I am a professional experienced presenter, and I love the thrill of working in television, radio and media. I learned the ropes working on live TV reading news and weather, then becoming advertorial host on Good Morning Australia with Bert Newton for many years, followed by host roles on 9AM and The Circle. I also did the Lotto draw for 22 years!
Upfront Presenters is a Melbourne based media services company I run with my husband. We offer a range of services including, TV presenting, hosting, voice overs, writing, MC ing, training and modelling.
I know how to engage an audience, and be natural, credible and passionate about what I’m presenting. Check out my show reel and see if I can help you sell your product, and most importantly, get your message across!
I regularly MC events such as Network lunches, community events and charity fundraisers. I like to think credibility, sense of timing and humor as well as being warm, friendly and natural are qualities I can make work for your event.
Since 2008 I have worked as a facilitator for Sprukit conducting presentation skills training and coaching for corporate groups and individuals.
I’m a tutor with Nida Open Short courses Melbourne. I have Cert IV in Training and Assessment.
Marianne’s wealth of TV experience sets her apart from all the others. Her warmth and personal attitude on camera settles viewers to be comfortable with her presence from the moment she appears on-screen.
For me that means they will instantly trust her and buy from her. Clients always sing her praises as a professional getting the record done quickly and on-point each and every time.
That’s why she has been and continues to be a highly sought after presenter with my agency.
When Marianne was a non speaking model on 'Sale of the Century', I knew the time would come when she’d have plenty to say on television ... and it sure did.
She’s a great interviewer ... not pushy but interested, and can take control in most any situation.
Marianne communicates with intelligence and warmth ... oh, yes, she also happens to be extremely decorative. I love working with her.
Marianne has been our EMC for our Lunches which we hold twice a year for the last 3 years.
Marianne has made these events professional and ensures the event runs smoothly with her great attention to detail.
Her personality shines through and this has helped us raise large amounts of money for our charity Partner, “Dress for Success” Mornington Peninsula.
