  • I had the great pleasure of working with Danny for the Professional Convention Management Association’s Canadian Innovation Conference (PCMA CIC) in November 2017. As the Co-Chair, Danny exhibited professionalism in preparation and flexibility in our needs leading up to the conference. We loved Danny and so did our delegates! He is a welcomed rarity for an Emcee in that he actually becomes part of the conference. He is entertaining, spontaneously witty, charming, comical and creative. He is truly one of the best Emcees I’ve ever worked with. I give him my highest recommendation! - Krista Cameron, PCMA CIC Co-Chair and Director of Sales, Destination St. John’s
  • His performance at our Conference Luncheon was rated amongst the top. He was very funny, knew exactly what the crowd was looking for and kept them in stitches. The small auction for charity was a success thanks to Danny—I would not hesitate to have him at future functions.
