Your MC:

Your event success is critical, time, cost and reputation are all impacted by the success (or otherwise) of your event. That’s why it is so important to have a professional MC.

Make sure your MC is NOT:

✘ your mate who really won’t invest the time and effort to prepare, and is most likely going to steal the limelight and waste time between speakers and event segments.

✘ your most senior person in your organisation unless they are skilled at presenting and being an MC. Let them enjoy the event and have your professional MC acknowledge them within the event program.

✘ you! You already have way too much to do to ensure a successful event. Don’t make your job harder than it may already be; plus let your professional MC acknowledge you through the event program.

✘ booked at the last minute! The less time to prepare the harder it is to ensure a smooth running event. (Yes, a professional MC can think on their feet and bring all the elements together, but it’s not the best way to ensure a successful event.)

 

Make sure your MC IS:

✓ a professional Master of Ceremonies with excellent skills in presenting, facilitating and managing an audience.

✓ prepared to follow your protocol and can advise you, where necessary, to develop an effective error-free event run sheet.

✓ booked early! Your professional MC is part of your team, the earlier you bring your MC in the more helpful they will be.
