I’m not an emcee.  I’m a content weaver.

Yup, a corporate emcee is a valuable addition to your conference.  We keep the energy going.  We set up the audience so they are ready to LEARN from the next speaker.  We are there to make sure the pacing is good. And that we stay on time.

But wouldn’t be it be cooler if your emcee did more?  What if they connected the dots for your attendees — helping them to make sense of the information they are receiving by connecting the General Session to the 2nd Breakout to the Closing Session?

That’d be funny.  That’d be useful.  That’d be a great idea.  That’s be…me.

Content Weaver is what we call it.  Check out this short video to explain.

CORPORATE EMCEE: THE ROLES AND WHAT ONE SHOULD KNOW

A corporate emcee, MC or master of ceremonies is a person who officiates at events such as weddings, social functions and other corporate events. The work of an emcee is an exciting one and anyone interested in this line of work should know several things in order to do the job effectively and efficiently. He should be able to know the specific roles related to the job so that he can be able to oversee the progress of the event smoothly and without any hitches. Some of the practices that an emcee should keep in mind are:

  • Know your role

A corporate emcee should be able to recognise his role and be able to carry his responsibilities Brad-Montgomery-Fullaccordingly. Not only should he be aware of his tasks but should also be able to connect his roles with the specific event he’s officiating.

  • Know the speakers and introduce them accordingly

A good emcee should know each of the speakers at the event by name and by face so that he can be able to introduce them to the audience without mistakes or errors.

  • Know the schedule and keep the event on schedule

A good master of ceremonies should keep time and ensure that the event goes on smoothly and seamlessly. He should be able to adjust breaks and event transitions when he realises that the event is behind schedule.

  • Know the content of the event

The role of an emcee is not confined to introductions of speakers only. A good emcee should be knowledgeable on the subject matter of the event so that he can connect with the program and even comment appropriately

  • Know the audience

The age group and the type of audience at the event should be kept in mind by an emcee so that he can present the program and any other activities accordingly.

  • Keep the audience energized

A good corporate emcee should be able to read the mood of the audience and be able to make them focused on the event. He should be able to integrate an energizing activity when the attendees become too bored and calm them down when they are too excited.

  • Tie everything together

The role of an emcee is to ensure that all programs at the event progress smoothly and the sequence of the programs is seamless.

When an aspiring emcee keeps all this in mind, then he is sure of delivering a seamless event program and thereby increasing his prospects as a successful emcee.

Three Tips For Making Your Next Meeting Epic

Planning an epic meeting means creating an experience of value for ALL attendees—from the newbies to the veterans. Everyone who attends needs to feel like it was the best meeting ever and that they got so much out of the event that they can’t afford to miss it next year.

What Do You Have in Common With a 3rd grader?

Third graders love to be told they are doing a good job. They love it when you tell them they did that math problem perfectly, or that their coloring is looking awesome. Who doesn’t love that kind of feeling? As we age, we still maintain that basic desire for acknowledgement. But for some reason, the frequency in which we receive that kind of acknowledgment and encouragement diminishes. But we STILL thrive on those types of compliments.

Funny Master of Ceremonies

How do you know if your emcee or Master of Ceremonies is any good?

Brad Montgomery is a very funny master of ceremonies and corporate emcee.  At a recent Awards Banquet for North Kansas City Hospital Brad kept the pace lively, the levity on high while still honoring their top people.

Let’s admit it it, though awards banquets are important and serve a vital purpose, they are often dull.  Not so when Brad is your emcee!

For this client, immediately following dinner Brad presented 25-25 minutes of his very funny motivational program.  People were laughing and excited for “something new.”  Brad’s a motivational speaker, but he’s more than that — he’s a laugh-out-loud- funny motivational speaker.   Then, after his motivational speech Brad started the awards banquet.  He announced the winners, cracked tasteful jokes throughout, and kept the inspiration and motivation going THROUGH the awards banquet.

Check out this letter of recommendation about Brad’s work as an emcee / master of ceremonies.

To Whom It May Concern:

We recently had the pleasure of having Brad Montgomery serve as emcee, speaker, and entertainer at our annual Employee Recognition Banquet.  We have a long history at North Kansas City Hospital of holding creative and successful events.  But our previous event design had simply run its course, and it was time for a change.  At the same time, we wanted to retain certain aspects of our program that we believed were an important part of our culture.

Brad did a great job of understanding our desire to marry the old and the new, as well as our desire to keep the event to a reasonable length.  He was fast paced, funny, and respectful of our long-term staff.  He engaged members of the audience in a way that we have never before experienced, and had everyone from our honorees to our Board members having a great time.  One of our 30 year employees made it a point to visit my office a day or two after the banquet to let me know that of all the events she has attended over the years, this one was the best.  She stated she felt so honored that she is planning to stay another 30 years!  Others have continued to provide positive feedback, and I believe their feelings about the event are directly related to the work that Brad did on our behalf.

I freely admit that I was the member of our team who was most skeptical about this format.  While I think I have a good sense of humor, I am not a fan of the “schtick” of stand up comedians.  But Brad was different, and so much more than an entertaining speaker.  He struck the right balance of humor, motivation, and respect, and he was the right person at the right time for our Hospital.  I am honored to recommend him without reservation for your event.

Sincerely,

Beverly Johnston
Vice President
Human Resources
North Kansas City Hospital
