SAMPLE EMCEE SCRIPT

At the beginning, they just needed me to help and I cannot say no when someone ask me or help. Without any training or prior knowledge of how to handle event, I became an emcee for a sporting event. I was surprised how natural it was to be an emcee and I felt guilty accepting money for having lots of fun the whole morning. Then I was asked to be the emcee for a formal function - an award giving ceremony. I felt awkward since it was to be done in Bahasa Malaysia. I was self-conscious of my own Bahasa pronunciation. I grew up speaking a local dialect and likened the formal Bahasa Malaysia to be a second language to me. To top that, I did not know much about the address system used mostly in Bahasa speeches. Yes, I'm talking about when to use the term Yang Berusaha, Yang Berhormat, Yang Berbahagia as such. That event went successfully but my lack of mastery in address system was glaring. After a few years and many events, we've now become a faculty from just a language centre, I was sent for a course in emceeing. That was a great help really. I learned the arts of the trade in emceeing. One thing I realise is that everyone has a potential to be an emcee. For many, the fear of facing the audience stop the from venturing any further. Then everyone has to deal with nervousness, but only those who can successfully controlling and managing it can do it. External factors such as the audience, formality of the function, the size of the room or hall, the location of the function, all of it play part in how well one can manage his or her nervousness. Sadly to say that when searching for emcee script on the internet,I didn't find many. I also had calls from junior colleagues asking for a sample of emcee script since they were asked to be an emcee for some events. I did tell the Dean to pass the emcee job to newcomers as everyone benefits from the exposure. But I still get appointed to be emcee for national or international conferences, especially when an emcee to handle event in English language is needed. So, my intention for this entry is really to share some of the emcee scripts that are in my collection through out the years. For starters, I upload one from last weekend.
