous, and creative. If we have an event of a similar caliber next year, we will definitely be inviting him back.”
Clare Griffiths, University of Brighton

“Finding the right compère for a major business event is tricky – you’ve got to find someone who can balance the professional and business tone of the day with being warm, welcoming and entertaining. When Steve recently compèred the largest and most complex event we’ve ever delivered, he did all that and more. Quite frankly I’m fed up with the delegates emailing me to tell me how good they thought he was. Fun and easy to work with, Steve took direction from us but also offered advice and suggestions, based on his extensive experience, that really lifted the event in terms of pace, tone, humour and professionalism. Very happy to recommend him.”
Julia Chanteray, President, Brighton and Hove Chamber of Commerce

“Steve Bustin was recently the Master of Ceremonies at our MEGA Conference for The Professional Speaking Association held at Wokefield Park in Reading. The 200+ audience of professional speakers were kept entertained and informed by Steve as he helped to keep the programme moving to time. He did a thoroughly professional job as compere and I wholeheartedly recommend Steve to anyone needing a professional MC for their conference.”
Mike Ogilvie, National President of The Professional Speaking Association
