MASTER OF CEREMONIES & PERSONAL APPEARANCES

As an MC Coxy could be described as a jack of all trades.

Coxy’s demographic is 5 –> 85 – so all age groups know and relate to him. Surprise personal appearances work extremely well as everyone loves to meet Coxy.

AFTER DINNER SPEAKER

Coxy’s life in the entertainment industry has been long and varied. As a raconteur he is one of the best. His talks cover TV, radio, music, advertising, travel and life in general. He is a genial speaker who works well with mixed audiences, but can be “one of the boys”.
