How To Be A Good Presenter/MC
The position as presenter or MC is generally considered a prestigious role for events such as weddings, corporate functions or performances. Usually, a good presenter/MC is a good speaker, but it involves a different set of skills from giving a speech. In many ways the MC role can be more difficult. Aside of giving a good speeches to their audience, a good presenter/MC also hold the important tasks of introducing the speakers and keeping the whole schedule running on time. Here are some guides that will help you contribute to the success and help give your audience a good experience.
1. Know your event. Knowing what's going on and thus what you should talk about is everything. There's nothing more embarrassing for a presenter/MC than doing mistakes in telling uncorrected run downs to the audience, presenting wrong speakers, or busy asking someone else about the event in the middle presenting. The more you understand about the event, the clearer this will show in your presentation, announcements and speeches.
2. Establish your contact well in advance of before the event day. Your contact will tell you the schedule and order of events, allowing you to be prepared. Your preparation will let you focus on interacting with the crowd, instead of trying to be entertaining, and figure out what's going on at the same time. Remember, the more you understand about the event, the clearer this will show in your presentation, announcements and speeches. 3. Prepare for an opening. Craft a pertinent story that draws in your audience or make sure the guests are ready on their seat for the event before you introduce yourself, speakers, and thanking the sponsors and honoring. Greetings are common to use for the opening. Here some opening example and how to greets and welcome your audience/guest.
