Graeme Bowman was put on this planet for two reasons:
- To stop people falling asleep during conferences and events
- To inspire people to think more creatively.
How does Graeme Bowman stop people falling asleep?
As a Corporate Comedian, Master of Ceremonies and Hoax Speaker, Graeme has many years of experience at turning ho-hum into ha-ha at conferences, events, launches and awards presentations. An audience that is laughing is not sleeping:
- At an awards evening or gala dinner, nothing relaxes an audience like a good laugh.
- Humour can help to launch a new product in a way that is quirky and memorable.
- Laughter gives conference audiences a mental breather, when it is interspersed throughout the business sessions.
- Humour can be used to address serious issues through interactive Devils Advocate Characters.
How does Graeme Bowman inspire people to think more creatively?
As a Lateral Thinking Trainer, accredited by the De Bono Institute, Graeme offers an entertaining keynote address that will motivate your people to challenge their current thinking style, then give them valuable tips on how to think more creatively, in order to kick-start the process of innovation. This keynote, How to Suck Great Ideas Out of Your Head, can also extend into a workshop.
Can Graeme mix and match these types of presentations?
Graeme’s great advantage over other speakers, comedians and MCs lies in the versatility he brings to each event.
For example, at a 2-3 day conference, he may appear at the welcome dinner as a hoax speaker, then next morning deliver his creativity keynote, and also MC the entire conference, sprinkling impressions, humorous songs and comic routines throughout.
Graeme can also combine his hoax and MC talents, to create a Hoax MC character very popular at awards presentations. Or he can combine a hoax speech with a genuine creativity keynote a truly unique conference presentation called Uncork Your Creative Genie.
Because so much can be achieved through just the one person, Graeme is a cost-effective live presentation solution, particularly for lengthy conferences, roadshows and incentive trips. One air fare, one hotel room – get the picture?
Based in Melbourne, Graeme’s work often takes him interstate, and he has also appeared overseas at conferences in New Zealand, Bali, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, China and the USA.

John Flynn Private Hospital
“Thank you for doing such a superb job of Bruce Attenborough, long lost brother of David, at our Management Summit. I am amazed with how you were able to captivate our audience, who, in the past, have been quite a challenging bunch to entertain or impress.”
“The conference opening which featured Graeme’s impersonation of naturalist Bruce Attenborough and members of the ALSA committee, tracing the evolution of the liquor store owner from the Jurassic Age to the present and into the future, was indeed memorable. His hoax speech had the audience totally engrossed for at least 20 minutes before things started to fall apart in the funniest possible way. Of equal importance Graeme’s skills as a professional MC were invaluable.”
