Ever needed to emcee for an event, yet not know the first thing about being an event host or a master of ceremonies (MC)?

Public speaking itself is widely regarded as the number one fear of people across age, cultures and genders… and the additional pressure of taking the role of an event host as an MC (aka emcee), at important events such as a weddings/ roadshows/ seminars/ conferences/ recitals/ parties/ company-D&D by your family/manager/boss does little to ease the jitters.
Over the last 10 years, we’ve helped thousands of people overcome their fears of public speaking, and hundreds more become effective emcees with little or no hosting experience.
