Don't be an ordinary MC, don't be a boring MC, be a brilliant MC!
You've been invited to be the Master of Ceremonies at a wedding, an important conference, a retirement, a fund-raiser or an award's night. Congratulations. It can seem easy. Well at first! But once you start thinking about it you might start sweating and getting nervous. After all, there will be all those eyes on you as you give your master of ceremonies speeches. You've got to manage the timing, you've got to know what to say from the welcome speech to the closing remarks, and there are other master of ceremonies duties and jobs that must be done well. Oh, suddenly it doesn't seem quite so easy, does it?
Sadly, at conferences, weddings and concerts there are far more poor MCs than good ones ... you name the event and there will have been a Master of Ceremonies who struggled to hold the attention of the audience and did not know how to be brilliant.And, so many times I have sat through Master of Ceremonies speeches that have been simply boring, boring, boring. And then there are the ones who let performers or speakers drag on way past their time, or who are irrelevant. It's dreadful, isn't it? Make sure you are not like that - give brilliant speeches and be on top of your duties.
