Some conference hosts just turn up and take the cheque.
Some hosts don’t like to be put upon. They don’t need a client conference call before the event let alone actually meet the client in person. And then the event itself can even feel like something of an inconvenience for them… because they have better places to be!
They might say things like;
“I don’t need to be there at 4pm…”
“I don’t need to do a run through. I’ve done this a thousand times.”
Things that hardly inspire and make clients nervous.
Any professional event organiser will understand how crucial it is to book the right host; both in terms of the experience of their delegates but also how easy the host makes things for the organisers.
Dominic is happy to meet with clients to offer his own experience and make suggestions for how events can be lifted out from the ordinary and become memorable. He is happy to arrive when the client requires him to and he does all rehearsals necessary for producers and crew.
He will not just trot out the same generic speech. He will research and tailor his act wherever possible so that he is relevant to the people attending.
And let’s not forget that Dominic Holland is also a comedian of some repute and ability.
Dominic Holland is not a news reader!
He will not just read the script that is provided. Being a professional comedian and writer, he has a keen eye to pick out an irreverent line whilst never being defamatory – to create an entertaining and memorable evening.
“Dominic is not only a superb stand up comedian but an excellent host with a talent for turning an awards ceremony into an entertaining event by adding his own amusing ad libs into the script.”

“We so enjoyed having Dom speak at our annual conference, we decided to ask him back. Once again, he was hilarious, had real enthusiasm and energy, struck a great balance of laughter and respect for the audience. I’d happily and confidently recommend him.”
