The Power Of Voice.

Kursus Pengacaraan Dan Protokol Majlis Rasmi @ PPD Klang

The art of MCEEing with confidence : Master of Ceremonies.

A master of ceremonies. ( MC) is the official host of a staged event or similar performance. An MC usually presents performers, speaks to the audience, and generally keeps the event moving. An MC also tell jokes or anecdotes. The MC sometimes also acts as the protocol officer during an official state function.

Being an MC is not a light job. As a master of ceremonies, you have to think on your feet and be able to make quick , thoughtful comments, to summarize a speech and to connect it with the next one - and do all these things in a manner that warms your audience's hearts.

All the responsibility for a successful event rests on your shoulders! As a host, you play a critical role in setting the tone for the event. You have a very large influence on the success of the event in general. The key thing is to prepare properly.

How to be a good master of ceremonies :

1. Know your event.
The key to being a good MC is confidence. Knowing what's going on ( and thus what you should talk about ) is everything.

2. Establish your contact well in advance of the event day.
Knowing the schedule and order of events allowing you to be prepared. Your preparation will let you focus on interacting with the crowd, instead of trying to be entertaining, and figure out what's going on at the same time.

3. Smile constantly.
Smiling shows the crowd that you're at ease and having a good time. You want them to be at ease and have a good time too.

4. Don't forget your main job is to talk to the crowd.
You're keeping them informed about the ceremony and giving the talent. Or featured individual time to prepare to go onstage.

5. Study your lines.
Usually people have lines before they do the actual thing. So, study them so your mind won't go blank during the show.

6. Don't stop when you mess up.
Sometimes people say the wrong things when they're talking because they're nervous. Don't stress and move on.

7. Try to be funny.
Nobody likes a dull host.

8. Stare at something or think of something that makes you " less " nervous.

9. Slow down with your words.
If you talk too fast it can lead to stuttering and people watching you can't understand what you say.

10. Ask questions that people might answer.
Especially younger crowds with answer " yes " or " no " if you ask a question. It keeps them focused and they won't get distracted.

~ Believe in yourself ! Have faith in your abilities ! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy ~

To remain competitive in the world
To achieve our goal.

Innovation is, as simple as taking something existing and transforming it to something that :
Creates new wealth or improves the well-being of society or both.
If you're doing any of this already, you're an innovator.
An innovation can be big or small. Brand new or just smart phone. A little bit different, it doesn't matter. But it all has to start with an idea.

It takes only 3 simple steps :
One day an idea was born. Other great mind like that idea.
The idea was then tossed around, dexeptneremi, experimented and materialized into usable prototype.
As more people used, tested and approved the idea, the more that simple idea made sense and cents !

~ To get others to come into our ways of thinking, we must go over to theirs ;
and it is necessary to follow, in order to lead ~
Let your performance do the thinking.

 "Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So, get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger, and more skilled, more self-confident and more successful"

For a skill to be strength , it must be something that is done with consistency. The secret to inner strength is being able to replicate moments of success so there is a predictable outcome. Spend time, growing your strong points, not on strengthening your weak ones.

How to strengthen character :

:D Know what constitutes strength in character
:D Understand why strength of character is important to yourself and especially to others
:D The most important way to strengthen your character is to emphatize with others, especially the weaker souls, and love others as yourself
:D Seek the truth
:D Be neither a pessimist nor optimist, but a leader
:D Guard against irrational impulses
:D Be content with your lot
:D Be brave enough to take calculated risks
:D Dismiss foreign suggestions contrary to the resolution you are fixed upon
:D Learn to do good and eschew evil
:D Learn to master your feelings
:D Be neither prodigal, nor miserly, but seek the middle ground
:D Be calm in all things
:D Focus on the positives in life, and give no thought to the negatives
:D Oppose fatalism
:D Have patience
:D Conquer all fears
:D Just as a gardener must remove all the weed to grow his crops, so you must likewise dispel your mind all feeble thoughts to clear the soil for strength
:D Exercise coolness, circumspection, discernment, and prudence in business
:D Always be truthful in all things and every aspect of life
:D Excel wherever you are, and do your best. In whatever you do

Fill your mind with light, hope and feelings of strength, and soon your life will reflect these qualities.

~ The goal of mankind, however, is to keep an eye on the top of pyramid and to climb as steadily as possible. We may stumble at times and we may leap forward at times. No matter how far we fall backward, however, the road back up is easier since we already know the way. KEEP CLIMBING ~
