• As with any outside talent, the more information about your company and culture you can share, the better prepared the emcee will be.
• Be sure to fill the host in on industry lingo and acronyms.
• Determine the emcee's delivery preference and comfort zone before finalizing
audiovisual needs. Some hosts work best with Teleprompters; others might need a full script in advance, while still others can deliver great results from just a few notes.
• Be sure to include the host in rehearsals.
