Albert Was Right! New E-book Release
E=Emcee Squared: Tips & Techniques to Becoming a Dynamic Master of Ceremonies by Rae A. Stonehouse.
In this practical, easy to use e-book, Rae A. Stonehouse a.k.a. Mr. Emcee, of Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada puts the “Master” in Master of Ceremonies. He shares tips & techniques that he has learned over the years in becoming a dynamic Master of Ceremonies.
Officiating as a Master of Ceremonies at an event is a lot like looking at an iceberg floating in the water. The public only sees what is happening at the event … the tip of the iceberg. They don’t see what has happened behind the scenes or under the water, so to speak, to make everything look like it is running smoothly.
Have you ever heard this said “Our next speaker needs no introduction …” Well, if that’s true mister/madam emcee, then why do we need you? As a Master of Ceremonies your role is to build excitement about each and every speaker or presenter that is on your agenda.
While developing and honing my speaking skills at countless Toastmasters meetings and introducing hundreds of speakers and their speeches over the years, I have developed an appreciation for the value of an effective introduction. Whether you are introducing a speaker/presenter, presenting an award or introducing a person that will be taking on a role in the program, a professionally written and delivered introduction can exponentially increase the effectiveness of the person that you are introducing.
