John Quinn


Raised and educated in Ireland, Johnny has sat through more bad presentations than he’d care to remember. It was during one of these boring business meetings that Johnny decided on a career to banish “Death-by-PowerPoint.”


Raised and Educated in Ireland, John Quinn arrived in the United Arab Emirates in 1996 determined to make the difference between presentations that fall flat, and that ‘seal the deal’. After several years with Gearhouse & Philips Middle East he started Satellite in Dubai Media City in 2001 and then expanded the operation to Dubai Silicon Oasis in 2010.

In 2015, John added service to his worldwide portfolio and expanded his business to cover Australia and NZ. See for AudienceAlive NZ.

Since 2001, John has provided custom presentation services for over 500 local and international clients resulting in over 25000 slides and too many bullet points to count! John’s creativity and professional design experience will result in an effective presentation with impact.

Jeremy Foster, Marketing Manager | Ericsson
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with John Quinn and Satellite over the years. He brings such a fresh perspective to something so fundamental like engaging people with each other. Particularly in the context of landing major presentations when you know he really is worth every penny. I consider Ericsson materially better off for having the opportunity to work with John and I’d not hesitate in hiring John or recommending him to anyone looking for his expertise and easy going style.

Nick Nadal, Director | Hawkamah
My organization hired John and his company to assist us in engaging our audience during our annual conference. I found John to be professional and very personable and always has a ‘can-do’ attitude over behind-the-scenes challenges faced when orchestrating major conferences. You can feel that he’s got the best interest of his clients in mind, and the fact that we’re repeat customers show that we’ve experienced good value with John. Thanks, John!

Just a quick note to say thanks a million. Your personal delivery is truly inspirational. The fact that I didn’t look once at my phone is testament to your ability to keep your audience in the palm of your hand.
