Testimonials for Donald Mackee
We could not have been more pleased with the results! Donald was hilarious - providing everything from party trumpets, trivia competitions, energising games - to the special guest appearance and song and dance routine from 'Harry Sparkle" in an outfit that defies description."
Thanks for your support at our MBE conference, we have had exceptional feedback from clients and in fact I just got off the phone to one of them who raved about you and Robi and your ability to keep them engaged and attentive for the two days. From my perspective you were both a delight to work with you, very professional, very entertaining, presented with enthusiasm and passion and ensured the conference stayed on track for the two days. You made my job very easy as you basically managed the two days and the agenda. I look forward to working with you again soon Thank you.
Director of Marketing KAO Goldwell Australia
Staff Conference is a challenging job at the best of times and The Rechargeables added a whole new level to the role. They engaged, they entertained, they kept people organised and in order, they challenged and they made laughter. Most importantly, The Rechargeables treated the audience as though they were intelligent, so they had them in the palm of their hand. They were a true delight to work with and ultimately flexible. The Rechargeables are true professionals in this rare art. I simply cannot recommend them highly enough.
