In 2002, Wayne Shapiro founded Trivia Madness, and in that time he has presented and hosted more than 1,000 tailored quizzes. Every quiz that Wayne writes is tailored to suit the audience demographics of those attending. He has presented quizzes for school kids aged 6 all the way up to ages 80 and beyond. Every question is written with participation and enjoyment in mind. Getting everyone involved has always been the main aim of any quiz that is presented.
What makes Wayne stand out in the corporate quiz arena is that he is able to offer different types of quizzes. Clients can choose a standard, paper-based quiz, similar to what is performed in a ‘pub quiz’ environment. They can also choose from a wireless keypad, interactive quiz. In this format, each team receives a credit card sized keypad to answer timed questions from a screen with graphs, music, videos and pictures. It certainly has more of a WOW factor and has been performed successfully for clients such as:
As with all Trivia Madness quizzes, everything is tailor written to the audience demographics and all are designed for maximum engagement and fun. They can include relevant questions with regards to the company or industry. Some of the events where a corporate quiz work well are:
- End of Financial Year events
- Corporate dinners
- Conference icebreakers
- Social Club events
- Teambuilding events
- Management Retreats

The very first quiz that Trivia Madness ran in 2002 was a fundraiser for a junior cricket club. Since that time, over 120 fundraising quizzes have been written and presented.
A trivia quiz has long been a popular way for organisations to raise much needed funds. Whether it be a school, a sporting organisation or even a charity, the fun environment provides a great platform for fundraising.
And no one does it better than Trivia Madness.
Combining interesting and quirky questions with a vast array of fun games, Wayne is able to make sure your attendees are having so much fun, they can’t wait to do it again next year. On top of all this is Wayne’s ability to make sure the event runs to time, and is still able to include all aspects of what makes a fundraising trivia night so much fun.

“Wayne, thank you for making our Trivia Event so amazing! You really gave it the vibe we needed and the feedback has been nothing less than awesome!

Since 2002, Trivia Madness has presented weekly quizzes to over 40 pubs and clubs. With a number of venues running for over 10 years, pub trivia has proven to be a popular way of getting people into a pub/club on a quiet night. For a relatively low cost, hoteliers can entertain patrons as well as show off other parts of their establishment to people that might not normally frequent the venue.
The quizzes are run in an easy to understand formula with a number of rounds of questions, music, games and activities. The aim of the evening to provide entertainment with an emphasis on involvement and fun.
