Bob 'Idea Man' Hooey emcee, CAPS Foundation evening at the Global Speakers Summit

Besides a focus on keeping the event running smoothly and on time, engaging a professional emcee helps to foster emotional engagement and buy-in from your participants. This is a critical function for meetings and events which non-professional talent is often unable to provide. Professional emcees work to energize general sessions with witty, improvisational humor, illuminating/interactive introductions and relevant, smooth, consistent transitions. They work to keep the event focused, fun, and on target.

Being a professional MC requires pre-planning, working with the meeting planner to explore the ultimate needs and outcomes of the event. It also means being an active and sometimes creative partner in helping to organize and schedule the event for maximum impact and enjoyment.

And, at times, it means putting yourself in the center of the action, perhaps at risk for the enjoyment and engagement of your audience.

Over the years Bob has assisted his clients in hosting well run, engaging events and meetings around the globe.

  • Awards ceremonies
  • Conventions and conferences
  • Specialized workshops and training events
  • Annual General Meetings
