Kat delivers the perfect balance of preparation, performance, spontaneity and spunkiness when she steps up to the mic MC. And while she's on stage making sure the crowd is comfortable and engaged, she's just as keen to step off the stage and let the main stars and speakers shine for their event. When stuff happens on and off stage, she rolls with it like a seasoned pro - respecting the organisers brief if it calls for sticking to the script or taking cues from the audience and leading with masterful the crowd dynamics. As an MC Kat brings great poise, preparation and a voice of reassurance and welcome to any event.
Recently I attended Australia’s only dedicated copywriting conference, CopyCon, held in Sydney in May 2018. This fab event was made even more memorable thanks to the exquisitely talented emcee, Kat Rodrigues. Engaging, witty, warm and wonderfully at ease with her on stage duties, Kat simply shone in this role. She would be an outstanding asset to anyone looking for an amazing all-round emcee.
I had the pleasure of attending a conference where Kat was the MC. I hesitate to say conference because it brings to mind boring and stuffy talks. This conference was energetic and inspiring from start to finish. Kat set the tone for the day, kept everything flowing beautifully and dealt with the inevitable technical glitches gracefully with a smile on her face. She is a polished speaker with a natural sense of humour. Kat helped make the conference a huge success!
Kat did an amazing job as emcee for CopyCon 2017 and surpassed expectations with her repeat performance at CopyCon 2018. She kept the level of energy in the room buzzing, and when the (inevitable) technical hitches happened, her professionalism and ability to hold a room in rapt attention as she entertained us was second to none. Bright, funny, smart and entertaining - I would highly recommend her for any emcee role.
Kat’s MC-ing of CopyCon 2018 was a highlight of the event. Her stage presence is really relatable, sincere and engaging. She’s natural, funny and a true professional. She effortlessly got the crowd fired up for each speaker (without being OTT), kept proceedings on track and facilitated panel sessions. As a speaker herself, Kat’s totally on your level – no ego-driven barriers between presenter and audience. If you want a warm, genuine, engaging MC for your event, I thoroughly recommend Kat!
Wow! Kat is nothing short of amazing! Being a wedding photographer, it was always important that my website represent me as a person but I never felt like I had the right words to express myself. And that's where Kat came in, I feel like she jumped into my mind and put my thoughts onto paper or in my website if you like! My website is no longer a dysfunctional mess!
The minute I got on the phone with Kat I knew I would be in good hands. I instantly felt comfortable talking to her, more like we were old friends rather than me being a potential client. At every step of the process she has gone out of her way to deliver above and beyond, and I couldn't be happier with the final result. My website now has shiny new copy that sells my work, is SEO friendly and the client enquiries are rolling in!
Love working with Kat. She was referred to us by a good friend who also loved her work. Such an easy process and so thorough when getting to know the brand. She wrote wonderful product descriptions and was super versatile when discussing options. We will absolutely continue our work with her in the future!
