Experienced Australian journalist and broadcaster, is also a fantastic MC
A seasoned presenter and communicator with 18 years experience in television and radio, Samantha Kume now brings her experience as a journalist and communicator to the corporate sector. Samantha will provide your organisation with a professional public image at important events including client and corporate functions, media launches, and community events and conferences. The high level of service Samantha delivers embraces her five key principles of what makes a truly great MC:
· Doesn’t just read a script but reads an audience! · Helps the speakers to shine, not steal their spotlight! · Keeps the event flowing and makes it flourish! · Adapts to change quickly and effortlessly! · Delivers an individual personal performance for each client!
At the closing night for sponsors of the Goodwill Games held in Brisbane, AOL Time Warner Chairman Ted Turner described Samantha’s abilities as “extraordinary” in particular commenting on her “professional approach and very personal style”.
Samantha’s vision as a Master of Ceremonies is to ensure that each client’s event is well prepared and executed, is entertaining but also delivered in the right tone with appropriate reinforcement of key corporate messages to the audience.
In order to deliver the level of service that meets a client’s expectations, Samantha’s approach is to develop a close working relationship, beginning at the preliminary stages when meetings are held to discuss the client’s needs, expected outcomes and key corporate messages. Clients are encouraged to draw on her experience in planning their event, with assistance available in many areas including scripting, program scheduling and the development of media opportunities. This level of involvement is mirrored in the lead up to and during the event, including rehearsals if required, ensuring a seamless event regardless of what challenges may arise.
Additionally, for conference clients, Samantha can provide specific media training workshops. Topics include Managing the Media and Using the Media. Other services include facilitating your important strategy sessions and assisting with your delivery of key messages by developing an interview program for key speakers.
