‘Rob joined Reckon as part of our 2020 R U OK Day initiative via Teams (thanks COVID) to share his story and the importance of checking in on others.

When we engaged Rob as MC and host for our 25th birthday event, we knew from the start he would be the perfect fit. This huge staged event was our biggest ever game of Musical Chairs, held in the centre of Sydney and filmed by Channel 7. It ran for over two hours and Rob was outstanding throughout the entire duration. He kept the audience and the participants thoroughly entertained. He was witty and spontaneous and knew exactly what to say and when. Everybody had a fantastic time. This event would definitely have not been a success without him and we would definitely consider him for any future events.

Rob’s a charming guy, thoroughly professional, and a great sport. Apart from performing at, and MCing our event, he also bought right into a few of our team doing a “Grease” pastiche with him and his white-hot band. Brought the house down! I would unhesitatingly recommend Rob. Top bloke.

Rob acted as an MC/performer for us at our MFAA Mad Hatter gala event. Rob was very professional and entertaining and kept the crowd on their feet with an outstanding performance as well as a witty hand written MC speech to engage our audience and introduce the event. In character (as the Mad Hatter) he was more than happy to mingle and take photos with our guests. Rob was more than at home in front of an audience and carried out his MC duties with grace, humour and considerable presence. I would thoroughly recommend Rob as an MC and or a performer for any event.
