Andrew Reid has worked with the IRONMAN (Asia-Pacific / Oceania) team for many years now and continues to produce an outstanding level of work. IRONMAN engaged Andrew due to his reputable energy, passion and dedication across the industry of sport, health and wellbeing in a vital communications role.

Andrew is adaptable across a diverse range of environments and events encouraging inclusiveness regardless of age or ability. Andrew is influential in progressing growth and progression in sport and possesses a positive nature which is transferrable to all he meets.

“I’ve contracted Reidy as an announcer at a number of the Fairfax Events portfolio of sporting events and he is always a pleasure to work with. He is punctual, professional, funny and is a guy that event participants feel comfortable interacting with. There have also been a number of instances where Reidy has put down the microphone, got his hands dirty and helped us bump in/out our events, for this I’m incredibly thankful.”
— Rob Stalling - Events manager, Fairfax Events
“Andrew Reid worked with Totem on several YouTube-centric brand campaigns. Reliable and creative, Andrew was always ready to adapt his talents to fit the project. The enthusiasm and comedic-timing he brought to the Meat and Livestock Australia campaign was key in contributing towards the project’s success. Andrew has been a pleasure to work with, and we couldn’t recommend him any more as talent and as an influencer on video, audio or photographic mediums.”
— Omar Samad - TOTEM, YouTube Consultancy and Network
“Andrew “Reidy” Reid is an ambassador for our organisation, the Children’s Tumour Foundation and we sincerely feel very honoured to have him representing our charity.
We go through a very strict process when appointing ambassadors to make sure that who we approach have all of the right credentials, reputation and positive approach and outlook and so when we approached Andrew we did so knowing he would be a great fit for us.
However what we have got back from him has far surpassed our expectations. He has gone out of his way to help us deliver events that have brought in record breaking dollars, he always comes up with unique and creative ways to promote what we do and always gives us his opinion which we value and consider strongly when looking at our options. He immerses himself completely in what we do, even though his schedule is such that it offers limited additional time and he engages with his social media following to reinforce what he is doing and why.
We very much hope to continue having Andrew as an ambassador for the Children’s Tumour Foundation for many years to come.”
— Richard Hughes - CEO of The Childrens Tumour Foundation of Australia
“For a number of years we have had the pleasure of having Andy MC at our mass participation races including the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival.
His natural enthusiasm, combined with professionalism, and his ability to engage with participants of all ages and abilities makes him the perfect fit for our events”
— Nicola Bentley - Pont3, Client Services and Sponsorship Director
“Andy or as he is more affectionately known “Reidy” has been working as an MC, commentator and event director as a contractor with my company 100% Events over the past 6 years.
Our company produces mass participation sporting events through to high level corporate launches and team building events.
I have seen Andy develop his skills over this time and we are always looking to place him at our events when his schedule allows for it.
He is instantly recognizable, brings a high level of event awareness to broad audience and is always on the front foot when it comes to engaging our clients, customers and event participants.
He works with us as part of our team and not for us and becomes an integral part of our overall event delivery.
We have worked with Andy both here across our 17 Australian events and Internationally where he has shown his agility to adapt to any situation that may present at an event or function.
I have been particularly impressed with the work that Andy puts in to the backgrounding at our events where preparation in the lead up makes all the difference to “on the day delivery”
Reidy’s delivery and work ethic and effort is totally professional and approachable. His style resonates with any audience.
He obviously comes with my highest recommendation.”
— Mark Stewart - CEO of 100% Events
