About me

Hi! I'm Daz Martin! I'm a creative event producer who has been leading the development of live event projects for over 7 years. My experience has been broad across the full gambit of events. I have produced everything from Fashion Shows, Concerts and Live Performances in both festival and individual event settings - as well as VIP Galas, Awards, Conferences and Business Meetings. My particular skill is understanding the desired out-comes from each event - strategising to meet those outcomes and then designing an event that delivers successfully on these.
