The presenter’s profession, in spite of its apparent lightness and “permanent fun”, has its own difficulties and pitfalls. We will talk about how to come into this sphere, where to start and how to achieve success in our article today.
Listen to yourself
If you want to build a career in the field of event management, first of all, you need to have an innate disposition or talent for this. As a rule, those who are called the ringleader and the soul of the company become leaders. Such people like to start a crowd and they are drawn to work in areas saturated with events and associated with constant communication.
What do you need to be able to?
With regard to professional skills, it is necessary to have a competent and clean speech. Often the leading events are people with theatrical education, so it involves classes in stage speech and voice production. however, an actor is not always a good presenter, and a good presenter is not necessarily an actor. Acting education is a good base, but not the only career path.
You need to constantly engage in self-education, struggle with vernacular words, dialects, expand your horizons. After all, the real leader should be able to turn the conversation in the direction he needs, maintain a conversation with the guests and attract attention with interesting facts. It is very useful to be able to sing or dance - this will give room for working with the audience, and most importantly - it will help to come up with your own "chip" that distinguishes you from your competitors. Imagine when guests say about you: "Such a wonderful host! And you know, he also sings great!"
Create your image
The host is not an actor, he should not create another person from himself. He should be an improved version of himself, show his best qualities and hide negative traits. Most importantly, do not go too far. Do not forget that the event that you host is a celebration of your guests, not your benefit.
If you are just starting your career in a profession and you don’t have any experience at all, then it’s best to try to go to a professional’s assistant - to travel with him to events, to see how he works, to learn the whole “kitchen” from the inside. Create your own group on social networks or an Instagram account and publish stories and photos from projects in which you take part, make acquaintances with famous people in your city and try to rotate in professional circles. The more media you get, the better. In addition, orders can be sought through friends. Firstly, starting in a circle of less familiar people is not so scary, and secondly, word of mouth still works. Try all means!
Secret of success
To achieve success, first of all, you need to start precisely from the sphere where you are comfortable. In order to conduct presentations and serious events, you must be able to communicate with officials and have a good memory. If you can ignite the crowd, then why not delve into the conduct of areal events. Perfectly find a common language with children - children's matinees are your element. But do not go in cycles. There are many leaders specializing in weddings, but this does not mean at all that they will not be able to hold a corporate party. They just have their own charm and they use it.
To master the profession of leading, there are many different courses and master classes. Practice, do not be afraid to take the first steps, try new things and achieve success!
