Need a webinar host?

During the Covid-19 pandemic we have accelerated the trend of working online and this has extended to webinars replacing conferences and product launches. Please be in contact if you would like to explore the possibilities of reaching your target market using one of the available platforms. I would be keen to host it for you.

Welcome to my website

Specialising in MC work, awards presentations, product launches and guest speaking, all with video material on request. Derek's most popular presentation is about South African journalism over the past three decades: "You Have the Right to Know it All."

Playing and presenting prizes at golf days has become a specialty.
