“We recently had the pleasure of having Joe Avati MC both of Macquarie’s Melbourne and Sydney’s Sales events. As the nights were information heavy and quite serious we thought having a comedian break up proceedings would be ideal. Joe was fantastic and fit the brief perfectly. He brought a sense of light to the evening, while his comical wit and relevant gags kept the audience laughing. ”
