On Saturday 27 August 2016, I had the pleasure of being the master of ceremony for the Presley and Powers Show, supporting the STOP: ONE PUNCH CAN KILL campaign. I was approached by two working mothers, Lina and Estelle who decided months before hand to voluntarily donate their time and resources to organise a charity event about a matter close to their hearts. The STOP One Punch Can Kill began after the tragic death of David Cassai on new years eve 2012 from a senseless, unprovoked violent attack ending his life with a ferocious one punch. This night raised money and increases awareness about the ramifications of how a split second action permanently ruins lives and families forever. Cong
Hi Simon, Daniel and I would just like to say a big thank you to you for agreeing to be our Wedding MC. Your professionalism was second-to-none, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. You went above and beyond the call of duty, making every aspect of our reception enjoyable and worry-free. We really appreciated the amount of effort you put in behind-the-scenes to make our night seamless. We would gladly recommend you and sing your praises to anyone! Wishing you all the best and hopefully we will cross paths again in the near future. Vanessa and Daniel’s Wedding, Quat Quatta Ripponlea, 21 August 2016
I am often asked what a Master of Ceremony does and I hope I have truly captured that on my website.

Pictures tell a thousand words and there are an abundance to guide, assist and plan your next function. Their website can also be found at: www.functionroomsinmelbourne.com.au
On Tuesday 2 August, I had the pleasure on behalf of Football Federation Australia to be the master of ceremony for a round of 32 Football Federation of Australia (FFA) Cup match between Victorian State Club Green Gully, based in the north western Melbourne Suburb of Keilor, up against A-League outfit the Central Coast Mariners from Gosford in New South Wales. Few pundits gave Green Gully any chance of defeating a much stronger and professional opposition, considering that only one state league team had previously defeated an A-League opponent in the competition’s history.
