Terry Williams is a leading New Zealand comedy writer and humourist. He's not crude. He's no clown. Terry Williams is a clever, business-savvy satirist & comedian.

He's gained skills as a comedian that he's found beneficial in the real world outside comedy. These include communication skills, rapport building, self-confidence and quick thinking. Now he's helping people in business learn from his serious comedy experiences without even having to get on stage. Terry speaks to corporate groups about what he has learnt as a comedian that can create value and change in the workplace. His presentations can both amuse you and provide you with invaluable tools for leaders, managers, salespeople at work and home.

His motivational presentations to business groups receive rave reviews. Or, if you want a comedian for entertainment, he does that too. He s performed in several New Zealand International Comedy Festivals.

The point of difference and value-add Terry offers is that he can both MC AND present, AND provide evening comedy entertainment. With that rare mix of an extensive business background as well as comedy 'chops', Terry can tweak his performance to suit almost any occasion, from hosting V8 hospitality beside a racetrack to introducing Cabinet Ministers at formal functions to facilitating networking amongst a collegial bunch of professionals inbetween drinks. Laugh as you learn how to amplify your influence. The true test of your influence is what happens when you're not around.

Terry's style is interactive, with the use of entertainment to keep the sessions flowing, hold your audience's concentration and improve their recall of key information.

As seen on TV1 s Good Morning  and TV3 s Sunrise , Terry Williams combines comedy with valuable business acumen to be a skilled and knowledgeable MC, speaker or facilitator.

"The feedback I have received from our sponsors and media contacts re your performance last night has been 100% positive. I am confident your skills and most importantly "culture fit" will only but complement our desire to provide the most professional hospitality product within the series this season."
Glenn Middleton, Manager Operations - Orix

"Thank you, Terry. You are an ingenious performer who invigorated our audience with your rapid-fire repartee and observational wit. A skilled master of ceremonies, assured compere, and polished stand-up left our delegates screaming for more! Sincere thanks, for your commitment to our 2008 Asia Pacific Venue Industry Congress."
Debi Chalmers, Asia-Pacific Venue Management Association

"Terry presented imperative information for business leaders on how to influence the people around them in a very humorous manner. He highlighted the importance of how your influence as a leader is measured more on how your teams act while you are absent as opposed to how they act while you are there. 83% of attendees (senior finance managers) rated Terry as excellent." - Megan Alexander, General Manager, Robert Half International

"Terry is an engaging presenter and works well in small/large group situations. In my case we were wanting to use a comedy bent  to not only better engage with our customers, but also find innovative ways to consider issues, find solutions and of course connect  people. Terry did a brilliant job for us in this capacity and is highly recommended."
Jason Roberts, Marketing Manager, Zeacom

"A marvellous job... very professional, respectful yet still hilariously funny... It was the perfect end to a successful conference."
Roseta Jacobs, Auckland University Centre For Professional Development

Terry s session as Keynote Speaker finished our conference on the high  that we were looking for. His very humorous session gave us skills to apply not only in our businesses but also in our personal lives. 
Brian Berry, Rothbury Financial Services

The best corporate entertainment I ve ever been to.
