My assignment was to be the “Emcee” for a function held by office.
Although it only lasted for about an hour, the experience learnt was simply “unquantifiable” !!.
Amongst the things I learnt was to “multi-task” – hence, to check the movements of the speakers on the stage and to try to match it with my script, to practice the names of the persons and their respective titles, in future, to make sure that my script has a larger font size so that I would not be squinting my eyes to decipher the words and to quickly inform the audience of any change of events.
All in all, for a First attempt (outside the safe and familiar “Toastmasters” settings), it was an enjoyable experience and I was happy to partake and be able to learn from the experience !!.
