Darren Isenberg's appeal has not been based on any fame or celebrity. Rather he is highly sought-after for one reason, and one reason only … because he is absolutely outstanding at what he does.
Corporates love him. Industry Associations love him. Franchise Groups love him. And what's not to love?
He is low ego, high quality, easy-going and flexible to deal with. He conducts extra research of the speakers he introduces, sprinkles their introductions with interesting facts and adds just the right amount of appropriate humour to keep delegates intrigued and energized.
Darren knows there are a lot of MC and speaker options out there and so is delighted to simply be chosen to be part of your event.
That’s why he has spoken at over seven hundred Conferences, Awards Nights, Road Shows and Special Events since he started out in 1995. And many of his clients book him again … and again … sometimes even ensuring Darren is free before setting the date for their event.
His expertise lies in creating a conference room in which delegates learn more and care more. In creating an Awards Night where attendees tune in for more than just the segment involving their Award category.
Delegates find that Darren’s informative and entertaining speaker introductions and expertly-crafted speaker wraps show he truly understands the aims of the speaker, the needs of the delegates and the messages the client is wanting to emphasise.
He arrives on-site impeccably prepared but always ready for the last-minute changes which are an inevitable feature of life at live events.
He writes all of his own scripts after researching the speakers, the client and the industry (and, naturally, includes any key points the client wishes to incorporate). How well does it feel to know your MC will actually save you a mountain of work?
He is an outstanding ad-libber, interviewer, facilitator and moderator. And, for repeat clients (if the conference program permits), he often gets in touch with the delegates and puts together exceptionally entertaining presentations on the highlights of their past year.
He can also provide captivating keynotes, facilitate panels and can even design and run team-building activities.
As a qualified educational professional (ie. a former economics teacher!) who learned quickly that education doesn’t simply take place by having people sit in front of a speaker, he is passionate about uplifting the effectiveness of education in the corporate world.
For that reason, from 2018, he is offering clients a special service as part of his role as MC called Conference Continuing Commitment Co-ordinator, which helps ensure the main messages and motivations gained at the conference are enduring months down the track.
His client list is extensive and impressive … from wealth management to waste management … from health providers to hair salons … and everything in-between …
Many of his repeat clients have been franchise groups, industry associations and financial services organisations and he’s one of the few
MCs on the circuit who gets repeat work from clients whose policy is to have a different MC each year!
And he is particularly proud of having been chosen to work as one of a select few facilitators on the Qantas “Stepping Up” program, which helped transform the National Airline after record-making losses.
