How James Cunningham Can Turn a Great Event into Something Spectacular!

How James Cunningham Can Turn a Great Event into Something Spectacular!

James Cunningham is the best of the best! When we asked him to host Speakers Spotlight’s Showcase 2024, we knew he’d knock it out of the park — and he still exceeded our expectations.

James is one of the most skilled corporate emcees and comedians in the world. There’s a reason why clients book him again and again, year after year. You never know what you’re going to get (except for a corporate-friendly performance) because he completely customizes his material for every event, tailoring it to each unique audience and organization.

“James was an incredibly engaging emcee.”

How a Skilled Emcee Can Elevate an Event

It’s been fours years since Speakers Spotlight hosted its last Showcase event — Showcase 2020 took place exactly one week before the world shut down. James took this as an opportunity to poke fun at what the events industry had to deal with over the last four years, such as 100+ person Zoom calls, and even used the art of interpretive dance to very accurately capture the highs and lows.

James peppered comedy in between each of the six speakers’ presentations, including a trivia contest that put his incredible crowd work on display. He tailored his questions to his audience of meeting and event planners, even handing out cash prizes to their delight. But don’t take just take our word for it! Watch him in action in the video below.

Since joining Speakers Spotlight, James has hosted and performed at over 750 events across the country and around the world. Past corporate clients include Loblaw Companies, Pepsi, Frito-Lay, Starbucks, KRAFT, Canadian Tire, McDonald’s, STAPLES, Nestle Purina, Walmart, Bombardier, BMO, Scotiabank, Proctor & Gamble, Enercare, Ingram Micro, and Grant Thornton, to name a few.

James has also hosted events featuring former President Bill Clinton, Sir Richard Branson, Martha Stewart, Hilary Swank, Quincy Jones, Martin Sheen, Suze Orman, Andre Agassi, Ben Stein, Suzanne Somers, Michael Phelps, Tony Robbins and Barbara Walters.
