Consider engaging a Master of Ceremonies, or MC, for your event – they will help to keep your audience engaged throughout the day and ensure the smooth running of your event.    They will create opportunities for interaction and ensure things roll on effortlessly, with nothing falling ‘between the cracks’. 

An experienced MC will recap the messages delivered after each speaker and skilfully link it with the next session of the day.  At the end of the event, they will expertly summarise and lock in the themes of the day, for the audience to take away with them.

When looking for an appropriate MC, consider someone who is lively and interactive to avoid dry spots through the day, especially if the subject matter is quite ‘dry’. 

Engaging an MC releases the Manager or CEO of these duties as well and allows them to join in on the event and be engaged in the activities, along with everyone else. With an MC looking after the run sheet you can be sure the main aims and objectives you want delivered at your event will be and isn’t that money well spent?!

This represents less than the normal commission a bureau would take from one or two engagements, where the gross speaker fee is around $6,500 + GST. This means you only need to convert one or two bookings and then you are saving yourself 25-30% for all additional bookings converted through BookSpeakersDirect.com. Several speakers we have spoken to are saying – this is a no-brainer!
