To create a lasting experience for the delegates, the Event Host is part Cruise Director and part Ship’s Captain.
As Captain Warwick will MC the conference, dinner, award ceremony or perform a keynote or “break out session”. He ensures all activities are going smoothly and takes the ship where it needs to go. This can encompass ensuring the run sheet is timing is adhered to, linking corporate messages throughout the function or filling in, if necessary, to maintain the smooth flow of the event.
The Cruise Director role kicks in when we leave the conference room. It is not unusual to commentate the beach cricket, keep people amused while playing golf, host an awards ceremony or facilitate the strategy session to set the organisations direction for the next 12 months.
Warwick’s proven track record, experience in TV, theatre and radio, as well as the depth of business experience he brings to the table, all come to the fore in his conference hosting.
While particularly suited to incentive trips and strategic workshop sessions, he is being more frequently asked to perform this role because of the value-for-money achieved by having an all-inclusive rate for the MC, Speaker, Facilitator and Consultant role.
