Why hire a Corporate MC*?
Getting your mate from Marketing to MC sounds like a good idea in theory… but it’s ruined many promising careers.
Because there are always definite objectives behind every corporate function, MCing a business event requires a lot of research, planning and experience. It’s far more high-pressure than making friends laugh in the office. It’s a job that requires unique skills and training, and can be extremely stressful for the inexperienced.
There’s a big difference between being a funny guy, and having practiced, appropriate material that’s guaranteed to make people smile. The MC knows how to create the right kind of fun, humorous atmosphere no matter what the circumstances are – that’s why they’re called professionals.
There’s a lot for the MC to organise and take care of; things could easily go wrong. It’s painful to see your colleague struggle and falter onstage, and it brings the whole event right down.
Hiring a Corporate MC is one of the best decisions a company event planner can make.
Hiring a professional shows your attendees that you’re taking this event seriously. Our elegant MCs have hosted hundreds of product launches, business openings, annual parties, and other corporate functions.
They raise the calibre of your event by creating the right atmosphere, being entertaining, keeping time, working closely with venue staff and smoothing over unforeseen circumstances with complete confidence and poise.
Your Event Host MC will understand the company culture.
Our corporate MCs chat with you beforehand to understand the company’s history, achievements, goals, departmental heroes and amusing anecdotes. They use this material to make your event unique, special and memorable.
