Hiring a Master of Ceremonies an event can be a daunting task. Some events are straight forward and you may just need someone who looks the part to read a few lines at the front.

Master of Ceremonies Testimonials
Aside from my work as a Master of Ceremonies I also do work as a entertainer. This means I can play a range of games with your guests to keep them entertained. My games can be played in small groups, at tables or in front of large audiences.
My games can be played as ice breakers to get people talking, for competitions, to help raise money or just for pure entertainment. Being clear on the demographics of the audience is key to choosing the best style of game for any event. For example, a game played with a mostly male audience in their 20s would be played completely differently for an audience with mostly women in their 50s.
What A Standard Master of Ceremonies Does
A standard Master of Ceremonies will make announcements throughout your event, announcing acts and speakers. He/she may even partly manage your event, helping you to keep things on time.
Here’s the truth that most standard Master of Ceremonies don’t want you to know.
Firstly most Master of Ceremonies have very little or virtually no experience in the entertainment industry, giving them very little stage presence. Stage presence is key to holding the listening of an audience and delivering material in a way that you keep everyone engaged.
Secondly, most Masters of Ceremonies have a limited ability to improvise and next to no event management skills. Both of these things are important because anything can happen during a live event. The power could cut, a speaker may forget his/her lines, another supplier could make a huge mistake that you never saw coming.
Unless your Master of Ceremonies has the confidence to go off-script and the experience to think of quick, on-the-spot solutions to problems that arise then your event may be at risk.

What I Do As A Master of Ceremonies and How Is That Different?
The best place to start to explain how I’m different from a standard Master of Ceremonies is by looking at my experience and linking this to some key points.
Entertainment & Comedy Experience
I’ve been a freelance TV presenter for Fox, Warner, Universal, I’ve been involved with several comedy projects and I’m very active on YouTube, with close to 3 million views. I also run a separate entertainment business gameshowhire.co.uk, where I take popular Game Show formats into corporate environments for entertainment purposes.
As a Master of Ceremonies, this experience gives me the ability to go off-script if I ever need to and if a filler for time is ever needed I can play a range of games with your guests to keep them entertained.
Business & Event Management Experience
I’ve built and sold 4 businesses, with my first business being an event management company. As a Master of Ceremonies, this enables me to keep a calm head under pressure and to come up with out-of-the-box solutions to any problems at an event if they were to arise.
