About Justin Karcher
Justin has lived and worked in Australia, PNG, Japan, UK, Canada, and the USA bringing over 20 years experience to The K Faktor in the Event Management, Talent Bureau and Marketing fields.
His involvement in charity work, sporting clubs both on committee and as a player, and as a father of three daughters (16 , 3 and 1!) match his abundance of energy and commitment to service.
With senior level involvement in the sports AFL, NRL and Cricket coupled with his experience working and living in 5 countries, Justin brings to the stage a wealth of knowledge in regards to sports administration, fundraising and marketing.
Having acted as Emcee, Comedian, Guest Speaker and Auctioneer at over 500 functions across 7 countries, Justin is the perfect adapter to any situation.
Justin is the Birth of Origin trademark owner with Arthur Beetson and Tommy Raudonikis, and the Founder and Principal of The K Faktor Speakers Bureau.
With more than 500 speaking engagements under his belt, Justin is a highly professional, yet easy going MC/Auctioneer/Comic. His high energy performances across Australia, the UK, Asia, the USA and PNG have earned him countless return bookings. Of note, Justin is seven-time host of the famed AFL Grand Final show in Bangkok, Thailand, a sell-out event which attracts in excess of five hundred people every year!
His versatile skill set as performer and businessman ensures he adapts well to any event. Justin not only facilitates and entertains an audience, he extracts maximum bids in the fundraising auctions. As well as these talents, he has walked Kokoda twice, (once with Ron Barassi for his 70th birthday…not much of a party!) and been held up 3 times at gun point in PNG. It’s all added to his life experience and ability to read an audience (even if he can’t identify a gunman!)
