Talented MC’s, celebrity speakers and entertainers can orchestrate a night for your audience to remember. However, a charismatic live entertainer who is equally comfortable on stage can be hard to find.

That’s why it is important to partner with an NZ talent agency that understands the space and can successfully provide you with the results you deserve.

Established in 2002, Johnson & Laird knows the influencer industry, and we have earned an outstanding reputation within it. We are specialists in top-tier talent. Backed by a professional team of talent agents, we take our connections and customers’ success seriously.

Holding exclusive relationships with over 60 talented, well-known and respected masters of ceremonies and entertainers, we are sought out for our breadth of service and wide appeal that ensures all audiences are entertained.
