“Multi Talented, phenomenal voice, intelligent, eye for details, great people skills and all round great guy are just some of the ways I would describe Cyrus Rogers. I worked with Cyrus for about 10 years when I hosted a few different garden slots on the Home Channel with Cyrus as producer. More recently we have used his media company to produce our television commercials as well as a series of short infomercials. Cyrus always interpreted our brief accurately and produced imaginative and beautifully filmed products. In addition his keynote address at our National Sales And Marketing conference was absolutely relevant to the audience and delivered with great professionalism. This multi talented media professional has an unbelievable knowledge of a broad range of sport.
I would highly recommend Cyrus for any media project with full confidence that you would deliver above your expectations.”
