In preparing to act as Master of Ceremonies weather political, charitable, entertainment etc., I find out everything I can about the organization, the person(s) I’m to introduce, the notable figures in the audience and the history of the event. I always begin with something they can all relate too, their sports team, their city, but most importantly for them to know, that I know something about them that is important to them and the evening. In other words, I have done my homework.
