Here are a few responsibilities of MC.
Set the scene
As a host of the event, the MC is responsible to set the tone or personality of the event. thus, when choosing an MC, make sure you have a fair knowledge of the audience demographics. You must have answers to the following questions.
- What can grab your audience’s attention?
- What is general age, gender, income, ethnicity of the audience?
- What value do they hold dear?
Answers to these questions influence the audience needs, interests and want. Every group of audience has different needs. Make sure you understand the audience demography before choosing an MC.
Engage The Audience
If the event starts on a good note, the audience is interested to hear more. The MC is required to keep the audience engaged right from the beginning till the end. The MC help keep the audience focused on the event by providing structural pauses between the sessions. He may also use humor or commentary to reenergize the audience and maintain their focus.
Moreover, MC works with the crowd in line with the objective of the event. For instance, if the event is organized to raise funds, you need to hire an MC who can convince people to dig deep and purchase the raffle tickets, bid on the items or donate money.
