Without any stresses he seamlessly MC’d the event, interviewed cancer researchers, participated in video footage and put his magical touch on the day that was enjoyed by 180 guests.

A one of a kind man, who we greatly appreciate. Thank you Graeme! Smiles all round.

Graeme It has been a month and accolades are still coming in.

I want to thank you for not only the sensational job you did on the night of the Commodores Dinner but also the work that you did prior to the dinner.  To try to communicate with eight past Commodores to gain some insight and their contribution to the Cruising Yacht Club of SA’s success was no mean feat!

The night was a huge success and was run with such professionalism, kindness and humour.  Your respectful interviews of each of these past Commodores or their representative drew out some amazing and humorous stories.

The night would not have been such a success without your input.

We will most certainly use your services again in the future.

Kind regards

‘Life. Be in it’ was appointed to manage the Opening and Closing Ceremonies  of the Special Olympics National Games, held at the Adelaide Dome.

It was a special event and the program was designed to give athletes with an  intellectual disability the “time of their lives” – and it did.

However, this would not have been possible without the enthusiastic support of the compere – Graeme Goodings.

His understanding and well spoken presentation throughout the show was one of the reasons the Opening Ceremony was declared the best ever!

It was obvious to all present that Graeme has a consummate talent in public speaking and presentations. Indeed he was late leaving because of the enthusiastic reaction from those attending. They “headed him off at the pass”.

Graeme handled the situation with great aplomb – as one would expect from such an experienced media personality.
