By Platinum Speakers

We all know about the annual staff event, awards dinner, conference or celebration that needs to be better than the last one, however the budget needs to be stretched. So often is the case that to save money, ‘Barry the Managing Director can do it’.

Sounds good in theory and Barry might be ok, but if you want to raise the bar bringing greater appeal and professionalism to your function, perhaps you should consider using a professional MC. When you invest so much money and effort into a special event don’t you think it’s important to use a professional MC to host it.

The MC is representing your organization and the occasion, so if they impress, provide that extra polish and professionalism then it’s a direct reflection of the success of the event.

All too often companies spend more on the food and beverage budget.  Sadly, they sometimes overlook other important details, such as the Master of Ceremonies.

There’s a noticeable difference between having your keynote speaker introduced by a professional, or by that nice guy from ‘Accounts Payable’ … or even worse, the office comedian!

Your audience will notice the difference and it’s often what everybody will go home talking about.




  1. It adds to the professionalism, credibility and importance of your event. 

  2. It provides an external pair of eyes on your business, an un-biased viewpoint and a clear perspective on the event, with a strong desire to help you achieve your outcomes. 

  3. A professional MC could be a television celebrity, media professional, sporting champion or comedian also attracting draw card appeal to your event. 

  4. A professional MC will keep your program on time and on track – and will help bring a presentation to a close if required or even help to avoid any embarrassing moments such as a co-worker struggling with the role or delivering some bad or inappropriate jokes. 

  5. A professional MC will provide the right balance of entertainment and humour, poignancy, even comedy throughout the role relevant to the occasion and event. 

  6. They will provide support for your speakers in various ways, perhaps assisting them should they be struggling, introduce and thank them with appropriate sensitivity for the individual and their topic. 

  7. A professional MC will ‘think on the spot’ should there be any unforeseen technical or program hitches, scheduling changes or behind the scene problems where your audience would be unaware. 

  8. They will keep the audience engaged and do their best to energise the room throughout the day or evening particularly for a large event or conference if there are any unforeseen gaps in the program. 

  9. The Q&A or audience feedback sessions are handled more professionally with a professional MC facilitating proceedings. 

  10. A professional MC allows you (the organiser) to relax and concentrate on other important details. 

All in all, this is an investment that will reap rewards a plenty for both your business image and the message you want to convey to your audience.
