If you want to project an excellent image for your event, do so with a excellent Master of Ceremonies. The success of an event, more often than not, rest in the hands of the Master of Ceremonies.
With years of Emcee experience there aren't many situations I can't handle. I have been Emcee for several "Miss America" preliminary pageants. For over 8 years I was the "voice" of the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation, providing narration for the "Sky Soldiers" Air Show Demonstration Team. I served as Emcee for the Polk County, GA Chamber of Commerce annual "Homespun" festival for years. I have been the Emcee for many fundraising events at "RockStock", a well known venue for outdoor musical shows, including visiting Nashville "talent".
I fully understand, and adhere to an Emcee's main task, which is to introduce performers or speakers in a way that puts them at ease, announce items on the agenda and recognize sponsors. I perform each of these tasks in a timely fashion, to ensure a seamless transition between sections of the program and keep the event moving at a steady pace within time constraints. I am comfortable in all environments, including business or sales meetings, any type musical event, or wedding receptions.
My professional demeanor, on and off stage has made me a top choice for various type events. I am an accomplished public and inspirational speaker. I have a unique ability to keep an event on schedule which is an asset to any venue. My humor, and quick wit, being able to think on my feet, is important to a successful program.
