Being a MC for a seminar

My heart’s still drumming at the moment when thinking of day I acted as a MC for my company’s seminar. It was the first time I was in the role. Yet everything has its beginning, and being well-prepared is a key to success.

Just want to share a MC script for those who might be in need in future

Enjoy 🙂
