Nigel has been wooing and woo-hooing corporate audiences now for over ten years. He is famous for his interactive comedy and energetic style as an MC, presenter or ‘on-the-couch’ interviewer.

He has appeared on TV numerous times including ‘Home and Away’ where it took them over 7 years to invite him back.
