To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing this letter on behalf of Mr. Billy Mitchell. Timberline Software recently held our annual sales conference in Vancouver, BC at the Westin Bayshore Hotel. The agenda for the conference included an awards banquet dinner. We hired Mr. Mitchell to be our Master of Ceremonies for the evening.
Our goal for the evening was to have the awards presentation be both fun and meaningful for the award recipients, presenters and audience. We had the room decorated with an ‘Oscar’ theme, which gave it an elegant feel. We presented over 60 awards, photographed each recipient, and it ran smoothly and efficiently.
In preparation for the event, I met with Mr. Mitchell several times by phone, and once in person to review the agenda in detail. The primary purpose of the meeting was to give him background information on our company and each recipient and presenter. He in turn, did a wonderful job of educating himself on our particular business, and put together an opening ‘presentation’ which had the entire audience rolling in the aisles.
He got unanimous rave reviews from everyone connected with the evening. He was “hilarious”. He was on-point. He was efficient. He kept the ceremony moving along without anyone feeling rushed. He was funny when it was appropriate, and thoughtful when needed.
If your company is considering an awards presentation, or any other group function that could benefit from having a professional Master of Ceremonies, Billy is your answer. He was well prepared. He was hilarious. It was well worth the money.
Vice President, Sales
Billy did a great show and I had lots of positive feedback. He arrived early to check out PA system and his show was CLEAN which was appreciated by the Elder Cow gang.
Hope all is well with your life!!

You did an outstanding job.
A number of members have requested your contact information for their own corporate events.
Thanks for all you did.
VP & CFO
Thank you so much for making our event a complete success!
I have had so many great comments on the game and you, as host. Many said it was the best office lunch they've ever
participated in. Particularly, people said you did a terrific job of ad-libbing with jokes when I was called out to meet the Food Bank person.
I'm going to send a note to everyone in the office today with your website and email address, should anyone want to contact you in future.
Thanks for submitting your invoice, and thanks again for contributing to the success of our little party.
Thanks again for a great show. The first thing I asked Brent yesterday AM
was if he had "ducked the fog" yet this morning.
Cardinal Concrete Ltd.

We are anxiously looking forward to next year already. Hope you can help us

Hi Billy! Great job. You definitely fooled a bunch of people . . . and they're still talking about it! Since there's really only one opportunity to fake people out like that, I really appreciate how well you performed.
I've passed your message along to Richard & John. Thanks again and let me know if you ever need a reference! Take care.

Before closing my file on the Consular Spring Ball, I wanted to thank you very much for your performance at the Ball.
The guests really enjoyed your presentation – it was certainly a highlight of the evening. And, you met the challenge, yet again, of performing with restrictions as to subject matter.
Billy, this was the third function which I have organized in which you have appeared. Whether you created a specific presentation such as the Professor Energy for the Vancouver Board of Trade’s Governors’ Banquet, or the Professor of Media Convergence for the Jack Webster Awards or performed your existing work at the Consular Ball, all have been brilliantly done and extremely well received.
Many thanks for sharing your humour at these events. Look forward to having you perform at a future event!
You were excellent! Your various performances were the key to making the whole thing work as well as it did. Starting with your very funny skit at the "Godfather's" dinner, followed by a great hosting job at the high school sock hop, then the "Good Morning Vietnam" role, and finishing with your outstanding performance as the host Phil Tyme at the Awards Ceremony, you never let us down.
My sincerest thanks, and I hope we get to work with you again.
