Master of Ceremonies (Emcee):
A Master of Ceremonies is the official host of an event and ensures the event flows smoothly. There are a few basic functions or duties of a master of ceremonies. They are to:
- Make introductory and closing remarks
- Introduce speakers, sponsors, distinguished guests
- Keep the program moving along smoothly
- Handle the housekeeping items and announcements
- Improvise to keep the program on track when things don’t go as planned
The conference moderator facilitates the discussion between panel members and manages the questions from the audience, keeping the conversation on topic and moving forward.
A conference moderator is tied to the objectives and the strategy behind the meeting. A moderator is brought in to provide a bridge, linking the content from the presenter to the audience. Many times the moderator will facilitate the Q & A session with the presenter, allowing the content to be explained in more detail and providing real-world examples on how to implement the information being presented.
If your executive is looking for more “face-time” with the audience, consider an on-stage interview instead of a prepared speech. The interview questions are tailored to ensure all the main points are addressed and covered. This allows the executive to be more relatable to the audience and diminishes the idea that the executives are disconnected from what is going on within the organization.
Two-Way Interactions Between Presenters and Audience:
The moderator also handles Q&A with the audience, managing the conversation to provide the most value for the audience. If a virtual, online, hybrid component is part of the event, the moderator will facilitate engagement of both the face-to-face audience and the remote audience.
