Tim Stackpool is a highly sought after Master of Ceremonies who makes an event run smoothly retaining the attention of an audience with an easy, entertaining, sophisticated style.
A good MC, he says, is someone who can stick to a running sheet and able to hold things together by ad-libbing if an unforeseen distraction or interruption arises.
Having been on centre stage at events throughout Australia, Tim also has a number of major international events to his credit. He has been engaged to host and anchor special events in New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Holland, UK, Canada and the US.
Notable Australian events he has hosted include the Footsteps Eco Festival, The Sustainable Energy Forum, The Sustainable Transport Forum, Earthbeat World Music Festival, Jazz In The Park, Sail Sydney and the popular Glebe Street Fair visited by more than 100,000 people.
Tim comes from a media background having once reported for CBS in New York, CBC Canada, Real Radio in the UK and RTE Ireland. He is a former Chief Australian Correspondent for the Canadian Economic Press and remains a longtime contributor to Australian Executive PA Magazine and AV, the magazine for the audio-visual professional.
He has also facilitated numerous public consultation meetings regarding the controversial White Bay Passenger Terminal development in Sydney and moderated industry Q&A sessions following Australian Film Institute screenings.
In large arenas, he is a proven stadium announcer, having provided services to various sporting federations and leagues both in Australia and abroad.
Tim is based in Sydney.

"The fact that you worked with a script you only received on the day and were expected to largely fly by the seat of your pants with celebrity players walking to centre-wicket and keep the crowd amused all at once is testimony to your confidence, ability and intelligence. It was a pleasure working with someone so competent."Event Manager, Victor Trumper Day
