TESTIMONIALS

  • “John has been working with the Department of Accounting and Corporate Governance, Macquarie University as trainer, since 2014. He conducts sessions on Presentation Skills and Australian Business Workplace in one of the third year accounting units. The formal and informal feedback I have received from students suggests that students thoroughly enjoy John’s presentations. His delivery is so engaging that students lose all track of time. John is a very effective speaker and educator. He is a great user of humour and stories, with great content. I would highly encourage other non-accounting students to attend.”

    John was a pleasure to deal with & threw up some unique ideas. We valued the experience John was able to add to the wedding, allowing us to sit back enjoy the day with confidence.

  • “My wife and I just watched our wedding video for the first time and it reminded us how truly amazing our day was.

    Thank you John for all your assistance on the day. Not only were you professional and easy to deal with, you spoke very clear and had the guests engaged the whole time which is what we loved.

    Furthermore you also helped manage our formalities and made sure they were done on time, which made our night flow seamlessly.

    We were blown away with the creativity and the effort you went to! It’s for this reason I have absolutely no issues referring you to each and every person I know looking for a MC. Thank you for making our dream wedding become a reality!”

  • “John’s ability to capture an audience is truly unique. Not only is he incredibly entertaining and hilariously funny, he is also highly articulate, easy to understand, and as warm and charismatic as they come. Overall, he is as natural and comfortable in front of a crowd as he is in his own skin and this really shines through.

    John is also exceptionally organised and professional no matter the occasion, he comes well prepared and highly focused. Furthermore, John is a very talented musician, able to effortlessly jump between genres of comedy, heart felt sincerity and song, enthusing the crowd throughout the entire journey.”

  • “Over the past five years I have worked with John Anthony in both a corporate capacity and in a VET capacity and I have always found John to be a great person to work with.

    John cares about his students and he gives them the full attention in and out of the classroom, where they respond to his training well, but most importantly look to him as a guide to help them with their future careers.”

    He has a very open style, a great sense of humour and in addition gets on well with everyone he deals with.

  • The wonderfully engaging, silver-tongued and all round legend, John Anthony created an atmosphere and environment that was all we had hoped for and everything we didn’t know we wanted! For our first big formal event, how important it was to have the right person front and centre, steering the ship and by golly did we find the right Captain. John, thank you.

    Little Heroes Swim Academy,
  • “John’s ability to capture an audience is truly unique. On our ‘big day’ not only was he incredibly entertaining and hilariously funny, he was also highly articulate, easy to understand, and as warm and charismatic as they come. John also happens to be a talented musician, so he wowed our guests by effortlessly jumping between comedy, heart felt sincerity and then song, enthusing the crowd throughout the entire journey!

    Critical to any bride, John was also exceptionally organised and professional, coming well prepared and highly focused. In fact, so many guests commented that night (and still to this day!) that he was the best MC they have ever seen.”

  • I worked with John Anthony as part of the CommInsure Training team for several years.

    I have worked in the learning & development space for nearly 15 years, and can honestly say I have never seen another learning professional bring so much good energy into a room.  You cannot underestimate the importance of this when it comes to training in the finance & insurance world.

    John is always focussed on participants achieving their objectives and works hard to ensure that the end goals are achieved.

    Whether it is in learning design or delivery, John has always been thoroughly professional, committed to excellence and a lot of fun to work with.”

His background in music, film & creative arts, coupled with strong commercial acumen is the perfect combination to allow him to deliver energetic session in which participants both benefit from technically, but also walk away energised and engaged. John is a creative thinker who challenges the status quo, he is passionate about what he does and committed to achieving outstanding results.”

  • I’ve completed several courses with John and every time I have been blown away by his innovative and engaging style, his exuberance and enthusiasm and his ability to make even the most boring of subjects interesting. He’s always at the ready with handy information, useful tools and ways in which the skills learnt can be applied in the workplace and every day. His sessions were a great mix of information and interactive learning, and I thoroughly enjoyed his fresh approach and style.

  • “I had the pleasure of working with John when I first moved into a facilitation role with CBA in 2005. Being new to the world of Learning & Development at the time, I needed considerable coaching, support and guidance. John took me under his wing and taught me everything he knew – from how to complete a training needs analysis and manage stakeholders, to developing high quality learning solutions and facilitating with style! After 11 years+ working in Learning & Development, I can still say John is the most energetic and engaging facilitator I have ever worked with. His facilitation style is unlike any other, striking the perfect balance between animated humour and professionalism, and allowing his participants to truly enjoy the learning experience!”
