Why Hire A Specialist MC?
Despite the opinions of some event organisers, the MC is one of the major reasons your event will succeed, fail, or just make people feel indifferent.
That’s because doing the job well involves more than just making announcements and doing introductions. The MC is the person who will be up front and in control, and leading the audience through the experience you have created.
The job of the MC can be described quite simply, although it’s not simple to do. In fact many MC’s have the wrong idea about this. Their job in a nutshell, is to make everyone else look good – you the event organiser, plus your performers and speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, and other stakeholders.
The skills your MC will need to do that are many and varied, but will include:
- Being diligent researchers
- Being organised
- Being observant
- Being thoughtful
- Being knowledgeable
- Being encouraging
- Being engaging
- Making others feel comfortable and at ease
- Being able to say the right the right thing at the right time whether it be funny, poignant, or practical
- Having a strong ‘audience awareness’
- Having good speaking skills and being easy to listen to
Your event is a journey on which the MC is the audience’s guide. They set the tone and energy levels. The audience looks to the MC to lift them, calm them, help them, inform them, and any number of other things.
The MC is also the ‘voice’ of the audience. They speak on their behalf and say the things that others are thinking or wish they could have said.
It’s not a responsibility to be taken lightly and getting a quality MC should be one of your primary considerations – not something you try to get out of as easily as possible. You should make getting a professional part of your budget.
If you’d like to talk about how to make your event the best possible experience it can be, please feel welcome to get in touch.
I’d love to hear from you.
What Other Event Organisers Have Said
Thank you so much for the excellent compering job you did for us for our High Tea.
Our profit for the day exceeded our expectations and I believe you were a major contributor to this end. Your professionalism was apparent in the manner with which you kept the afternoon flowing so smoothly and on schedule. Ticket sales would not have been so high without your encouragement throughout the afternoon to get the ladies to buy more tickets. Your running commentary to the fashion parade was also a major factor in maintaining audience interest in the beautiful fashions supplied by Nathan’s Boutique.
Once again thank you. I would thoroughly recommend you to any other organisation and would most definitely approach you for future functions that would require a Master of Ceremonies.Claire Capstick
An extraordinary amount of time and effort went into planning the day long Emerging Markets Forum – planning that can come undone very quickly on the day without a polished Master of Ceremonies. Thankfully our planning included David Wise as MC who had done his ‘homework’, welcoming the Queensland Trade Commissioners to China and South Korea in their languages, not to mention pronouncing their names correctly – acknowledged by all in the audience. David also studied the background of all the speakers and their field of expertise coming across very naturally and comfortable throughout the whole day – a very accomplished MC.Peter Peterson
