Enthusiastic and spontaneous; very interesting in group and absolutely hilarious.
Macquarie Bank

Excellent. Tim was fantastic and added greatly to the success of the night. If we don’t use him next year it will only be because we decide against using the same host two years in a row.
GBA Communications

Excellent. Tim was according to the audience ‘the best MC we have had’. He had them listening, interacting with them and maintained their interest.

I have been booking entertainers & MC’s for 20 years and Tim Ferguson would undisputably be the most professional, conscientious, diligent & charming MC I have ever had the pleasure to work with.
Coles Myer

Was highly entertaining and was very well received by the 175 people attending our dinner. The performance, in which he told his story from his days in Canberra, to the Doug Anthony Allstars to being diagnosed with MS, was both funny and inspirational.

Tim really connected with the audience, initial feedback from delegates was that Tim’s performance was one of the best we have seen in recent years.
