The induction function was an outstanding success, in so many ways a tribute to Bruce’s skilled MC’ing of the evening If you are planning an event where you are anxious to make a good impression, I strongly recommend Bruce Hopkins as your Master of Ceremonies “-

Dr Phil Handcock, Otago University

‘… The origins of the Master of Ceremonies may have developed from the time Emperor Constantine the Great gave the Lateran Palace to the popes (324) or from the time Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire (380) …’

"Gidday, my name is Bruce Hopkins, thanks for stopping by.
I am an award winning Master of Ceremonies, and have been acknowledged by many clients as one of the best in the business.
If you are looking to engage an MC for your event, find out for yourself whether or not those clients knew what they were talking about, let me help make your event a resounding success.
When I am asked to perform the role of Master Of Ceremonies at conferences, public events or private gatherings, I commit to contributing above and beyond the call of duty.
My featured role in Peter Jackson's Lord Of The Rings trilogy of films, as well as the many other television, film and stage credits I have to my name, add just the right amount of …
“you're that guy on television eh?”… quality to my role as your MC, without detracting from the job at hand.
Drawing on a wealth of life experience, ranging from commercial crayfishing through to blockbuster film making, I have developed an MCing style which is always professional, relaxed, on topic and with the right balance of humour.
When MCing I am hands on, bringing a great work ethic to ensure your event flows seamlessly and achieves your desired outcomes.
So why don’t you consider taking Dr Phil Hancock's recommendation above, I’d love to help you out."
