A truly astonishing show! He interacted with the audience well, and was funny, entertaining and engaging all in one!
— Mark Ormerod, British Law Commission

ARE YOU CELEBRATING A COMPANY MILESTONE, HOLDING AN AWARDS DINNER OR HOSTING AN IMPORTANT BLACK TIE EVENT?

If so, these will probably sound familiar to you:

  • We need to impress our clients, sponsors and colleagues, so they'll still be talking about us for months after the event.
  • We'd like everyone to relax and enjoy themselves, not just talk about work all evening.
  • We want to prevent overcrowding at the bar, and avoid people getting drunk too early which could ruin the whole event.
  • We've got a lot planned, so we need a way to seat everyone for dinner quickly and to keep them seated between courses.
  • Our clients have high expectations and they've 'seen it all before', so we need something new and exciting with a real WOW factor to make our event even bigger and better than the last.

 

ALL HUSTLE NO HASSLE

Stress-free Solutions for a successful event

Over the past 12 years I've developed my performances to offer practical, stress-free solutions to the many challenges that occur at business events.

In booking me, you're not only hiring me to make your event fun, exciting and memorable but as a strong, reliable ambassador of your brand who's able to solve meaningful problems at your event to help make it a roaring success.

Nick was a true professional from start to finish.

 Engaging and entertaining guests during the drinks reception is a great way to avoid everyone congesting the bar at once and creates a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere.

CORPORATE DOESN'T MEAN BORING!

A great atmosphere is crucial and can be the make or break of any event.

  • We all dread being at ‘that party’ where no one is interacting and the room is filled with awkward, forced small talk, no one can relax and people end up leaving early or wishing they could.
  • Often people reach for alcohol in awkward situations, which can totally ruin an event if people get too drunk too early.
  • It's important to break the ice quickly, get everyone relaxed and set the right tone for the rest of the event.
 

How I can help:

  • I mingle with guests, approaching small groups with interactive and highly visual effects
  • Everything happens right in front of them and even in their own hands.
  • I get everyone chatting, laughing and having fun from the get-go, bringing people together and getting them to interact.
  • Once I've got everyone in the mood, I leave them with a great conversation starter and mutual talking points before moving on.

STAY ON TIME WITH 'TABLE TRICKERY'

Even meticulously planned events can be stressful and logistical nightmares when they run late

  • If guests are unable to hear announcements clearly they'll simply ignore them.
  • This wastes valuable time herding everyone into the dining area.
  • Other hold-ups occur when guests interfere with seating plans, or start wandering between tables before the next course. 
 

How I can help:

  • To get guests into their seats quickly and keep them there, I stop performing just before guests are seated.
  • I approach each table with a personal mini show. This gives them an incentive to find their seats quickly.
  • Guests remain in their seats for fear of missing out on their personal table show.
  • It's also an excellent way to keep conversations flowing with everyone having a great time. Let's face it, you can only hold a conversation about table decorations for so long.

THE WOW FACTOR

Events should be eventful!

  • Once the carbohydrates have kicked in, and the alcohol takes its toll, it can cause a bit of a 'lull'.

How I can help:

  • This is the perfect time for me to perform my cabaret show to shake things up, either to get everyone primed for the after dinner proceedings or to round off the evening with a high-impact program finale.
  • The show is packed with intelligent humour and plenty of audience participation.
  • My performance will leave your guests excited and energised.
  • Guaranteed not only to have them in stitches of laughter throughout, this show will have them talking about your event for many months after. 
 
 
Nick Stein has worked at many of our world-class events. Our clients are always full of praise for his performances.
