I have recently worked with Steve on two high-profile events, and on both occasions he exceeded my very high expectations. The first was a week-long cruise where he was not only acting as compere, singer and comedian, but also hosting some complicated tailor-made events which meant thinking on his feet, dealing with last-minute changes to content, and improvising when technical challenges were thrown his way. The second was hosting a Gala evening for a client's mid-summer party, where their top customers were the guests. Again, he managed to charm, entertain (and control!) an audience who had taken full advantage of an all-inclusive drinks package! Steve is the consummate professional - a talented all-round entertainer, who is also a really nice, down-to-earth guy! Not only would I recommend him without hesitation, I sincerely hope I have the opportunity to work with him again - Peter Squires; Managing Director – VIP Leisure Travel

Steve Walls you are a true professional, a legend, an all round phenomenal entertainer. It was such an honour for me to stand up there and host with you last night, You brought the room to life, you helped raise £20,000 for mesothelioma UK and Readley. It means that they can continue their incredible work. Our biggest heartfelt thanks and love to you for coming along and hosting for us - What a great singer you are to. Hope to see you soon, and don’t forget, I will sing George Ezra with you next time! - Christian Wain - JDR Cables

Steve is a fantastic host at the Care Awards. He is a very professional compère. He puts people at their ease, and he knows and understands the care sector. Steve is also really easy to work with. He is clear, professional and flexible in his approach, and makes sure every event is both enjoyable and successful- Professor Martin Green - Chief Executive; Care England

Steve is a really fantastic compère. He understands his audience and is an absolute professional. He is also great to work with and a really nice bloke. I have been at several events when Steve has been the compère and he has always been excellent. Very highly recommended - Terry Collins – Chief Executive; Durham County Council

Steve is a great compère and his professionalism meant that as organiser, I could actually enjoy our dinner which he ran seamlessly. I have had the pleasure of seeing him at two further awards dinners this year and he did it again! Next time I will ask him to sing - it really adds to the occasion - Penny Marshall – Regional Director, North East & Yorkshire and Humber at Institution Of Civil Engineers

Dear Steve, We would like to say a huge "Thank You" for compering at our very first event for Your Big C and Me. We raised a colossal amount, and the ball was a massive success. You set a professional tone from the start and a great atmosphere with your singing during the meal. The raffle and auction raised most of the funds with you at the helm. We were so lucky to have the best compère in the North East with us! Thanks again, Kind regards - Helen Davis - Your Big C and me

Steve is the ultimate professional and kept the night running from start to finish. We were complete novices at pulling a big event together, and Steve kindly held our hands through the whole event process. His performance was second to none and so many of our customers were so impressed, I think he ran out of business cards on the night! You have to use this guy! - Chris Harrison; Sales & Marketing Director - Dawson & Sanderson Ltd

Hi Steve, thank you so much for Thursday -you were an excellent compere and your singing during dinner was perfectly pitched, adding to the ambience and the conversation. I would certainly look to use your talents again, and would most definitely recommend you to peers and colleagues - Amanda Tomlinson; Chief Executive - Black Country Housing Group

I would have no hesitation in recommending you for any future events – You are a marvellous Master of Ceremonies! Kindest regards - Susanne Kennedy; Senior Customer Experience Manager - TUI

We booked Steve to compere a ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ event in Mayfair. The high quality standard of the venue and event was matched by Steve’s professionalism. He was slick and humorous throughout the evening and kept the attention of a notoriously difficult audience. I really enjoyed working with him during the opening speech, heads and tails fund raiser and the auction, all of which were very professional and successful - Andrew Gibson; Chairman - West End Office Agents Society.

Funny and engaging, an excellent evening superbly hosted, I’d recommend Steve to anyone - The Right Hon. James Wharton; MP

Steve hosted our internal awards ceremony and wowed the guests. His professional and personable approach shone through from the briefing meetings before the event to the night itself. I was particularly impressed with how well he engaged the audience and created a great atmosphere in the room. He worked hard to make our event very special and even sang (brilliantly!) during dinner. Thanks Steve - Louise Hunter; Director of Corporate Affairs - Northumbrian Water

 I would have no hesitation in recommending Steve to host any high-level Annual dinner or Awards ceremony.
He did an outstanding job for us at our recent Summer Ball & Awards, dealing with unexpected issues as they arose which is just what you want from a compere, and providing the right combination of professionalism and humour. The best host we have ever had, and one which we will certainly be using again. Thank you - Nikki Silcock - Branch Manager | CIOB North East
