The Advantages Of Hiring From The MC Directory

  • Benefit from their event planning experience
    Our MCs are an experienced bunch – it’s one of the requirements before they can join the MC Directory. They will meet with you before the event to research your needs and requirements, discuss your ideas and offer their expert opinions. They’ll help your event vision and event theme become a stunning reality.
  • Entertain everyone
    Your MC will ensure that everyone has a fantastic time by adapting their delivery style to suit the audience and atmosphere of your unique event. Intelligent speaking, tasteful jokes and witty observations will keep everyone in a great mood.
  • Keep your event running to time
    Your MC will use a runsheet to ensure that each entertainment or speaking segment of your event starts and finishes on time.
  • Your guests won’t even notice if something goes wrong
    Things don’t always go to plan at live events. In fact, it’s almost certain. A speaker is late, the meals haven’t arrived yet … the guests probably won’t even notice with one of our experienced MCs smoothing it over with grace and tact.
  • Save Money with no agency fees to pay
  • Free up your own time
    Relax, and join in the event. Leave the stress to your MC.

Answers

Found a Master of Ceremonies you reckon is perfect for your event? Excellent! At the bottom of their profile, fill in the date, month and year of your event and click ‘Check Availability’.

If the MC already has a booking for that day, you can select a different date or search for a new MC.

If the MC is available, the website will display their contact details instantly. Usually, this includes a phone number, email address and online contact form. Don’t hesitate to get in touch – our MCs are extremely popular and get booked up fast!

If you sent an email or filled out the online contact form, you can expect a reply within 24 hours.

After you’ve contacted an MC and received a reply, they will answer your questions, discuss your ideas and, if you decide to hire them, guide you through the booking process. You’ll speak with your MC and book with them directly – it’s between the two of you.

We think this is the way it should be – the MC Directory doesn’t interfere or take a cut, which means that you get faster responses and better value.

Your professional Master of Ceremonies will keep your event running smoothly and to time.

Every MC is a real people-person, and gets on with everyone. Your MC will coordinate everyone present, including guests, catering staff, wedding planners, photographers, videographers, DJs, entertainers and the band.

Your MC will seamlessly segue one segment into the next. At a wedding, this might be from the cake cutting to the first dance. At a corporate event, it could be from welcoming the guests to introducing the first speaker.

Live events don’t always go to plan. Your MC will keep everything stress-free by tactfully managing disruptions and hiccups. Often, attendees won’t even realise that something went wrong. Your MC is trained to stay on task and be entertaining and organised no matter what happens.

Because your friend or colleague is not an experienced or professional Master of Ceremonies, they are unlikely to perform this role well.

Our confident, professional MCs know how to entertain, how to handle disruptions, how to segue from one entertainment or speaking segment to the next and how to keep everything running smoothly and to time. They’ve develop this expertise after MCing hundreds of events.

Inexperienced speakers often panic and falter on stage, stumble over their words, are completely disorganised and resort to inappropriate jokes as a last-ditch attempt to salvage their role. It’s painful to watch.

Even if your friend or colleague is an experienced public speaker, we think it’s a terrible idea to ask them to ‘work’ at your event – MCing is a lot of work! Ask them to make a fantastic speech or toast instead.

We think it’s a much better idea to let your friend or colleague relax and enjoy the event right along with you.

Your Master of Ceremonies will arrive at the venue at least one hour before the guests arrive. They’ll meet the staff, check the sound equipment, revise the runsheet with the function manager and take care of any last minute tasks.
