A good emcee is the glue that holds your event together or the WD-40 that keeps things running smoothly (whichever metaphor you prefer). If you want to keep the energy up and attendees focused at your next conference, bring in Steve to be your event emcee.

As your emcee he will:

  • Add excitement to your event without stealing the spotlight.
  • Review the script and offer suggestions about the event schedule (when needed).
  • Make your leaders and the other speakers look like heroes.
  • Make “housekeeping announcements” and fun and engaging.
  • Bring just the right touch of (appropriate) humor.
  • Offer spontaneous “call backs” to things and events from earlier in the conference.
  • Provide short, fun “Here’s What You Missed” session recaps if you’d like.
  • Never allow the meeting to drag.
  • Be well-prepared to introduce other speakers.
  • Make any awards banquet fun and memorable.
  • Fill time at a moment’s notice. Or, shave time to keep everything on schedule.

In our conference evaluations we had several people say that Steve (our emcee) and not the big-time keynote speaker, was the highlight of the conference. We’ve never had our members mention an emcee by name before.

This was the best event we’ve ever had and Steve’s emcee work was a big part of its success.

Steve was so effective in his appeal as emcee/fundraiser, he made me want to donate money I didn’t have.
