Entering the page of event MC in HelloToby, you will see tons of positive reviews of Iki written by the customers – not only being professional, Iki is also detailed-oriented and thoughtful throughout the ceremony. With Iki’s heart-warming smile and proficient attitude, Iki has had experienced to be emerging.
Like more of us, Iki was an MC in competitions at secondary school. This experience, however, became an important turning point of Iki to encourage her life-long career since then. Iki first tried to be MC in a singing contest at school. It was all going smooth until both Iki and her partner forgot the name of the song that the candidate was going to sing. “It was lucky that we hold the competition in a casual style, so we said, ‘maybe it is good to let the candidate to introduce his song himself!’” It was a breathtaking, but inspiring, moment for Iki that it is important to react spontaneously to be an MC.
Other than the spontaneous reaction on stage, a spontaneous response to the clients is also important. Iki treasures the most the notification function in HelloToby – once there is a targeted client, Pros are able to receive a notification from HelloToby and send a quote to the client directly in real-time, to treasure most opportunities to get contact to the clients.
Pros on HelloToby are qualified and verified, taking Iki as example, whom has already been granted a professional MC certificate with great knowledge on how an MC could aid the event running smoothly. Not only the theories, experiences on stage also grow Iki to be a better MC. “I quite like ad-libbing”, that ad-libbing the speech is one of the most difficult but main roles of a good MC, “I become a more encouraging person as I have to present the events in a positive way”. Iki once faced an embarrassing situation that the groom was drunk and was not able to focus on stage for the ceremony. “I tried to distract the awkwardness by talking on other more positive topics”, Iki shows her detail-mindedness.
Other than pondering on the speech, Iki also supports in arranging the rundown with clients’ essentials and background. The tailor-made speech presents different clients' distinction, which requires Iki to understand each client enough before events. “Many couples would consider asking their friends to be their MCs as they suppose their friends know both the bride and groom enough. In fact, there are many stories between the couples that only shared by them, and me”, Iki said and smiled as if she was the bride.
