Welcome!

I’m Nicky Marr, an experienced event host, broadcaster and columnist based in the North of Scotland.

Event host, presenter, MC?

If you’re looking for a confident and inspiring presenter/MC for your conference, awards ceremony, product launch, charity or festival event, you’ve come to the right place. Whether your ideas are fully formed or we’re starting with a blank sheet of paper, your event will be safe in my hands.

Broadcasting

Maybe you’re looking for an engaging and warm TV/radio anchor, or a sparky, insightful contributor? Then I can help. I have 16 years’ experience behind the microphone, both in commercial radio and with the BBC. From food to fitness, the arts and the online world, there’s not much that I don’t have an opinion about.

Writing

Perhaps you’re in need of a writer to add flair, humour and flow to your company brochures? Or someone to turn around a press release or create copy for publicity purposes? I’m pretty good at sussing out your style and getting to the point.
My popular weekly columns are syndicated across Scottish Provincial Press titles throughout the north of Scotland – to read the latest, just click on the links below.
If you pick up a copy of Connect, the magazine for customers of Highlands and Islands Airports, you’ll see that it’s mine too.

Voiceover

My warm Northern Scottish voice will add credibility to your Corporate DVD, training videos, online courses or ad campaigns. As the ‘voice’ of Business Gateway in Scotland I am heard all over the country, and I pop up in theatres, on telephone systems and in visitor centre films all over the place!

Media Training/Presentation Skills Training

People do business with people. The key to becoming more engaging in business is to brush up on your communication and presentation skills. Whether you are the CEO of a member organisation and need to quickly explain the benefits of membership, a tour operator who needs your staff to be consistently customer focussed, or your job relies on you being an effective communicator to staff and stakeholders, I can help you achieve exceptional results.

How would your company be reflected in the media if the worst happened? Media training is vital to help you understand what to say and how to say it on camera or into a microphone. I can help you work out key messages, give insider tips on journalists’ techniques, and let you practice that interview. And it’s and all completely bespoke and confidential.

What makes a good news story, and how can you maximise its impact? If you’d like a better understanding of how to get the best coverage for your business in local media , I’d be happy to help.

And if public speaking is something you’d rather avoid, I’ll help you overcome the fear. Together we can work on polishing up your presentation skills!

Thank you
