Being creative and having the ability to speak fluently and effectively are essential for an emcee or presenter. An intelligent and witty Master of Ceremonies or presenter is very vital in anchoring or presenting a programme or event at the ministerial, departmental as well as mukim and village levels. The matter was highlighted by Awang Haji Muhammad Suffian bin Haji Bungsu, the Director of Radio Television Brunei at the closing ceremony of the Master of Ceremonies Workshop at Dewan Muafakat of the Government Departments Building in Bangar Town in Temburong District.
According to Awang Haji Muhammad Suffian, it is the obligation and responsibility of the workshop participants to understand the role and responsibility of the emcees or presenters, protocol and titles as well as voice projection. A thorough preparation and good script writing techniques should also be given priority. Besides that good mental, physical preparation and a complete script would make it easier for the participants to steer an event in an orderly, effective and professional manner.
During the closing ceremony, 35 people received their Certificate of Participation from Yang Berhormat Awang Haji Emran bin Haji Sabtu, Member of the Legislative Council. The workshop taught the participants aspects such as preparing the presenter's script, protocol and ethics as well guidelines for effective presentation.
