  • MANAWATU CONTACT CENTRE AWARDS - MC - 31 OCTOBER 2014 "Robbie Magasiva is one of the most down-to-earth celebrities weíve ever dealt with. He went above and beyond his contractual obligations to make our event a memorable one for our guests, and was engaging and charming throughout. Iím sure the internetís content has doubled from all the photographs that were taken and posted with him on the night! A definite crowd puller and pleaser!" Gee Mason, Association of Local Government Information Management (ALGIM)
  • APPRENTICE OF THE YEAR AWARDS - MC - AUGUST 2014 "Robbie was a last minute alteration to our event when our original MC went sick. He had a few hours to learn a comprehensive script which he performed with humour and enthusiasm. He interacted well with the audience, adapting to what was a difficult audience of varying ages. His prompt acceptance of the booking made what could have been a stressful situation for us much easier." Ali Glover, Registered Master Builders Association of NZ Inc.
