  • "Tim Nethercote has been the MC of Meritum's last 2 off-shore conferences in Shanghai and Las Vegas and we have engaged his services again for South African conference in 2009. Tim prepares thoroughly and keeps things moving and schedule. Tim's manner is friendly and humorous. His introductions of speakers are concise and hit on the key attributes which the speaker brings to the conference. Because of his understanding of the financial services industry (Tim is also our legal adviser), Tim is able to ask insightful and appropriate questions at the conclusion of the presentation (particularly the business presentation) without taking the focus away from the presenter. 

    A highlight of our most recent conference was an interview conducted by Tim with Mr Joe Esposito, Elvis Presley's Road Manager for over 17 years. The interview lasted approximately one hour with Tim and Joe sitting on the stage having a chat. The time flew with Tim asking questions about matters which everyone wanted to know. I commented at the conference farewell that Tim had a career in the media if he ever decided to leave legal practice.

    Tim obviously enjoys the MC role and the fact that Meritum has engaged his services again in 2009 speaks for itself. I have no hesitation in recommending Tim as an MC at any conference." - Brian Dau (CEO Meritum Financial Group)

  • In 2006, the IMA utilised Tim Nethercote as MC of its three day National Conference in Melbourne. "Compliance", the theme for the conference potentially was a heavy and difficult agenda. To the delight of delegates and organisers Tim Nethercote was outstanding in fulfilling his role and ensuring delegates were able to take away useful knowledge from the event. Descriptions of "professional, knowledgeable, informative, punctual and diplomatic" are all relevant observations but in many respects understate Tim's performance. Importantly, Tim did not overshadow the various speakers but instead was able to complement the material they delivered, by emphasising the relevant points within the context of the delegates' industry. As an MC, Tim Nethercote truly value adds." - Alan Harries (Executive Director Institute of Mercantile Agents)

  • More recently, Tim was called in again to MC this year's IMA 2010 3-day conference.  "It was a great pleasure to meet you at the conference and you are definitely a fantastic MC.  You're such a wonderful speaker, entertaining and possess a wealth of knowledge." - Mattison Staples (Business Manager AAC Process Servers and Investigations)

  • "I was fortunate to speak at a conference where Tim was the MC and his professionalism in this role was without question.  He was engaged, kept the energy in the room at a high level and added value to the participants through his insights.  I recommend Tim to any organisation seeking a professional MC with an intimate understanding of financial services." Sue-Anne Charlton (Regional Manager at BT Financial Group (BankSA) )
