Whether you refer to them as the MC (or Emcee), Master (or Mistress) of Ceremonies, or Programme Director, the role is the same. A professional compere or host, at any event, can, and usually does, make all the difference in terms of the perceived flow of its proceedings. And how do you know whether a person will be a good MC or merely an adequate one? Or worse still, totally inappropriate?
Experience counts for so much when it comes to this sort of work. One of the prime considerations, is the experience that an MC has. It’s all very well having a famous face, but that doesn’t automatically mean that you can entertain a crowd and keep the level of interaction at just the right pitch. The talent of the individual and the level of client satisfaction feedback that follows every event is taken very much into account.
There are also many other considerations such as: how good is the Master of ceremonies or that person at ad-libbing ? After all, many events require this particular skill from the host; or would the client like an MC (master of ceremonies) who can also entertain ?
Experience, a love of people and most importantly, the ability to meet the client’s objective and the mood of the audience. So many considerations – but with Rod Briggs on your side, it doesn’t need to be difficult.
