I had a chance to work with Sylvia at the Youth Olympic Games Kids Sports Challenge where she was the emcee. Besides displaying a flair for entertaining hundreds of children (and adults) everyday, she was very versatile and took the extra effort to do her job well. The audience was captivated by her liveliness and charisma whenever she charisma whenever she went on stage to host the sessions. She was indeed the right person for the job and I will definitely engage and recommend her for future events. Keep up the fantastic work!
An emcee sets the tone for a particular event. She determines the energy level throughout and is responsible for keeping on schedule and establishes the kind of feeling the event organizers want.
An emcee has to have a pleasant stage presence, who is gracious, personable and flexible, who can think on their feet, keep many balls in the air at the same time, not get easily flustered, and calmly handle the unexpected.
She must knows how to set the appropriate tone for the specific session, carefully manage the time while maintaining a positive energy flow throughout the entire session, and who can make audiences/guests feel welcomed, special, comfortable and respected.
An emcee must be willing to put the time and effort into preparing succinct and willing to take instructions from organizers/clients too.
