MC Mark Jones is the perfect host for awards, sportsmen’s dinners and black tie events. He is entertaining, professional and experienced. Mark works across the UK and worldwide and has again been voted ‘Best Event MC / Awards Host, UK & worldwide’ (that’s four years in a row!)
He has hosted countless awards and events worldwide, including Sky Sports’ Masters Football. Here he hosted all their televised arena tournaments in the UK. In addition he covered tournaments in Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Brunei and Macau, China, presenting the live TV interviews too. He’s been regular host of the British Sri Lankan Association awards for almost a decade. Mark also hosts Manchester United’s Player-of-the-Year awards, and has done every year since 2002.
He is also one of the UK’s most experienced (and award-winning) radio presenters. Best known for his time at Liverpool’s Radio City, where he was one of their top names for many years during their heyday. He spread his experienced wings (and tonsils) to America, featuring on radio stations WEFT and Q-96 in Champaign, Illinois, where he also hosted the American Heart Association’s black-tie fundraising gala dinners in 2010 and 2011. It was here he helped to raise record-breaking amounts in the auctions.
Not just limiting his talents to radio and hosting live events, Mark has also written several books. He has also appeared in TV’s ‘Cold Feet’, ‘The Forsyte Saga’ and ‘Clocking Off’
Mark is an extremely popular corporate host and MC and feedback includes:
We owe you a massive thank you – your professionalism and your approach to this challenging evening was incredibly appreciated and you were fabulous on the night. Our clients thought you were fantastic and it takes a lot to get any feedback from them! I really wanted to send a personal thank you as we could not have asked for a better man for the job.” L.W., Event Organiser at The Guildhall, London.
“Mark Jones was an absolute asset for our event the 2020 Triple H Awards, dedicated to the Hotel Hospitality Sector. A consummate professional: Mark was humorous and inoffensive to our multi-cultural guests [at the Birmingham Metropole Hotel]. He carried out his duties whilst keeping our delegates engaged. As Events Organisers, we will definitely be calling on the services of Mark in the very near future…” Mark Gleed, Director, MEG Events Ltd., Reading., Berks.
“…a big thank you for last night’s performance; I think you judged the audience just right as always, and really made the evening special for everyone. Our sponsors loved it (and that’s the main thing…!)” Karen Brindley, Managing Director, Krowne Communications GmbH, Berlin, Germany.
“I thought Mark Jones was majestic in his handling and compèring the event. He kept everything moving in a most professional and competent manner; I can think of few other hosts who could have handled the event in such a professional way and with the provision of such good sound and lighting (which Mark also supplied). Many other super-expensive high-profile presenters would have stumbled over some of the Sri-Lankan pronunciations and protocols required. Mark did not.”
“… Thank you for making the BRISLA awards such a success again!” Zimar Sivardeen, President & Chairman, British Sri Lankan Association.
“A very big thank you from us for all for your hard work at our event. You handled your duties beautifully -and kept to the script– ha ha! It was an absolute pleasure working with you… a very enjoyable evening. We will most definitely keep in contact and think of you for future events.” Maria Valentine, Managing Director, Yellow Fish, Brighton [Mark hosted the Highways Electrical Association awards at Celtic Manor].
“Thank you for doing a great job, the awards were a huge success. How you managed to keep us on time still amazes us! See you next year! #TopMC” Mark Duggan, Managing Director, The Pallet Network, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands.
“They were a difficult crowd to please, you did an exceptional job! Well done!” HRH Sophie, Countess of Wessex, London [Mark hosted the official opening of Aquavale Leisure Complex, Aylesbury, Bucks.]
“I thought Saturday went brilliantly well. Thanks for your help – I felt that you brought it all together extremely well. The client was very pleased (which is always a good thing!) Of course I will think of you when we need another professional MC…” Lisa Drury, Waterside Events, Leeds.
