Meet Your Host

Half day one-to-one coaching for those acting as event compere, host or MC or chairing panels and sessions at conferences.

Compering or hosting an event is a very different skill to speaking but Is a very useful ‘string’ for any speaker or business leader to add to their bow. The compere or Chair sets the tone of the whole event and can make or break an event. Too many business leaders put themselves forward for hosting roles without the skills to make a success of it.

Coaching sessions will be developed in response to your specific skills, needs and events but most will include:

  • Understanding the nature and tone of the event to ensure you can enhance it
  • Developing a compere ‘script’
  • Using humour to connect with your audience
  • Working with speakers, technicians and event organisers
  • Introducing people – and writing their introductions
  • Chairing panels, Q&A sessions etc
  • Hosting awards, auctions and other specific types of event
  • Dealing with the unexpected
  • ‘Filling’ on stage when things don’t happen as expected
  • Compere as stage manager, director and producer
