Clarke Gayford


MC, Speaker, Adventurer & DJ

A highly sort after and experienced MC, DJ and Speaker, that is, when he’s in the country and not chasing fish around the Pacific for his new international award winning TV series ‘FISH OF THE DAY’ on National Geographic.

As the affidavits below suggest he is comfortable hosting everything from huge rowdy groups to small intimate conferences. Clarke works closely with event organisers to realise the tone and delivery required, getting the balance between humour, entertainment and flow right, while delivering key messages. A confident public speaker, Clarke is at ease with a crowd & coupled with his outgoing character, he’s a favourite host of events & programmes.

His professional approach means he is a regular repeat client. For example he has MCed the Sustainable Coastlines Auction Ball from 2010 to 2016, and both the Rhythm and Vines Music Festival, and Australian Bar Awards in Sydney, more than 6 times each and counting.

Clarke was just great. Easy to work with and the audience really enjoyed him. I too enjoyed working with him and believe he was the perfect MC for our event. The night was fantastic and all went to clockwork. Everyone is buzzing after the night. So Clarke is a very talented MC and I would recommend him to anyone running an awards programme.~Mike Manson
