Each event requires an emcee or master of ceremony (MC or emcee). There is also a leader or chairman of the organization who doubles as MC in internal meetings and also for the corporate events.
Here I share how to be a host (MC) in general and concise.
Main Duty MC: TEAM
We start from the main task of MC summarized in TEAM:
T = Time, Time. Namely ensure the event takes place on time, start and end, also the duration of the performers.
I = Introducing, Introducing. Namely introducing the performers, speakers, speakers, also recall the name and purpose of the event, and announced the arrangement of the event.
M = Mood. That is to arouse the audience and excitement of the event, for example, give command of the audience’s applause. (Effective Emcee-ing)
In addition, the MC is “Star Maker”, the star creator. That is, the host must try to make the performers look stunning and satisfy the audience.
MC should not try to be a star because his job is to create a star instead of trying to make himself a star.
The announcer should strive to give the audience an appreciation and enthusiasm for listening to the performers.
How to Guided the Event: So MC
The event host (MC) is the first and last person to speak at an event.
MC is in charge of opening the event (opening speech) and closing it with the following general standards:
1. Signal to Start Signals, signals, signals, or signals to the audience that the event is about to begin.
For example Attendees, please attention, the event will begin soon.
2. Say (Greeting). Saying a greeting, for example, Good Morning.
3. Greet the audience (Welcome Speech), especially special guests, such as presenters, or officials present. For example Mr. Governor and our respected audience.
4. Introduce yourself. Applies to informal events. The informal event does not apply. For example, I -Ahmad Fulan- as the guide of this event …
5. Mention the name and purpose of the event. For example, … on behalf of the organizing committee, thank you for the presence of Mr / Mrs / Mrs at the [NAME] event.
6. Mention the arrangement of events. Applies to informal events. Formal events usually already have the order of events in the invitation.
For example, this event will begin with an opening, followed by a welcome, main event, and closing.
7. Introducing speakers (introducing the speakers). Name of the greeter simply by mentioning the title and full name.
For example, the first speech by the Chairman of the Committee Mr. Ahmad Fulan.
8. “Bridging” or coupling the event to the next event.
9. Closing contains thanks to the organizers, sponsors, performers, and attendees.
