Awards Hosts, Presenters, MC Speakers

Awards hosts: a great MC makes the difference between an event and a fantastic event. Empathy, humour, timing, insight, intelligence, personality – that’s all you need. During 2020 with most shows going online demands on a host have been just as great. We advise on choosing a candidate for the very special role they have to fulfil in the virtual awards space.
Specialist Speakers is always delighted to sponsor award shows ourselves – we understand their value we have supported more than a hundred Chartered Institute of Public Relations live awards events.
