I have worked as a presenter in many languages; English, Catalan, Spanish, Italian and French, though I admit to being happiest and most comfortable in the first three.
I think I can say that I have covered almost every genre from conventions, congresses, business meetings and incentives to straightforward parties.
The clients have been so many and so varied over the years but here is a little resume of the most significant; Barcelona City Hall, Ascari, Samsung, Lufthansa, Amnesty International, the 19th World Petroleum Congress, or ESOF.
I have regularly worked with Ministers, heads of Government, (local, national and international), reigning Monarchs and the most brilliant and influential from all sectors including business, arts and culture and politics.
My work, though centred around Spain, has also taken me abroad to Britain, Italy, Sweden, Austria, Canada, Germany and France to name the ones that come to mind as I write.
Apart from the more conventional venues such as Barcelona’s Fira or the Feria in Madrid I have also had the good fortune to inaugurate a Formula 1 race track in Andalucia, extol the virtues of Barcelona as a SITE venue in a business centre in Toronto, conduct a business meeting on a boat on the Seine, entertain in a design hotel on Portugal’s Atlantic coast, improvise in front of a packed house in Barcelona’s Liceu opera or host a wine tasting on a house boat on the Rhine.
The work carried out has meandered between the most extreme protocol in the presence of the ex-Spanish King Juan Carlos I, to the funniest of humour with a marked British way of understanding comedy, although without the accent when required.
As well as streightforward MC work I have also often worked as an actor-presenter playing characters such as Lord Byron, Christopher Columbus, Dalí, Shylock or
so many others, both existing or of my own creation, that they would not fit here, if you would like to see more of my acting work please visit the link above: actor.
