I’ve had the pleasure of working with Deeksie for over 10 years and he is without doubt the ultimate professional.
Whether it’s MCing or crowd warmups for 2500+ people, presenting and hosting live TV with only a couple of minutes notice or delivering live or pre-recorded voice overs with confidence and perfection, Deeksie nails it every time.

John “Deeksie” Deeks, is the ultimate professional. He is obliging, flexible, personable, engaging and puts in 110% into anything asked of him.
Sandringham Yacht Club (SYC) has utilised John”s M.C. services for many Club events and voicing services for our phone messaging system. With a group of other SYC members, he has also been involved in a series of member podcasts, which are all well received.
I wouldn”t hesitate in recommending John as an M.C. for any corporate event or his voice over work, especially with his recognisable dulcet tones and the warmth and passion he brings to his work.Naomi | Club Events – Sandringham Yacht Club
I have used John Deeks on many occasions for a variety of events as the Master of Ceremonies and have received spectacular feedback every time.
He makes whatever moment, just that more memorable and goes above and beyond to ensure the people that are in the room feel more and more a part of the event.
I would highly recommend John Deeks for any event that requires a professional and personable M.C.Sean Woodard Producer 3AW Melbourne
John Deeks is the definition of a good MC. He is bright and researched, runs well to a strict timeline and can equally ad-lib and interact with an audience.
He makes events fun and engaging, whilst adhering to the schedule. He is always extremely polite and upbeat, and is clever at seeing opportunities to
add some humour and cheekiness to an event. He is also amazingly sincere, the nature of the work we do at Very Special Kids is tough and always emotional, and John is particularly delicate in supporting our bereaved parents who often share their unfathomable journey with our stakeholders.
We will continue to use John and I cannot recommend him more highly for any event, he fits right in to any situation.Michael Walsey CEO. Very Special Kids
John Deeks was the master of ceremonies for my wedding and he did an exceptional job.
His ability to think on his feet made sure that the whole wedding ran flawlessly even when issues were arising.
John also engaged with all our guests to make it a memorable evening. He went out of his way to meet with me multiple times leading up to the wedding to assure he was well prepared for the day.
Johns professionalism, articulation and attention to detail is unparalleled and I could not recommend him with a higher commendation!Cèline Khoury and Beshoy Tawadros
He engulfed ambiance and made our evening truly magical!
