Testimonials for Ben Sorensen
We engaged Ben Sorensen to be our MC for the Grape Stomp Comp at the festival we held in The Timber Yard this year and we couldn't be happier with the choice we did. Such a colourful character, funny, spontaneous and good looking too 😉. He did an awesome job and covered all the tasks we required of him with minimal briefing and time spent beforehand. We hope to utilise his skills again in future.
Wine and Cheese Fest
Ben is as professional as he is entertaining.
He went above and beyond for us in his MC role at our Christmas Party by embracing our 90’s theme and engaging with our staff. When Ben mentioned he had written over 200 90’s references and the fact he was one of the first people at the function (and lasted well into the night!) clearly showed a commitment and dedication that exceeded our expectations. Ben’s documentation of our event through photos and videos captured our event from a perspective not otherwise considered which has ensured the memorable (and not so memorable) moments of the night are never forgotten. Leading up to the event, Ben was very active in planning and understanding our needs for the night while on the night was very much making sure the program went as smoothly as it did. While events like this always have something go wrong, with Ben as our MC he was able to use his experience to steer the waves of the night and deliver one of the more memorable functions our company has seen. Not only have we gained an MC and entertainer for future events but also a friend. If you are looking for an MC or entertainer for your next function, you can’t go wrong with Ben Sorensen.
Thanks for making our night, Ben
Ben’s like a swiss army knife, not only he knows about tech but he also knows about marketing, he does trivia shows and is a great communicator.
The Brunswick Daily
Ben was quick-witted and interactive, and seemed to thrive off the energy of those playing along. Never shying away from an opportunity for banter, Ben’s manner kept the spirits high.
Melbourne International Comedy Festival Review 2021
I have had the privilege of working with Ben and his team on the Vitality Show organised by Showtime Events. Ben is an amazing MC. He is able to adapt to any conditions and provide a perfect solution every time. He delivered an entertaining experience for our exhibitors and guests which was unique and professional.
Showtime Events Australia
The quality of work done far exceed our expectations, and we have received several compliments!
Ben is a pleasure to work with. We recently asked him to compare our Abacus Competition which was a totally new concept. Even though he was given only sketchy details on a topic he knew nothing about, he brought life and energy to the event and managed to generate a great deal of interest and enthusiasm from the crowd. He is confident, professional and seems to have ideas and solutions for any scenario. We look forward to working with him on future activities.
Retail First Sunnybank Plaza
…He (Ben) impressed audiences with his voice and was confident and professional in his delivery…. I would not hesitate to work with Ben again and highly recommend him for any work requiring the use of voice, stage presentation or singing. He has a wicked sense of humour that we all enjoyed and is more than willing to be a good team participant.
The depth of knowledge and tremendous resource base that Ben Sorensen draws from is first rate and can not be faltered.
Pine Rivers Shire Council
