Dan has worked for numerous South African corporates, including Vodacom, Absa, Audi, Telkom, Sanlam, Brandhouse, FNB, adidas, and South African Airways. Here's a selection of comments from very satisfied clients...
Having had the painful pleasure
attending many functions where Dan acted as the master of ceremony, I can report
that he is not as bad as people say. As an MC, he is a class act! His intellect,
humour and creative use of English had me rushing home to grab the Oxford just to
realise that yet again, I have been stitched up. He has turned many a function into
a special event. Top man!
Dan's MC'd all our formal
for the Absa Cape Epic since 2006, including nightly at the event, our media
launches and our annual black tie Route Launch Charity Gala. His combination of
utter professionalism, wicked humour
and sporting knowledge guarantees an entertaining function that always achieves
its goals. Luckily we signed a lifetime contract with him, since I doubt we'd be able
to afford what he is probably charging nowadays! (I've subsequently agreed that he
can escape his contract if he finishes the Absa Cape Epic himself!)
We at adidas SA have used Dan
Nicholl to MC various of
our instore player promotions to date. He has always
conducted himself in the most professional way and always comes well prepared for
the event. He is liked by all
the athletes who enjoy his light hearted banter as he conducts himself.
We at TaylorMade are very
of our sponsored player and 'touring pro' who we are happy to be associated with.
He epitomises the qualities to be found in what we consider to be the ultimate
professional, not only in stature, personality and playing prowess, but also in his
eloquent abilities with a microphone.
Dan is an accomplished speaker,
and with his inspiring and passionate sense of sport, has entertained various Sanlam
clients at our sporting events. I have been to various golf days and seen many MC's.
Dan Nicholl is the best in the industry. You are in for a real treat.
With his eloquence, sense of
humour, sharp wit and a calm collectedness that matches Tiger Woods on a final day
of a Major, Dan Nicholl epitomises everything that makes for a great MC, rendering
him arguably one of the best MC's in the business. It is a rare privilege having him as
MC at any event.
Dan- a truly professional,
eloquent, quick-witted, intelligent individual who can and does bring any occasion
alive having people sit with abated breath and eating from his hand! He is so good,
that he should have been South African and a SACS graduate...
