What do clients say?

“Over New Zealand’s year-long hosting of APEC 2021, we were fortunate to have Jehan facilitate all our media conferences and briefings. These were hybrid virtual and in-person events taking place at all hours of the day and night. Jehan’s deft handling of any technical issues made every event seamless in the eyes of the world’s media. He is the consummate presenter and always ensured smooth interchanges between media, Ministers and the Prime Minister, no matter what was happening around him. I cannot recommend him highly enough.” — Sidah Russell, Ministry of Foreign Affairs

“We highly recommend Jehan as an MC and facilitator. We engaged Jehan to facilitate the Government’s Just Transition Summit in Taranaki. This was a pivotal event, requiring a facilitator that could respectfully manage the differing views of our five key stakeholder groups – Government, business, workers, iwi and community. Jehan did this masterfully. There are not many MCs and facilitators that can be this agile and accommodating, while presenting a professional and seamless face to the audience. We are working with Jehan on further events.” — Bronwyn Millar, Acumen Republic (for MBIE)

“I have worked with Jehan on three annual national conferences for principals. Jehan is the consummate professional. He is generous with his time and goes to great lengths to understand what we want from him, so that he can add value to our event. Jehan is thoughtful, considered, and intelligent in his approach, thorough in his research, and never fails to deliver. I consider Jehan to be more than just an MC – he has been an active advisor and valuable asset in the planning of our events.” — Jill Corkin, NZ Principals’ Federation

Jehan_4“Jehan was superb. We’re delighted with the vibe and verve he brought to the EPICNZ Conference as our MC. It was a dynamic role, given he wasn’t just the MC but also the facilitator and moderator of panel sessions – and delivered that role with great style and effectiveness. Importantly, this included a snappy pace and he really supported the speakers to shine.” — Craig Nicholson, Department of Internal Affairs

“Jehan did a great job and the feedback on the day was very positive. Jehan’s knowledge of our sector was invaluable, and allowed him to connect with the conference attendees. He really came into his own when hosting our two panel discussions. We have already booked Jehan for our team’s next event!” — Nick Arnott, Auckland Tourism, Events & Economic Development (ATEED)

“Jehan was a superb MC for the day. I appreciated his professionalism and willingness to work with our plans, yet make useful suggestions for getting the best out of the day for our participants. He went above and beyond to get a really good overview of what we wanted to achieve. I have had nothing but positive feedback from a number of participants, who commented particularly positively about Jehan’s ability to ask informed questions of speakers and maximise the opportunity for our teachers to hear key messages.” — Kaylene Macnee, Wellington Regional Primary Principals Association
