It takes plenty of natural talent, confidence and sheer hard work to perform when thrust into the spotlight to host an event, as veteran Singaporean emcee Sharlyn Lim can probably tell you.
“First of all, we begin on a stage that separates us from the audience. You’ve to know your script, reach out and connect with the audience while being mindful of certain taboo issues. The same method of ‘rah-rahing’ the crowd may not even work with every audience you get,” she says, flashing a knowing look.
Yet here stands a beautiful young lady who has hosted hundreds of events both in Singapore and abroad; across three continents. These range from keynotes and seminars of IT giant IBM and international bank OCBC, to high fashion events for designer label Marc Jacobs and skincare label Bioessence and even stage events at shopping malls or Family Days.
She has even shared the stage with international celebrities like Taiwanese pop group S.H.E, Investment Guru Jim Rogers and certain Hongkong TVB stars.

Colin Seet is one of the most versatile, engaging and experienced professional masters of ceremony in the business today.
The performance of the emcee is the critical factor that distinguishes an excellent event from a mediocre one. The emcee is quite literally the face of an event – the personification of its purpose and character.
On his shoulders rest the not-inconsiderable weight of the event’s success and the efficacy of the delivery of its message. To ensure that this is achieved, the rule of thumb in Colin’s book is that the emcee must know his audience inside-out. He believes that the relationship between emcee and audience is irreplaceable. Colin’s skill and experience in front of a crowd are the catalysts that bring about this chemistry.
