Business events host
"MCing is 40% of event management,
40% of social skills, 20% with a mic"
On the business side, I am Corporate Presenter and Facilitator.
I have hosted a wide variety of business events, from the serious in-depth interview style to the awards show. Eg: multichannel marketing campaigns ceremonies, banking sales conventions, business webinars, graduation ceremonies, technical round tables,...
I have experience in many fields: from IA to mobility, from silver economy to blue growth economy, from transport to agriculture,...
My role is, of course, to keep it all on time – politely but firmly. I also encourage the speakers to avoid jargon and prefer storytelling.
On the sports side, I have over 15 years experience in sports presentation.
I have been a Stadium Presenter, Master of Ceremonies at 45 Davis Cup and Fed Cup ties 2002-2016 in France (off Court: hosting Draw ceremonies, drawing up running orders, staging and timing on-court ceremonies ; on Court: presenting teams, launching national anthems, synthetising and emphasizing players’ records, interviewing players).
Also English & French Voice at the Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2021
Olympic and Paralympic Games, FIFA Women World Cup 2019,...
Finally, I am an International Tennis Referee, currently acting as Deputy Referee at Roland-Garros.
I gained valuable experience about the dimension of great big events and about how, beyond technical skills, interpersonal and behavioural skills are essential.
My style as MC certainly results from his Refereeing style: discretion, self-control and no over-excitement.
