The Master of Ceremonies (generally known as Emcee or in short MC) is the “conductor” of an event or meeting. The primary responsibility of the Master of Ceremonies is to serve as a genial host. An ideal MC is a person who has poise, presence and who can command the attention of an audience.Screen Shot 2015-07-13 at 1.24.53 AM

The Master of Ceremonies is responsible for ensuring that the program/event runs smoothly, runs on time and that all the important people at the event are introduced in a complimentary, professional manner. Being a successful Master of Ceremonies requires preparation, a friendly manner and the ability to adjust or to ad-lib as necessary to ensure a successful event.

Finding the right people to put on stage as the host of your event is really, really important. You’ve got to have the right personalities and presence on stage as you continue to thread the theme or series through the night. It is often said that the MC can make or break your event on the day itself.

Being the MC can be a wonderful responsibility, both for the individual and for their company. In fact every company would really need someone internal and can even train a few of their employees to do some of the smaller or easier emceeing jobs for their own events instead of outsourcing each time, especially for smaller scale or internal events. They can learn to handle internal events efficiently and thus may even save the company some additional expenses.

At the same time, this workshop will be a good learning ground for personal development and to enhance yours or your staff’s capabilities in this area. You may just discover the hidden talents in you and/or the gem that you are to your organisation!

Those who are keen to enhance their credentials and proceed in this career can apply for the Certification programme as Certified Master of Ceremonies, certified by IPMA, UK.
