AVIVO FAMILY FUN DAY

Sonali Pietro: sonali. pietro@avivo.org.au

Involvement Advisor and Event Manager

ROLE: MC

DATE: 04/05/2019

I contacted Kate Mac to MC an event with 150+ of my colleagues. The purpose of the event was to recognise and appreciate our employees and the work they do at our not-for-profit. Kate took the time to meet with us beforehand and communicated regularly in the lead-up to the event, but what we loved most was that she showed a genuine interest in the work we do. On the day, Kate blew us away with her energy and ability to engage our diverse audience with ease. Thanks Kate for putting your heart into our event, we wish you all the best!

 

AVIVO FAMILY FUN DAY

ZARELDA GOH: Zarelda.Goh@avivo.org.au

Campaign Adviser

We engaged Kate in May 2019 as the MC for our first Family Fun Day at Mounts Bay Sailing Club. We felt that Kate’s sunny disposition and engaging personality would 

make her a good fit for the organisation-wide event. We were not wrong. Kate kept the energy up during the event and connected with the audience. She was a real pleasure to work with!

Kate was very professional during the planning stages for our event and had some great input and suggestions that we hadn't thought of. Her attention to detail really showed on the day with her ability to recall on facts and interact with the crowd making the entire experience feel quite personal and genuine. Kate hosted 2 panels effortlessly and asked questions on the fly that kept everything running smoothly and directed the high profile panel of impressive women as a complete professional. Kate has an amazing bubbly personality which captivated the audience, and was a pleasure to work with.

WHTIFORDS BREWING CO. - MELBOURNE CUP 2018

AMIE CANTRILL: Amie@beerland.com.au

Group Marketing Manager

ROLE: MC 

DATE: 06/11/2018

 

This is the second time we’ve worked with Kate as an MC because the first time blew us away! This one was our big 2018 Melbourne Cup event at Whitfords Brewery which required Kate to work 2 big rooms, 2 separate events and with the added challenge of holding the attention of a crowed that likes a few drinks. Kate did not disappoint. She is all class but also a lot of fun. As an MC she is superb. Naturally knowledgeable, vivacious and sassy. She captivates her audience and holds the floor with her effortless energy, spirit and humour. She’s exciting, entertaining and very easy to work with, I look forward to working with her more in the future.

LIVIN UNMASKED BALL

MELISSA LAMB-JUSTINS: melissalamb8@gmail.com

Event Coordinator

ROLE: MC

"Kate was the MC for our inaugural ball on the 13th of October. The entire evening went off without a hitch, largely due to us utilising a professional like Kate. The way she worked with us in the lead up and on the night made everything run on time as planned, without fuss and was done brilliantly. Even though we were slight control freaks with the run sheet we were very impressed with the way Kate kept us well informed of what was happening and when so there was never a need to rush, nor did we have to worry about anything other than enjoying ourselves. You can be rest assured Kate was a flawless MC and we would highly recommend her. 

THE ROTTNEST SWIM RUN

ANGUS FIRTH: gus.firth@gmail.com

ROLE: MC

DATE: 10/03/2018

'Kate Mac hosted our event in 2018 and we could not have been happier with the result. As a new event, showcasing a relatively new sport in WA, how we communicated with competitors and supporters on the day was as important as what we communicated. Kate Mac just ‘got this’ from the get go, delivering on the brief to a tee. Her commentary of the race was professional but personable and her impromptu interviews with finishing teams were insightful, light-hearted and completely captured the spirit of the event. Competitor feedback has consistently referenced her work as helping take the event up another level on our efforts last year. We very much hope Kate Mac will be back for the Rottnest SwimRun in 2019 and couldn’t recommend her services more highly.'

 

NORTHBRIDGE BREWING CO. - Chilli Festival

NADIA LEVY: nadia@northbridgebrewingco.com.au

Marketing & Events Manager

ROLE: MC

DATE: 30/05/2018

'We had the pleasure of having the fabulous Kate Mac host our Chilli Week PR Launch Event on behalf of Beerland, held at Northbridge Brewing Co in May this year. It was a very hectic and time restrictive affair with some of Perth’s most prominent media dignitaries in attendance, but she took it all in her stride by remaining professional, upbeat and kept the momentum high which made the entire evening so much fun and enjoyable for all. It goes without saying that we would have her back to host future events in a heartbeat - thank you again, Kate!'

“We sourced Kate Mac knowing she was one of the most charismatic MCs in Perth and with her personal passion for Health & Wellness she a great fit. What we didn’t realise was just how warm and engaging she was when put on the spot and how much she could personally connect with the audience. There were moments we could see the audience completely in awe of her, it was beautiful to watch. We were incredibly grateful to have her as part of the Festival - she was the perfect choice”

‘Kate was the perfect speaker for Uber’s International Women’s Day event in Perth. She has a special ability to share her unique and personal story in a way that rings true for women of all paths and backgrounds.

POSITIVE LIFESTYLE EXPO

NORITA OMAR: hello@striveandthrive.com.au

Founder, Event Organsier

ROLE: Guest Speaker

Kate Mac was our celebrity speaker at last year’s Positive Life Expo and Workshops. I met Kate when we both presented at UBER’s International Women’s Day in 2018. I loved her vulnerability when she spoke of her challenges working in the media industry. The first time I heard her story on dealing with anxiety and expectations of those you worked with, it was so emotional that I instantly felt a connection with her as I too had similar experiences. I could see through her sincerity in sharing her story to help others. At our PLEW2018, I received a lot of positive feedback about her talk on tapping into intuition etc. Over everything, one thing I love about Kate is her humility and warmness towards others. I would highly recommend Kate Mac to any organisation who wishes to have a speaker who is courageous enough to talk about her story and her journey with anxiety. I’m sure she would touch other people’s lives positively like what she did with mine.

 

BEE FIRM NRG LAUNCH

MICHAEL J BOROWIEC: Mike@beefirm-nrg.com.au 

Brand Development Manager

ROLE: MC

‘We engaged Kate in March 2017 to host the launch party of our new beverage company Bee Firm NRG Natural honey drinks. We had heard Kate’s work on Nova 937 and her elocution and relatable personality made her a great fit for what we wanted on the night. We provided a run sheet which she diligently ran through introducing and interacting with several of our athletes and director and when when a gap appeared in the sheet, she ad-libbed wonderfully to keep the momentum going with the audience. 

It was important for us to utilise a professional who could hold the crowd and keep the flow rolling along and Kate filled the role perfectly. We would highly recommend her and would have her back at any of our future functions.’
